 Tractor selection assistance

I am a homeowner with a little over 12 acres of land--mostly wooded. I'm wanting to buy a tractor for things such as mowing (finish mower), light grading, yard mainteneance, etc., and would like to find a tractor with a front end loader to suit my needs. I intend to purchase another 45 acres in the near future, and plan to use the tractor to landscape various areas of the property. What type and size of tractor would most likely suit my needs? I want enough power, but at the same time don't want to spend the money for *too* much tractor. Thanks!

I would recommend 25-40 HP. Check out the mahindra, Kioti, Branson,Century tractors. South Korean tractors with a good reputation and about 25% less than the green/blue/orange ones.

I think you will need at least 30 hp for what you will use your tractor for.

Where do I shop for these tractors? I live in western NC near Asheville, but am only familiar with John Deere, Massey and New Holland dealers. Also, in truth, is their dependability as good as the others or close to it? I certainly would like a 25% savings, but if it will be in a state of disrepair often I'd rather pay for a "local" tractor. Also, if they break down, what tractor companies will honor the warranty and make the necessary repairs? Thanks!

Slowrev is right, The Korean makes are a great deal and very worthwhile looking into. If you want a Hydro, you must stay with the traditionnal JH, NH, Kubota, Massey. Then the price difference becomes even greater. Because of all the corporate intermingling, the makers of Century/Branson make JD's in Korea and also make Cummins engines. The 4 cyl C/B use the same engine as a JD4710 for about $6000 less. Any website has a dealer locator, there should be a good selection near you. If you have trouble finding a site, contact me by eMail and I will send you all the URL's

hi,i've been looking at tractors too.one important thing to remember is a good dealer as well as money.a good dealer is very important as your tractor will need things at some point.also i would go and sit on and drive different models,i have eliminated some just by sitting on them,just don't fit me good.another thing about the hydro,it seems like the hydro is the way to go for tight spots and lots of back and forth work like loader work.just my thoughts as i am getting closer to a final winner.

4310/4410 with a 430 loader & 72 in. belly mower. Maybe a MX5 or a Landpride 2660.

When you say "hydro", do you mean a hydrostatic transmission (automatic?). What are the big advantages and disadvantages of this versus a maual shift or shift on the go tranny? As for the Korean tractors, is there on inparticular that seems best?

By the way--thanks for everyone's input on this and the New Holland message areas.

A few months back I stopped by a JD dealership and looked at the 790 and 990. Any drawbacks to these tractors? The 990 (I think) has 30 PTO HP and I was quoted a price with a FEL and 4WD of around $16,500. Is that high/low, etc?

One bad thing about these tractors--finding prices to compare! The Kioti seems every bit as expensive as some of the JD and NH models I've looked at, and I just can't find pricing at all on the Century and Branson (I even looked on the machinerylink web page). The Mahindra seems very reasonably priced, but I can't find new model pricing. Anyone seen pricing for the 3510? It's the 35 HP 4WD model. Speaking of which, I've been told I *definitely* need 4WD if I get a FEL--does this sound like good advice?

And again--thanks for everyone's input and assistance.

As a JD salesman, I try to steer people away from the 790. It's a good reliable tractor, no doubt, But just for giggles, price a 4210 with the std 9/3 trans.

You will find, for very few more dollars, you are getting some things worth mentioning.

* A folding ROPS
* Better Hyd Capacity in every category
* More ergonomic oporator's station
* The 4210 is matched with the 420 loader
( The 420 is twice the loader as a 70, and still much
better than the new 419, check out the specs for
yourself)
* The 4210 has a LIVE pto, not a 2 stage clutch like the
790
* The 4210 has a larger fuel tank
* You will not notice the lesser HP of the 4210 compared
to the 790, really, you won't. The 4210 has a std 9/3
trans. the 790 has an 8/2. Better gear selection will make
up for the less power...easily.
* The 9/3 trans on the 4210, is sycronized. It will
shift much smother than the 790.
* The 4210 can be equiped with up to 5 hyd circiuts.
* The 790 has external brakes, if you are oporating in a
dirty or wet enviroment, these will require more maint.
than the enclosed brakes on a 4210.

Add all these things up and see what you think. Also, check it out against some of the other brands and models listed in this post. You will soon see what I am talking about.
