 Any comments on Grand L cab tractors??

I am considering trading/selling my L3010HST and buying a
L4330 or L5030 with cab. My dealer says this is a $5500.00
option. I do a lot of winter work and could sure use the
cab features. Does anyone out there have a cab model and wish to comment??

Seems like an aftermarket cab would be about half the price of that Kubota option. Curtis and Sims cabs have gotten good reviews. The factory cabs are probably best, but you can't sneeze at saving a few thousand $$$.

Check your visibility! It's a big plus the rest isjust a better enclosure for winter including a better floor covering as well as extra heat in the windows for defrosting. The air conditioning is a nice addition on hot days. It really is a good value and we do have people move up to it from the curtis and sims cabs.

The one I looked at is a very impressive set up. And that 5500 has alot of the bells and whistles you have to add in for a aftermarket. The a/c would cost a bundle.

My only "concern", HOW MUCH IS THE REPLACEMENT GLASS?

Other than that and the local dealer, here, that would be the way to go. There is nothing like factory designed and fit.

JD needs to build one and soon.

 Any comments on Grand L cab tractors??

I agree with Art, the difference in quality and features plus the fantastic visibilty is worth every penny IMHO.

I had a L3450GST at the house for personal use on top of the fleet at work, then last year for health reasons replaced it with an L4310HSTC (pic. 11 & 12), the air conditioning was a must before I was allowed any seat time again.

They obviously spent a lot of time on the design and engineering, the comfort factor is high, I have never had a machine which was so suited to winter work, all the glass behind the doors is electrically defrosted, wiper on rear window, both doors are washed from overhead vents as well as seperate bank for the front windshield and two more for the operator. A/C is independantly controlled by a switch so it can be used in the winter as a de-humidifier feature to really kill fog-causing moisture in the cab.

Sound proofing is incredible, I don't think the sound level in the cab with the engine running at pto speed is much above that of my truck, the stereo is a real nice touch. I also use a two-way radio system and being able to carry on a normal coversation with the machine working is a real handy thing.

I was so impressed I bought a few more for the company, see my pic. # 6.....

I don't regret the expense one little bit.

Best of luck.

I have not looked at the Grand L yet, but did look at the Kioti DK55 with cab. It is also a nice unit but I am not sure exactly how the cab compares to the options that Murf listed. I think you could get a DK55 with cab for the 24K range if it gives you some comparison. It is a heavier tractor though.

A/C would be nice, but OHIOFARMER probably won't use it much for winter work. No doubt he'd appreciate it in those hot and humid ohio summers though.

Seems like my defrosters work alot better with the a/c compressor switch on. My newer vehicles the a/c compressor is auto matic with defrost.

I can not see a downside to the a/c compressor summer or winter.

Is the air intake for the cab filtered?

Defrosting works better with the A/C compressor on to provide dehumidification, but not sure if the Kubota cab works that way. A good thing to check methinks.
