 Price Comparison L3130 vs. B3030

We currently are in the market for a new Kubota. We currently mow 2 acres, but since we are buying a bigger tractor, we will possibly cut 4 to 6 acres. We received the following quotes from a dealer in Western Pennsylvania (for tractor, FEL, rear mower, industrial tires): $20,840 for the L3130 and $18,800 for the B3030. Do these sound reasonable? Why is there so little difference in price when the L3130 is a such bigger machine? Also, my husband has seen posts where people said they received quotes online. Does anybody have any suggestions on what websites to go to for this? Thanks!

That's a reasonable price for a B3030, but you could probably get a mid-mount mower for that price instead of the rear mower. The L3130 requires an mid-PTO upgrade to use a mid-mount mower, but with its weight, and larger size, an l3130 is not suited for that sort of mowing anyway.

The L3130 is certainly more tractor, but with a few less conveniences and comforts. Its weight makes it too big for some mowing chores, and it was too tall for my garage (even with the folding ROPS (B3030 just fits). I worried that the L3130 would be too intimidating for my wife. I loved it, she loves the B3030, and particularly the HST. I like the HST when bush-hogging in tight situations, and that would have added to the price.

I often compare childrens shoes priciing to adults when talking small tractors to larger ones. I can put about four pair of childrens shoes into mine but yet they cost the same! It is often the technology and machines to build that cost the most compared to the material.

i have a 3130 GST w/ 513 loader love that machine. i paid 18,500 for it in missouri but if your planning to spend any real time on the tractor go with the 3130 it is so much more user friendly than the 3030.
