Bit of a story...
So My little L210 finally broke. I have been abusing the crap out of it for the past several months building a log home, and the steering gear box sheered apart under a load that no sane person would have ever put this little tractor through.
So I headed to my friendly deal to see about getting the parts to rebuild the gearbox. $1087
I called all the local and not so local salvage yards with no success.
So I started looking at the tractors they had there, and I see the L3700SU loader package, which I think would be a great replacement for the L210 while I fix it.
So I talk to the wife, she agrees we can afford it, and I take her to the dealer to look at it. She says to me, "It's too small"
me buy a bigger one. (darn the luck)
So, we are now the proud owners of an M5140. I don't know of anyone else who has had one, it replaced the M5040 in kubota's lineup, and 2011 is the first year.
So, once I actually have it in my possession, (Dealer still has to install my FEL) I'll snap a few pics and post them. If anyone has any questions about this new beast, please let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.
Lastly, does anyone know where I can get a steering gear box/steering column shaft for an L210?
