Thanks for all the input. If Kioti had a 50hp NS in manual, I would be done. I also talked to two different Kubota dealers - 30 minutes and $6k apart on the L4802 not including the ldr or anything else. H&R Agri power has much better prices than Coleman. Two of my neighbors bought from there.

I decided to get the Kubota MX5400DT; it was only $1k more than a L4802 and about the same price as a Kioti NS6010. Now if I could only find a large hydraulic offset flail mower in stock somewhere. The Kioti dealer refused to sell me the implements when I decided not to buy their tractor.

What an immature way to handle business; imagine that Kubota doesn't work out, or maybe you've got another tractor purchase in the future, and they just threw that away.

You're in Tennessee, I'm guessing I know what dealer you went to; I wonder if it's their policy to kick folks to the curb on a tantrum, or if that salesman ought to just not have a job.

^^^ Similar story when I went new tractor shopping.

Ford dealer was the closest but I went Kubota.

Went back to the Ford dealer for tiller and post hole digger and the parts guy asked what it was for.

When I said Kubota he said he couldn't help me

The owner was walking buy and I said I was back to buy implements and the owner remembered me and confirmed since U didn't buy the tractor there he would not sell me implements...

Never went back and that 75 year old Ford dealer is no more.

Yeah, I was surprised. I was honest and told them about the tractor decision as soon as I came to it. Their prices on Kioti's have risen 20% since October 2022, which seems insane, and they didn't have a tractor that fit my needs exactly - I'm not crazy about getting an NX - knowing that they are discontinued (they offered a $500 discount when I asked about the end of NX's). I didn't feel like they really cared about the sale and weren't interested in dealing with me. Not that it really matters, but they weren't OG Tennesseans - all from up North (MI, MD, etc.) ....and treated me that way. I'm from northeast TN, but I went to a fancy college in Cambridge for grad school - and I treat everyone with respect - the golden rule is hard to beat. My truck needs some paint - so I guess they figured I was just kicking tires. I also went to JD in KY, just to see because my wife is a horse trainer, and we qualify for their 18% equine discount on MSRP..... I am still waiting on that quote for a 4052M (I went last Friday, and it's Wednesday).

H&R Agri Power in Russellville, KY, took care of me and made me feel welcome. My neighbor bought a Case tractor from them, and my other neighbor bought a Kubota zero turn. Those are solid recommendations. Two other neighbors have Kubotas from Coleman (one is a skid steer than H&R doesn't sell).

I was planning to buy 3-4 implements from that Kioti dealer, which would have cost over $10k in cash, but I'll take my business elsewhere.

The best price I have found on Ironcraft attachments/implements is Fairview Farm Center, LLC, in Pembroke, KY. They will be getting my business.

Sorry Charlie! My sour tone comes from being surrounded by snowbirds trying to be southern rednecks! Apologies!
