    I can totally be wrong about the HST+. I test drove it right after getting off of a new 4240 HST and I noticed it did not have the H-DS lever. I was thinking that was a feature that doesn't exist on the standard HST on the MX and the standard L's, so I thought that may be what this model had. Maybe those features were just implemented in a different way on the older models?

    Could be, I have never been in one of the early models. The L40 was introduced in 2007, here is the announcement.
