    If they are built like kubotas tractors, they will be a serious competitor in the existing market!

    I spent over 25 years in the attachment industry and was told at one time by a Kubota executive that Kubota was getting their fair share of the skid steer loader market, in terms of dollars, by supplying engines to the industry. That's probably one of the reasons that they are just now entering the market.

    True enough... They might put a pretty big dent on bobcats....

    It will depend on pricing tho...
