Abigail Frost

Abigail is the owner of Hanah Grace Gardens landscaping company in Point Roberts, Washington located just south of Vancouver, B.C., nestled on a peninsula surrounded by the ocean. After using Kubota equipment many years ago when first getting into the landscaping industry, Abigail came back to her Kubota roots with the purchase of a SZ19-36 when she needed an efficient machine to keep up with her growing business demand. Abigail maintains properties ranging from small cottages to large estates and many days she can see whales and orcas from her oceanfront office The Golden Rule leads her business and she aims to provide top-notch customer service to every client, not to mention the pride she takes in keeping machines looking their best each day. Since Point Roberts, WA is only accessible by land through Canada, border shutdowns across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic left many vacation homes in the area uninhabited and unkept. Abigail began taking on an influx of new clients and knew that if she was going to keep up, she needed a piece of equipment that could keep up with her. The SZ19-36 stand-on mower did just that, providing top-quality work at efficient speeds. “The SZ19-36 cuts down cut time significantly”, she says. Abigail notes that she loves the SZ19-36 because of its range of features such as the compact body being ideal to navigate small cottage properties yet its speed being perfect to manage sprawling estates. She says the ergonomic benefits like reduced wear and tear on muscles and joints are an added bonus!

Peter Mills

Peter Mills, the owner of Elevated Trail Design, a North Carolina based trail design company born out of Peter’s love for adventure coupled with his passion for the outdoors. Elevated Trail design owns a fleet of Kubota U17 Excavators to construct premium trails across the country running from mountain bike and equestrian to walking trails in state parks.  After working for trail design teams at ski resorts in college, Peter knew that he wanted to take his talents back to North Carolina to start his own company. Elevated Trail Design “uses natural landscape while maintaining high standards of safety and sustainability”- with a goal of constructing trails that expand trail-goers appreciation for the outdoors. Building both long and short length trails with varying terrain, Peter relies on the versatility of the U17 Excavator to operate across a diverse range of projects. For mountain terrain, he loves the U17’s efficient maneuvering to navigate steep sidehills while he appreciates the compact size for single track trails with narrow pathways.

Grandpa Miller

He was born in Kansas and spent his younger years doing many jobs like being a caretaker and driving school buses. Living through the Great Depression, Grandpa has a healthy appreciation for living off the land, so he decided to buy and cultivate a hobby farm- ultimately landing in West Virginia. Here, he grew crops and his wife would can them. They enjoyed using and saving everything that they could. Little did Grandpa know at the time he would watch his great-grandchildren be raised on this very same land over 60 years later. He currently resides with his live-in caretakers (his granddaughter and her husband) along with his 5 great-grandchildren that keep him on his toes. In his extra time, he enjoys playing solitaire and weaving baskets by hand. Grandpa Miller uses his Kubota RTV as his main source of transportation. He still loves to tackle jobs around the farm, take his great-grandchildren out fishing at the pond that he built, and even drives his RTV to and from his local church.

Melissa

For those who did not grow up on tractors, the idea of hopping on and operating one can be intimidating. Lucky for all the newbies out there, Kubota’s sub- and compact tractors are designed for intuitive use and are easy to learn. Just ask Melissa Morgan of Outdoors with the Morgans; Melissa and her husband, Mike, have been putting their new BX23S to work on their property doing everything from hauling wood, brush hogging to trail building.

Before their BX, Melissa hadn’t had much tractor time outside of riding in a hay wagon when she was younger. After taking some small, but important steps, Melissa is now taking full advantage of her BX23S, getting projects done around their property and loving every minute of it.

Check out the video below to hear from Melissa herself on five things she’s learned as a new tractor owner.

Those Plant Ladies

You probably know that we're all about working smarter and not harder... especially when we're completing a manual labor job! With so much sweat and strain in executing an installation, we always want to utilize tools to the best of our ability to make our job easier! With so many options on the market, it's hard to know what works and what is worth the investment. Equipment makes us feel more confident and more empowered to get the job done most efficiently. And let's be real, who doesn't love driving a tractor?!

