    Kubota L3800

    Default New guy needs help to buy a Kubota L3800HST

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new to the site and excited to participate

    I want to buy a new kubota L3800HST with the following options:

    R4 tires
    Cruise Control
    Canopy
    LA524 loader w/66' quick coupler bucket
    LP BB1260 Scraper

    What is a fair price to pay for the above?

    Thanks in advance for the advice!

    I'd say $20K OTD is a good starting point.

    Go to kubotas website and us the "build my kubota" function and see what the MSRP is with those options. Then add whatever the BB is, and take about 10-15% off

    Not sure how much reading you've done on this site but sometime the L3800 (and others like it) might have a jerky hitch. Have the dealer put an implement like a box blade on the 3ph and try raising it up very slowly. Might show up better on one without the FEL.

    Down is no problem since it's just gravity... you can search for Jerky Hitches but before you buy, try it out. IF it's jerky the dealer should be able to correct (adjust) the problem.

    FYI I paid about 30K in July for the L3800 HST w/ loaded R4's, 66" quick release FEL bucket w/ hooks and toothbar, chipper, 6' brushhog and BH77. Highly recommend the bolt-on toothbar.
