    Buck sounds like heck of a deal !
    A couple questions come to my mind though !
    Not trying to put you on the spot but lets brainstorm this :
    You state tractor is a 2008 and is new ? Have you seen it ? New to me is 3 or4 hours or less.Reason why I say this is usually kubota's don't sit on lot for 3 years(IMHO).
    Does it have a FEL mounted on it ?
    Here are some L5740'S for sale on Tractor House :KUBOTA L5740, Used KUBOTA L5740, KUBOTA L5740 For Sale At TractorHouse.com - Page 1
    Not trying to turn you off from buying it but something about it seems strange to me.Maybe its just way you worded your thread.
    I'll tell ya something else interesting I thought all L5740's were 4wd on T/H unless a misprint their selling a 2wd'the one your looking at would'nt happen to be 2wd would it ?
    Please get back to us outcome will be interesting to know.
    Hope some of this helps !

    I bought my 2006 L4400 in May of 2009 with 1.8 hrs. For the price of some slightly faded paint that a buffer fixed, I saved several thousand dollars. They threw in a set of filters and all the fluids to do changes. Full warranty. Qualified for zero-down, zero-percent interest, financing.

    Was a no-brainer to me.

    it all checked out...paperwork submitted waiting to hear back from KCC




    Did buffing make it look like new? I am thinking I might paint the hood and fenders and wheels, buff the small tight areas. I will just wait till its home to decide

    Does it have the FEL, or just the valve?

    I hope your getting a loader with it and a rear remote! The discoloration can be fixed. We use color pre-up from collinite wax company in utica NY.
