Oh my, sure glad (now of course, 20/20 hindsight and all) that I got my tractor and most of the attachments in late 2017. Tractor, backhoe, FEL and bucket, pallet forks, front snow blower. Was delivered just over a week after ordering it all!
Just for what it's worth. Mine was held up in Vancouver shipping ports . Blockades were slowing unloading of vessels and loading of train cars. People upset with government decisions on pipeline I believe??I'm more upset with my Kubota salesman. I ordered my tractor 2 months ago, after diligently talking with two different dealers. My slightly closer dealer told me right up front that he didn't think he'd have the tractor I wanted until July, with no promises it would even be then, but the other dealer said that he had ordered 3 of the very tractor I was looking at 3 months earlier, and that they were "on the way", just stuck in some shipping port because dock workers were down due to the pandemic. So I went with that guy of course, being told I'd have my tractor "within the month". Well, here we are, and he's already said it looks like late april, or may, or maybe into June. What happened to them being on the way? I thought they were stuck in a container?
I realize what's going on with the supply chains and inventory, and no one person has control of that, but what gets me is I think he mislead me to get the sale. But at this point I'm so far along that if I go back to the other dealer it will probably be 6 months longer to wait!
Oddly the exact thing is happening to me now. Found a barely used (5 hour) tractor half hour away. Same model I ordered. So I'm interested to know if you had any pushback cancelling the order with Kubota? If I can make the deal on the used tractor I will definitely want to cancel the order, but don't want to get ahead of myself. I've paid nothing, only signed the sales order and filled out some finance paperwork.I had ordered an LX2610 with FEL 3rd function in early February with it coming in the end of March. Had it all setup with the equine discount. March came and went with no tractor and it kept getting pushed. Then on April 10th a used 35 hour LX2610 with FEL 3rd fucntion, self-leveling, swift-tach, Work lights, 60" mmm, Pallet forks, and box blade came up on facebook for the same price I was going to pay for the new one. I called the dealer and asked when my tractor would be in and he said he couldn't give me a date till shipped, which he did know when it would. He made it sound like Kubota was only shipping tractors to fill orders and dealers weren't getting any extra stock.
So I went and bought the used tractor.
No push back. I called the salesman and was completely up front with him. Told him a used tractor came up on market place and asked him when mine would be delivered. He said he couldn't give a date until it shipped and he wasn't sure when it would. He said to just let him know if I didn't need it. After I bought the used tractor I emailed him to cancel the order and never heard from him again.Oddly the exact thing is happening to me now. Found a barely used (5 hour) tractor half hour away.
