 B2410 vs. B7500

I'm new to this site, but you all seem to have a good perspective on Kubotas. What's the best to handle the following: Six acres of grass, to be cut weekly, large garden work like tilling, some front end loader work for snow, hauling, mulch etc. B2410 or B7500, both with belly mowers and FEL. I've got a BX but it's too low to handle the implements without bumping on the hills. Any help is appreciated. Al.

The problem with the BX is not the small wheels or that it is close to the ground, but that the top link, as short as it appears, is too long. If you could crank the top of the implement closer to the tractor it wouldn't bump on rough terrain. I am working on a way to fix the problem.

Shows what I know. I was told that it was too LONG and that Kubota was developing a shorter one that would bring it closer to the tractor. I see that Tractor Supply Co. now sells one about three inches shorter. Thanx.

I have a B7500 and mow 4 acres of bermuda grass weekly with a 60 inch Landpride rear mount mower. The tractor has plenty of power to do this even when its wet (at night).

I do not have a FEL, but do have rear forks to lift and haul stuff. The tractor has enough power to lift 4 railroad ties, although the front end was too light to go anywhere with them. I also have a 60 inch rear blade to maintain irrigation borders and it can push a lot of dirt. The rear limitation is when the borders get overgrown with grass and weeds the B7500 struggles to rip through the roots to move the dirt with a blade.

I got the B7500 over the larger tractors in the interest of keeping lawn compaction from tractor weight down to a minimum. Overall I have no complaints.

I have a B7500 hydro and have similar chores to what you have. I own 4 acres of which most is lawn. Loader is great for digging up topsoil and moving it around. Works well enough for snow too. Garden tilling is a cinch. Mowing is a pleasure. I opted for the 7500 over the 2410 for the simple matter of price. I sometimes wish I had gotten a larger tractor like a 2710, but only because I want one... not because I need one. This little b7500 has never been underpowered or too small for anything I have tried to do with it so far. Good little tractor.

Albert, Thanks for the tractor supply info. I just spent two hours in the garage experimenting with chain to determine the optimum length for the top link and figured I would have to remove 3 inches from the length. I was on my way to the welding shop when I read your post. You may have saved me a lot of trouble.
You would be amazed how high you can lift a box scraper with a 12-inch (7 inch body) top link.
Which BX do you have?

I'll try to get a part number tonite. I planned to get it last week but couldn't get into town. When I get the part number, I'll post it. And thanx for all the info. It seems like everyone thinks the B7500 will do the job of the B2410. And, BTW, mine is a BX2200.

Then unless you need taller wheels for some reason, the 7500 is a step down in stability and power. The 2410 has virtually the same power with just a bit more weight and, taller wheels. Is you dealer telling you about this top link part? If so I can call if you provide the number. Mark

I also own a B7500. I really like this machine, I purchased it because of price. The only set back is the ride. It can be a little jostle-ing to say the least. My old L175 was a lot better ride on the ruff stuff.
