    Hey guys,

    I am probably going to pull the trigger on a new kubota r630. Local salesman is giving me a Hell of a deal on it and an even better deal on trade in for two older pieces of equipment I don't use anymore. We have 6 wheel loaders already (ranging from 3/4 yard to 3 yard) so i am very familiar with plowing with loaders, just haven't seen a whole lot of these out there plowing yet and was wondering if anyone has any insight plowing with one.

    Thanks

    We have a nursery around here with one... they only use it for there yard, the operator says it works great.... from what I've heard the travel speed could be Alittle quicker? Up here there real pricy, 100k plus

    I looked at one for this year my dealer offered a really good price but the travel speed was the deal breaker. I ended up with a cat 906h that is a year old and the road speed is about 10kmph faster. When you have a limited window that is a big deal. It would have worked if it stayed on one or two lots but we need to run all over because it was bought to do small lots and detail work.
