 L3710 first tractor purchase

I've been looking at tractors for a few months. My wife and I just purchased 45 wooded acres where a farm used to sit many years ago. In addition, the property was timbered about 12 years ago. So what we have are mostly wooded acres with about 7 acres of meadows in the middle, where we will build a house in a couple of years. The existing driveway, which we will use is roughly 850 feet, but it needs work. The meadows that used to be fields are very "lumpy" with breyers everywhere. The wooded section has stumps and treetops everywhere. I want a machine that can handle this work as well as last me for many, many years.

With the tractor, I want to flatten the grassy areas, brush hog the breyers, cut the driveway and then maintain it, mow the lawn, remove snow, prepare areas for deer food plots.

I believe I found that machine and I'm looking for validation from you tractor experts. The machine I'm probably going to buy is a 1999-2000 Kubota L3710HST. It has 1600 hrs on it and is in great condition. It was owned by a mennonite who never used the tires/wheels, but instead, used steel wheels with a rubber track on the outside. Needless to say, the tires and wheels look brand new. The machine, other than the loader looks like a 9 out of ten. The loader is probably a 7.

I'm getting the tractor serviced, the tires filled and delivered for 14K ( I live 1.5 hrs away.) The only attachment other than the loader is a brand new woods 60" brush bull, which is included in the price.

Am I getting a fair deal? Is this a good tractor to suit my needs? ...and don't worry, I'm going to try to get the dealer to throw in a couple of Kuboater Hats.

Your input is greatly appreciated.

You didn't say what the tires are on this tractor. I think it is a great buy and a 72" box blade would be handy to work the driveway. I feel you are getting a good tractor to deal with the larger areas and woods as well as doing the finish work around the main contractors while building the house in your future.

I believe they are the ag tires. They have the aggressive bar tread design, not the wide bar tread that seems to be a more recent design, nor the wide flat lawn tires.

Thanks for your input Art. I will work on getting a box blade as soon as I get done playing with the brush hog.
