I am looking at buying this machine with hoe, and tiller. can this little 16hp machine really cut it or is it too gutless to use for lite duty around the yard. is the hoe hard to mount and dismount?

While you guys size that job up, who knows what the max width -- 60 or 72 inches -- for a rear finish mower is for the B7300. There's one for sale here that looks promising. It's a 1998 with FEL for $8,500. When buying used from a dealer, how much wiggle room is there for negotiating? Thanx.

Usually smaller tractors aren't gutless in the sense that they have the power to operate implements that are designed for them. The jobs just take longer because the implements are narrower than for bigger tractors. However, small tractors do have some absolute limitations. Loaders and 3ph's can't lift what larger tractors can.

The power question mostly depends on how much time you want to spend on a tractor. Of course, a tractor that's too big ends up taking more time to maneuver and just can't go some places.

Auggie: Try and see. At least around here there'd likely to be more wiggle room for farm equipment now than other times. Most farm equipment around here is sold in the fall or certainly by the early spring. If there's going to be financial room in a year, there's money around after crops are in. Spring purchases run the risk of being back-ordered just when the equipment is needed. If a dealer has used equipment, they may be more inclined to part with it around now than later. At this time of year it's usually the service department rather than sales that's hopping.

Don't know how the hoe comes off on that model, so I can't venture into that aspect.

I do have a BX22 and can tell you that 16 horses will get the work done. I rarely use all 22 horses (full throttle) for actual work. Since I live nearly a mile above sea level, I suspect I don't have all 22 of those ponies in the barn anyway.

If the price is right and everything works, buy it. It might surprise you.

Auggie, John Deere says the 4010 at 18 horses can run a 60 inch mower(not cutter)but does not have the HP for the 72"

The 4100 (20 Gross/17 PTO)can run a 72 inch in their opinion.

If I was dealing with 16 horses, I would keep it on the smaller side.

tom West -

Can the b7300 cut it with a 16hp? I have a woods 650 backhoe on one of my B5200's,(13.5hp at engine and 11hp at pto). No problem at all, even with my everyday 16" scoop. Bear in mind, hydraulic "power" is not measured in HP, rather the displacement of hyd. fluid in a given period of time. One should not be running the hoe at full or even close to full engine rpm...this is dangerous territory. By operating at this speed, your backhoe will offer extremely "jerky" movements at best, and, will induce tremendous stress on the tractor as well, with or without subframe, not to mention possible bodily injury. I am typically operating at about 1500 rpm,(engine), with plenty of power for the "nasties".

As far as the tiller, I have been using a 50" BEFCO tiller since 1987. Plenty of power again, just realize the material consistency that you are tilling in. Clay will give you considerable more weight as one lifts the unit out of mother earth, as opposed to soil...and the water concentration is key as well.

I used to own a 99 B7300 and traded it in for a B2410. I live in the foothills in NC and found that the B7300 was too anemic for even mowing in hilly conditions. If you are a flatlander then it is a fine machine. It is a bit of a workout with no power steering and a rather weak hydraulic system. I got the B2410 as it gave me an extra 8hp, much improved hydraulics and power steering in a tractor that is practically the same size. I have had the B2410 with a loader for over 2 years and have about 300 hrs without a hitch. It mows up hill while in high range with a 60" belly mower without even complaining. The 7300 needed to be shifted into Low range for all but the shallowest hills or it would bog tremendously. I can only imagine how hard it would be to steer with a bucket full of soil. Making a wrong decision on a tractor is a costly mistake especially if you are using it for your own purposes and not for hire! Good luck and smart shopping Wink yeah right
