    Anybody using a Kubota L39? I did a search and found several of you using the L48, but nobody with an L39. I looked at both the L39 and L48 today. The dealer quoted me around $36,000 OTD for a brand new L39 with 4 in 1 bucket. They also had an L48 that was a demo with 19 hours on it. They quoted me $40,000 OTD with a 4 in 1 bucket.... How does this sound to you guys?

    I think since I will be trying to get part time work at first for my new business that a tractor like the L39 or L48 would be a good choice since I can offer loader/backhoe services, bush hogging, post hole digging all with one machine. Any opinions on this approach?

    The L48 is a hoss. Somewhat depends on what you are going to haul this with. But based on your signature there the F350 will handle it. I would go with the L48 if the financing options were the same for both.