Kubota and New South Tractor (Kubota dealer located in Newton, NC) allowed us to test two amazing tractors for our installation job. New South delivered these brand spankin' new tractors to our job site and they showed up in style.

Lets review these tractors:

LA1065 on the MX6000 series enclosed cab tractor

The first tractor: heavyweight champion of the world (are you imagining me introducing a boxing round?) LA1065 on the MX6000 series enclosed cab tractor.

This bad boy was a hoss! It's practically the CadillacTM of tractors when we're talking about comfort and luxury; it has an enclosed cab to protect from elements and controlled cabin air control with both air conditioning and heat. This was something that was brand new to us and we loved it! In my previous life in the turf world, those long days spent on the tractor, renovating athletic fields, or spreading fertilizer, this would have been perfect in the summertime and the cold winter scraping snow and ice.  For this installation, we needed a heavy-duty piece of machinery to unload the 1500-pound trees off of the truck. Since the higher you go in the air, the more off-balance the tractor becomes, ensuring we had a heavy, properly ballasted tractor to off-set the front load was key. The LA1065 came with forks on the front, which worked perfectly to hold these large rootballs. Once we had the holes dug, we lifted and positioned it inside of the tree well and set down in its new permanent home. We know that this tractor can come with a multitude of implements, so I am confident we didn't use it to its fullest potential, but to unload and position heavy trees, it worked like a charm. TPL-approved for sure! 

LA340+ BT603 Backhoe on the BX series 4WD tractor

Up next, we have the small but mighty, lightweight champion of the world: the LA340+ BT603 Backhoe on the BX series 4WD tractor.

The best feature about this tractor is the compact size of it. For this job, we needed a tractor to fit into a small yard to move materials. While we were met with unforeseen fencing issues that led us to not be able to maneuver this piece of equipment into the backyard, it still worked out great for the digging of the large tree wells and moving new material around. The new tree wells already had hardscape stone edging around them and we needed to dig down roughly 33" and 40" wide to allow for our new tree rootball to sit at grade-level. We parked the BX near the digging zone, deployed the feet to brace the tractor, turned the seat around to face the rear, buckled up, and began using the mini backhoe to dig the holes. I don't know about you, but there is something so cool about a digging arm! Without a doubt, this feature saved us a good 4 hrs of digging and we were able to complete it in roughly 30 minutes without even breaking a sweat! 

Once the trees were installed, we used the LA340's loading bucket to haul 12 smaller trees to the backyard, four tons of small boulder stone, 30 yards of double-ground mulch, and six yards of topsoil. We maneuvered into the small front yard square footage like a champ, not having to wonder if we were crossing property boundaries. 

To say we are happy with these products is an understatement. I mean, if Kubota could make a heli-tractor to help get into tiny backyards in HOA communities, we'd be first in line to test it out. Thank you, Kubota and New South Tractor for making our jobs easier!

Geared to Give: Iowa Army Veteran Receives Kubota M7, Baler

Since 2015, Kubota has partnered with the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC) on the ‘Geared to Give’ program, which matches military veterans’ needs with donated Kubota equipment. Through the program, each year a total of five farmer veterans are selected from applicants to FVC’s Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund, with 36 veterans receiving equipment and grants since it was established.

Last year, Army veteran Cody Miller of Thayer, Iowa, was one of the five veterans selected to receive Kubota equipment through the program, receiving a 250-hour lease on a Kubota M7 Series tractor with loader and a BV4580 baler.

“The tractor and baler really mean a lot,” said Miller, who served a deployment to Afghanistan during his more than 13 years of service in the Army. “It’s hard to put into words because without good equipment, you can’t farm anymore—it’s almost impossible. I’m so grateful to Kubota and the Geared to Give program for this opportunity.”

Cody’s story is a familiar one for many rural veterans across the country who have embarked on—or returned to—careers in agriculture after their time in the service ended. He grew up farming on the family farm, which has been in his family for multiple generations, and after high school he joined the military to see the world before ultimately returning home to start his own operation.

