Found this kubota, I believe its a T1400, the man said the engine blew and he put a good engine back on it, and before he got thru he found a different mower that he wanted, and now has lost interest in this one. He wants 150 bucks.

Should I buy it? Are kubota mowers the same quality as their tractors?

I hate that I let a T1400 get away from me. The very best part of the mower, and there are lots of good parts, is the Kubota built 14 hp engine. What new engine is on it now?
Briggs. I didnt realize that kubota put their own engines on them, maybe the briggs repower is the reason he didnt finish? Things not working the same?

Interesting that the parts would come from Onan. I never ran the numbers on the engine to confirm the manufacturer. I wouldn't throw it out because of the Briggs but if there are problems then ask what is going wrong.

A note; mine was a T1400H, if that makes any difference. I don't know if this mower was ever made without the hydrostatic drive. I do know that this hydro was a dream to operate.

Let us know what you decide.:fing32:

I have two Kubota T1460's. One with the 12 1/2 hp Kawasaki engine and the other also has a Kawasaki 14 hp engine, (FC420 ohv). I am rebuilding it now and trying to find a replacement engine and it seems they are like lips on a chicken....hard to find. I can't get Kawasaki to even respond to an e-mail.
