I am sorry to ask this stupid Q, but I'd like to see what you, the actual owners, think. What do you have and why.

I like a grand L 3130, but it may be too big for my needs.
Will 2800 series tractor dig a driveway /300ft/.. deep enough for a concrete?/

IS GL 3130 too heavy for a residential work/3200 lb/.
2ac. residential suburban work and pole building , wood cleaning jobs./light non commercial/.
WHICH one would be the most appealing?? ......Maybe 7800??
Thanks in advance,
J.C.

JC, not as an owner but of someone who likes tractors and enjoys the pleasures of the operation of all the new ones enough to keep me in the business working with them. The L-series is just fine for what you stated your uses would be although on the large side although the 2800 allows for no mid connections. You didn't add mowing to the list so that would make it useable. To a customer walking in I'd find the best overall value in the BX 24 for you with a deck for the size of your place even with your work listed. The chance to make some money working off your property could justify the added size to take on unordinary suprises found on many job sites.

Thanks Art,

yes, mowing may be a case, not a must. Thanks for your help.
BX would be capable as you say and some extra buck may go with it, but I don't like her body...too small, you know ,it's just like dating for me, she better be good looking...Laughing out loud

JC I often find the small adaptable body means more attachments for the same price making it easier to accomplish more jobs with less outlay.

Art,

it's a difficult decision, if you have no clue what to expect from it/tractor/. L 3400 and GL 3240, smaller body stronger HP and PTO HP vs. more tractor , but less HP.
Is L3400 really stronger?? Is 3400 better seller, so obviously more appealing for people who know this stuff??
The money is not an issue at this moment.
Very difficult decision for me, since I have absolutely zero experience. And my inability to decide for weeks make me sick. I may end up buying nothing.

J.C.

I like to look at the long term. What do you want the tractor to do while you own it? For the two acres any thing more then a BX might be considered overkill if you have to buy another unit to mow the yard with! Yes I said the little BX, they suprise a lot of people as to what they can do. I'm not going to say that it can pick the same bucket full as the L-series tractor can but they can work all day just like the larger tractor but don't expect the same amount of results. I have customers that put in 300 foot plus driveways with them and still mow the yard.

You have to look at the long term of the tractors uses and then way out the size. For my own yard(I'm lazy) I figured about a 48" mower for the average home owner and the yard is set so at best I trim every other mowing with a trimmer but I have or need no walk behind mower. I've mowed it with larger 60" decks but then I have trouble with clippings in some landscaped areas.

Art,.. makes a good point on size, I have a BX23 and I thought about buying a larger tractor when I built my pole barn. And at times I needed a larger tractor but my BX did just fine it took a little more time to do some jobs, but now the barn is all done and now my BX mows about 2 acres and works out just fine and it plows a 450 foot drive way and I have no problems with it. So in the long run the choice of the BX was a good choice. Big might be fine now, but in the long run will big be to big?
