Had a M6030 with an ALO 620 loader from new. Put a new clutch in it at 4700 hrs. The clutch was 1400 + bearings, etc. This 6030 has a 5030 rear end(shuttle shift). It has never had any problems, always started when we needed it to. The 5030 will have a 6 cylinder engine rated at 2600rpm vs the 3 cylinder rated at 2400rpm in the 6030. Admittedly not a great field tractor, but no tractor in that hp range made in the last 20 years is. An ALO loader is preferable to a Kubota built one, and a later model tractor is obviously preferable, with the biggest difference being the seat and front rims. They are a VERY nimble tractor. Can get into some very small spots even with the loader on it. Not sure on the M5030, but with the 620 loader with a bucket on a M6030 with 24" tires, you can peel your front tires off, so if you get that tractor, be aware of that. Also know a guy that has a M8030. That thing has been to hell and back. He's replaced all of his tractors several times except the Kubota, which has been around 15+ years and still used daily. They're a very well built tractor that will outlast just about anything.
