 JD 2210 vs B7500 vs BX 2200

Hi JD Folks - I posted this message over on the Kubota Board, and I wanted to see what "this side" had to say.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hi Everyone... I'm looking for some advice. I've been doing some serious research into the above 3 machines. I have 2+ acres of land (mow about 1.5, but that could expand). I have a paved 6000 sq ft driveway that I will be snow blowing and will be using a FEL for various "yard tasks". I've gotten quotes on the three machines, all with the following configuration: 54" mmm, FEL, Grass collection (a must, and not with any standalone engine), front mount snow blower, & wheel weights. Quotes are B7500 (18,100), BX2200 (15,200) and JD with no collection system (15,300). I don't mind spending the extra for the B7500, but want to make sure the mowing and collection system are comparable to the smaller BX configuration. Anyone that can share any advice would be appreciated.... Mowing/grass collection is #1 priority, snowblowing is #2, future expandability is #3. I look fwd to your comments.

When I was shopping I compared the John Deere 2210 to the Kubota BX2200. One of the deciding factors for me in buying the John Deere at $200 more than the Kubota was the operator presence detect feature that John Deere had but the Kubota lacked. With my son and wife handling some of the mowing duty I felt strongly about having this safety feature that will kill the engine if they were to leave the seat with the PTO engaged and the mower blades still rotating.

mhalla,

Were you able to find any grass catching (bagging) solutions for your 2210, that were driven by PTO, and not a separate gas engine?

Check trac-vac.com model 854/856. A minimum of 13.5 pto hp is required. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. I think that would work great for seasonal use during leaf cleanup - however I'm thinking of something along the lines of a bagger similiar to the Kubota Implement that fits the Bx2200 series, where backing up during weelky mowing wouldn't be effected (especially in my case where I have many trees...). I do appreciate your info, I have learned a lot about the collection systems that are on the market today!

When I chose the 2210 over the other two which I also considered price between the 2200 and the 2210 was nominal. I like the layout of the 2210 so much better than the Kubota with the forward and reverse plus I still dont grasp the concept of haveing a clutch pedal when you are already coughing up the cash for a Hydro. I laso did not like the odd placement of the brake on the Kubota. I did like the machines overall but I certainly did not see any price factor that I read so much about in favor of the Kubota. The real clincher here was that I could not find a decent Kubota dealer but that certainly will be different every where else.

Doc, I am confused. Which unit had a clutch pedal and what was it used for?

Both Kubotas have a clutch pedal for the PTO. It is only personal preferance but I just dont see paying for a hydro and still haveing a clutch pedal. For anything. When I started shopping the biggest plus I heard over and over was price on the Kubota. In our area that was no greater than one hundred dollars on the JD 2210 Vs. The Kubota Bx2200.

My BX has a lever on the fender to engage the PTO once you decide if you want front, rear or both.

Is that what you are referring to?

How does that differ on the 2210?

No I am referring to clutch pedal by your left foot. This is why Kubota has to have that awkward brake pedal over the drive pedal on the right, which to me is very odd. But again this is just personal preference. The PTO selector is on the side of the seat on the JD.
