    BUY BUY BUY. This side of the border that'll run you 60,000. That's when the 0% for 60 really helps :cool:.
    p.s. you'll love the tractor!

    I just picked one up last fall but as 1TN said they cost a lot more north of the border.

    Appreciate the feedback. I got two other quotes from Online vendors in different states and they were both about $500 more for just the tractor, plus another $500 or so for shipping, so I'm going with the local guy.

    I am trying to buy this same tractor but am having no luck with decent pricing. The pricing I got was double what you got. I'd like to get the information that you did but I live in Michigan not SC... Can you call me at my toll free office number so I can find out where you got this pricing from etc.... Thank you Mike Rashid, Rashid Doors 888-353-8881

    I would lean toward landpride on the mowers?

    just yesterday quoted a 5740 cab and loader,, Here in New England area they are all at 40-42 pretty much regardless what dealer you call.. I have two different people to buy my L48, both with the same numbers. The next one will be the 5740 however I looked at a cabbed D60 Case and with loader and third valve was considerably cheaper than Kubota... Makes me think now...

    Lawnking, no. Obviously the L48 is also HST, but prior to the new models. I know guys with the new system who say the same as you.. My problem is buying,.. We're not talking a few hundred or even a few thousand dollars diiferent. We're talking many more thousands and this does raise a concern.
