 L3000DT 4x4 - right choice?

First, thanks for lots of great info. It sure makes it easier to make a purchase like this with lots of good information.

Here's what I have:
37 acres, approxiamtely 1/2 wooded and the other 1/2 is currently a recently harvested peanut field. We'll be building our new home on roughly 1-2 acres. The rest will be split between pasture (about 10 acres) for horses and a 5 acres for hay.

I know I'll need the FEL and and brush hog. I'm looking to getting a used auger for doing the fence poles. My question is this, am I looking at the right choice in tractors for the jobs and size of land? Any other choices in tractors? Are there any other implements I should look into?

Obviously, I'd like to get the proper tool for the job and am willing to spend the right amount of dollars to get it done. I'm not rich by any means, just want to put my hard earned dollars to the best use. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I welcome and appreciate all responses.

 L3000DT 4x4 - right choice?

Phil i own a L2600DT and it is a Great Machine. I almost bought a 3000 but didn't need the live pto. Great buy for the money. Good luck AL. PS i put on a Sims cab with a heater and moved tons of snow.It keeps the cab compfy in the cold Catskill Mountains.

Thanks for your reply. I was also looking at the 2600 but did not think it was large enough to do what I want a tractor for. I plan to use it for mainly mowing pastures and also some driveway maintenance. Do you think the 2600 could handle those tasks? I've read the main difference between tractor sizes is that a larger tractor will get the job done quicker. That's not a big concern for me as I enjoy being outdoors so extra time spent on tasks is no big deal.

 L3000DT 4x4 - right choice?

Phil, I would look at numerous tractors and decide for yourself. I Personally think you should look a bit larger. If you're sure you want a Kubota with gear tranny, (please check numerous threads on this topic) I would go for the L4300DT. I would also check out the Korean counterparts. Mahindra, Century/Branson and Kioti. Going with a hydro changes things a bit. In the lower powered units, the TC 30 New Holland is a very nice no frills unit as is the B7800 Kubota. I would go bigger personally. JD 4610, NH TC40D and Kubota L3830 would be at the top of my hydro wish list. Just realize you're getting up there in price, over $20K, but you won't look back wishing you had bought bigger which happens all too often when purchasing a CUT of any color!
Have fun shopping, it's almost as much fun!
