    You will be very happy with that unit. We have an older model in that hp range with a loader and it is my favorit tractor to mow with.
    Just a heads up if that unit has a filter screen infront of the radiator get practiced up on removing the screen and cleaning it off. When mowing in tall stuff when the seads are dry the filter screen will cover over and can cause it to get hot and the temp alarm to go off. Our 55 hp does not have this screen but the 45 hp one we have does.

    Those screens will cause a over heating right quick like. We usually keep a leaf blower handy when hogging and mowing hay. Nice lookin tractor by the way..enjoy it. Never know how much you could use one until you have one

    That is nice! When you get the front end loader, keep the front tires pumped up good. I was putting out a hay bale and slipped a front tire off the rim. What should have been a 10 minute job turned out to be substantially longer.

    Great tractor! And I've had my Woods batwing for around 20 years....it's a great machine too.

    Perhaps you already know, but make sure you power down before you engage the PTO on the bat wing. And don't engage the PTO in waist high fescue. PTO clutches are not cheap....

    Kubotas are tough tractors, at least the ones I've used.

    Congrats on the tractor.

    I probably won’t bite the bullet this year but I’m in need of a compact tractor that I can haul relatively easy to the farm for mowing and food plot work.

    Been looking at the JD 3038e or maybe a 3035d... which the D series is a new line-up Deere came out with this year. It’s got a manual H/L 8 speed with shuttle shift and is about 400lbs heavier.... which the manual of the “d” series vs hydrostatic of the “e” series honestly appeals to me. Guess I’m just use to the old 2010 we had.

    Also haven’t ruled out the Kubota L3901. It will just boil down to who gives me the best deal... green or orange.. don’t matter too much to me.

    John Deere E series.
    I have a 5055e and i would advise NOT to get one. The E series has the exhaust regeneration filter in the exhaust pipe and they are problems. When it decides to "regen" it gets hotter than blazes and you must not shut it off till it completes cycle.
    Several have caught fire doing this and JD recommends using Road diesel fuel which is pricer than farm grade. And it Loves diesel. SOB uses more than my 100 hp tractor. A new filter is about 5,000 dollars, and the way the computer is set up it takes a genius to remove it and still get the engine to run.
    I would never buy one again, go with the DEF fluid system.

    I have a Kubota 3901 and Kubota 5040 dually. Love both of em. 5040 is a workhorse but the dually makes it a lil tougher in some places. I could take em off but a couple fields I have to have em so they stay. 3901 has a regen system too. You can put it off when it wants to regen, but you should do it fairly soon after it needs it. The 3901 is a great size, tows easy and gets the job done. Your not gonna lift 2k # with it but for it's size I like it. If doing it again I may have gone with the 4701. Buddy bought a LS 45 or 47hp and really likes it too JD, you may want to look at them too.
