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.

Yanmar was building the tractors for Cub and putting a sticker on them for Cub/Yanmar. Last year Yanmar decided they did not want to continue the relationship and they were going to sell the same exact tractor with just the yanmar name on it. Unfortunately the dealers are caught in the middle because they already have tractors in the field and if they wanted to get parts for them they had to sign with Yanmar. The tractors are solid, my brother has a SX3100, great machine. The LX450 is pretty much the big brother with the power-reverser, twelve speed tranny, step through platform and all the other bells and whistles. I work at the dealer that my brother bought his from, the reason he went with the Cub Yanmar over a John Deere Yanmar was the price.

Good luck with your choice.
