    Wow, that's a ridiculously bad price on the LS....not even in the ballpark. The base tractor is $20,500 with FEL (and all remotes, etc), the backhoe is $6,350, the third function should run a max of $1,500, forks are $750, and then whatever for loading the tires, but should still be just under $30K.

    Good luck with the kubota, they make good stuff, no question. R,
    Tractor and bucket was $25,050, BH 6995, 3rd remote $895, Forks $695, loaded tires $350 + tax on everything

    sounds to me like a Grand L kubota rather than a standard one.

    If someone asked me what a well built tractor was I would not be talking about creature comfort or add on's. I would be thinking about the engine and drive train etc. Maybe thats just my way of looking at it.

    If you haven't seen this thread, worth a look at manufacturers ratings. As I read it, Kubota tops the list in all categories.

    Did not even see those. I'll have to take a look at them, thanks for pointing this out.

    I have been comparing lift specs, HP, and drive trains between everything I have looked at but for something you spend so much time on creature comforts are nice as well.

    The Grand L's are a step up in comfort, IMHO. I like being able to rest my elbow on arm rest while operating FEL joystick...allows extreme precision in operation when that is important in tight quarters.

    Look at the grand L and going to stick with the MX5100 mainly due to foot pedal setup (fiance likes it better). I can always retrofit the controller to the chassis if need be...

    chain holders

    spinner on steering wheel...or maybe 3 like I have

    quick attach on FEL...a really big convience item

    etc

    Tooth bar check, fiance likes her sun and I like watching her bounce around in her bikini so no top , Front lights should be fine but if I need more I have LEDs at the house I can install, Toolboxs need to look into those for sure and chain holders. 3 spinners on the steering wheel ?
    Quick attach FEL was also ordered along with a 18" bucket for BH.

    My uncle had 3 spinners but then he only had the one arm. Lost the other to a PTO.
