Been waiting for an L2501 since June
I'm in a similar boat. Ordered an L2501 1st week in August. Was quoted about 3 months. At the turn of the new year the salesman told me delivery to the dealer would be January 20th. Still no word, however. Still patiently anticipating fulfillment!

FWIW. The Kubota facebook pages seem to average about 3-4 months delivery time for most people.

Well, I am in the process of possibly replacing two trucks with one. It would have to be special ordered, and will take 9 months!! I asked can I be in the delivery room? I guess if my wifes tubes weren't tied, we could have some fun and see which arrives first.

I'm just adding to the info in order to help others gauge their pending orders. On Sept. 9, 21 I ordered a M5-111 with 24 speed tranny, with cab and loader. The projected date was at the first of the year. It's Feb 16 with no ETA or planned build date. Kubota isn't real responsive to dealer inquiries. I'm sure they're getting tons of them. I hope it's soon. Spring time is near and lots of tractor work to do! I have a real nice M7040 but's it a little low on power for some of the stuff I need to get done.

They had other M5's come in and they had been on order for 5 months, but they are still having a hard time with getting hydraulic parts, hoses, tubing, and loaders.

I got a call today, the LA805 finally arrived. It is at their main location, so they need to pick it up when the weather clears, it is freezing rain today, snow tomorrow, so might be Thursday when they get it, and might have it all ready by Friday, Monday at latest.

I started the order process in September, and finalized the order in October for the current tractor. The tractor took 2 months, arrived in December, the loader took 6 months. The remotes took 2 months, the 3rd function/QA remote kit is still pending, no date on when it can arrived, could be another month or two.

Ok, at least you're inching closer. I'm still waiting for word on my L2501 that I ordered the first week in August 2021. The loader has arrived, the backhoe has not. Good luck reaching rapid, complete fruition.

I say go ahead and try…miracles happen. Have the race. I’ve not found a reason not to take a bird in hand😉

Felt vicarious commiseration reading this thread while waiting for the L4701 I ordered the first week of August. It’s finally scheduled for delivery Saturday, sans backhoe and snow pusher. No word on when the hoe will be in.

Luckily I’ve had my trusty B2301 to move snow.

Drive around some red light districts with it and see if anything pops up.

As the supply chain has grounded to a halt-skip-jump-halt mode, I get it - it's frustrating. The alternatives are bleak though, would you rather take ownership of a beast that was rigged just to get it off of the assembly line? You might be waiting on one chip, or a wire harness, or a shunt, or a sensor, or even a qualified tech to get you to last mile white glove delivery. It absolutely sucks. When the global supply chain went to just-in time delivery, it depended on algorithms to control supply ordering of every single SKU on the planet to keep costs low, overhead at a minimum, based on demand, and share holders happy in the millions of stocks that made up the chain. This reset will take time. Have some patience, and don't take it out on your dealer, believe me, they are probably just as frustrated as you and trying eke out a living without laying anyone off... lest they tell you to somewhere else and get the same exact story; regardless of brand. Not trying to bust your chops, and this is not a red or blue matter, its just a global reality. for now. Hopefully we are not headed into another global miltary conflict, as that's just going to make it a lot worse.
Just my humble thoughts, but what do I know, I'm just a shitkicker in TX.

Was called by my dealer and sounds like my mx5400 tractor is shipping. I ordered mid December. The dealers estimate of 3-4 months was spot on.

Took just shy of 6 months for my 4701 (end of Sept to mid March). About a week and a half of that was waiting for replacement wheels as it shipped with R1s instead of R4s.

Totally worth the wait though :)

I finally got mine about a month ago, already made the first payment. Added lights and mirrors, and now working on making an equal angle hitch for the 1209 to work with it. Picked up one of the last available SAYA 505 no till drills in the country this past weekend, and fitted it to the tractor. Looks good on it too.

Still waiting on the 3rd function/QA remote kit for it, no idea when that will come in.

The dealership where I bought my L3901 in 2015 had over 50 tractors of different sizes at the time. I went by last week and they had 2 tractors on their lot.

Well, not mounted on it, but next to it after I got it off the trailer. It was still banded from the factory so made hauling it home easy.

9plus months later and my LX3310 is going to be delivered today (Hope it is not an April fools day joke). It is without the rear remotes and 3rd function. Those are still on back order and the dealer will come get the tractor when they come in. Upset about that as I can't do all I need to do with this tractor but at least I finally can get started on some of the projects I have in line for it.

I got an update this week. Now they are saying December 2021. At least we are making progress.

Will report back with any other updates

Well after a few hours on the seat you will have a smile on your face and your stress level from this will be in the rear mirror! Good luck with your new tractor.
