    I recently bought a used RTV900 40% cheaper than equivalent units on the market. Sometimes a good deal is being in the right place at the right time. I would make the trip to check it out at the very least.

    Even though they have the basic same engine and similar appearance, the L4240 is considerably more tractor than the L4600. More hydraulic capacity, way more lifting capacity on the 3 pt, 400 lbs heavier, much stronger FEL. It also has the HST+ transmission, which is generally considered the best in the market. People sometimes get distracted by the Grand L's being "deluxe" tractors and assume the only differences vs the standard models involve creature comfort and frills. Up to you whether additional capability would have value for your situation; for me the larger FEL (mine is similar but older) has been a big plus. Good idea looking at each to decide which is the better choice. Ain't tractor buying fun?

    What Grandad4 said, we looked at the regular L Series before looking at the Grand L and once we saw the Grand L, there was no question you get more than just "nice" features in the Grand L. The MX5100 is also worth consideration though it doesn't have the HST+. I was honestly a little skeptical about the utility of the HST+ until I used one.
