 JD4310 vs Kubota L3430

Guys,

Need a bit of advise, I owned and sold a 4310 with 430 loader and 48hoe. I really liked the unit. I had the following issues:

Tilt wheel broke-fix out PIP, changed plastic for metal sleeve

Hoe would not lift all the way into position-after four trips to the dealer they got it to work without the stabilizer lifting the extra 1/4 in

Leak in rear-I really dont knoww what they did but they fixed it

Loader joystick kinda sticky

hose to backhoe needed straight fitting, could not get it under the seat to plug in so they rerouted it

Seat frame bent-they replaced

All of these issues , were corrected. I ended up selling because I felt it was too big. I went to get a smaller unit, 4115 but now feel the 4310 was the right size, for the extra 6K its a piece I coiuld do some real work with

Now the issue, Consider I had some issues with the deere, all corrected but issues no the less. I strated to look at the Kubota, the new line is appealing. I like the all metal vs the plastic of the deere. A crak in the floor of the deere could be a real issue. While I never had an issue with the ehydor and electronics on the deere some posts scare me.

I feel the deere has a higher resale, and likly has some better user features. But now am torn on which way to go

Suggestions??

Comparing it to the 3430, same price points
