    In 2010 2 cab doors became an option and 2 svc standard. My 2010 has the sliding bar for the 3pt, but the 2011 has chains now and the fuel tank no longer comes up the inside of the fender.

    I recently bought an M7040SUD, at the time comparing it to a Deere 5075E. It's a decent step up to the 5083E. The 5075E wasn't quite as refined as I would have liked, even considering it's just a basic tractor. But one thing about kubota finance rates, you can buy down the 72 month rate to 0%. Depending on how much you're putting down, this can be a nice option. They don't advertise it, but it was an option when I bought.

    Gotcha. Mine's an 09 and I haven't shopped since.

    I understand. That was kind of my point, although it was worded poorly.

    The MX10 can be set up as a trailing mower and does not have to be 3pt. I have a 10' Kodiac on my TN75 and love it. I couldn't imagine it as a 3pt lift though, it would be too heavy.

    I don't know the kubota, it was never in the running for me, but I took a very good look at the Deere and was about to buy it. Dealer quote was $43k which was pretty competetive. I only ended up the the NH because it fell into my hands at half that price. It's a very good tractor but it's not nearly as nice as the 5083.

    well as an update, i bought the 5083E limited with a 563 heavy duty NSL loader and an mx10 full mount 3pt. I have used a mx10 on my neighbors 5510 deere and it kept the front end light but he had NO ballast what so ever on that machine. I got all four tires loaded and 4 suitcase weights for the front end, I shouldn't have a problem and if i do, thats why they split those brake pedals!

    Congratulations on your new tractor, I am sure it will serve you well.

    I'm not familiar with the MX10, but we used a 10' Woods 121 3-point for years and the weight was not a problem. When we replaced it with a Woods DS1260, we went with a pull type as it is much heavier and we mow some fairly steep grades.

    My 5083e thinks my mx8 is too heavy. It handles the mower, but I definitely know it's there. When I road the tractor I lower the tail wheels to the ground to get rid of some weight.

    AGGIE00- do you have your tires ballasted and front weights? I got all 4 of mine loaded with beet juice and I have 400lbs of front weights. Call me crazy but I think that should be enough, if not, I can always get more weights, or run with the loader on.
