    I got my new L3130 last week and I went with the LA723 with quick attach option. I figured that it was the best fit for the uses I plan. If you get the standard bucket get a toothbar from Markham Welding but it wont work with the HD bucket.

    With the LA 723 you get a 4 bar linkage on the bucket. That gives a greater dump/rollback angles.

    Hi...


    The LA723 sticks out further from the tractor and weighs more...
    I recall the LA723 has better/stronger specs too...

    I find the quick attach option excellent !
    Putting the bucket/implement off/on is a breeze...

    Another advantage of the quick attach is that you can leave the bucket off to mow, shortening the overall lenght and improving the forward visibility.

    If you change tools on the front, the QA is the only way to go. I do not, I don't have it. If I thought I would do so down the road, I certainly would have ordered it.

    I find removing the LA 723 so easy that I typically remove and replace it at least 2 or 3 times a week. It's off in about 27 seconds, on in about 93 seconds.

    Rules of thumb...???... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    You want the biggest, strongest tractor you can get that makes sense for the use/propertyyou have...

    You want the strongest loader that is offered for that tractor...

    You want the largest backhoe, which really mens you get more reach...you always seem to want more reach...

    You want as many different implements as you can get...they all do something better than the others...

    You want an understanding wife...who supports you and your tractor needs...but who is not too interested in tractors...thereby you avoild the threat of lost seat time... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Get the stronger loader. You will thank yourself later...expecially if you decide to buy a BH90 backhoe, which it seems will not work with the 513 loader...
