How about a John Deere 110 TLB

In the market for a new compact TLB. Looking at the JD 110 TLB. From what I gathered, its not that popular of a machine. Every forum I've been to its all Kubota... Kubota... I think, the 110 is alot more beefier than any Kubota i've seen incl L48,L39. Does anyone currently own or operate a 110. Any suggestions ?
By the way got a 2001 JD 4700 for sale 1700hrs

I've got a Kubota L48 and its pretty heavy duty. A lot of guys run orange around here for TLB's, not too much green, cause there is only one dealer and he doesn't deal with the TLB's, just the glorified garden tractors. My uncle had a JD 737? I don't know the model number, but he upgraded to an L35 after a year with the JD cause it wasn't up to his standards (this coming from a JD die-hard. He's got a 4 or 5 antiques he's redone).

I'm running green now, but i want to switch to yellow. Its not a big difference between the colors. the green and yellow are the same tractor except that the 110 has the loader built into the machine vs the greens attachment. All the Kubotas are the same way... attachments. Thats why I kinda favor the yellow more, also if you look closely at the backhoe its a bit heavier on the yellow than the green plus it has more oil flow and greater psi. The green that i have now moved mountains and still runs strong 1700hrs later

The loaders & backhoes are removable on all the Kubotas as far as I know.

It really comes down to personal preference as almost all the machines now are similar in capacities if you take the time to compare apples to apples. Hell even the Kioti's are putting up impressive numbers. I've got about 375hrs on my L48 and (bought with 300hrs). I've been impressed with the lift cap. of both the loader and the backhoe so far.

to be honest thats the only thing that puts a frown on my face is the lift capacity on the 110 which is exceeded by the L48 by about 500 lbs.

hold on....the loader on the l39 and l48 are fixed. they do not come off.

also the jd110 compares to the l48 not the l39. personally i like the bota but you cannot get a factory cab like you can with the 110.

i think you should look at the jcb 210 which is only slightly heavier but will run ringds around both of these machines.

hmm I thought the L48 did have a removable loader. evidently not though. "loader-integrated reinforced frame"

FYI, the specs of the tractor can be found here. http://kubota.com/f/products/l48_Specs.pdf

I bought my 110 the first year they came out and I couldn't be happier. I do run all Deere equipment, but I can honestly say nothing about this machine has been a let-down. Very well built, plenty of power, and with the three point kit, I can run any rear mounted implement I want. I'm at about 800 hours and have had zero problems. None.

As far as the factory cab... I'm pretty sure Deere doesn't offer one from the factory....yet. They are building a couple of different compact utilities with factory cabs w/air & heat. My dealer says the 110's are due for some improvements very soon as they have remained unchanged since they came out in 2002. Perhaps a factory cab option is coming? And a turbo-ed engine? The aftermarket cabs are nice ($5-6k), but they do not have the sound deadening qualities that the factory cabs do. They are just plain noisy inside.

I don't think you can go wrong with the 110. Have you got different dealers nearby that would let you demo the Deere, Kubota, etc...? If you're gonna spend $40,000 it'd be nice to get the feel of each machine. You be the judge.

I ran one one for a bit at a dealer just when it came out in 02. But hadn't sat on one since. I was getting numbers from dealers and one of them spilled the beans and told me that 100% its getting a new engine because of the wacko green people (emissions). Thats the only thing he knows of for sure. Its due out if I can recall correctly, the 5th of march.

Kubota for now. Kubota L39 loader is not a quick detach if that is what you mean. I think the Kubotas turn a little tighter but the clincher for me is the Hydro on the Deere and no cruise control. I prefer the shuttle shift trans of the Kubota. I also use mine like a small farm tractor a lot. No cruise control ( don't laugh New Holland Boomers have it!) with a hydro cramp the hell out of my leg after 4+ hours straight of planting or disking. It makes for a long 10 or 12 hour day. I don't think you can go wrong with either tho. Both are rock solid machines.

A company i worked for in 2005 bought a 110 with an aftermarket cab. Great piece of equipment, awesome digging power on the hoe and the loader would lift 3000lbs without a flinch. The only complaint I had was the aftermarket cab, it was loud, and cold, and was about 8' tall, so it was the stupidest looking thing in the world. If they have a factory cab available for it then it's greatly improved. Super strong transmission, and a ton of hydraulic power. Haven't tried the Kubota, other than the B21, but I'm sure they are good, as with most Kubota stuff, but I'd still buy the Deere.

Thinking of trading in my track loader CT322 for a 110. Thooughts? Thinking of doing that to handle my work load a little easier. I would like to hear how well they push snow and what is the biggest size high capacity snow bucket I can put on it?

what kind of work do you do the rest of the year?

i would think you could put a 1yard snow bucket and 8 foot pusher on it. they are much lighter then what you have.

I would use it for the small excavating projects where I now have to take the CT322 and Mini Excavator to the job would be nice to only take one machine on my 20' trailer instead of haing to drag the backhoe trailer with both of the machines on it. They weigh about 17000 pounds together! The CT322 is not a 7500 pound machine when scaled it weighs 10500! Pretty heavy for a pickup! So it usally gets dragged to the job with the dump truck.

I found an '06 model but could care less... 7 hrs on it, its a brand new machine and the price on it was 35.5 it comes fully equipped with all auxilary hydraulics, HD bucket with the edge, quick coupler on the hoe. The paperwork is going through now. Only thing i gotta figure out is how I'm gonna move this machine to mass... To be honest, a small machine like that with 1200 hrs has seen some work. It also depends on how often you use it and what for. I buy my machines new because thats my bread. If I lose a day on down time, I'm out a G. The cost to fix is usually at least a days pay and don't forget you don't work that day either. As far as snow plowing, I don't do it so I don't know.
