    Default Re: What is a good modern chore tractor for 40K or less?

    I do have an 80 HP with a loader and is a 4X4, it is a Bellarus that I bought new 20 years ago, I have had great luck with it. But now I need to have that at a business that I have for snow removal over the winter. Your info has been worth more to me than anyone else could have been, as I don't like getting info from people selling something. So for 50 thousand, is this 7040 a good value, and would you buy it if you needed one? Again thanks a bunch.

    I believe the LS line as a whole are good values. In my opinion and for my use I couldn't justify the difference in price like I said in my previous post.

    Have you driven the tractor?

    How did you get that price? Is that an over the phone or something a salesman shot at you in the parking lot or a serious sit down price? Is this a 2012 or 13?

    I did get that price from the dealer and I have not seen it or driven the tractor. I called the dealer and he said he had one, I later,called and talked with his secretary and asked if he would be in all afternoon, she said yes. I drove 50 miles to get there and the one the dealer has a tractor, but has it at a different location 100 miles away, so I have not seen it. It might be a 2012 as it is the tier 3 engine, it does have the newer cab, with a large movable steering column. I will go to see it before I buy. As I am sure you know, it is difficult to get 100 percent accurate info when talking to a salesperson.

    Thanks for the help, and is anyone going to get upset with us for going off in a certain direction with this thread?

    Here's a 65 engine hp tractor handling an 8' Disc Mower Conditioner with ease running 5mph. 90hp seems like a lot for general purpose chore tractor.

    $50000 sounds way to high. Back before I bought my slightly used(137 hrs) M7040 HDC/MFWD/LA1353 loader/2 remotes/cast rear wheels for $36,500 I was priced a new one for $42,900

    Thanks for the reply, I will continue to research this. You have a dealer in Austin Texas that has a price of 47,675. I have not tried to negotiate with the dealer yet, but I will. He did indicate that 50 K was his best price. The tier 4 engine is coming soon, and I want to avoid that, more money and more trouble.

    You are comparing a 70 HP (kubota M7040) to a 90 HP (LS P7040). The M7040 is comparable to the P 7010 which I paid $35K for in 2010 with 3 rear remotes.
