A big chunk of the new MX6000 HSTC showed up from Japan this past Friday but we're still waiting on the FEL and a few other pieces. Now I'm really starting to get excited.

Congrats on your new tractor. I know how you feel! After waiting two months for my MX 6000 cab with FEL to arrive it has been sitting at the dealership for 3 weeks waiting on hydraulic valves. I did get to sit in it!

Thanks for the kind words. I upgraded to rear defrost and wiper so will get to keep the standard rear glass shown as a spare. You never know when you might need it.

Anyone notice that the top of the cab is dented? My dealer just called to tell me that they've ordered a replacement top which will be here before the other parts. They've seen a couple like this already and think it has something to do with how they're being shipped. The plastic top is held on with screws and supposedly you have to remove it to get access to some A/C components.

Nice. My dealer had a brand new one with FEL available last week (already assembled) but I turned it down for the L6060. HST + on the M62 spoiled me.

Folks I am proud to meet you. Below is delivery day earlier this year and later this summer when BH finally arrived. Enjoy that new smell. And if you took the kubota finance sleep well knowing that each passing day you are saving money on a dollar against inflation. I hope your buy experience is happy one. When They dropped the little girl off the rollback I suggested the driver leave me alone with her for a little bit cause it’s going to get ‘awkward and I need some adult time with her’. We had a laugh for sure. Oh my…Best money I ever spent so far.

You already have one. Pull the FEL of your other one until the new one arrives. Problem solved. I take it you would rather use the cab one right? Congrats By The Way!

The L6060 is without doubt a nice upgrade over the MX6000, and if I didn't already have a lot of money invested in this endeavor with implements, trailers and other accessories I would opt for the L6060 every time. Comparing transmissions is like comparing the space shuttle to a crop duster! 😂

Thanks, but I'm ok with the waiting part. There are more parts needed than just the FEL. I chose every available option and those parts are trickling in also.

I've said this a number of times but my main motivation to get the cab model is the dust. I have no problem with the cold or even the heat, but the dust poses a serious health risk in addition to being obnoxious. Since there's no dust at present, and my current MX is sold in the form of a commitment to buy regardless of hours, I feel no pressure to have the dealer deliver the new one.

Funny you mention the investment in other things…When the dealer called me to inquire about the MX6000 I thought hard about it, but then realized I had $1500 worth of mods sitting in my garage that only fit the L6060. Curse you Paul! https://www.specialtyrepairscustommods.com/

That looks like a horizontal bump. Either it fell over on that side, or they hit it with something (fork lift, etc). Double check that the glass or chassis it sits in isnt damaged. It’s amazing just how little of a nudge from this heavy equipment it takes to break something.

Buying the tractor is just the start. It's not hard to spend $20k on implements, another $5k to $10k on a trailer and $2k on accessories.

I have a great relationship with the guys at the local dealer so I'm not worried about any issues not being addressed. They're friends and not just sales people and I know that they didn't do the damage but will take care of it.

The manager of my local dealer bought my BX25 and is always texting me photos of his son or him doing various projects.
