A loader is almost $7K I can buy a lot of beer with $7K.
I use a carry-all on the back the most, the loader would be handy BUT… it uses up heaps of space & gets in the way most of the time, this is primarily a mower & secondarily a 4wd vehicle for planting trees.
I can get the carry-all on & off in less than 2 minutes.
BIL is a big John Deere user & got me a good price.
He travels the world with JD & they call him for ideas & advice.
To many things on the Kubota break far too often, I lose weeks at a time every year fixing the f’n thing & the parts are as dear as poison.
Doesn’t need wheels on the top, you don’t need wheels while you are parked… the mirrors have to go 'cos that’ll stick in the mud.
So what’s the primary tree planter.
Around here orange is favoured as parts are cheaper than JD and the cockies say they don’t break as often although JD is favoured for the big bastards along with a few Euro brands.
I believe the JD mower is easy to attach, SWMBO uses a mower at work and says it is the best mower they have had, cleaner cut than others of comparable size.
$7k for a loader, shite!!!
I know mine is smaller but I think it was about $4k for the 4 in 1.
Yes, when I brush past mine the lenses come off, there is not much clearance in the shed and it happens almost every time I park it when I get off and walk out.
That is one item they could have designed a lot better, plus I never use them.
If you don’t use them, how do the horse know which way you are turning. Inconsiderate bastard.
Plus, that is a f’n lot of walking to do following the bloody thing around… I’d rather be riding on it… the new one has a beer holder, the old one had one but it got smashed off several years ago.
