    Default GL Electrical problems?

    I am just inquiring about the GL**40 series with all of it's electronic gadgetry if any of it has been problematic. There seems to be quite a bit of it compared to the GL**30 which have only the dash. The 40's have been out for enough years for common problems to show up.

    i've never seen or heard of an electronics problem on a GL40, or GL30 for that matter. The dash computer is designed the same way.

    The GL 40 has a bit more to it for electrical doesn't it? I though the 40 series high-low and stall prevention were electronic.

    Well, I'll take it as a good sign that nobody is posting here.

    One of my favorite ways to check reliability on a model while I was shopping used was to search thread titles in the brand's forum. If the majority of the threads were "fill in tractor part/function here) doesn't work" on the model, then I knew to stay away.

    Not too much of that on most Kubotas.
