I am 55 and my bros and I row crop and raise cattle and my my son and I are general contractors and the largest hardscape contractor in our immediate area. My father bought the first Kubota in our area in 1973 a little L175 and and am patching up a B7100 hst to trade for another Deere. We have owned each color out there and our deeres wind up the cheapest to OPERATE over the long haul even though they are somewhat more expensive in the beginning. We paid about 21.5 for a 4105 and loader 2 yrs ago and we use it in the winter to feed 5X6 round bales in the winter and on the jobsite in the work season it now has just shy of 400 hrs on it and won't be 2 until april. We run our equipment as long as it is not a problem and have 4240 w/10k+ AND 8640 W/8800. so our deeres have been good to us.

I have 3 Kubotas
A B-26 that I use for landscaping jobs,it has a 4 in 1 bucket and a backhoe. the back hoe comes off easily for 3 pt implements.
L 4400-I use this tractor mostly for turf type work since I have turf tires in it and some bushhogging

Grand L 4240-this tractor has all the bells and whisles including a cab(a/c,heat),is equiped with a loader for snow removal(we hardly have winter here much less much snow but.....)but I usually use this tractor for bush hogging(the loader comes off quickly)

I also have a Takeuchi 140 with A/C,heat