Cody’s farm, named Full Moon Farms, consists of 40 acres of row crops—mostly soybeans—and he also rents 200 acres for raising cattle and hay. Additionally, he raises ducks and chickens, and is learning about the equine industry.

Prior to receiving his equipment last year, Cody was making do by borrowing his dad’s tractor and baler, however, that equipment was unreliable as it was constantly breaking down. With the M7 and baler, Cody is looking forward to bringing a little more stability to his farming operation.

“I’ve never had anything this nice or new before, so it has been a remarkable experience,” said Miller, who is in the process of completing an ag management degree at his local community college. “If there was something above icing on the cake, then that’s what this tractor and baler are.”

Outdoors with the Morgans Gets a New Sidekick

Mike Morgan of Outdoors with the Morgans has a saying that ‘tractors, chainsaws and firewood are among the finer things in life.’ Well, now he can add Kubota RTVs to that list because the Morgan family just welcomed the durability and speed of the Kubota RTV-XG850 Sidekick onto their property. 

Mike and his wife, Melissa, have long been fans and owners of Kubota equipment, and they were excited to partner with us last year on the MX Series and BX23S tractors, which they feature on their YouTube channel Outdoors with the Morgans, which has more than 200,000 subscribers. Mike also purchased a KX057-4 compact excavator in December, and now with the addition of the Sidekick, the Morgan property has become a little slice of paradise in Kubota Country.  

Check out their latest video where Mike puts the Sidekick to work and gives his initial thoughts on the equipment.

Buck Commander Joins Kubota Country

Though deer hunting season has been closed for several weeks around the country, here at Kubota we still have bucks on our mind. That’s because we’re excited to announce we recently partnered with the team at Buck Commander to feature Kubota equipment on their hit digital show.

The Buck Commander team consists of Willie Robertson, who is best known as the star of A&E’s TV show “Duck Dynasty,” country music stars Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, and former Major League Baseball players Ryan Langerhans, Adam LaRoche and Tombo Martin. 

Over the next season, you’ll see these Buckmen putting Kubota MX Series and L3901 tractors to work on their hunting and personal properties in Kansas and Louisiana for everything from planting food plots to property management. If you’re not familiar with the show, you can watch it online on YouTube and Facebook, but also be sure to give them a follow on Instagram

In the meantime, check out this video of Willie Robertson talking about the L3901 and how they’re using Kubota equipment on their properties.

Harnessing the Power of University Programs to Help Improve Equipment and Tap Tomorrow’s Thought Leaders Today

Kubota has a long and proud history of supporting agriculture academia under its “For Earth, For Life” mantra. The company has a vested interest in preparing youth for leadership, responsibility, and service to a global society, and is committed to harnessing the research-intensive power of the university system to help improve its own agriculture, construction and turf equipment.

These collective projects and continued innovations will work to improve people’s lives where the company operates and beyond. Departments throughout the company are partnering with colleges and universities to provide training on a wide variety of agricultural, construction and turf topics for Kubota dealers, employees, students and organizations, with a goal to enhance equipment knowledge, safety and efficiency through hands-on experience and expert instruction.

Here’s a look a few of these innovative programs:

  • Texas A&M University System and Kubota embarked on a partnership in 2017 within its Research and Development program to test equipment performance in various applications within the University system’s testing facilities. The research conducted by Texas A&M students, staff and faculty touches on five societal challenges: feeding the world, protecting the environment, improving health, enriching youth, and growing the economy. For more information, visit www.tamus.edu.
  • When faculty members of the University of Georgia, Athens (UGA), College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, recognized the need for their county extension agents to gain more experience in hay and forage production, they asked Kubota to provide the equipment expertise. As a result, Kubota provided hay product experts to help UGA on their workshop, “Producing High Quality Hay and Improving Animal Performance,” which provides in-depth hay production training to a number of county extension agents. Farmers often seek the expertise of their county extension service within their state as a principal resource for research and knowledge. This program partnership is great way for Kubota to help farmers by training agents. For more information on this important work, visit https://extension.uga.edu/
  • Ohio State University, Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI), which offers 26 associate degrees, has been named one of five top trade schools in the United States. ATI partnered with Kubota’s Tech College training program this fall, where students will have the opportunity to be trained using high-tech Kubota equipment in areas such as diagnostics, preventative maintenance and major repair.

