    No Kubota loaders?

    Happened to reach a salesman when I called for parts;asked about inventory and he said he had a few 50 HP tractors but no loaders(FELs) for them and didn't know when they would be available.Like everything else;hard to come by.

    Snow plow on FEL

    Depends on how big the plow is:L2250 is fairly small so no bigger than six ft.? I have had one for ten years(8') on a larger L4240 (7K) with no problems;third function for the angle.As long as the plow has a trip it will not hurt the FEL.

    Cheaper(yes) as effective (I don't want to try).As often as the normal home-owner type would change fluids and filters;why risk it.
