Hey bluegill2, How is the L3800 working for you? I've looked at one two times now and other model tractors in same hp range and I'm liking the Kubota the best right now. Two different dealers are quoting different $ amt for the same tractor. It is plain jane gear drive with quick detach loader. Naturally the lower price one is about 100 miles farther away. If I bought from the distant dealer I wonder if the closer guy would honor warranty work?Thanks for the welcome.
Yeah, I'm guilty too. From now on I'm in 2wd unless 4wd is needed.
Also, the loader comes off during mowing season, that's a lot of extra weight on the front end. This extra weight added to the wear of the front axle pivot mounts and the added slop contributed to the drive line failure.
