 Size of Kubota

I just purchased a 4 acre, wooded lot with a medium down grade (5 to 20 degree). It has fallen timber and dense brush. I have a small cleared yard with little grass. There are modest supply of rocks. I would like to cut, split and haul wood to house, cut walking trail, and clear 10-15 ft Rhododendrum area to sit at small stream. No snow to speak of in Asheville NC. Roads are gravel. What size Kuboto would you recommend and accessories?
Thanks for any help.

I'd guess something in the BX series would work fine. If you need to dig rocks and stumps a backhoe, like the BX23/24 have, would be nice. A rotary cutter for clearing brush too.

Go with the B-series. The extra weight and full Cat-1 3-point will be worth the extra money. The BX series have a limited Cat-1 hitch that you might find is not right for the clearing work you want to do.

The BX is a great machine, but you might find a sub-comact too limited for what you want to do.

I could agree with Beagle for the part of initial clean up but after that the B would be to larger for storage and the hoe mount on a BX is one of the best and yet to be designed for strength. The BX will take a little longer to get the job done but it will be better for the long run for an ideal package.

I've got a BX23 for 2 wooded acres sounds similar to yours. I love it. There is very little I can't do. I will agree with Beagle, that there are some times where I have to go slower or work it around some spots but it does just fine. I also agree that once you get the heavier stuff done, the BX would be perfect.

I bought a BX23 about 13 months ago and have almost 250 hours on it. When I got it I had planned to keep it about a year put in some drainage field and resale it. After having seen what it will accomplish I don't think I can maintain my 10 acres without it unless I could trade up to the BX24. Just size the implement to it and it will do the job.

Don't be fooled by the small stature of the BX. It is really a much bigger machine disguised in a smaller package. If you will be working in the woods or other tight areas, nothing beats a BX in manuverability.

My BX23 is as amazing monster in a small machine. It tears, rips, digs, pushes, plows, pulls etc. ....you get the idea. Sometimes my smaller machine can get into spaces that would be prohibitive for a larger one and it gets the job done and done well. I sometimes transport it in my 7' X 14' enclosed trailer to a job site. I gotta stop because I could go on and on about how much I love this Kubota on my 3 acres.

You would be very surprised what a BX 23/24 can do. Would a larger tractor be better, Yes I would have to agree with others on that for some things, when I needed the bigger equipment I called in a friend and he helped out with his big Caterpillar it would take him 5 min. to rip out a 2 foot dia. Stump where it would take me a couple hours to dig around it, but then again when I had to remove 80 stumps his excavator was faster. Now that all the big stuff is done my BX23 is a great tractor, I have a 5 foot 3PH rear blade and the Kubota 5 foot front blade for snow removal (since I live in Michigan) that works off the FEL joy stick I use this to clear my new 450 foot long drive way and it works great. All in all my BX23 is a good size for my 2.25 acres I also have the 60 inch MMM for mowing the grass. My neighbor has a Kubota B 20 and laughed at my BX till he saw what it can do. The choice is up to you, sometimes bigger is not always better. Good luck..
