  • Please don't hate me
  • I still own 5 8n's so I guess I'm still safe with you guys !

    Say hello to my new/used 1996 Kubota B1750 4X4 3 cylinder Diesel tractor with 1400 hours on her. I've been looking for a small utility tractor with a loader for a few years now, Damn things ain't cheap. This one is a little smaller than I wanted but will do what I need done.
    Did I do good ???

  • No worries, I have an open station B3030 I bought new in 05 and a 2012 B3000 cab I use for snow removal. Love them both to bits.

  • Another orange interloper.
    Crossbreeding with 8N might produce a Yanmar.
    You don't need that.
    Keep them separated.

  • You did fine if you did not spend too much. You can expect at least another 1K hours with no engine problems.

    I have been using that tire combination on a B7200DT for 20+ years with no problems.

  • It cost me a tad under 5k and has been maintained, It's in great shape except the weak power steering.

  • Follow on model to my B7200. I paid just about the same in 2000 for a 350 hour machine and new 48" finish mower. Built like tanks but a little undersize. You can push them well beyond the stated specifications. I just added a new L3901 to my harem and the added power and size is a major improvement. I waited way too long.

  • I have 5 Kubotas, including a B1750HSDT with Bi-Speed turn. I bought the B1750 new in 1993 and it has been the best machine that I have ever purchased.

    I would check out the tires on yours as front turfs do not match with rear R1s or R4s.

    Still love my 52 8N with Sherman combination and 1,100 original hours that serves as my quad.

  • That's a twin to mine !!
    The rear tires and wheels are brand new as of last year, I plan on leaving it in 2WD most of the time but will research the tires in the mean time.
    Everything works as it should except I have no or very little power steering, That will have to be addressed for sure.

    (Oh, Dell would be proud, I bought all 3 manuals LOL)

  • You could always paint it Ford colors. LOL You did good.
    I've thought many times of something like that but I'm down to 3 acres of yard, a Gravely zero turn to mow...and still um (?) Ford tractors in the barn.
    BTW, my Texas niece and her 3 sons were here last week and I let the 16 year old drive my (was my father's) '51 8N. His grin was so big I could not see his face...almost.
    The younger 2 boys will have to wait a few years. They are 4 and 5.
