    Who has a line of a Kubota dealer they like somewhere around MA. I'm willing to work in NY, Southern VT/NH or CT.


    Looking at either a tractor or CTL. For the power I want, CTL isn't really a ton different than a tractor would run me, but the upkeep can be more...and the implements seem to be more across the board as well. Need to talk to a dealer and get some more information and learn more about leasing. With a lease set up we can deduct all payments when tax time comes, then if bought after lease is up, can write off all the depreciation at that point. Makes it attractive, especially when we can't afford to buy one straight up anyways! :rolleyes:


    Main uses will be snowblowing (sick of plowing up piles in our parking lots and not having space towards end of winter for events) some brush cutting and trail creation/maintenance.

    I know the tractor is the more economical option in the long run, but I've used some SS in the past and really enjoy running them. The new SVL 65-2 would be a good size for what I am looking to do I think. At this point I've read so much back and forth on every forum and online article I can find, I just need to talk to a dealer and get some real numbers and facts.

    I know the folks at Chappell Tractor a little bit. They are highly involved in the snowmobile clubs here in NH. I think they are one of the biggest outfits in NH and they are stand up guys in the club. Although I have never bought a tractor from them I would not hesitate to do so.

    I will second Bacon's

    Look at Mahindra... Even the TYMs seem to be pretty good machines.
    But, after doing all my digging, poking, and using a buddy's Kubota...
    The Mahindra was at the top of my list....

    Had a good chat with the wife about our camper on the way home from VT last night. If you remember, I found some leaking water in the front wall last year and took steps to seal it and prevent further damage. What I found while I was sealing it is horrible though, tons of rotten wood, sections where a fastener won't hold, just a general mess. So we evaluated our options; do nothing and hope it doesn't get any worse (fat chance), sell it as-is (probably take a big hit and end up owing more that I get from selling), or take off the siding rebuild the wall and carry on. We decided to rebuild the front wall. From what I've seen online, it's not that complicated (sure there are gotchas, and always hidden stuff, but that's how I found the rot in the first place), but I was curious, have any of you done this before? Would you do it again in this situation?

    I actually helped a friend rebuild his front wall of his camper last year. Just did it one piece at a time, it wasnt that bad. Once it was all done youd never even know we took it apart.

    Just got my 30k service done this morning...got a long way to catch up!

    I like Mahindra, I like their prices a lot too. But I've been reading a lot of bad stuff on the forums which has sort of scared me off. We do have a dealer close by which would make the repairs easy...and TBH most my work isn't "time sensitive" and has some wiggle room usually. They have a great warranty on them...

    Cat and Kubota don't have dealers very close, and I don't like John Deeres stance on fixing your own equipment so I can't get myself to buy one no matter how nice they are.

    TYM's I've heard good stuff, AVS maybe too? I think Yanmar just bought them out a week or two ago..had good luck with a yanmar excavator I used for a month a few years ago. I'm not opposed to some of these "smaller" (in USA at least) companies, just Mahindra seems to have a few kinks they need to work out. Has your buddy had any issues with his?

    DUI? Rain? Texting? Any word on how
