You're 6 or 7 years overdue on changing your hydraulic fluid, and your coolant wore out 2-3 years ago. Get ready to buy some parts.No idea on Kabota but love my JD 5325. I've had it 7 or 8 years. Besides the time I damaged a electrical line by pulling it out working in the woods, I change oil and filter and put diesel in it. Not a single issue. Runs like new
Not sure about 5045e price but at my local dealer I can get the 3032e with loader, 60in rotary cutter,60in grooming motor for 21,650.00Hard to go wrong with either brand but I went with JD. I have a question about the model in this example. Looks like the 3032e has an MSRP of around $19k and weighs in at about 2200 lbs. In late 2015 I bought a new 5045e 4x4. It's plumbed for a FEL and is a +5k lb tractor. I paid just under $22k out the door. With the prices being so close on these small tractors when compared to the size I bought, I'm curious why so many buy the smaller tractors. Not trying to start a debate or anything I just wonder if I'm missing something. If they were half the price I wouldn't even ask but $19k compared to $22k (and this assumes buying new which may or may not be the best option) seems like a small difference considering that folks keep tractors for many, many, many years. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Changed hydraulic fluid after first year. Haven't not touched coolant. TxYou're 6 or 7 years overdue on changing your hydraulic fluid, and your coolant wore out 2-3 years ago. Get ready to buy some parts.
