 Which Model?

I did a search but still have questions...

I have .5 mile dirt/gravel driveway that will occasionally need to be plowed in the winter. It will also need to be crowned. The property where I'm building my house is 160 acres with some trees. It basically all hillside and no mowing will be needed.

My needs:
1. rear plow - snow and road maintenance.
2. front end loader that can move dirt and hold firewood.
3. It would be nice to get a backhoe attachment but not a requirement.

I've seen a 7100 on craigslist for $6,000...

For just the tractor with front loader - I would like not to have spend more than $10K.

Tractorhouse.com has some nice machines. There is a 7800 in real nice shape for 11k and no plow. I know that's more than you wanted to spend but a half mile driveway will take a long time. I have a 7510 and it pushes snow with turf tires real well. But my drive is 200 feet and still takes a half hour when there are drifts. There are lots of Kubota adds on tractorhouse in Washington and Oregon. Good luck. Also, I know I'm on a KUBOTA sight but look into JohnDeere they are also good. A lot depends on the best service that is close by.

I have a dealer that carries and services both Deere and Kubota nearby. I'm guessing that the 30hp 7800 would be better than say a B7510 with 21hp?
Snow wise - last year the most the road got was 18". It is a dirt road though that may need occasional maintenance - crowning.

Thanks for your help.

The B-7100 is about the same vintage as a 9200 or a 2150 B-series that have three ranges which offer more speed options with good power. The low range in most two range systems will give up to about 4mph with WOT. The high range will take you to about 11mph. The three range has an extra range in the middle which would take you to about 7mph which works very well for power and speed without having to change a range. For loader work I normally recommend Power steering which the 7100 didn't have. The Kubota's can live for more hours then many people will own them mainly do to changes in the operators circumstances, like needing power steering with a loader do to older age or options of operators.

With your applications an alternative would be a larger older tractor like a Ford 5000 or a IH 544. The tractors above 50 hp tend to be cheaper as they are too heavy for the lawn. You have plenty of traction with a larger tractor and don't necessarily need the 4X. You can even find the larger 4x tractors with plenty of life left at more reasonable prices than the CUT.

Good call! you don't seem to have any regular or daily chores for the tractor and with the 160 acres might get into some heavier work. The older two wheel drives are more plentiful and they should meet your price range. To compare a two wheel drive to a four wheel drive just figure an extra twenty percent on the horsepower and you should be fine with the proper ballast.
