 4110 vs B7500

Iíve shadowed this group for some time now and learned a lot. Now I need to make a decision. Iím looking between a JD 4110 with 410 loader and a Kubota B7500 with loader. Both are hydros. The quotes that Iíve received from local dealers here in Battle Ground, WA are $15,450 for the Deere and $15,000 for the Kubota (price includes the loader, calcium and a 3pt grooming mower for both).

The question now is which is the better tractor for the money? From what Iíve heard and seen, both dealers are excellent. The Kubota is cheaper, has more total horsepower and better financing and standard warrantee. The John Deere appears to have a more powerful loader and better laid-out deck and controls.

For background, I have 2.5 acres, 2 of it relatively flat, with 3/4 in trees here in SW Washington state. I picture using the tractor for landscaping and mowing. Iíve used a neighbors Massey and brush hog to get rid of 95% of the blackberries and other brush. Landscaping will consist of terracing the hill that my house sits on (weíve already built several retaining walls out of 45lb concrete blocks using nothing but back-power), creation of some drainage ditches and light grading of the rest of the property to change it from soggy pasture land to reasonably flat grassed area. Luckily I wonít have more than a few inches of snow here as opposed to all of you back east.

What are your opinions on which to choose and are these good prices

A couple implement questions too. I have a lawn tractor that I currently mow about 1 acre with. Is the 3pt. 60Ē finish mower going to be the right tool for the uneven pasture, or would you go with a MMM?

Iíve done some landscaping already with borrowed and rented tractors, using the bucket and a tiller. I havenít ever used a scrapper. Will I be able to grade and level what I want with a box scrapper, or should I get a tiller?

I look forward to your insights

I hope this assists with the price quotes you're getting. I just purchased a Deere 4110 with HST, folding ROPS, 410 FEL, R4s, and a 60" mmm. Purchase price - $15,975. Given the fact that the mmm alone was almost $2000, I think you could probably get a better price than you were quoted.

I also should mention that Deere has some really good financing options that started March 1. I would definitely check them out before you make a decision.
