Much appreciation for the help on this forum. I have been researching and watching listing for the past 6 weeks and found a match today.

I ended up with a 4060 HTSC Limited Edition with 5 hours on it! I have been checking Facebook daily and it showed up this morning 50 miles from my house. I contacted the owner right away, saw it this afternoon, and snapped it up for $40K. Private party. No sales tax. Newer and more money than I had planned on, but I felt it was too good to pass up.

It may be a Limited. But this owner optioned almost all of the missing things back on. Only change I will be making is selling the light material bucket and getting a regular bucket and some forks.

Many operating questions will be coming at this forum soon. Anxious to learn enough to answer some myself in the coming months.

Built in 2023.

Apparently bought for snow removal, but after getting almost none last winter, he no longer wants it.

Nice ride, and nice find man!(y)(y)

Sometimes I wish I had those style tires on my 2501.

Kind of a "damned if you do, and damned if you don't" thing...

Yeah I was searching for one with turf or industrial tires. Not sure which will be best. The dealer the owner bought it from is open to a swap/trade on these. So I will start with these and see how it does. Mostly maintaining trails in prairie areas with a rotary cutter. Some woods work too. I’m thinking they may be just fine.

I have turfs on my small Massey (bx size) and they have been excellent blowing snow and mowing grass. It has never seen mud, but I don't think they would do well in mud. Tractor looks excellent. If it has the two speed lever on the steering column, you will love it, one of the best features of the grand L series.

it does have the two speed on the steering column. One of the reasons I went orange over green!

Thanks! I am more than just a little excited!!
In case you have not realized it yet the Grand L model tractors is the most loaded, fanciest tractor Kubota makes. Many features other models don't have, can't get. Might want to get a brochure for your machine to show all the features.

While you still have the option to change tires/wheels you might want to consider this. You mentioned woods work. It’s my impression that turfs have softer sidewalls than R4 tires and more prone to puncture.

Nice job. 👍. Looks great.

That bucket is huge…how big is that? If buying another bucket, Seems like if you were creative you could use that for rear ballast or even a carry all of sorts if you add an 3pt:SSQA adapter for your 3pt. Be nice to keep and add some manure tines as well if wanted to haul debris.

Congratulations on the new machine 🥃

86" light material bucket. Going to sell it or work a trade with the dealer that originally sold it.

Did you buy it from a private party or a dealer?
