Inside Bulloch Business with DeWayne Grice - Low Country now full-service Kubota dealer
Low Country Kubota Web

               Since introducing its first tractor to the United States in 1969, Kubota products have continued to gain popularity. Kubota filled a product void in the American marketplace for a sub-compact tractor - the Kubota 21 HP L200 was an overnight success.
        Even though Kubota tractors have long had a presence in the Statesboro market, Low Country Machinery opened Statesboro's first full-line and full-service dealership this week. Named Low Country Kubota, they are located in the former Southern Eagle Automotive building located at 9066 Highway 301 South in Statesboro.
        Kubota Tractor Corporation was formed in 1972 and the company continued to expand its product line for the U.S. market. This expansion has continued over the last 40 years and Kubota now offers products in a wide variety of segments including lawn mowers, utility vehicles, construction equipment, agriculture tractors and hay equipment. There are currently more than 1,100 authorized Kubota dealerships in the United States.
        Low Country Kubota will be a full-line Kubota Dealer, offering more than 30 tractors for Ag and CE, compact and utility-class construction equipment, consumer lawn and garden equipment, hay tools and spreaders, commercial turf products and utility vehicles on site.
        The company also will have a large inventory of parts, including Land Pride attachments and a fully-staffed Service Department with more than 40 years of combined experience servicing Kubota tractors and equipment. The Statesboro location will include an 8,900-square-foot facility with a 3,600- square-foot showroom.
        Low Country Kubota is owned by Georgia Southern University graduates and Effingham natives, Chris and Jessica Shea. Chris and Jessica have a long family history in the farming and agriculture industry both in Effingham and Bulloch Counties and are ready to meet the machinery needs of area farmers. The purchase of the building was assisted by local real estate agent, Jason Lanier.
        "My wife and I are excited to bring Low Country Kubota to Statesboro," Chris Shea said. "I want to thank Jason for helping throughout this project, as well as the entire community of Statesboro for welcoming us with opening arms."
        Low Country Machinery, the parent company is a 15-year old company that has operated a group of Ag equipment providers in Statesboro's neighboring communities, including Massey Ferguson, JCB, Scag, Echo and Woods Attachments. Low Country Machinery prides itself on offering the highest quality products with excellent customer service.
        "LCM hires top tier applicants for our businesses. We want customers to receive the best service available from certified employees. Our staff is highly trained and are the best in the industry."