“Skilled technicians are the backbone of every Kubota dealership around the country, and the demand for those skills is only increasing,” said Stacy B. Schroeder, senior manager of Kubota University. “We are excited to partner with ATI to establish the Kubota Tech College training program to build the qualified workforce needed to support the growth and prosperity of Ohio and its residents and beyond. We'll closely collaborate to identify and build the most relevant skills students will require to successfully enter the rural workforce in the equipment industry.”

Kubota Expands Partnership with Ohio State Agricultural Technical Institute; Kubota Tech College Training Program Now Available to Students

Kubota Expands Partnership with Ohio State: Kubota Tech College Training Program Designed to Build the Future’s Workforce of Agriculture Equipment Technicians

Kubota Tractor Corporation is partnering with ATI to establish the Kubota Tech College training program. Students will be trained using high-tech Kubota equipment in areas such as diagnostics, preventative maintenance, and major repair.

“The two programs that will be impacted are the power equipment program and hydraulic power and motion control program,” said Robby Frutchey, ATI coordinator for both programs. In the power equipment program, students learn about career preparation, electrical courses, engine diagnostics, mobile heating and air conditioning, welding, and power transmission.

Students in the hydraulic power and motion control program learn fundamentals of fluid power and components, hydraulic circuits, basic electricity, basic pneumatics, analog and digital electronics, power transmission, and computer-aided design.

“While Kubota Tractor Corporation has been a strong ally of ATI in the past, this newest partnership will provide an impactful experience in the classroom and help us train the next generation of skilled technicians,” said Kris Boone, assistant dean and ATI director. “Their contributions will not only make our teaching more diverse but will also make our program stand out.”

In addition to equipment loans and annual updates through 2023, Kubota is donating more than $21,000 to purchase tool sets and complete renovations to the ATI Engineering Technologies Laboratory. The development of the training curriculum will include train-the-trainer activities to ensure that instructors stay current with industry requirements and skills. Kubota dealers will also offer work-based training, including internship and apprenticeship opportunities.

"Skilled technicians are the backbone of every Kubota dealership around the country, and the demand for those skills is only increasing," said Stacy B. Schroeder, senior manager of Kubota University. "We are excited to partner with ATI to establish the Kubota Tech College training program to build the qualified workforce needed to support the growth and prosperity of Ohio and its residents and beyond. We'll closely collaborate to identify and build the most relevant skills students will require to successfully enter the rural workforce in the equipment industry."

In addition to receiving an associate of applied science degree from ATI, students will have the chance to become industry-certified Kubota technicians through The National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3). NC3 offers program certifications built on national skills standards in many areas.

“By the year 2022, the Kubota network of dealerships needs to hire 3,400 new technicians. We are excited to have been approached by Kubota and NC3 to be a part of this goal,” Frutchey said.

When students become a Kubota-certified technician through NC3, they will be proficient in eight areas: pre-delivery and inspection; preventative maintenance; maintenance procedures; electrical; hydraulics; engine; powertrain; and brakes, steering, and suspension.

Ohio State ATI, which offers 26 associate degrees, has been named one of five top trade schools in the United States by both Fox Business News and Niche.org.

“Our goal is for Ohio State ATI to become a workforce development hub,” said Boone. “We’re doing this by growing and developing a future workforce that meets the needs of the agricultural industry with a focus on K–12 education through Ohio 4-H, preparing ATI students for the jobs of tomorrow, and updating current industry personnel with recertification and advisory programs.”

