    The DK40 Kioti has TWICE the loader lift capacity of the L series 40 horse kubota.....for alot less money.

    The kubotas are purdy though.

    Actually, the loaders on the 40 hp and larger Grand L kubota's are very comparable to those for the DK40 and up. Here's the difference:

    Full Height Weight of loader
    lift cap at pins + bucket
    Kioti KL401 2761 lb 1284 lb
    Kubota LA854 2489 1622

    Sources:
    KL401 Front End Loader | Kioti Tractors
    Products: LA854 Kubota Canada Ltd.

    The Kioti lifts 272 lb more but the loader frame and bucket are 338 lb lighter than the Kubota. Take your pick... more lift capacity or heavier built loader. Fine tractors either way.

    What 40 horse kubota were you considering, a L4240, L3940, or the L4600? You may want to look at a Kubota MX5100 also. The Kubota Grand L has HST+ which gives you 2 speeds in each in range, stall guard, and you can adjust the responsiveness of the hydro. You also have a Auto throttle advance which links the throttle to the hydro.

    The Kubota has more breakout force too.

    Love my 4240, wouldn't trade it for any other brand (I'm sure all fine tractors). Two days ago I dragged a F350 loaded with firewood up a muddy hill. The neighbor has a MX5000 (back at his house) and even he couldn't believe how strong it pulled. He thought for sure I'd have to get the dozer. Even with one side in the ditch it still pulled him to level ground. The HST+ worked awesome for this as when I got really good traction I was able to "shift" down to get more power without having to stop. When it started getting slippery I was shifting back up to get a little wheel spin to dig down a little deeper.

    Which New Holland are you going to look at? If it's the Boomer line, you may consider looking at the LS instead. They're the same machine, the LS will cost a lot less in most cases, and the loader NH puts on them is quite a bit weaker. When I bought my LS, the local NH dealer quoted me a price that was $8,500 more for the same setup....crazy.

    I've been looking at the DK40 HST Cab.(41hp)

    I went down to kubota and looked at a Grand L3940 cab, (40.5hp), that machine takes the 724 loader...Specs are here Products: LA724 Kubota Canada Ltd.

    Lift capacity to full height
    Kioti KL401 2761 lb /weighs 1284 lb
    Kubota LA724 1865 lb / weighs 1168 lb

    I guess the difference wasn't twice..but about 900lbs

    You have to go to the next model kabota L4240 (44HP) to get the 824 loader.

    The kubotas are beautiful but out of my price range.

    I bought a DK 40 and am very Impressed with it. It has lots of bells and such like pushbutton PTO and cruise and even the 4 wheel drive. Best of all no jerky hitch like the kabota L series.

    So far I have looked at the Kioti and Mahindra
    I am looking at 40 hp tractors equiped with R4s, Fel, toothbar, loaded tires, must have quick attach bucket, and a sub frame mount to accomidate my b80x backhoe that I will not trade!
    So far pro's and con's I have found
    DK40 Pro's like the lift capacity, tractor is a 4 cylinder, seeems to handle ok, the capabilty to move the 3 point from the back of the tractor when hooking up equipment.
    Cons, Seat belt seems close as I am a big guy.
    Quote 22,500 for the base tractor.

    4035 Platform seems to be little more open. handles well, set up very similar to my TC40. Really like the power shuttle shift.
    Con's 3 cylinder engine, much louder than the 4 cylinder
    Quote 24,500 for the base tractor.
