Here's what I bought since Kubota raised their prices. It has zero hydro whine and no regens. LOL
Wow! That's a beauty! (y)

I still like new tractors for loader work. Some of the old loaders and hydraulics are pretty primitive.

But now that prices went crazy I'll keep my B2620 for mower, loader and backhoe work and use the Ford for heavy ground engagement work.

i love having an HST and joystick for loader work. using the old case with a clutch and twin stick loader is a pain in the butt. In the field though i love the old gear drive. pick a gear bring the RPM up then sit back and steer.

I always wondered how an old tractor like that Ford would compare to something like a new 40 horse L series with 4WD in ground engagement work? The Ford is only 2WD but it is heavier.

I like old tractors, but you can't beat modern hydraulic controls over the old ones.

I still want a new M7060 cab but not after the price increase they hit me with mid deal.

Nice machine. Diesel or gas?
Thanks. It's a diesel.

It made me think about what would have been if that deal with Kubota building tractors for Ford would have went through. I forget what year that was, but it was when Kubota first wanted to get in to North America, they were in talks with Ford as Ford had the dealer network they needed and Ford wanted a line of small tractors.
