    i looked hard at the T4000 series when i bought the kubota at that time NH stopped building them and was gearing up the T4s i could not find one on the lots that had what i wanted. I ended up with orange instead no regrets.

    Yeah the 9540 or any kubota really are fine tractors That I would be proud to own. I just feel the T5050 fits my needs better. And before this gets into a brand bashing thread like so many other threads have done. I think all the tractor makers make fine tractors not just NH and Kubota. Thumbs up.

I guess it is what you get use to.
    No problem i would have liked the 12 spd and the extra 3 pt capacity but i had to draw the line somewhere. As i was already buying a tractor that is about 40-50hp more tractor than what 80% of the people on this forum would recommend and every single dealer for my usage. I was also planing ahead for the future. Prior this tractor i was using a 6 speed so 8 is still an upgrade i still have not had to ask my neighbors to use their compact tractors but they keep coming to me to use my services

    Agreed they are both excellent tractors and both have their strenghts. if its going to live in the field the NH is better suited than the 9540 you would have to go to a larger kubota for fair comparison. NH has more experience building the larger tractors as this is their core business for them. Where as kubota is more into the compacts and utility tractors.

    Oh, I know what you mean. I use the L5740 on 90+ percent of the stuff on my home farm, but from time to time, I have to go get our M8540. I had a bad washout this spring and my son got on one side of the washout with the M8540 and I got on the other side with the L5740 and there were times the L5740 just wouldn't get it done.

    Of course I use the L5740 on the other farm too, but unless it is just convenience or clearance, the M8540 does it.

    Agreed, I could be happy on orange/green/blue/red etc., no brand promotion/bashing here.

    I think that was a wise move. The NH is a lot more tractor for the same money, since you're getting it used.
