 Kubota M8540 vs M7040 PTO, CAT I/II Quandary

I really like the power offered by the M8540. In some ways it may be a too much power. But it is my understanding that if you can afford more power, get it.

The thing is it is Category II only and the 7040 is Cat I & II. I would like to add some PTO items like a concrete mixer and chipper, they are Cat I. Is there a converter from Cat I to Cat II for connecting Cat I PTO implement to a Cat II Hitch?

Should I just stick with a tractor that offers Cat I & II and that would solve the issue?

In addition the bucket on the 8540 is more substantial in several ways. But what I was a little more interested in was if the 7040 bucket and the 8540 bucket would both clear a dump truck for dumping.

alt255,

I don't know how high your truck box is, nor do I know which loader models you're looking at. However, if this is the primary use for this tractor, please select a tractor that will work properly for that application. The three-point problems can be worked around.


Joel

The 8540 chassis is the same as the 9540 and the 7040 chassis is the same as the smaller tractors. The loader for the 7040 with the bucket dumped is at 101 and the 8540 has 110" clearance. There are adapters to make catagory one pins the same diameter as catagory two so other then the width spread as Joel stated that would not be a problem for you.
