Anybody use a Kubota?


I'm buying a lawnmower within the next couple of weeks and the Kubota T2380 is in my top three. I looking for a few opinions.

By the way, here are my three choices (in no particular order)

John Deere X320
Kubota T2380
Cub Cadet GT2550

As you can see, I'm looking for something a little more heavy duty than your big box mower.

Thanks...

I've got a BX 24. Kubota makes a reliable and well built machine. One of my peeves is that the hydrostat pedal and the brake pedal are on the same side.

Whatever mower you decide on make sure it has an engine oil pump and does not rely on gravity (especially if you have hills).

IMO stay away from the cub's. IMO they haven't been good since they were owned by IH. I'd go with the JD or Kuboto. I've personally never seen the Kuboto in action, but the JD I've seen good things from.

Kubota makes diesel models (the GR series) but the T2380 is gas.

I believe MTD just owns Cub, Troy-Bilt, Yard-Man, and Yardmachines.

Jeep is correct on ownership plus they do house brands- Craftsman etc. Either the JB or Kubota. Neither of these are cheap. I'd go to user web sites head to the forum and ask. they'll tell you.
