I understand the tractor has been updated and is being marketed with some changes to the frame. The newer models have mostly a plastic shell and fenders versus metal. However, the fact that all of the parts still exist as individual order items creating the necessity to assimilate the individual parts into a single order to create a kit does not (in my opinion) justify a 300% increase in the cost of the parts. I would understand a surcharge but 300% is over the top.
I have the local dealer looking around for a kit within the dealer networks. Hopefully, I get lucky. Or maybe a Kubota makes more sense as a package deal.....?
Thanks for the feedback.
