Just wondering what the opinions are on a Kubota M6060 vs a John Deere 5075e. I realize the kubota is 65 hp and the JD is 75 which doesn't really matter to me I just mainly wanna know which one has had less problems and is built better. The two I'm looking at are both lease tractors from the peanut mills with the JD having 130hrs and the kubota having a little over 200hrs. I have not taken the time to go drive either one yet but from just sitting in both I like the way the drivers area is set up on the kubota better than the JD but on the other hand I can get the JD for about $2500 less than the kubota so im kinda torn between the two. I've been told by some that anything 100 hp or less kubota is the best made and to stay away from JD unless its 100hp or more and then JD is the way to go. Just wanting to see what people have to say about them that have ran them and yes they will be having loaders installed either way I decide to go.

You’re more pto and engine Hp with the Deere. Weight probly be close to same if both are cab plus mfwd. I owned a kubota m6040. It was ok. But anything green is home for me. More operator friendly. But do yourself a favor and look at an M series Deere in that same size.

I have a MX5200 Kubota. I know it’s not the same model but we love ours. It’s STOUT. JD makes awesome tractors in that size as well. Which one has GOOD service centers close. That would be my deciding factor. JMO

You need to make sure the 5075E isn’t poorly built. I’ve seen some that don’t even have the left sided collar shifter for forward and reverse. You have to clutch and go to and from reverse and the gear you were in. I would be annoyed by that.

The older Kubotas like the 6040 had an under built radiator and are prone to easily overheat. We’ve had 2 that do this. Not sure if they changed that.

The JD E's are not what a JD is known for. They're cheap. If you were comparing a Kubota to a M or R, then the Deere would win hands down.

I can speak in detail about this as I just bought the very tractor you are considering. I was comparing the Kubota M7060 to the JD 5075E. I bought brand new so that is the reason I went with the JD over Kubota. Below is what made me go with the Deere.

72 months 0% JD
72 months .99 Kubota

Even though the Kubota dealership bent over backwards JD still beat their price by $300+ for 75 hp verses 70hp due the interest on the 72 month terms. My JD quote included a FEL mounted hay spear that was $750. The Kubota quote did not have the hay spear included so that put them $1100 behind JD.

JD 2 has a year bumper to bump warranty and 5 year power train with no hours restrictions.
Kubota 2 year bumper to bumper and 3 year or 3000 hours power train warranty.

Even though I wanted the Kubota I could not pay $1100 more for smaller tractor and 2 years less warranty.

Also the JD is a heavier tractor of the two.

I spent two weeks researching these tractors and spoke with 4 JD owners. Not a one of them had any issues or complaints about the 5065E or the 5075E. On the other hand I spoke with a buddy of mine that has two club members with the M7060 and they both have been in the shop.

Overall I think both are equal tractors and either one is subject to have issues. The reason behind I did not want to give up 2 years of warranty JD was offering. If I had a local Mahindra dealer I would have bought a Mahindra. Better price, heavier tractor no regeneration emissions crap and way cheaper than Deere or Kubota. They also come standard with a lot of nice features that are optional on the Deere and Kubota.

FYI the JD 0% financing is a bit of a gimmick. If you pay cash they knock off like $2,000. At least when I got quotes.

Squeaky has obviously been tractor shopping. Listen to what he's saying. I've said it in these tractor threads before, but Deere will not be beat on price. They can mark down the E series much more than Kubota can mark down m6060 or 7060.

I've used both pretty extensively. The Deere is tougher built, less exposed hoses, less exposed hydraulic cylinders. Seriously the amount of exposed hydraulic hoses on the Kubota makes me nervous to even take it up to hunting camp. I have zero fears of tearing anything up under the tractor on the 5e series. Everything is basically encased in cast iron save for the FEL hoses.

The Kubota is more operator friendly. Controls set up better, more ergonomic. Seat is more comfortable and the common rail direct injection makes a noticeable difference in power to me. And Kubota uses a 4 cylinder engine, Deere uses 3 cylinders, so the Kubota is putting out more displacement. The turning radius is also a lot better than Deere.

Gun to my head I'd choose the 5e series for hunting camp work, Kubota m series for pure farming. If your hunting camp entails only field work then they're both pretty much equal.

It's in another stratosphere price wise compared to the 5e series or Kubota m series. Great tractors, though.

The one I'm looking at does have the power reverser on the steering column which was a requirement for me. Does all JD loaders have the special JD hook up or can you get a loader from them with the quick attach?

Another thing I'm a little concerned about is I recently bought a Browns 6.5ft disc harrow and am not sure if with a tractor this size if it is wide enough to cover my tracks with the gangs turned as aggressive as they will go.

Most of the new JD's are coming with the Euro Global hookup - which I think is becoming the standard for tractors - but pretty sure you can order whatever type of hookup you want.

