    Default LA1153 Loader Options

    I am considering buying an M6040 with LA1153 loader. There are several options for the loader:
    1) hydraulic self-leveling valve
    2) shockless ride
    3) 3rd function valve

    If my dealer is correct (big if ), option 1 can only be ordered from new, while options 2 and 3 can be added later if required. Can anyone confirm if this is correct?

    Thanks for your help.

    The third function valve, for sure. I had it done when my kubota was about one year old. It was about $300.

    Thanks Wolfy.

    I would like to buy a grapple bucket when $$$ permit, so I can put off spending money on the 3rd function valve as well.

    If you will do much loader work, the leveling valve will be a nice feature. It's a completely different control valve so ordering it initially is the way to go. I agree with others that buying your extra remotes etc. now is the best option, if you know what you want/need. They'll be better-integrated into the tractor's plumbing than later add-ons would be.
