 B3030 vs. L3130

My husband and I are in the market for a Kubota tractor. We have 8 acres and currently mow about 2 acres. We want a tractor with a loader and mower, and would also like to use it for plowing snow. We recently checked out and test drove the B3030 and liked the features it offers. Our question is about the L3130. How would this tractor be for mowing the lawn? Most of our land is flat, though there are some spots with sloping. We don't have many trees to contend with. My husband liked the idea of a heavier tractor, but would we regret it after we mow with it? Thanks!

 B3030 vs. L3130

An L-series is a bit big for mowing 2 acres, but as long as the area is wide open and you don't mind a lot of triming it'll work fine. Keep in mind, the mid mount mower on an L-series is a monster. Suggestion: If you think you want the 3130, go for it or you might regret it later. Use the $$$ you would have spent on a mid mount mower on a good rider or a used zero-turn instead.

The B3030 sounds like a great fit for what you want. The L-Series is a bit much for mowing a couple acres.
