    I hear they will be coming with no cab option.... I don't know what Kubota thinks this is not having their TLB or now their CTL series come with cabs... Even the cabs for their R series wheel loaders are pretty crappy if you ask me. I priced out a R520S loader and it was around $53,000 and the cab felt like an add on curtis or something. Tiny doors, steel walls, horribly loud, no A/C.

    Now their tractor cabs are a whole different story. I own two of them and they are both just beyond comfortable.

    I really like Kubota as a brand, don't get me wrong, but I really see nothing special about this machine that gives it any advantage over any other track machine... Besides the fact that you can get a cab with other machines and not with the Kubota.

    All this talk of them not having a cab with it is just based on what my dealer told me of them not having a cab option, and me quickly scanning through that brochure and no seeing anything about it.

    I'm suprised it took them this long to come out with a skid steer.
