    Gamble,

    Does this mean the DTC's are coming standard with the oversized R4's in 2007??
    I paid some extra for mine (at your recommendation) and I'm glad I did. They help out alot with the Hoe and overall stability and traction. Good call. Here are a couple pics for comparision:

    Oversized R4's (notice the lack of space within wheelwell):

    No...the 300/360/390 will still have an option for larger tires. The 270/320 will come standard with larger industrial tires. Off to the expo, be back with lots of pics tomorrow!

    Looking forward to the pics and will definitely keep the larger tires thing in mind. Also, if you can explain what a LS and LG are. On the web site I see Compacts, 5, 6 and 7 Series. Nothing abolut LS/LG.

    LS/LG is the manufacturer of the tractor.

    Are the 39 HP models the only ones that come with a backhoe package in this brand?

    Disregard. I answered the question myself after going to the website.

    Now you may well enjoy your tractor and find the controls reasonable to use. I suspect, however, that you do not have much seat time in many different brands, nor many different types of equipment (ag and non-ag) and perhaps that is why some folks can easily see inferior design and others cannot. Truth be told, anyone can get used to anything, but that doesn't mean that what they get used to is as good as something else, it just means they get used to it. Sort of like a "three on the tree" manual transmission versus "4 on the floor" and now that is evolving to 6 speed paddle shifters. All 3 make the car go. Some are smoother, some are more responsive, some are faster to gear, etc. Not trying to lay down insults here, just trying to point out somethings are better than others.
    CityTransplant, You are just going to have to bite the bullet and realize that your tractor is of "inferior" design and get over it. Them FarmTracs are just no good and you should buy a kubota that everyone approves of and bury the ole' 270 in the field somewhere.

    This is a perfect example someone clearly overstating things without having full understanding. This is the type of post that leads to brand wars.

    Its unfortunate that we cannot simply state observations about features without getting feelings hurt. My observations were fact based, nothing more, nothing less. Its also obvious that a couple dealers of LG brands basically agreed with my observations and suggested that a newer series will resolve many of the issues I pointed out, and through that we've all remained civil.
