Inadvertent Find---Love It Posted by Clayton on 05/05/2013

I had my heart set on Kubota, decided on the L3800, but local dealer really got me mad when wouldn't bother to give me a price with trade. Said he'd call on Monday. On Saturday wandered into Deere dealer, found my 4005, and bought it.

This thing has not failed to do anything I've asked it, from mowing grass and brush, to plowing, spreading gravel and repairing roads, plowing snow, and running post hole digger. Once I got used to controls it became automatic and natural. I really like the geared transmission, since I just don't get the hang of the hydro statics. Just watch your speed if you put the clutch in on a hill.

Only quibble is that FEL hydraulics (300CX) could have better lift capacity.

Overall, I love this machine and will have it till I die!
