The more swag a brand has, the more that brand seems to cost....
Just look at Kubota, New Holland, deere... All shwagg heavy, deere being in the lead for that is my guess, and deere reflects the most you would prolly pay pound for pound of tractor.
I bought a 790 Deere brand new 15 years ago. They matched the Kubota dealers price on comparable hp tractor without me saying a thing and in that silence I had after the manager said he would match the Kubota price, it was followed by 'l'll fill the rears no extra also'... That dealer was the best. Was in business for close to 60 years, owner sold to a chain of Deere dealers, most of the original employees quit after the buy out and is not the same anymore.
Anyhow, the deere was just north of three grand more than the kubota. Back then Kubota was JUST getting into there swag. Unlike Deere who was deep in the business of swag for home, garden, office and play.
I believe that is one reason LS is priced the way they are. You are paying for just the product, not all the advertisement swag to be given away.
When I bought the XR3140, the only extra I got was a shop manual download I had to provide the thumb drive for. But felt I got a good tractor with bells and whistles for a fair price.
