 B7500 / B2710 Performance Questions

Hopefully my last (pre-purchase) questions: Still trying to make up my mind on the B7500 v. B2710. Leaning heavy towards the B7500 for price ($4600 less). A couple remaining questions:Interested in widest and heaviest blade someone has successfully used on the B7500. Dealer recommended a 48", 275 lb Woods-assume he's the one to know. Thinking I'll definitely want the 60" minimum (dealer recommended for the B2710)-plow snow and grade about 1 mile of road. Wondering if the B7500 will handle a 60", 500 lb blade (or a 72" !!)?? Do not want to jeopardize long term durability by going too big, though.Second, what can a compact pull weight wise?? Will they handle a utility trailer (with car tires) loaded to 2-3000 lbs. Assume yes, but never seen this addressed.Finally, which would be better on fairly hilly property from a mowing safety perspective; the B7500 or the B2710.Once again, thanks in advance. Can't thank those who spend their time here helping others enough!

 B7500 / B2710 Performance Questions

M.Sullivan, I certainly can understand your wanting to go with the B7500 because of the price difference, but I can also say, from your questions, you'll always wish you'd gone ahead and got the B2710. The B7500 probably has enough PTO power to pull a 5' mower, but it'll probably be too heavy. The dealer was right; stay with a 4' mower. The B2710 handles a 5' mower with ease. The same will be true of the blades. I don't know what the trailer towing rating is for the B7500, but my B7100 manual said trailers of 1000 pounds if I remember right (naturally you can pull a lot more than that if you're careful). The B2710 manual says for trailer of 3300 pounds with tongue weight of 800. Now the B7500 is certainly a nicer tractor with more nice features than my 1995 B7100 had, but the size and capabilities are not that much different, and there's just no comparison between them and the B2710 I have now.
