Kubota

Hi all, I have recently acquired a Kubota snowblower a 6 24,. Has anyone ever heard tell of them making a "regular snowblower".? Not a tractor attachment

I'm guessing you must be in Canada? Is it a K624? The thinking seems to be that's a Kubota engine on an MTD body. Here's a discussion on them: https://www.snowblowerforum.com/foru...ind-built.html

They do have them in Japan, but they appear to be larger units these days... They did make smaller ones in the past.

My employer is right next to a Kubota dealer and I have never seen a standalone snowblower machine there.

My father had one. It was simply a MTD with a Kubota GS200 motor. I kept the motor for my rototiler to replace the B&S engine. This is a **** good motor. It start easily at the first pull, don't make too much noise and don't take any oil. Trouble free motor.

Yes I am in Canada , Thanks for the info, it must be the Kubota engine on the MTD body, it's definitely not like the one in the link you shared. I will attach a photo of mine, currently apart so I can replace the belts.

Thanks for the info,. I was impressed with how easy it had started after being stored for a few years, a couple pulls and she fired right up. Mine is def the Kubota engine on the MTD body
