 Kubota B8200

I am looking at a Kubota B8200 , 4 wh drive HYDR, with front loaded Bush Hog brand), and 4 foot rotary mower. Tractor has 325 hours on it and the guy wants $7,200. What do you people think?

Those tach's only have three digits, are you sure it hasn't been around? Good price if it is right.

The B8200s I have seen do not have power steering. If you are new to CUTs, be warned. In my opinion, all CUTs should have PS, as well as 4WD. Virtually all new tractors of this class have both now.

duke8444 -
The B8200 was one of the first of the CUT B series lines, that offered power steering. Unfortunately (?), for the smaller brothers of this unit, B4200,5200,6200,7200, they came thru without the luxury of power steering. The bigger brother yet, B9200, also offered ps.

Although the break through in ps with the CUTS is well received (unless you want arms the size of watermelons), "stonrg-arm steering" really was not that severe so long as one would be rolling, or, in a wide open area utilizing the FEL.
If one found themselves in a close area with a full bucket, you would soon realize the benefits of the power steering.
As a foot note to this, the smaller units, had an add on optional ps unit available, driven off the nose of the engine with a pump shaft mounted thru the grill, as there was no room within the engine compartment).

Unlike the newer units of B7500 vintage (as an example), the older hydrostatic units used a common hydraulic pump for all hydraulic applications of the given tractor. That said, the hydraulic system would be called a priority system, where by the HST would be #1 on the fluid flow priority list, the loader would be #2, the power steering would be #3, etc. On occasion, one would notice a starvation as the pump would want to play catch up.

Todays models, utilize twin pumps, so that more than sufficient flow is available for all of the potential tractors applications, and without the "priority" hydraulic layout/design.

I still have two of the B5200 units with FEL's. Honestly, never had any REAL issue by not having power steering, so long as I was rolling with the loader full.(and would not get rid of them for the world)

The tractor itself, as Art mentions, only came with a three place hr meter. Take a real close look at the tractor (inspect it thoroughly) for any signs that the meter read could be inaccurate. I would find it VERY hard to believe that it only has 325 hours on it. Otherwise, it sounds like it could be worth the money by your description.
