 Kubota?? What to buy?

A big California Howdy to all in tractor land.

I have bought two tractors which don't meet my needs. Just trying to get out cheep! Now I want to sell the two and buy something which will do the job. I have acres of trails that need managing and clearing. I have brush to remove and grass to keep cut. I need to maintain my 1 mile gravel driveway and clean out the stable. What size machine do I really need? What is important. I have been told by a friend that Hydrostatic drive is a must. I have rolling hills and steep inclines with rocks. My first two tractors do not do hills well. Could anyone point me in the right direction? Most folks around here have Kubota's so I am guessing that is the way to go. But Kubota has so many different models and sizes. HELP PLEASE!

What kind of tractors did you buy that DIDN't meet your needs. Then we can see what doesn't work and go from there.

 Kubota?? What to buy?

Hi:

I bought an old 30 something JDeer with lots of attachments. But it is only good on the flat.

So I bought a Ford 9N, '49 I think. Not enought power to run the attachments. Too hard to turn around with discs etc. Hard to operate and hard to repair. I am not a mechanic.

Ok, now we got something to go on. Seems to me you need a tractor in the 30 hp class. 3 good choices to look at would be the 4000 series JDs and the 790 gear tranny JD, the B-7800 Kubota or Grand Ls, or the TC30 in the New Holland line. That should get you started in your search. All will do the job. Your job is to choose a tranmission, Hydrostaic or gear. I assume diesel and 4 wheel drive are your requirements.

Do you think you need a 4 wheel drive? Will you put a loader on or possibly have wet areas you need to work in?

Yes, I think I need a loader and 4WD. I live just a few miles from Sutter's Mill where gold was first discovered in Coloma. There are mines and tailings all over my property. Even an old stamp mill. I would like to move some of those rocks and make a rock wall. So I do think I need a fairly powerful machine. But I have small narrow areas like around my orchard where I need to mow the grass and disc up the garden. I also plan to install wine grapes. So I will need something to mow the grass down those narrow rows. What kind of mower would work? Thanks everyone for the advice, I sure need it, after messing up twice!

I have half of what you need and it's for sale just over the hill in Carson City. Kubota BX22. It is 48 inches wide and comes with a loader, backhoe and extra stuff.

Shoot me an e-mail if you are interested.

Do you think that the weight of the machine would be an issue? Is the mowing you will be doing with a 3 point groming mower or mid mount mower?

I maintain about a 1/2 mile gravel drive with my 7800 and a box blade. Can't find a thing to complain about the tractor it's done all I've asked of it, but having worked for CAT I know the limits of equipment.

I do like the hydrostatic, particularly when using the loader. Beats the heck out of my the old JD collar shift on my fathers farm.
