We have about 8 acres and plan on buying a tractor for the first time. A cab is a must, so I've been looking at the Kioti DK 35/DK40, Kubota 3530 and JD 3520 with a FEL, 6 ft. mower and box blade. The Kioti looks like you get a lot more for your $$$ and it seems from the forum, they're very reliable and comparable to the kubota or Deere. Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. We know a 38 to 40 hp is probably overkill for this size acreage, the need for a cab will drive the size of the tractor.

I agree that the Kioti offers much more for the money but am not sure it's as troublefree as the others. Especially with a first tractor, even a new one, having a helpful dealer nearby is important. Power requirement depends on what you're going to do with the acreage.

If you want the cab for comfort, they can get pretty cold or hot without controls for that. If to keep the sun and rain off, consider a shade.

Thanks for the input. Temps regularly stay in the high 90's to 100+ during the summer, so the cab would have ac/heat. My plans are to move dirt, mow and try to pull out stumps after cutting the cedar down. There are 4 Kioti dealers with 37 miles of us, the closest is 19 miles and is a small mom and pop dealership. They seem very helpful and willing to answer questions. The difference in price between the Kioti, John Deere and Kubota for the same equipment is what I'm looking at. The comments on the forum seem pretty positive on all three. Have you or any frieds had any experience with either the Kioti DK 35 or 40, John Deere 3520 or Kubota 3540?

I am probably commenting after the fact but I just replaced my Kubota B7500 with a Kioti D45SE HST. Like you I looked at them all and tried as many as I could but I got the most for my money with the Kioti. They also had the longest and best warranty. I really like it. It is very comfortable, user friendly and plenty strong. I had an issue with the cruise control (misaligned magnet) after 25 hours but my dealer picked it up in the morning and had it back on my property by noon, no charge, warranty took care of everything. I'm real happy with the new rig which I use with a 6ft. bush hog for pasture mowing and with a 48in.BB for grading. The FEL gets constant use around our farm and also works easily with a good control location and a quick-disconnect 6ft. bucket. I would recommend this tractor without reservation. Remember though, your dealer is your best friend with equipment like this.

wizbang, how do you plan to pull those cedar stumps? Been about 27 years since I walked over some Texas land with the cedars but "pulling" with drawbar pull only it takes a lot of weight and hp to pull stumps. More than many think unless dug first.

This will be my first tractor, so it's going to be trial and error on cedar removal. My thoughts were to try digging at the base of the cedar with the FEL and trying to pull them out/push them over. Any other thoughts would be much appreciated. I was told by the Kioti dealer that trying to push them or dig them out, I could ruin the transmission.

You're right about a good dealer being key to having a good experience. Since this will be my first tractor, that will be particularily true. When I've stopped in at the Kioti dealership they've been very helpful. However, you can't contact them by email. I've mentioned it to them on three different occasions that their email is down, but it's still not working. I makes me wonder how long they're going to be in business. It's pushing me toward the green machine - even if it does cost more for the same equipment.
