Going to purchase a big brother for my B2650. Any chronic problems or dislikes with your L6060? Thanks...

I don't own one, but I'm curious, what steered you to the L6060 over the MXX60s?

I am down sizing from a NH T4.75 so weight and maneuverability are a big consideration. The T4.75 weighs 2,000 pounds more than the L6060 yet only 15 HP difference roughly. We have a 15 acre orchard and even with limbs trimmed I need something over 50 HP but with a smaller foot print. The T4.75 was great at our place in the East Texas Piney Woods but I just sold that property and need something smaller. I also like the bells and whistles on the L6060.....:)

Not the L6060, but my L4060 has been problem free for 350 hours or so. The HST on the 60 series Kubotas is really nice.

They are nice bells, aren't they? I only drove the L3560 a bit before putting in the order. Only bad thing I've heard about the L6060 is that it's light for its HP, and prone to spinning a tire instead of digging in.

I will be filling the rear wheels with water just like every other tractor I have so no problems there. We have lived on our place for 50 years this year so all the huge projects that wear out machinery is long over. Tractors here live the good life!

Lots of features.

Third function hoses are vulnerable to damage.

Adjustable stop for position control lever is useless.

Likes fuel.

Cannot mount front weight bracket and grill guard simultaneously.

Vice grips? :)

NO.

I made my own. It functions but leaves much to be desired.

How do you like the B2650? I sat in a cabbed one before I went with the L3560, and test drove an open station one way back before I bought the L3301, and I felt really cramped both times. I am a large(fat) guy though. What really spooked me was how tippy it felt when turning. Didn't feel like it had enough weight down low. Then again, I'm in "the rolling hills" and your picture looks postcard flat.
