Re: kubota delivery

Of course it doesn't survive. Minutes later a black hole forms and sucks it in, along with the driver, and then the black hole disappears.

Re: kubota delivery

Crappy deal for all involved.

New owner making the video seemed to be a pretty understanding guy. Many people witnessing that debacle would told the delivery guy to put it back on the trailer and leave.

Delivery driver endured the morning from he!!.

And Messicks? Worst PR video imaginable.

Didn’t watch right to the end, 20 min is a long time, but surly there is damage to the deck, blades and or the mountings. I would be expecting a either a new machine delivered or a major discount on the tractor and any damaged parts replaced at no charge.

Re: kubota delivery

First off, the ramps on that trailer slide side to side to line up with the wheels of whatever you are driving onto or off of it. If the ramps had been setup properly to begin with the driver wouldn't have had to adjust the position of the tractor on the trailer in order to line it up before driving it off. It also looks like the ramps weren't even set at the proper width.

The damage should be covered by the dealer's business insurance, not the customer's Kubota insurance.

Re: kubota delivery

I've seen so many "errors" on YouTube videos that it's possible the dealer insurance paid for the damage and replaced the deck.We, of course, know only what we've been told but I'd have politely refused that unit and then gone over the replacement with a _very_ jaundiced eye. Hey sheet happens, I know that but ...

Re: kubota delivery

Nope. Document the serial number. Call the dealer and tell them to deliver another after explaining what just happened. Wish the delivery guy luck as he puts it back on the trailer.

I know the trailer was on a slope and it was raining. Did he really have to raise the loader/forks and backhoe so high? That certainly screwed up the tractors center of gravity.

Re: kubota delivery

Yep, I'd have gotten a new one delivered by someone without their children being there and would have had them back into the driveway to reduce the angle!!

Re: kubota delivery

Speaking from experience of actually loading hauling and unloading if possible you never load or unload uphill. I think that his biggest mistake probably due to lack of experience. If he was facing down hill and as some mentioned about being in the driveway to lessen the angle that may have made the difference. I do know for a fact too moving stuff when its raining is scary. You can just slide off as if it were ice.

Re: kubota delivery

Watching just the unloading part a few times I can clearly see his ramps were too far apart. What a chump! That's probably the whole issue!

It was also rainy, which could have made the trailer deck and ramps a little slick.


Overkill.

Re: kubota delivery

JMO, but this wasn't about rain, kids or anything else.....the delivery guy did a dangerously poor job. Line up the ramps dead nuts, and keep attachments as low as possible. As for my approach as the purchaser, I would have just said, "well at least it should be easier to load, because it's not staying here."

.....just call me Ellis

Folks say I'm lazy, drunk and stupid. Well, I got news for them......they're only 2/3 right.

He has a followup video stating the machine is being returned.