Take a Closer Look at the KX040-4 with Kyle Stumpenhorst of Rural Renovators

Last year, Kyle Stumpenhorst became an official member of Kubota Country when he partnered with us on two pieces of construction equipment—the SVL95-2s compact track loader and the KX040-4 compact excavator.

A longtime fan and owner of Kubota construction equipment, Kyle owns Rural Renovators in Franklin Grove, Illinois, where he builds custom post frame buildings for the residential, agricultural and commercial sectors. Over the past few months, Kyle has been putting his new Kubota equipment to work on the jobsite which he features on his YouTube channel, RR Buildings, as well as his Instagram and Facebook profiles.

Previously, Kyle did a walkaround of the SVL95-2s, which you can see by clicking here. Now he’s back to show off his KX040-4 and tell us what he likes about the equipment. Hear in his own words why the KX040-4 is the excavator he’s always wanted.

Peterson Farm Brothers Review the Mighty M7 Series

If you’re not familiar with the Peterson Farm Brothers, chances are you haven’t been on YouTube lately. With more than 70 million views—and counting—between their main channel, Peterson Farm Brothers, and their second channel, Peterson Family Farm, the brothers are one of the most well-known ag-focused channels on the platform.

The Peterson Farm Brothers, Greg, Nathan and Kendall Peterson, farm with their family on their 5th generation farm located in Assaria, Kansas, where they raise beef cattle, and grow corn, alfalfa and forage sorghum to feed their cattle, in addition to growing wheat, milo, soybeans and sunflowers on about 2,000 acres.

After partnering with Kubota last year on the M7 Series, BV4580 baler, Sidekick and RTV-X1100C, the brothers have been running orange equipment on their farm which was previously mostly green.  Now, after almost a year of using the M7 Series for tasks like pulling the grain cart during harvest, feeding cattle and running their hay operation, Greg tells us what he likes about having the M7 on their farm.

Do More on Your Jobsite with Kubota Construction Equipment

Kubota compact construction equipment is purpose built and designed to help operators do more on their jobsite. The extensive line of Kubota excavators, skid steers, track loaders and wheel loaders can tackle a variety of conditions and challenges, no matter the job, and help users stay safe, comfortable and efficient while operating.

Kubota equipment is a favorite among seasoned contractors, construction outfits, rental yard owners and weekend warriors alike for its reliability, performance and comfortable operating experience. If you’re not familiar with Kubota or haven’t had the chance to use our products, here are three ways Kubota equipment can help you do more on your jobsite.

1. Kubota construction equipment is built for ease of use and operator comfort

Kubota puts ease of use at the top of our priority list when designing products. Simple dashboards, ergonomic controls, and comfortable operating stations make stepping into the cab of any one of our machines a comfortable and enjoyable experience. These features make operating Kubota equipment easier, decreases operator fatigue and increases jobsite efficiency. The intuitive controls also make Kubota equipment more accessible for a wide range of end users. Easier to use equipment means less time explaining how to operate a machine and more time doing the work, with less distractions. 

2. Kubota compact construction equipment can get more done on a variety of jobsites

Whether you’re building pools in a new housing development or clearing brush on your property, you can rest assured there’s a Kubota model right for you. Take the Kubota compact excavator lineup for example. It currently features 12 different product offerings ranging from 1–8 tons with five reduced tail swing offerings and seven conventional tail swing offerings. Kubota also offers both compact skid steers and track loaders to ensure end users have a machine that can tackle any terrain from hard paved surfaces for skid steers or dirt and turf for track loaders.

3. Kubota offers a number of attachments to turn one piece of equipment into many

On top of the wide variety of equipment options, Kubota also offers a number of performance-matched Land Pride attachments. Kubota now offers over 15 different attachment categories, with over 40+ attachments in total, for our skid steer and track loader line ups alone. Kubota compact track loaders and skid steers are the swiss army knives of jobsites thanks to their abundance of quality performance-matched attachments, but other machines like excavators and wheel loaders also benefit from the versatility of their own unique group of attachments. When thinking about how to get more done with less equipment, always be sure to consider attachments.
