    Default What does the F stand for in the M5040F

    I am curious as to if this is suppose to be a fruit tractor for use in orchards and such. I went to kubota.com but can't find anything about this model. I am curious as to the narrowest width the tractor can narrow down to. I am always looking for decent used tractors to use in the vineyard and until recently have not paid much attention to Kubota.

    Neil, if you guys get any used vineyard tractors in there can you think of me and let me know. I'm still looking for an open station narrow tractor that I can mount the post pounder on. I doubt I can justify another new tractor anytime soon but I am still thinking of a L4400 but if I can find a decent vineyard tractor used that would be ideal. There was a JD 5425N open station tractor with 600 hours on it that just sold for $8750 at an auction this month that would have been ideal but we still hadn't closed on the new farm so I couldn't buy it then have the deal fall through.

    So anything with Orange or Green paint on it would work well for me.
