Kubota parts availability?

Postby True Grit Farms » Thu Apr 05, 2018 7:27 am

It's only been 15 days since I broke my door glass out of my tractor. And my patience is running thin with Kubota. I called a couple of of other dealers just to make sure I wasn't getting lied to and they said the glass was on backorder also. It's only a 2014 model and it's not even hay season yet. My 9960 Kubota has been absolutely trouble free for 1500 hours, but if getting cosmetic parts is this tough now it's going to impossible in 20 years.
I'm beginning to wish I'd of sold out to TennesseeTuxedo.

CB, I have Kubota insurance that covers parts and labor, they just need the dang part. We're busy through the weekend so it's not a big deal. I put Messick's number in my phone thanks.

Grit I get most of my New Holland parts from them now . I found them when I was looking for Krone parts one time.

I use messicks also. Its a shame that a local parts house has to order half of what need so I just cut out the middle man and order things myself. I can get it quicker and cheaper. I don't mind paying for convenience but I'll be dam if I will pay more for something and have to wait for it.

I broke the side glass out of mine last year, it took two weeks to get it, then another 10 days to get it fixed. I tried to get them to order the glass, and then bring it to them when it arrived. They told me since it was under warranty that they wouldn't order the parts till I brought it to them, I was without my tractor for almost a month.

No loaner program I'm guessing.

The door handle part on the outside that mounts flush with the window broke on my M6800 out of the blue a couple days ago. It was lose just shaking in the door glass. It was all plastic about 1/2 lb. worth. THe local dealer had it and $66 dollars latter I am back in business. I broke the glass on my M9000 last year (dealer had it in stock) and if I remember correctly it was about $350 total to fix as I used the rubber seal over and repaired myself. Pretty good little job to fix. Maybe mine being older more parts available.

My best Kubota story is the washer fluid cap.

1. It is unique and it seems no other cap can replace it.
2. It is made out of a horrible, cheap plastic that becomes brittle months after being put into service.
3. It is not available as a replacement part. You have to buy the $180 washer fluid reservoir from Kubota to get one.

That’s when my tight a$$ would make one out of a cork or cellophane wrap and rubber band if I couldn’t find a whole new reservoir out of a junk vehicle.

I guess I should do a how too on using a 1 gallon gas jug to make a new washer fluid reservoir .
