Nice tractor for the money. The biggest differences would depend on your uses.

The 7800 and the 2910 are the same except for a few "Creature Comforts". Kubota even says they are the same powertrain, hp, etc,etc. The seat is different, no telescoping 3pt lower arms (the 7800's are fixed like everything else), headlights are different, no tilt, no hand hydro control, no center bracket between the rear fenders, and a few other minor things. One dealer told me they thought Kubota overpriced the 27-2910 and the 7800 was set to reposition Bota in the 30 hp category. The dealer around here are afraid to order the 27-2910 due to the closeness in the tractors and the large difference in price. You can save a lot of money on a 7800 if you can live without the minor extra features.

If these are the "features" you can see that have been cut, perhaps they have cut other corners to reduce cost that cannot be seen externally. I wonder if the quality is as good as the 2910.

Perhaps just my suspicious nature. Or perhaps my knowledge of the way business seem to operate these past few years. Profit first quality last.

I think that if you look at the feature differences you will find the price difference, as the rest of the tractors are identical.

Art,
Do you really think there is that much difference in the pricing of the features. It was nearly $3,000 cheaper. Also, the 7800 has the new 1/4 inch valving. Are the other tractors like this or are they experimenting with it on the 7800?

Well guys, I can tell you that in Va. the difference in price of the 2910 and the 7800 is $1,255.00. It was still enough for me to go for the 7800. In fact I am picking it up tommorrow. I will let you know if it gets the job done. I

Retail price differences starting on the B-7800 to the 2710 is 1500. To the 2910 it is 2500. I did drop a dollar off just to use round numbers. Things to consider, if you are going to be hooking to the three point, the extendable hitches would be nice. Different operators might find the tilt wheel nice. The better seat for longer jobs would be nice. It's just a difference of will a chevy do or would you like the top of GM's line and go to the Cadillac. For the least dollar spent, the B7800 will do what the 2910 will pull, mow or push.

I think this B 7800 tractor is going to open a can of woopass on the JD790 (no hydro available).
