 BX23 BH vs. B7800 BH???


Hi Folks,
I know the B7800 BH will out dog the BX23 BH but I'm curious by how much.
Is it night and day? Can the B7800 dig out a 24" stump fairly easy where that size stump is too much for the BX?
And, how about the B7510's BH? Is that one closer to the BX23's capability than the B7800?
Still haven't made a move yet due to my employment situation but it looks like things may be brightening in that area, so I'm back looking at tractors.
Thanks alot,
DT.

 BX23 BH vs. B7800 BH???

I have similar questions myself.

I am looking at both unit currently. I really like so many things about the bx, but don't want something too small. Seems that the difference between a 6 foot bh and a 7.5 can't be all that much. You are not going to be using the 7.5 to excavate a basement so how often would the extra 1.5 foot come in handy. Seems like speed is the difference. If you can't quite dislodge something with the BX, the bigger unit might do it faster because of it's strength. Also you have more reach so you may not have to move as often allowing greater speed. Seems like if time is money and you use the hoe alot, the bigger the better. If time is not vital, I bet the little BX could do 99 percent of what it's big brother could do.

I am currious to hear replys.

Agent, sounds right.

In addition to my own jobs I'd like to make a few bucks on the side with it. In those cases I can't be spending 2-3 days digging out a big stump. Not a confidence builder for customers for them to see you struggling with your equipment trying to do something they're paying for.

I'd also like to buy a decent size snow blower (front mounted) and make some money in the winter.

For making money, the larger the better but if the BX isn't all that much different I'd buy it.

I've also read that using a BH on a B-Series can do bad things to the tractor frame.

Not sure how accurate that is.

The problems with b-series BH's are with the 3pt mounted ones. They can put excessive stress on the top link mount and/or transmission case. If a sub-frame mount is used these issues are nearly eliminated.

The B series (especially the 30hp 7800) have *ALLOT* more hydraulic capacity than the BX does (flow and power). The BX will do the same jobs, but the B will do them much faster and more efficiently. If you can afford the B, and the larger chassis size is not to large for your needs, bigger is always better.

AV,

How do you define "too large for your needs"?

To me, too large for one's needs means too large to fit in the spaces it had to go into.

No?

And maybe too large to fit in the garage/shed...

Can you think of any others?

Thanks,

DT.

 BX23 BH vs. B7800 BH???

I need manuverability and am currious how long a B7800 is with BH and loader? Also, how long are we looking at for Bushhogs? I was thinking of a 5 or 6 footer, about how long would a B7800 be with loader and Bushhog? I have 18 foot of trailer, and figure I would need every bit of it. I was looking at the L series with loader and Bushhog and believe I would barely fit with tractor and Bushhog alone?

I need to work in some tight areas, and the B7800 looks twice as big as the BX, and the L series looks twice that of the B7800.

Another downside to larger is the need for a bigger trailer and truck to haul it if you need to.

I have a 7800, and with a FEL and box blade, it is about 16 feet long. You are correct; your 18 foot trailer would be very full.

I used a tape to measure my tractor, and the length I told you earlier is not accurate. Actually, from the tip of the bucket (not including toothbar) to the backside of the rear tire, it is 12 feet. To the rear of the box blade, it is 14 1/2 feet. Hope this helps.
