It is definitely a grey area. However, the term "subcompact" really didn't exist until Kubota came out with the BX series. Now, of course, there are BX-sized tractors that have more horsepower than a lot of the older Kubota B and even L series.
To me subcompact has more to do with the physical size. If the rear wheels are less than 30", and the tractor weighs under 2000 pounds, I'd call it subcompact.
I love all the picís and I donít mean to rile anyoneís feathers, but where is the line between Compact Utility Tractor and Sub Compact Utility Tractor? Some of these look really small. Is there a line or is it just a gray area that is open to speculation?
There is a VERY clear line between the CUT and SCUT,,,
Spent the day at the farm mowing the south timber with the 790 & 5' Frontier cutter. Stopped for fuel for the tractor on the way home, the farm diesel pump is next to the tire shop so I ordered it a new pair of front shoes for the 790.
