Some common problems with Kubota tractors include running very roughly, cables coming apart in the track, acting as though it has run out of fuel and leakage from the hoses, according to ConsumerAffairs.com. Other problems include steering lockups, loss of speed, loader drifting, pitch hydraulic noise and premature part failure.
According to customer reviews, some Kubota tractors have mechanical issues. They tend to run roughly and not even changing the filters or fuel pumps seems to offer a permanent solution. The tractor works well for a few hours and starts running roughly again.
Other reviews state that Kubota tractors have poor wiring. Worn-out cables are visible, and they easily get damaged within the first couple of hours. They are also risky to work with since tires often part ways with the rims. Other consumers complain that the tractors have to go through coolant every day. The fact that filters fill up before regeneration begins leads to poor fuel consumption.
Consumers complain of the pitch hydraulic noise, since it is irritating to their ears and could possibly cause major damage to the ears. In general, they find Kubota tractors as the worst in the market. The dealers and manufacturers are also not keen to cater to the needs of their clients.
