 Kubota L4200

Iím looking at buying a 1994 Kubota L4200 W/1800 hrs. on it. Itís four wheel drive has a HD loaderand R4 tires at about 60%. Additionally, it has a Glide Shift Transmission, and a heated Simms Cab. 1. I am wondering if there is anything in particular that I should look at on that model (potential problems).2. What is a fair price for this Tractor?3. Should I consider new tires or do the R4 ind. Tires have good traction for hilly wet terrian(northeast winter)?Thanks gbr

 L4200gst/added cab/R4s

interesting, not many like this one mentioned. The tractor with 1800 hrs after 5 years use is not bad at all. The R4 tires are a "major plus" unless you are a "row cropping" farmer. If "HD" loader means Kubota model LA680, that's good.The Glideshift trans. is "the best" one available. The "add on cab" hurts value compared to the factory type cabs w/ac and two remote hydr. control valves as std. equip. that were available on L4200gst 4wd models. The availibilty of the loader control JOYSTICK valve inside the Sims cab may be an issue you need to check carefully. The Kubota designed cab and loader control valve is very neat and easy to reach/use, without taking up valuable cab space. Caution in shopping is needed when testing the transmission shifting through the different speeds and fwd/rev hydr shuttle. If the tractor was used as a HD working industrial unit --- the reason for selling now -- maybe a hidden problem or agenda. Make sure it doesn't hestitate too long between speeds or direction. If it does, have an experienced Kubota mechanic advise you. I'd suggest a rental or real good demo (with load and warm up time) before purchasing. Or get a power train warrranty that will last you through the summer. The cosmetic appeal (looks) of the tractor will be very important in its value and will give you a good feel if the unit was "abused" or "babied". If warranty is not an option --- SHOP and BARGAIN very carefully.You'll want to compare it, " price wise", to other L4200gst w/factory cabs (AND A/C) The air conditioning is a very important factor in many ares and the tractors that have it SELL/and/SHIP all over the country. Therefore, the extra value pays a dividend even for "cold country" buyers when they resale or trade-in the used tractors.FLIP SIDE-Sometimes folks DO NOT get the factory cab because it usally cannot be used with a three point hitch type backhoe. The Sims cab, here, maybe a result of this factor and may play into your planning as a PLUS instead of a negative.good luck, keep us posted
