 compact tractor comparison

I am looking for help in deciding on a reliable compact tractor for bush-hogging (4 or 5 ft mower) and gardening (front-end loader). I am seriously considering the Kioti 1914 or 2554 and the Kubota L2600 or B2410. Price and reliability are big considerations. I would appreciate any advice. [John Deere and New Holland are too expensive in my area]. Thanks

It may be to your advantage to shop around a bit more. I was originally looking at a KIOTI because Deere and New Holland were too expensive. I couldn't even consider Kubota. I began to look on the internet for pricing and a dealer in Kentucky had great prices on KIOTI. When I went to a local dealer (well known), I was suprised at the pricing. A KIOTI 2554 w/loader was 13,700. I began to look at John Deere beecause someone told me about the 790's. A brand new 790 w/loader was 14,097. Thats 30hp vs the KIOTI's 25hp for only 400 odd dollars. I couldn't get the dealer to consider the prices that I got off the internet so I bought the Deere. I understand that KIOTI is a good tractor. I understand that they "borrowed" the design and engineering from Kubota. I couldn't see buying the KIOTI with the reliability level of the Deere. John Deere dealers are very busy pushing the 4000 series, so when I first went to John Deere, this particular dealer didn't even show me a 790. I went to another dealer. New Holland was still high. I love the 790. I runs and works great and you can steer the thing with 1 finger. It also has a great turn radius. Take a little more time and shop. It may be worth it for you. Good luck!!!!

Ron, those 790s looked real good to me as well. Good hydraulic pump flow, power steering, mid PTO, and a proven engine/tranny combo. A hard combination to beat.

a few months back I got tractor fever in a bad way. I found this and other forums, read all i could, and made the rounds of dealers new and used, real and cyber. As i understand it, some of the better internet new prices are for factory direct, read partial assembly required, units. I really fell in love with the new deere 990 but way too much money. I found and purchased a forester package assembled by les distributors payeur which includes a 3 year old Kioti LK3054 and metavik log loading trailer. the tractor has 340 hours and was provided with substantial skid plates and falling object protection by payeur. I am very pleased with the power, traction, and operation of both tractor and loader, as a support for my portable sawmill operation both have become invaluable. I also purchased a walco whistler brush hog and have been taming the wild grass and hay around the 11 acres of orchard i just moved to. Short of catching up on the maintainence i think the previous owner neglected i am very happy with this $16,000 purchase and the new fel sits waiting for assembly.

James, Could you detail the prices of all the gooddies you got? Actually I'm curious to see how do these tractors go for? They seem to be more reasonbly priced than the other brands... Also, the price you gave was it in Canadian or US dollars?

actually i bought the tractor, a kioti 3054, and the loader trailer, a metavic 1050 am12, as a package for 16,000. I did a lot of real world and internet shopping before finding this set up in a local want ad magazine. the previous owner moved up to a forwarder for his tree harvesting company, and i was the right person at the right time. i use the tractor and log loader as support for my woodmizer sawmill and for harvesting logs and firewood from my 86 acres. this combination is well suited for my operation though it was somewhat small for the previous owner, thus i was able to talk him down in price as he new i was his buyer for this special package. new these two sold for nearly $33,000 as a package from les distributors payeur www.payeur.com in canada. the tractor has extensive protection and skid plates along with rops and fops. to establish a relationship with payeur i bought a kioti loader and walco 6 ft mower from them, giving me a very versitile support combination for my sawmill and firewood operation. with less than 400 hours i feel that i made a good purchase at a very good price. the tractor is smooth and powerful and i have moved 10 ft 28 inch diameter red oak logs with ease. the mower has tamed the orchard though i have yet to insall the fel. this package definately fixed my tractor fever. james

That forester package is pretty nifty... Thanks for the feedback on pricing. Now I only have to keep looking for a good deal.

I looked at the JD 790, Ford TC29, and Kubota L3000. All three were priced pretty close in this area of New England. Th JD 790 had a 3PH lift cacity of only 813 LBS. The NH was the highest price. I bought the Kubota. I really like it. I don't think the Kubota L2600 comes with a dual clutch, which you are going to want if brush hogging is one of your tasks.

All three tractors are nice machines. The only down side about Kioti's in this area is a dealer that sells them. I would have to drive 70 miles to get to one with a service tech.

Happy tractor hunting

Are you sure that that 790 3ph lift capacity isn't in Kg? My JD870 (roughly compatable) has a 3ph lift capacity of 853 Kg (1880 lbs) 24 inches behind the lift link ends.
