You may also want to look at a New Holland. Just purchased a new Holland tc55da and love it. Has electric hyraulic shuttle and fwd. The kubota is nicer to shift than the small deere. I prefer the large deere tractors over other brands but prefer the kubota or NH in the smaller ones. IOWA
Forgot to mention that Kubota has interest free plans and there prices are very good,there MX5000DT has MFD(4X4)
Having owned both J.D. and Kubota tractors and currently do i find the Kubota is an exstreamly tought built to last and minor problems if any,i would look at the Kubota MX5000 ,with 4x4,w/a monster front loader,and be assured it will still be running and any parts available in 2oyrs or more,kubota makes all there own parts,not J D
