The B26 is an updated and more powerful version of my old B24, so much about this tractor is very familiar to me. Kubota has made a lot of improvements in the 15 years since I bought my B24, though. The controls are much improved, and much easier to use. The key controls are all easily reached with the seat swiveled around backwards for backhoe work; I especially appreciate that. The hydraulics are now very easy to make slow motions with – that took special skill with my old B24; now it's easy as pie.
I put the new tractor and chipper/shredder to work today. I started chipping up the huge pile of brush that I've been accumulating since last April. I made it through about a third of the pile today (with only a half day's work). I think I'll be able to knock out the rest tomorrow. The Wallenstein chipper shredder is a very nice piece of machinery. I bought it after reading dozens of reviews online, and I bought it from a place in Pennsylvania – no local dealers had it. I have to say that it was quite a relief to see that the machine was every bit as good as those reviews said it was :)
