 Kubota L3430 Is the JD 4310 the equivalent?

On the Kubota site, they compare the Grand L3430 to the John Deere 4310, are these the equivalent of each other?

My Dad is considering the JD 4310 and I have told him to look at the Kubota also, he is willing, but I want to be sure I am recommending the right model.

He will want a FEL and belly mower, can I get some prices that others have received?

All other comments are welcome.

Thanks,
Brian

The L3430 and B2910 would be an accurate comparison. Kubota makes good stuff too.

Thank you for the reply, is the B2910 priced the same as the L3430?

Not as many bells and whistles on the B2910 so cost is less. Both the John Deere and Kubota web sites have comparisons you can check out. My preference would be the "Green Paint". Best to shop around and compare as much as possible. Test out the models and then make your choice.

Thanks again. The B2910 shows a weight of 1763 where the L3430 comes in around 3300 so there must be more than bells and whistles.

Care to elaborate on why you'd go for the "Green paint"? Just curious, as I am sure they are both quite nice.

The Kubota Grand L series are nice tractors but I feel John Deere has better logistical support, their products are more up to date, and are just built a bit better. They also hold resale value better than just about any other equipment.

I am not sure I would put a 1700 pound tractor and a 3300 pound tractor in the same class.

I'm with you, Mark. Way too much weight difference to be compared against each other. Chief musta got his thinking mixed up.
