    Default Comparing G3038 to R3039

    Does anyone have any info about the real difference between the G3038 and R3039? Does the 4 cylinder vs 3 cylinder engine make much difference. The performance looks pretty similar.

    I bought the 3039H for three reasons:
    1. the Mitsubishi 4 cylinder engine ---- so quiet compared to the kubota 3 cylinder that I was used to
    2. remote hydraulics --- the G doesn't have
    3. the skid steer QA bucket --- the G doesn't have

    Remotes are not standard on 3038; but are an option
    FEL fitted to 3039 is a little stouter (lift capacity) than that on the 3038; 2250 lbs vs 1900 lbs
    I believe both are quick attach (skid steer type) bucket FEL
    G is classified as "value" compact and the price difference is notable
    There are other perks with the R series
