    Default kUBOTA L275

    I am looking at a L275, 4 wd with loader later this week. I presently have a JD 770, 2 wd without a loader. Any words of advice or things to look for on the 275 ? Does it have power steering ? Pros & cons ??

    I had an L175DT 17HP with front loader - the difference to the 275 being the 27 HP and frame size and possibly the loader. They didnt have power steering but there were add on kits - more like a power assist that could be installed.

    The L series are good solid tractors, but I would check the tires/wheel, mine were filled with calcium and rotted so had to weld patches and repaint. Also since gear drive check the clutch operation. Mine had the front mounted hydralic pump and needed to replace the drive coupling. Not sure if the 275 has a integral hyd pump or not. Check the front axle seals/drive assy for leaks if used hard with loader work these can seep.

    Overall if you intend to use this for loader work and have wide open spaces it should be fine, but if you intend to be operating in tight quarters with no power steering it can be a handful when you have a full load.. Also ballast for the rear 3PT hitch - these loaders can lift a lot so get rear blade or weight box if not they are tippy when loaded - just like me :-)

    I am also looking at a 1983 or so L275DT with front end loader and 850 hours, always stored inside, not shiny but looks great. Everything works as it shoud. He just used it to bush hog his fields. A kubota dealer offered the owner $6,000.00 for it. The owner said he'd sell it to me for the same $6,000.00 amount. He's an older retired guy who just wants a change of pace and a new Kubota. He's had it for 15 or so years. What is the difference between an L275 and a L275DT if any? It doesn't need a thing, except maybe change the fluids. Doesn't even have any tire cracks. What is the street value and was it a good tractor? Or should I divide the $6,000.00 into monthly payments into 6 years, add to the payment and get a new tractor?

    Frank.

    Thats a fair price for the unit and to get a new or nearly new one would be at least 3X or $18K range..

    The DT stands for Dual Traction or 4WD, and if this tractor doesnt have 4WD then the price is on the high side. L275 is 2 WD.

    If it comes with the bush hog then its an even better value.
