 BX 22 TLB big enough???

Hi,

This is my forst post but I have done some reading here and on other forums.

My problem is that I am looking at my first tractor purchase and don't know what to get. My needs are as follows:

11 acre property (flat land, Goshen, NY)

Divided as follows:

2.5 acre- house and lawn (more like grass than true lawn Smile)
5 acre horse pasture
3.5 woods with several small horse trails (not real but small downed timber bushes etc.)
have six horses (4 stalled the other 2 are turned out 24/7 with run-in sheds) could go to 10 horses some day soon

The barn only holds 4 horses so manure management should be pretty constant even with a few additional horses. The horse pasture is kept about 75% maitained now by the horses. The edges are nasty thorny stuff that go within the first hours that I get ANY tractor (payback time for all those thorns I am plucking out of my arm).

My choices seem to be between a larger 25-30 hp compact with out the BH or the BX 22 TLB or Kioti 1914 TLB.
I think the BX or 1914 can get the job done as far as moving manure, dirt, occasional stone for the driveway,but I am not sure if they will be good for brush hogging the trails and the nasty stuff that is presently on my fence line.

The problem is if I move up to say a 30hp (was considering Kioti 3054) I can't afford the hoe. I also am realistic to know that the wife is not going to be forking over an extra5 -6,000 any time soon after I buy a tractor. It is also nice to have the hoe thrown into the original financing a Kubotas current 0%.

I also need some french drains and can think of 100 other hoe jobs if I try. Whatever tractor would see weekly manuure moving/spreading, weekly lawm mowing and monthly brush hogging. The rest would be snow moving, yearly stone driveway touch up (250ft), firewood moving and some (small) posthole digging.

Can I get by with the BX-22 or 1914? I think the BX-22 looks like a great machine and I don't mind a little extra time doing chores but don't want to not be able to complete jobs or destry the machine. Boy, but I do love the TLB package......

ANyone out there doing similar with a small machine?

HELP!

 BX 22 TLB big enough???

my opion only,the bx-22 does not have the weight or ground clearence for server field work/ 4wd is not going to help you when your axles are pushing mud. a bucket of horse manure is going to tax a 22 .the height of the bucket will get it into a pick-up but not a dump truck .like most posts will agree buy more (hp) if you can !!!!

Have you considered a John Deere 790? Dollar for dollar it is one of the best value tractors on the market. Would do all you are wanting but does not have all the bells and whistles.

Kubota's 0% financing is for up to 36 months.Kioti currently has the same 0% for up to 36 months.

You might have to work a BX22 a little harder now to open things up the way you might like, but in the future it should handle everything easily. There are draw backs to the loader height that has been metioned but they are built and will take care of your property fine. Besides that if you do find it a little small, I'd be more than glad to buy it from you as they are so hot we won't have any free to sell till the end of August.

Considering the money situation, you might want to look around for a used 40 hp or so utility tractor, not necessarialy 4WD.
You can quite often find a good used IH/Massey/Ford/JD with loader for well under 10K. Probably about 5K.

I'm a 9 month owner of a BX22. I do many of the things you talk about, though on a smaller scale, less acreage, fewer horses. The advice on going with more HP is always offered, however, in my case I was looking for a combination of maneuverability and capability. I needed a tractor that would easily move in/out of stalls and 48in wide gates in stone walls. The 22 fit my needs perfectly. I haven't found a job yet that I couldn't do with the 22, though in some cases certainly not as quickly as a bigger machine.

These debates rage on and on. It really comes down to you matching your requirements with the tractor. My neighbor owns a commercial JD backhoe rig and uses my 22 around his house/barn frequently to get to areas his bigger rig can't access.

Im New Holland predjust,,so give the TC30 some thought,,and the ground clearence is a problem with the BX22,,also with New Holland you get a nicer tractor and more gears and a nicer work area than a Deere,,

Did you consider the Kubota B7500 - It has better ground clearance than the 22 and is not that much more expensive. With backhoe it is about 2k more than the 22 which is nothing over three years. I was looking at the BX22 but instead decided to order the 7500.

You are getting better prices than I found on a 7500. The closest dollar gap I found was closer to $5K.

The best quote I got from a very competitive dealer was over $21K for a 7500 TLB while the same guy was selling the BX22 for just under $16K
