    Sounds like your bragging, having your wife tell you to get a bigger tractor! I only get to hear that when I am sleeping!

    I would look at all brands. I have been very pleased with the LS. Really depends on what you will be doing the most. Getting the tractor that feels right sure makes the project go better.

    Good luck in your search.

    Yeah, he makes it sound like she is doing all the plowing.
    Better hurry before she changes her mind.


    I agree that it would help to know more about your uses for a tractor and three hours sounds like a long time to clear a drive.

    Some really good information in this thread. The only recommendation I have would be to know your dealer and proximity to you is a major factor. Parts availability, business record, and support after the sale. We all have our favorite brands and most are good machines. I cannot stress enough about good dealer support.

    I was going through the same scenario recently. Of the brands you mention dealer support for, I liked the Kioti the best. I looked at pretty much everything in that range, and it came down to Kioti or LS, and really liked both of them. I wound up getting the LS in 47HP instead of 41, but I'm certain I would have been happy with the Kioti. The thread is only a couple from this one, and it had some great advice. LS R4047H with FEL, and pallet forks, out the door, and delivered, for $22,250 to give you a reference point. Now, I have to wait for it to get here from NC!

    Default Re: Looking for a 40hp tractor

    I have been very happy with my TC40D over the last couple of years. It is 11 years old though(got used a couple years ago, now 650 hours). But, I also liked the similar HP kubota's I have used in the past(rentals). I was actually looking for a L3410, but the second I sold the smaller Kubota, the local market for used L3410 dried up...

    If you are dealing with snow, would maybe a good snowblower be as important as the actual tractor itself?

    What about a 30-40hp compact track loader or skidsteer for moving snow?

    I usually mention what has been said already in this thread; try everything you can... I really like Kubota, but have been really happy with this New Holland too(I like the brake and HST layout a lot).

I really enjoy my massey and a new one is high on the list got a quote on a 1540. I know everyone has their favorites but let me know so pros and cons. I am looking to keep it under 30k brand new and I have local support for Massey F, kioti, kubota, deere, New Holland,case. Thanks!
    My neighbor has a Kubota L4400 with a 6-ft wide FEL bucket. Nice, solid machine that purrs along (my Mahindra 5525 has a loud diesel sound by comparison, which, of course, I really like). Four years ago he paid about $27K including a 6-ft brush hog and a nice post hole digger in the deal.

    Too bad you don't have a local Mahindra dealer. My 2008 5525 with 6-ft FEL bucket (with skid steer quick attach) and triple rear hydraulic remotes (dealer design and install) cost me about $19K.

    Good luck

    I actually do have a Mahindra dealer near by also, all of the dealers are aprox 30-45mins from me.

    The drive way is steep in one part and the snow doesnt have room to be pushed to the side really. I also clear a path to my shed a 35x60 parking area and a large path to my wood boiler.

    I have ten acres at my house and then another 70 and 100 acre lot I will be using at to skid logs and maintain roads.

    Thanks for all the great input guys!
