After looking at a used Kubota I stopped by and looked at a Cub/Yanmar 450 with front loader. $26100 w fel and 0% financing for 60 mos,or take$4300 off for cash/other financing. After reading another thread is Yanmar and Cub parting ways? Is this a good deal? It's 45 hp 4wd.
the Kubota was 50hp fel 4wd for $15000 and 1024 hrs. No leaks, started easily in cold weather. everything worked except for parking brake. It was a 2000 M5400.

The transition from CC/Y to just Y is confusing, for instance, I'd like to get a shop manual for mine but so far there doesn't seem to be one? Is that because Cub decided not to produce one considering the situation or is the ball back in Yanmar's court? Good luck trying to get a straight answer on that. I have an EX3200 I bought last year from Smith's in Tennessee. There are times when I wish I had gone bigger but I guess that is always going to happen. It's a great machine and has been really a life saver here in Connecticut where there were two major storms last year that devestated my "landscape". Personally I like the yellow and black more than the yanmar red if that means anything. Fortunately the few things I've wanted have been available through my local Cub dealer or from Smith's.
