There are a lot of them in this area. The dealership here is great. We don't own one, but we have heard they are good tractors. It's Heartland Kabota, Sheridan Wy if you would like to call and talk to someone. It's a family owned business and they have a lot of machinery on their lot.
I worked for an outfit shredding juniper trees a few winters back. I worked on and operated one of a fleet of Kabota tracked skid steers. Tough machines and they were put through the ringer. The folks that ran the shredding operation were new to the business and not mechanically inclined at all. I couldn’t get over the abuse the machines took from the mon-Thur when I wasn’t there. I worked fri-sun and spent a lot of time fixing things they screwed up. One guy ran his an entire week without a diesel cap on the tank. Finally plugged off and we dropped the tank and cleaned it out, changed filters and went back to work. My experience is limited to just the tracked skid steers but I was impressed. Good luck
I see a lot of Kubotas but have never owned one. Most of the people I talk to that are running them chose them because of price and seem happy with them.
Orange, red, green, blue - I'm not sure there's a lot of difference anymore as long as you're not buying the economy models within a brand. Find a dealer around you that everybody recommends, meet him to be sure you like him and his parts/service department, then buy what he sells.
