How much do you think a dealer would charge to install a rear remote kit on a Kubota MX5400?
Off the top of my head and based on remote prices for other machines I will guess $1K plus/minus a biscuit.

I bought an M6060 recently that came with two rear remotes. I'm having a third installed next week along with a float detent valve and it's going to cost $1,200, but the MX remotes are a bit cheaper so $1,000 as stated above is realistic.

I paid $800 to have a third remote added to the MX6000 open station in May of 2021. When I ordered the MX6000 cab model in July of last year I added all three remotes to the order and was charged $2k for all three remotes, valves, levers and installation.

I had a turnkey dealer add of three about a year ago: 2 center return, one float detent. $1000 for the first one, $500 for the second center return, a bit more for the float detent (something like $600 IIRC). Dropped it off one day, picked up the next day.

That's the only thing in hindsight I feel like I missed on the initial purchase. Should have added the three rear remotes, hydraulic top link, and hydraulic side link from day one.

OK dealer got back to me and said it would be right around $1,000. So sounds like in the ball park. Thanks everyone!
