 b2910 versus b7500 stability and value

I am trying to decide between a 7500 and a 2910. The 7500 is brand new, the 2910 has less than 150 hrs on it. I will use the unit for bush hogging on reasonably steep field side hills. Does anyone have any comments as to which unit will be more stable. The 7500 has wheel adjustment to increase the rear width, however, I have not been able to identify the maximum width that will result. The 2910 has no adjustment (that I know of) and the tread width is 53 inches wide. At this point, I am leaning to the 2910, hoping to buy used for around 10-11,000 as compared to a new 7500 hsd for 10,000.

Thanks

Mark

I think the 2910 is the only choice you have.

Art, why do you say the 2910 is the best choice.

Thanks,

Mark

 b2910 versus b7500 stability and value

I owned a B7500 hydro with a loader and belly mower for nearly 3 years. It's a great little tractor. I recently traded up to a B2710 just this past summer, and not to take anything away from the quality of the B7500, but the B2710 seems like twice the tractor.

The only difference between the 2710 and the 2910 is the Hp rating and a few plush creature comforts. Size wise they are identical.

I would suggest to you that you should go ahead and buy the 2910. With 150 hours, it's just barely broke in, and will last you for many years to come. From my own personal experience, the stability characteristics of the 2 tractors seem similar but not identical... the 2710 (2910) seems to be a hair more stable.

One draw back with the B7500 is that when you put a good size implement on the back of it (say a brush hog) without the loader, the front end gets very light and steering control is greatly reduced. For a while I had a backhoe (about 1000 lbs.) on the B7500 and even with the loader attached I could easily pick the front end of the tractor of the ground with just a good heave-ho... made it very difficult to navigate the tractor on uneven, muddy, or sloped ground. I would suggest to you that the few added inches and pounds that the 2910 has over the 7500 will go a long way in stabilizing the tractor. The larger rear tires on the 2910 will greatly increase the smoothness of the ride when your in a really bumpy field as well.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask... there's alot of experience here at the ctb.

If you shop around you can get the 7800 which is the 2910 without the bells & whistles (better seat and adjustable steering) for about the same price.
