Looking at a small utility tractor have looked at the following up close (with sales droid in my face of course) JD 2210, Kubota BX23 and 7510, and now looking at the Kioti CK20 and 25.

The Kioti's are real impressive and I am making a trip to look into those machines VERY closely they look like real workhorses...

Most of the smaller Deere's and a couple not-so-small are completely made in Japan. Hard to find a more trouble free tractor than a 2210.

The BX23 is like a swiss army knife on a camping trip. It will do a hundred small jobs, but skinning a buffalo might be best tried with a bigger tool.

The only practical difference between a BX and a 7510 are the bigger tires.

The best way to buy a tractor is to start with what you want it to do. If you need to brush hog 30 acres don't even bother with the BX or 2210.

Well the JD salesman told me that the diesel engine of the 2210 is made by a company called Yanmar...

I don't know, maybe your right - but I just don't like the fact that they are pieced mealed - whether it's in Japan or the US. Plus the PRICE is astronomical completely out of sight!!!! I suppose that's why the company caters to the yuppie crowd.

Plus I don't like the idea of buying from a company that does business with Home Creepo...

The whole tractor is Yanmar. You have to shop for the best prices.

Some people downgrade John Deere because some of their products are made in Japan. Some downgrade them because some of their products are made in the US. Others downgrade them because of where their products are sold. Others downgrade them because of their pride in their colors.

You can't make everybody happy. Most farmers are proud of displaying their green. They ain't yuppies. I presently don't own a JD CUT tractor but my next one will be! And that is for sure!!!

If you want an American made CUT you need to get a JD model starting with 4 cylinder diesel. I'm told they make the whole thing including the engine. That's a whole lot more tractor than you are looking at.

the bx23 and 2210 are both compact tractors, not designed for huge jobs. Don't knock the CUTs till you've been on one awhile; I was amazed what my bx23 could do! I opted againt the Jd because theirs wasn't really designed for the BH. They'd have to add a bunch of hoses and a valve and some other stuff (compared to kubota where it's totally designed to run a BH). New Holland was even worse-they wanted me to remove the MMM every time I hooked the BH up (stupid!)

Tell us what you want to do and how big the mowing -plowing - digging projects will be and we can give you a better answer.

I would ignore where the tractor is made. Even "american" cars are assembled of parts made anywhere in the world. Focus instead on the warranty and on the quality of your local dealer.

Yooper the closest we have to an american made cut is probably the Cadet not Deere as the chassis's are made up to and including many of the four cylinders by Yanmar.

Several JD dealers have told me that the new 4120's and larger are made by Deere. Sorry if that is incorrect!

1999cobra, With only 3+ acres, a BX would suite you fine. Don't be afraid of being categorized. If it works for you, why would you care?

Far as that goes, you could probably get by with a Murray from Wally World.
