    Default Kubota L45

    Looking for advice...I have been tractor shopping for about a month now and have had my eyes on the new kubota L45. I have approx 50 acres... I plan on plowing my driveway, pulling trees for firewood, landscaping areas, small orchard work, and food plots. The machine does more than what I really need it to do although many people say I won't go wrong with the extra hp for when its needed. The price tag is $41,000 from dealer with loader and backhoe (Does anyone know what the price range is for the L45). A few recommendations from others also suggested the L series (4240). Im really looking to get a backhoe and from what i understand once you add a back hoe to that unit the price will be up over $40,000. I'm really have my mind set on a Kubota just not sure which one to go with. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I use to have the older version that was 48HP. This model,, the 45 is a true 3 pump backhoe, easy to remove the hoe and use 3 pt impliments,, I would go for this rather than another L model such as 4240 or something,, these models still are only 2 pump, main and steering, and have no where near the power the L45 has.

    You could pic up a used TLB four wheel drive of good size for about 15,000 or less. Then you could settle on a second unit which would help you better maintain your property.

    I do like the L-45 but I feel you might be short on options with only one tractor.

    +1 I recently saw a couple L48 models locally with low hours in the 20k price range.

    Depending on budgets, and if you need to move equipment off site....

    You might be able to pick up a used full-size construction backhoe for somewhere in the mid $20K range.

    Then you can get a slightly smaller tractor for the 'light' work.

    Let the big-boy do the big work, and let the little guy do the light grading, mowing etc...

    $40K +/- is about the right price range for the L45
