    Another Newbie Contemplating a New Purchase

    All of the front, quick attach, are just that, quick attach. The 3 point? Takes quite a while to get some attachments, attached. Sometimes it takes me two people, and about an hour. The LXX60-LE turnbuckles for the 3-point stabilizer are a waste of time and money. My dealer didn't show me how to...

    3 Point hitch stabilizers keep bending

    Will these fit the L4060? I bent my turnbuckles in less than one week of ownership (to be fair, I had to break something). Now that it's christened, I want something better. Messicks model list doesn't seem to include the grand L.

    Purchasing Grand L3560 Limited Edition - is this a good price?

    I purchased the grapple from the dealer, and had to order the third function valve. Salesman A told me that it would be here within one to two weeks, salesman B said he needed to contact Kubota and eventually got back to me that it could be as late as 6 weeks. Very PO, not at the delay but the...

    WTB: L4060HST 3rd function or other?

    Just ordered a new L4060HST-LE. The salesdroid told me the 3rd function for my grapple should be ready in a week, two weeks worst case. That was a month ago. I'm looking for anyone's used, or spare 3rd function valve kit (L2265) or two-lever hydraulic quick coupler & third function valve...

    Purchasing Grand L3560 Limited Edition - is this a good price?

    I just ordered my L4060HST-LE with my equine discount and that same loader (LA805) is costing me $6,208 MSRP is $7,760 less 20% ($1,552) = $6,208 You are getting a better deal than with the discount.

    Buying my first Tractor

    As of this morning, 4/13/22, paying cash is even better than free money. With inflation at 8%, converting a pile of paper say $50,000 into a tractor worth $50,000 ,is worth 8% more than it will be in a few months, or worse a year or more. The tractor will hold its value. Now is the worst time...

    Size doesn't matter? Since when?

    Went there this am. Didn't have a lot of stock, but I think I could make due with one of the tractors in stock. Which equine club would make the most sense for a small farm? We're not into any particular breed, just taking in rescue animals, and giving them a home. Also known as pasture...

    A friend's neighbor is selling an M7060 ....

    Exactly, but you can only use one at a time! I've got more than one shotgun for Trap, but that's just because I want a backup for ATA. I have several that I haven't touched in the past year. For those of us just getting started, looking for a decent used tractor, at a fair price, you seriously...

    Great questions, thx. No, we don't have any critters yet(except for 7 cats ;)) That's part of the reason I chose to ask for advise here. Since I don't know the full scope of the work, I'm trying to buy/size the tractor first. Can't get horses without fencing, can't fence without auger, etc...

    Size doesn't matter? Since when?

    At present (Apr 2022), using the config tool at k-usa, the L47, with full front/rear valve kits has a MSRP of $61,000, no other options. Once I configure the L47 along with the attachments I think I need, the cost is easily $100k. A low hours L47 was spotted recently for $47k, and sold quickly...

    Aha, the magic of browser form auto-fill. The profile field is "equipment", and I must have been searching for an lx3310, and didn't notice. Thanks

    Agreed 100%. Sitting on my ass in front of a screen for 20+ years has destroyed my body. If I don't get out and work, it will end me.

    Funny thing is, I never clicked submit on my reply. Walked away and left it for later. It self-submitted; forum software's version of self-abuse?

    This is my 1st "retirement". When *we* get tired of this, and *if* *we're* still alive, then retire for real. Where? $64,000 question. I think this will be the death of me though, so not a big problem worrying about what's next.

    Need to learn markdown editing. Most forum sites use markdown and it's easy to learn. Look at the text of your reply Strikethrough regions are delimited by double tilde ~~Example~~ At this point I'm leaning towards an L4060HST, with a Loader and skipping the backhoe, mostly because of...
