Thinking about buying the LS brand? I have the XR 4046 with a front loader and for a short while loved everything about it BUT....... It now has 153 hrs and the clutch is out and won't move forward or backward. After doing some research and despite what the salesman will tell you, I find the warranty to be suspect. LS wants to blame you for the parts failing and says things like the clutch is a "wearable" part. Now I admit, one could ride a clutch pedal and cause this problem but this is NOT the case. Even if it was do you mean to tell me it will give out in 153 hrs? I've had Ford and Case backhoes with thousands of hrs on them and their clutches were fine. Wish you the best if you buy LS but I wish I had bought Kubota or New Holland or John Deere.
