When a company backs its products with a warranty that is among the industry’s best, you know that they—and you—can count on quality that will last. Kubota recently announced it has furthered its commitment to the hay and forage segment by offering a two-year standard limited warranty across its entire hay tools line, including Kubota balers, and a three-year standard limited warranty on its disc mower and disc mower conditioner cutterbars and gearboxes.

“We know that farmers have so many struggles to contend with, but equipment shouldn’t be one of them,” said Dave Palmer, Kubota senior product manager for implements. “Our warranty program is a commitment that we will always be there, and we’re backing that assurance with a longer warranty because we’re confident in the quality of our products.” Read more