I've had both and my 5075e with a loader is the most versatile tractor I've owend. The kubota had a smaller fuel tank and drank fuel if you ran at higher rpms compared to the deere. Also it didn't have the ass the deere does either when it comes to running a tree cutter or a heavy brown disc. I am a big deere fan as I own 3 JD tractors and there's a reason for that they are the best and my 5075e is the most used and borrowed tractor I have. Its not a top end bells and whistles tactor like the m sieries but its perfect for plots and work. Mine is a 2009 I bought new and has been a little work horse that I can't do with out. Also resale is a blow out with the deere if you ever wanted to upgrade down the road. Call one of the sun south dealers in South alabama and ask about a peanut rental 5075e you'll save some money buying a new tractor with a few hours on it through the program if they still do it.

And don't forget to carry a whole lot of extra money. smile

But you can get a real 75 hp tractor with the M. Since you are comparing 2 tractors from a lease program, you are gonna save a lot compared to a new one and will probably be better off. I bought a 5075e in 2012, and nearly all the problems I've had with it were due to the dealer installation of an extra hyd line. Once those were solved, it's been a very solid tractor. Yours would have more of the EPA junk, but the Kubota will have it too, and all those initial problems that many seem to have will already be solved while on lease.

I have no experience with that size Kubota, so I can't make a comparison. But I can say that I think the JD is a solid tractor. The 5000e series doesn't have the bells and whistles of higher models, but I look at it as fewer things to tear up.

But to your point pcp inventory on 100hp and less tractors is out there today. A man can be patient and find upper series like the M right just gotta look

I recently did a survey and 9 out of 10 big bucks prefer plots planted by a green tractor. The other buck voted for Hilary, was wearing a rainbow t-shirt, watches CNN daily, wants to be put in a big pen in Ghina🇨🇳 and ain't a fan of gun rights. He liked the orange tractor.

I’m jumping the fence on this one. I’m buying the KUBOTA M4. It’s an awesome tractor. Everyone I know who has a new johndeere is not happy. My opinion anything older than 2014 stick with johndeere but new stuff I’m happier with KUBOTA

It is definently a hard decision and can probably be debated on forever just like Ford vs Chevrolet but in the end it comes down to what each person likes. For me I'm leaning more towards the Kubota just because I currently have a 2016 kubota MX4800 and am probably gonna be trading it in if I cant sell it. As far as the quality of kubota I'm happy with it since I've not had a minutes trouble out of it but have never owned a John Deere. I do know that my wife's uncle had a kubota M6800 and I was amazed with some of the things I saw him do with a root rake hooked to the front of that tractor and honestly would have never tried some of the things I saw him do with it but he never had a minutes trouble out of it other than a busted steel hydraulic line right after he bought it but he called his dealer and they came out the next day and replaced it free of charge. In the end I really need to go drive and get some measurements from both because I really do not wanna get rid of my Browns disc that is basically new and from the looks the JD would be too wide for it and wouldn't cover my tracks but the M6060 I looked at didnt seem to be as wide due to the rear tires being a different style than the JD which were not as big or aggressive but were still the R1 type tire.

You know that 5075 has reversible hubs right? The dealer can narrow it up to 30” rows for you. I wouldn’t want that narrow kubota. It’s gonna beat you to death. Must kubotas do not come with air ride seats. You better ask for em in either one you get

10-4 thanks for letting me know. Another question I have is about getting a quick hitch for whatever I end up buying. From what I've seen they seem to be pretty nice and make life a whole lot easier when swapping implements but say I get a land pride which is made for kubota will I be able to use it with any 3 point implement or will it only work with a Land Pride brand implement? I've read some reviews that said they will work with all and I've read others that have said just the opposite and really wanna make sure before I spend the money on one since everything I've got is a different brand.

I had a cat 2 speedco QH on my 6040 kubota. It’s now on my 5100M Deere. Def get you a quickhitch and with fender 3 pt hitch control hookup is a cinch.

Will your quick hitch work with all implements cat 1 and 2 as long as you have bushings for the pins when hooking up to cat 1?

As long as the cat 1 implement accounts for the width of the cat 2 quick hitch. That’s the only issue I’ve had.

I have a 04 Kubota M6800 (predecessor to the 7040) and a 2011 JD 5065e. The JD is heavier and does do a better job with breaking ground. The Kubota runs quieter, smoother, and slightly better fuel consumption. Both machines have 800-1000 hrs on them and my JD has had more issues (all electrical). Also my JD is having hardware backing out, specifically the exhaust heat shield hardware and the coolant overflow mounting hardware. A year ago I thought they were both fairly equal, but now I am leaning towards the Kubota being better built.

I must say that neither one has had any major issues, no leaks, and still function like the day I got them.

In my opinion that M6800 is one tough tractor. That is what my wife's uncle used to have and he sold it when he sold his house and all his land in the country and moved to the city and I was an idiot for not buying it then for what he was asking for it. I watched him do things with that tractor that I would not have attempted with anything less than a bull dozer and he never broke anything on it and he actually cleared the lot with it that his house sat on.
