 Best model for my needs ???

Greetings all,
Very inpressive member knowwedge found here...I'm looking for my first tractor and am interested in Kubota products.
I have ~40 acres of open land in North central AZ (Prescott). Brush, almost no grass, old (40+ yrs)stumps and toppled trees to contend with. I will be building a home and workshop, 2-3 acre garden and dirt drive. No snow that lasts more than 2 days. 5,000' elevation and soft soil w/ areas of river rocks and cementatious rock formations. Sounds like a lunar landscape here but hope to transform it into our little bit of heaven. I need a tractor suitablre for my wife (5'3 & 125#'s wet) to be able to manage for garden and landscape duty as well as anything that comes up in the future. FEL, box scraper, roto-tiller sound like basic needs at start-up. Please advise on recommendations.
I am leaning toward hydro trans & 4X4.

Many thanks for all help.
Regards to all

AZranch, I agree that you should go with the hydro tranmission & 4x4, as well as the implements you mentioned. Probably want a toothbar on the FEL. I'd suggest the B2710/2910 as a starting place. Smaller might be nice sometimes in the garden, but bigger would be better on the other jobs, so I think that would be best all round.

Bird Senter...thanks for the feedback. What might list price be on these (2710-2910)?
I am planning a trip to a dealer nearby, what might the real walkaway price be like?
Regards

AZranch, what I've seen indicated that "retail" or MSRP for the B2710 alone is $15,500, but the fact is that you can get them considerably cheaper. In fact, I paid $15,500 for both tractor and loader ($12,600 for the tractor, $2,900 for the loader, and then added $295 for a steel canopy); R1 (ag) tires. My dealer told me yesterday that he would want $15,750 for the same rig today. So I'd say $15,500 to $16k for tractor and loader, and figure another $700-1,000 for the B2910.

AZ Ranch,
Just for grins, I would suggest you look at the Grand L series Kubota for a comparison to the B2910. The L3010 is the entry level in the L series while I believe the B2910 is the top-end in the B series. The price between the B2910 and the L3010 are very similar in the Dallas area. The L series gives you a slightly sleeker tractor along with more operator comfort and even a little stronger in most area:e.g. L3010-32 gross hp/24 pto hp, the B2910 30 gross hp/22 pto hp////L3010 fuel tank 9+ gallons, B2910 6+ gallons////L3010 lift at 24" behind lift 2200 lbs, B2910 1300 lbs////total hydraulic flow-L3010 11.7 gpm, B2910 9.5 gpm. The L3010 gives you an adjustable, reclinig seat, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control. I'm not sure if the B series include those 3 features. If your time on the tractor is long, comfort sure means a lot at the end of the day. A few dollars more in the beginning can be returned many time over the years. I don't mean to meddle, but I tho't my notes might be of some benefit in your evaluation process. Good luck.

JWY, the B2910 does include the tilt, cruise, adjustable seat, etc.; HOWEVER, I suggested the B2710/2910 as a STARTING point, and certainly don't disagree with your suggestion to look at the L series also. Good idea, as far as I'm concerned.
