 L5030 CUT?

Is the L5030 a compact? It seems rather diminutive in stature but at 52 gross HP over all could we classify it a compact?

 L5030 CUT?

Don't know. I think 'compact' may be mostly a marketing term to spice up the older idea of a utility tractor. At best the concept seems to be a fuzzy fit to operational ideas and I guess most anything could be called a compact tractor from some perspective.

Off the top of my head, a classification based on use is to the point and maybe one based on weight may be better than one based on HP. True that weight and HP tend to go hand in hand and so do weight and size. However, weight/size may be more important in determining how a tractor is used than HP. If I stuck with a HP idea, I think that a small tractor with a big engine would still be used more like a compact than a field tractor so maybe it makes sense to call them compacts.

I think to cover the chassis sizes which is what Kubota did just by making the largest horsepower in that size chassis. I would think yes as there might be a 4910 next year at 53 horsepower. It wouldnot be a 5000 size tractor chassis.

Well, it has my interest. Now if Art can just answer my other question. Do you think it can run the 7ft BH 287 cutter?

Go for it! For a lot of people that keep up with it a Bush Hog 84T could be an animal to! I would not want to be on hilly ground unless the rear tires were weighted and a loder was hanging off the front for ballast.
