I'm pretty sure that's some sort of bastardized Kubota.
Don`t follow Kubota models or values, however, to my untrained eye it looks like a heck of a tractor if one could buy it for $2500. Those darn :canada: ~s get all the deals.
I assume it`s a 3 cyl diesel ?

I suppose a belly mower for it is hard to find and spendy. (?)

The tires make me think that it's grey market. They quite often come over with riceland tires that are super agressive. Common parts like filters can be a real problem to get.
The colors are not correct for a grey market Kubota.

WHat is 'Grey Market' a reference to?
Manufacturers will make specific models for Pacific Rim countries that are sold and supported only there. Entrepreneurs in North America will buy up these tractors from the used marketplace in those countries, load them onto a boat and ship them to Canada or the USA. Because they are able to buy them fairly cheap, they can sell them for a very competitive price when they arrive on our shores. The problem is mostly one of parts availability and supporting information such as parts manuals, Op manuals and service manuals that are written in English. Such tractors are called "grey market" units because the manufacturers frown heavily on their import but are powerless to prevent it.

I have a guy near me that buys grey market Komatsu product. We bought a rubber-tired loader from him and getting parts for it was a challenge every time we needed them. Thankfully, we did not need that unit any longer and we sold it.
