 Deere 790/4300 vs. Kubota L3010

I thought I was all set on a JD 790 or possibly 4300, but keep coming back to the L3010. Since I won't be doing too much loader work, hydro-drive doesn't mean that much to me. It appears that there are more complaints regarding the "green" (maybe just the 4000 series?)than the "orange". Any comments to help me would be appreciated. Both dealers are good, here, so that's not the issue.

 Deere-790/4300-vs.-Kubota-L3010

I looked at a L2500 and a b2100, went with the JD790.
The problems with JD are to do with the early introduction of the 4100 and tire scuffing and turf tearing. I also know of some other minor bugs they had to work out. The newer models(current model you would be looking at), have these problems taken care of, but the would have to be followed up by the owners of 4100's. The 790 has no problems that I can think of. In six months my only complaint has been a missing strap to keep the hydro hoses from rubbing the front tire, took all of three seconds to fix this.

Funny thing for me to say, but if I had the money to spend at the time, I would have gone with the largest Kubota I could get. I always wanted a Kubota, I wanted to get away from JD. However, opposite of what others say, when I should up at the Kubota dealer with money ready to buy, they had nothing to compare to the JD790 . No such animal in Kubota to compare to a 30hp machine with a Loader for 14k. The closest thing is a B2100 with a loaders, and I was looking at a little whimppy 17HP PTO, total turn off. A L2500 was nice, and you are looking at the L3010, even nicer but $$$!

I also think that you better check some issues of part aval. I heard something about the power steering being a problem spot with Kutbota, but from what I see on this board, haven't seen this confirmed.

I love my 790, not because it is green, but becuase it is one heavy, well built work horse, and the B2100 was a big machine for that little diesel.

Good luck.
