    Default fel 482 or 481

    i am having to choose between between two new loaders from kubota the older version 481 or the newer version 482.
    it will be mounted on an up and coming l-3010.

    i know their are some mounting and control differences.whith regards to what stays with the tractor.

    anyone want to give their 2 cents.pro's and con's. and why i should spend $500 more for the 482.

    thanks... wade

    Flipado,

    I think I spoke about this before, to you in fact. Basically, you need to determine if you have a need for the controls and power beyond circuite when the loader is not attached. If the loader is the only thing you envision runnning, save your $500. If you see other front or belly mount attachments in your future, when the loader is not installed, then you might want the controls still on the tractor. Look at your own uses and see if it's worth the $500 for the option. It's not to me, but I wasn't given the choice.
