This is a follow-up on a question I asked. I wanted opinions on the best new tractors with regard to frequency of repair and availability of parts. Responses generally favored John Deere.
I was talking to a friend who is a tractor mechanic and he agreed that Deere is excellent in the large tractor market but not as much in the mid-range. I am looking for a tractor in the 40-50 hp range. He favors Kubota, Yanmar and Kioti. Any thoughts?

Around here the Kubota up to 75 hp has the best support. I still prefer New Holland but our dealer went broke. I haven't dealt with the new dealer yet. I dont like the thin front tires Kubota uses. Seems to make it a rougher ride on the road.

I would go with Kubota. A good rugged machine and the dealer will make house calls

Kubota - Solid unit made in Japan. At least you know this up front.

A lot of the Deere, Case, NH and others are made in Japan, China and India. The ones made in Japan and India seem to be good units. The ones made in China not so much.

So it all depends on how much time you want it in the shop.

Kubota also has excellent dealer support.

Avoid the Mahindra units. If you get one made in India they are pretty good ones made in China are junk. Parts can be a bugger to get too no matter where made.

I am saving my nickels and dimes and will by a Kubota after using my friends 2014 L3200 (32 HP) a lot lately.

My 2 cents

This poster knows not of what he speaks. Mahindra's are made in Korea and Japan (and India) these days. Never heard of a Chinese Mahindra... maybe they make them for the Chinese market, but I doubt it. Parts for the newer ones at least are not hard to get now. Mahindra has several parts depots around the country, my dealer gets them from the Texas HQ. Even John Deere is shaky on getting parts for their older foreign sourced tractors.
