 Kubota 7510 HST versus DT

I am looking to buy my first compact tractor. I have researched what I need and I feel the 7510 with a loader and box blade will be correct for me. Beyond the convienence of the HST, are there and other considerations for the HST over the DT or are there better reasons for the DT if you do not mind shifting gears?
Thank you!!!

If you haven't done so yet, might I suggest test driving both? HST is smooth, basically trouble-free to use and maintain. And the biggest thing for me is it's so easy to operate making chores, well almost fun. I use mine commercially so speed is critical to me. And by that I mean I can go back and forth seamlessly when brushhogging under trees without taking my eye off the rear to see what gear I need to be in. To me HST is the next best thing to sliced bread. I'll never go back to a gear tranny. Oh yeah, and HST is great for infinite ground speed if you're mowing or rototilling.

HST has infinite speed control, which is nice for maneuvering in close quarters and for loader work, pallet work, etc. but you lose a couple of PTO hp. The gear transmissions can pull a bit harder for heavy soil work (plowing, etc). HSTs are probably easier to resell. If your family will be using it the HST is more friendly.

Go for the gears, it's just more like a real tractor. That is of course a personal opinion, I've driven hydros but they just never gave me that solid feel of gears. I don't know the cost difference of a Kubota, but a Deere is around 800 to 1,000. dollars higher for the hydro. I've sold and traded Deere compacts with 12/12 reversers, (gear drive), and never had any hesitation on the part of the buyer. I can see EW getting the helmet on already.

I'd go for the HST unless the 7510 has the grossly oversized Kubota treadle pedal, which is all the reason one would need to choose the DT instead.

You really need to demo the thing. Not just a couple of minutes either. Spend about an hour on each type if you can.

I have owned both types and there are advantages to each model. One thing I will tell you though, if you are going to be working very close to buildings (such as your house) you are far more likely to put an ding the siding or break a window with the gear tranny.

Get the HST. I have used both extensively and I much prefer the HST. It just seems like you are never in the right gear with a DT and always in the "right gear" with an HST.

Upon further review....

Your question is a matter of preference....not unlike the difference between a Kubota or Deere. So my previous definitive answer was a bit overbearing. All I can say is after using both, the HST on a BX series and the gear on a L series, I much prefer the HST. Mark's previous advice of using both if you can is solid advice.

Perhaps I should explain a bit my preference for gear drives. First as I said gears just have a solid feel to me, and I feel much more in control using a clutch pedal to inch up to semething than a hydro pedal. I have and still do run farm tractors since I was a kid that always had the clutch on the left and the two brake pedals on the right. We have all had panic situations where instinct acted before your thoughts could and you hit the clutch with your left foot and the brakes with your right foot. So to moderate my first reply a bit, having something with controls that are fimilliar could be a life saver, it all depends on what you are used to and comfortable with. Frank.

I have two tractors through my work. Both were givin to me brand new about two years ago. Both John Deere. One is a 50 HP geared, the other a 27 HP HST. The bigger tractor is a beast and when it comes to moving a pile of rock can get more done in a shorter period of time- but I don't enjoy doing it. I'll take the smaller HST anyday of the week because it's a blast to operate. And, my knees don't hurt at the end of the day. Also, I dont think that anybody as mentioned braking. On my HST, I very rarely use my brakes- only a couple of times over 100 hours. The machine does the slowing down for you when you tell the fluid to stop flowing. In a couple of years I will be buying myself a tractor- I dont know exactly what size, and I don't know what make- but it will have 4 wheel drive and it will have a hydrostatic transmission.
