The 110 is a smaller machine. The L-39 Kubota is a better match and actually out performs the 110 in most areas of performance.

Yes the hoe comes off or you can buy it without the hoe as we did. We had no need for the hoe. The 3 point and PTO is just like any normal CUT. One thing that would be nice is telescoping arms for 3 point. Big tractor = big attachments= heavy to move to line up.

 L48 VS JD 110

The difference in the capacities of the two machines is minor. I own and run a 110 for work and have run an L48 but not as much. First impression is even thought the L48 is a little stronger, I think with the comford and agility of the 110, it would out work the L48.That is if you can keep it out of the shop. Lots of trouble in the beginning but it has been fine for the last 200 hours.
The 110 hoe removes easier, the bucket controll is very comfortable, you can lay your arm on the arm rest and run it with your wrist. The machine can be moved forward and back from the hoe seating position with the finger controls. The L48 you have to reach over and push on the foot pedal.The gauges and throttle setting are where they can be seen and reached on the 110 from bucket or hoe position. It was a well though out machine. The L48 is tough and a little more powerful in some areas. I think the L48 might last a little longer in severe use conditions. The 110 hoe will lift more while the L48 bucket will lift more then the 110.The 110 comes with quick connect loader bucket so all brand skid steer attachment fit right on. I would highly recomend running both machines at the dealers and really use them, not just run them and look them over. On the 110 run it in (A)gear and at about 2500 for the bucket work and 1600 for the hoe.Run the 110 like a skid steer, full speed reverse and hit the forward full speed, on dirt it will slide right around to the direction your steering. Light on the bucket controlls at that rpm. Here is a link that comares the specs. Read up on each machine at their sites for features they offer.

I think that was good summation of the 2. I will add that we ordered ours with no bucket or linkage and the dealer had ATI quick tach and bucket on from new, so it would fit all skid steer attachments. I don't know about the deere but kubota skipped the annoying safety switch in the seat, just something to rewire on other models if it is there. My john deere seat switch only lasted 2 weeks before it drove me crazy.

The 110 does have that G,D seat switch. In this cold weather I have to drive my knee into the seat a few times to soften it up and then if you hit a bump it still stops untill your butt warms the seat. What is the quickest, neatest safest way to by pass that thing? Unplug? Jumper wire? fuse? HELP??

Denwood, they do have that top and tilt for the 110, I have the regular 3pt but I bet it's nice. How do you like the 520 Kubota, I was reading up on it the other night, the specs are impresive. It take a pretty big Cat to match the lift and lift height.

I know 10 people will bitch about undoing the safety switch, but I took a 3" piece of fine guage wire, stripped 1/2 off each end, folded the stripped wire over the prongs of the plug, and plugged it back in. Done and neatly. I don't know about T&T for either machine. Only thing ever on it was a 6' bush hog. The R520 is in the top 2 finest pieces of machinery I have ever operated. The specs and abilities are seperb, and as strong as it is, it is just as gentle. Kubota hit such a home run that the new series came out and the biggest change I could see was the addition of a cup holder. It is so strong that the engine and 2000 lb counter weight are not enough. We threw on a 55Gal jug of water off the back and it still tips up with a pallet of solid concrete retaining wall. 5 cubic yard pallets of mulch are fine, as are anything esle we have. I routinely stick the forks with trees inside the back doors of vans and trucks. You can drive along with the wheels turning 1 rpm without uning the brakes. I have never used the brakes. It is hydrostatic, but at the same time hooked to the throttle.. As you push the pedal, it revs and accelerates. The hydro tranny automatically gears down while rpms stay high for force. It cannot stall and can spin wheels easily when pushing. Only complaint that I can't control(such as counter weight) is lack of limited slip axles. They did offer them on the R510, the previous series.

I will give that a try with the wires, something like a phone wire,or a fine multi strand. The 520 sounds even more impresive now. I see you can get a backhoe for it too but I think the perfect combo would be the 520 and a kx161 excavator when they put the tilt blade on it like they did the 121.When I have to load wheelers with the 110 I build a 1 foot dirt ramp and I can load them with 8'4" side boards. The 520 will clear over 8'4" with the bucket dumped. Thanks for your input and help.
