Fellas, I need some advice from those of you who have or have been around the small kubota diesel engines. Im looking at picking up a G6200 Diesel lawn tractor. It has the 16 hp 3 cyl liquid cooled diesel. I am looking at two of em. The one has 1500 hrs and the other has 930. The 1500 job they are asking $1500. The 930 hour job they are asking $2200. My question is

A) How long do these little bastards run. I've heard stories of 5000 hours and more. Do these have a lot of life left if main't was good?

B) Do any of you have/ had them and how did you like them?

C) Do those prices seem reasonable for that age tractor?

Thanks!:drink

I used to run a fleet of diesel kubotas. We had 4 diesel zero turn mowers, 1 diesel lawn mower, 2 diesel RTVs, and 2 diesel Ag tractors. All of them ran great and had very few problems. Half of them have over 1,000 hours now and still going strong. Those prices don't seem too bad. Keep up with the maintenance and they'll have plenty of life left.

My parents have a Steiner lawn tractor with a 3 cylinder 25 horse Kubota diesel in it. Pretty sure it has 2500 or so hours on it that thing is bulletproof. Runs like new and sounds good. For 16 g's it had better be good.

I wouldn't be afraid to spend my money on orange. We've had three small Kubota tractors over the last twenty years. Never an issue. So I bought some more. 4-5000 hrs easy just keep it serviced.

They run forever. We have some at work in small tractors that have over 10,000 hours on them. They run 10+ hours a day 7 days a week.

Kubotas are great! Got a medium size front loader tractor and we use for everything like cutting grass, brush hogging, snow clearing, hauling etc. Runs great and has yet to let us down. Plus I love smelling diesel from the stack lol im wierd.
