 Kubota BX1800 or BX2200

Looking to buy the tractor/front loader and use it for landscaping, slashing, and general work around my 2 acre property. Not sure which model to buy. Is the extra power of the BX2200 that much more worthwhile than the BX1800?

I'm at sea level, and there is no snow here. The ground is gravel and light clay soil, with laterite "coffee" rock often close to the surface.

The extra horsepower would only be a benifit if using it for PTO work like mowing. Both tractors weigh in the same and that is what counts for digging.

 Kubota BX1800 or BX2200

I live almost a mile above sea level and I rarely use all the power my BX22 generates.

When I was "bulldozing" brush for a new driveway I would run at less than 1/2 throttle in low gear so I could reduce the wheel spin to near zero and not over stress the front blade if I hit a rock. Even at low power settings it just ripped the brush out of the ground.

When I use the backhoe I never run at full power, never. It is just not needed and the controls are much smoother at half throttle.

When I am pushing into a pile of dirt with the FEL it actually works better at reduced throttle settings as the wheels don't dig in so much.

The only time I use full throttle/full power is in transport. Like when I have a big scoop of gravel and I am running 400 feet to the top of the driveway with it.

I think my tractor would be just as efficient for my present needs with 18 HP, but as Art pointed out, I am not mowing or running anything off of the PTO's
