 kubota b 7200 or ford 8n?

I am looking at both of these tractors, i have 12 acres, will do a little mowing but have a long gravel road to grade. the kubota is a 1987 and is hydro, no FEL, but has a blade on the front. which is the best tractor, not considering cost. thanks for you response.

 kubota b 7200 or ford 8n?

The B-7200 is a good reliable tractor tractor and the front blade is a lot nicer to use then a back blade. The hydraulics work on the Kubota all the time unlike the 8N which it stops when you depress the clutch. Both tractors are near equal on the PTO as they are disengaged when the clutch is depressed and the 8N doesn't have an over-runnning clutch so they can get pushed by the mower till it stops.

motoprop -

Personally, I would go with the B7200. But...that's me.

A couple of questions for you to ponder besides Art's points -

1)Although you said you had a long drive, what type of terrain is the rest of the twelve acres? If it is "hilly", the 8N will offer a wider footprint and generally a lower cg, relative to the footprint.

2)Is the B7200 four wheel drive or two wheel drive? If it is 4wd, it will offer much more versatility in the long run,(implements, loader to install, etc), not to mention the added stability gained thru traction of the 4wd feature.

3)How much time will you be spending on it? The Kubota, though a different animal than today's versions, still are much more comfortable on the old behind than the old fords are.

Amongst others, I still have two B5200's (see pic), and would not give them up. I even prefer them in many ways over newer models - but like I said, they are two totally different animals from older to newer Kubota lines.
