Re: Kubota BX23S or Yanmar SA221
Hello, I have the yanmar sa 424. I have owned it for 2yrs now, i only use it for brush hogging 2acres, five foot brush hog, twice a year. snow removal. 250 foot driveway rear 3 point, 6foot blade. I use the FEL to move dirt, spread gravel and just a really convenient ,,wheelbarrow,, I use it but dont abuse it
I looked at JD, Kubota and Yanmar. All three were on sale, the JD was about 1200 more, the Kubota about 1800, more! All three have good points and bad points! The yanmar dealer was by far the best! i have all three dealers within 25 miles of home, so that wasnt a huge factor for me.
The Jd uses a yanmar engine, so the same there, the Kubota is there own manufacture? I forget about the Kubota,, sorry,, but if i wanted a backhoe on the Jd i had to purchase it already installed, they use a different frame ?
I can add a backhoe any time on the yanmar, and they are really expanding there own implement line, they are branded as being built in Georgia, maybe assembled there? It was the best bang for the buck for me and i have had no problems with mine, i really like it, Good luck, they all seem to be well built quality machines! sorry no experience with the MMM
