I have been looking for a 85-100 HP MFWD Cab loader tractor. My JD 6400 is now over at the daughter' place. I found a low hour JD 6410 MFWD open station, the boys are keeping it at the farm. Well I have been looking at JD 7410s, JD 6715s, JD 6410s too. I just have not found anything that really jumped out at me.

I have a JD 4450 MFWD that I bought to resale. It is pretty darn clean tractor. I have a fellow that is wanting to trade me his Kubota M100GX MFWD and loader. I would need to kick in some boot but his tractor is a 2014 with only 800 hours on it. It drives real nice and the controls seem pretty good.

Is this going to be about the same as the JD 7210 or JD 6430s???? I see many different models of Kubota tractors So it is confusing to me what is what as far as levels of tractors.

So do any of you fellows own a Kubota M100GX??? I am wanting to mow pastures, hay tractor, bale moving/loading tractor. The bales will be in the 1500-1600 LBS weight class. Will this be enough tractor to handle this type of work.

Looked at several mxís before the m6 141 got purchased. They seem like a nice tractor. Iíve never ran one but I have ran practically every other piece of kubota on the market (utillity tractors, skid steers, excavators, tlb) and I own an rtv x (wife seems to think she owns it hahaha) but I have been very happy with everything I have operated. They used to be kinda bare bones but are really coming along now and they are tremendously cheaper than the newer 6000 r series Deereís. We have been painting the neighborhood orange. My only complaint is they donít make a 250+ horse to plant with and they use flange axles instead of bar but thatís practically everything below 150hp any more

JD That tractor replaced an earlier tractor but is considered a premium tractor, more features ect. I sold a few of them most times folks went on and bought the 125 because it was not that much higher. I did not figure the money but as far as the tractor there are no factory problems as so. We air problems back then on the 8200 and 9000 series M but that is not the case with that tractor. Think you would like it. KUBOTA has JD beat on the front axel, will turn shorter and take power at any angel with no problems. Also that loader is balanced to the tractor.

How big of mower to mow pastures? How big of baler? I seem to recall that you have a 5x6 round baler, and that you live in some fairly hilly country? I think it might struggle baling. For the loader and bale work, it would likely be fine. A 7210 would be a way better tractor for what you list.

Farmer boy: I have a MX10 semi mounted rotary cutter and I was talking about square baling. Then also pulling a hay rake too. You want at least 125 HP on a round baler here with the Hills.

It sure seems like a lot of them for sale have low hours....and not many have high hours....has anyone seen one of these larger tractors with over 6 or 7000 hours? My brother has a 6400 Deere that he bought new and is approaching 20,000 hours and hasn't touched the inside of the engine yet...Uncle has a 4240 with about the same and no engine problems. Will a Kubota last like that?

I have had 'Botas since 1986. The thing that to me sets them apart is the way they hold value, which of course you can't see until ten years down the road. I am sure that you have access to green paint.

I bought a M100GX and a M135 GX both new in 2014. The M100GX work fine and did everything I asked of it, but it wasnít as much tractor as the bigger M135GX . All the controls were the same and the cab was the same too. The smaller tractor had a smaller loader and smaller tires all a round. As I said it worked fine for feeding round bales, and silage, but didnít interchange with the bigger tractor, so I turned it in on a new M6 141 last spring. These two interchange well. I know this doesnít answer your question, but I did have one and thatís why I traded it. The M100GX will be a nice yard tractor for your Daughterís operation, and those new cabs are built for fellas in the six foot and taller . The doors open wide , windows are large , and generally a comfortable cab. I didnít find the regen on the emission control was really a big issue. So long as the engine is revs are around 1600 it will reg while you are using the tractor. I have been out ploughing or baling hay when it needed to regenerate, and I never stopped working, nor did I notice any loss of power. Not a lot more I can tell you other than , make sure the bolts that hold the loader subframe on to the tractor are tight. The loafers on both my tractors both had the bolts come losses and back out. So I turned one out, and it was greased before it was put on! So I called the dealer, and asked , What the heck!! They told me that they greased the bolts when they put them on , so if they ever had to remove a loader in the future, it would come apart easy. I told them I would rather have red lock tight on the bolts. So they told me bring the tractor in , and they would remove the bolts, clean the threads, and reinstall with red lock tight, at no charge to me, so I did. No problem since. Hope Ďthis helps. Bruce

Why does the guy want to trade the Kubota? I know a man with a late model M100GX and he bought it for the hay field, what I know is he uses it to cut and bale with but as far as loader work and stop start work it regenerates very often, to the point of aggravation. He sent it back to the dealer at least twice with no change, he has never been able to get any straight story on whether it has a glitch in The computer or an intentional design factor. I know he has that cab tractor sitting under the shed all winter while he loads customers hay with an open station 806.

Older friend of mine had a Kubota he used lightly within 2500 hrs of use he had it to the dealer twice for hydraulic repairs to the tune of 1000$+ each time.I know for sure because I hauled it both ways both times and saw the bill.Also the loader wouldn't begin to pick up as much weight as my 40+ year old AC 185.

LAA He started farming more ground the last few years and quit livestock. He needs a tillage tractor rather than a yard tractor now. I am not sure I am going to do anything. I do not like that it has a participant filter and other emissions crap on it. So I will more than likely NOT do the trade. HE can just buy mine out right and I will find a non emission tractor to buy. That is why I wanted to here from guys that have them. It also is a lighter tractor than what I am used too as well.

But the truth is , you are only listing to a guy that knows a guy that owns the tractor, and tells you a story about what he thinks he sees. Only way you ever really know what any tractor , car or truck is like, is have one , or drive one your self. Rather than just read what some one writes that trash talks. I put nearly 1400 hours on my M100GX in little over a year, it fed the cows everyday, 7 days a week, no problems. On a real full time dairy farm. This is a true first hand account, not some BS story from a fella that never owned a Kubota tractor. Bruce

We had an M125x on lease and there were continual issues that "no one in kubota has seen before and possibly we were abusing the tractor?", we traded it in on an M126x,different set of continual issues but basically the same spiel. Traded it in on a T6 165 NewHolland. Went from a 5 cyl to a 4 now we have a 6 cyl and a much heavier tractor than the M6 they tried to sell us for shockingly less extra money than the kubota was. It has def tier 4 which hasn't caused any issues in 4 years to date,starts just as good in the cold as the kubota and the transmission is ready to go in extreme cold vs the kubota alarming out because the transmission wanted to warm up. We've had nothing but good experiences with the NewHolland so far.

Hi JD,if you have a look on tractordata.com
and look up the model you'll find the shipping weight than you can compare apples to apples a little easier.
