    Default Yanmar's TLB: CDL 40

    I was looking over some information from ten or 15 years ago and saw where I was considering buying Yanmar's mini-TLB model CDL 40. I didn't do so; bought kubota's M59 instead....a much larger machine.
    But I wonder if anyone does have a CDL 40 and if so, how is it doing? They sure looked like nice machines.

    One thing I learned from owning a design and repair shop with employees is that when you buy tools, the features are ALWAYS more important than the price. In my kind of shop, solid design and extra features that work well will pay for themselves quicker than cheaper tool that will do less. And the employees are noticibly more pround of their work when they are working with good tools. So for good tools, I'll pay more but also demand more for the money.

    In this case we looked at the Yanmar CDL 40, the kubota L47 and M59, the John Deere 110, Cat 416, JCB midi and also at several brands of 50/60 hp tractors that offered decent loaders with BH to fit their 3pt hitch mounts. Ended up with the Kubota.

    That JCB Midi Seemed like a stout machine. Did it feature a 3 Pt?
