Within the past decade, Massey Ferguson moved the production of its high-horsepower tractors from France to Jackson, Minnesota. A mid-size tractor comparison of the 100.5 cu-in engine in the Kubota L2501 to the turbo 91.3 cu-in engine in the MF 1726E, shows that the Kubota compact tractors can deliver more power at lower RPMs.

Kubota vs. Mahindra

Kubota and Mahindra have both established a strong presence in the United States since the 1990s. Mahindra has five assembly and distribution centers in the U.S., but it still outsources the manufacture of certain engines, tractors, and accessories. The Mahindra eMax 25 is a re-badged tractor manufactured by TYM, and Mahindra has been known to outsource engines from Perkins and Mitsubishi.

One attribute to customers looks for on a tractor comparison chart is top speed. Consumers frequently compare the Kubota L3301, boasting a top speed of 14.1 mph, with the Mahindra 1533, that can reach a speed of 11.9 mph.

The tractor comparison review in our article below speaks to other aspects of customer service, size, and safety.

Kubota vs. Kioti

We start this sub-compact tractor comparison off by clearing up a common misconception: Kubota and Kioti are two distinct companies.

In 2002, Kubota (a Japanese company) engaged in a nearly five-year-long lawsuit against Daedong Industrial Corporation (a South Korean manufacturing firm) and the U.S. distributor of its Kioti tractors. Kioti allegedly infringed on its trademark and trade dress by using the unique Kubota orange color and hood designs. Both tractor manufacturers use the orange color scheme for the bodywork of their machines today.
