I hope I don't get slammed for this question, but I'd really like some honest, straight-forward advice. I'm finally in the market for a new tractor--I'd like roughly 35 PTO HP, FEL, and field and finishing mowers. I've spoken to a few dealers, and they all lay claim to why their tractor is better than the other two. Who really has the best tractors in this HP range? I'm waiting a tractor to simply maintain and landscape my land, as well as other general uses. Thanks so much! (I'm posting this to all three tractor forums--I apologize if it's bad etiquette. Still learning!)

Oh, no! The color wars. Green guys like green, orange guys like orange, blue guys like blue. The truth of the matter is they're all good machines so you should buy the one you feel most comfortable with from the dealer you like most who gives you the best deal.

KW's advice is solid, and you'll find many posts regarding this subject if you do a search here. This subject reminds me of an old Irish joke, when Paddy was about to be hanged, he complained about the rope being new, the hangman's reply was, don't worry, new or old it will get the job done. Most CUT manufacturers today offer great machines, very capable of doing a wide variety of tasks very well. Find the one that suits you, for your reasons, and make your best deal. I've owned Cub Cadet, I own Deere and Kubota, they are different but they all do the job remarkably well within their designed limits.

I echo what the others said. My decision was based on my comfort and dealer. All 3 colors will do the job and each has its own unique qualities that set it apart from the others. One example is that on the blue machines their seat adjust is on an angle (as it goes back it raises also) which is good if you are tall.
My advice is to stop in at all the dealers and try them out. This way you can get a feel for the dealer as well as the machine.

I have to echo whats been said .The only way to find the best machine for you is to try them all . Try to find a machine that fits YOU . Also try to find a dealer you're comfortable with as well . to steal a quote from someone else .. "You buy atractor once ..... You live with it forever . " Shopping a dealer is as important as shopping for tractors . John

Jonathin; Before I bought my first CUT I looked at a blue one an orange one and a green one. Ended up going with green mainly because of the dealer. I'd done business there for years dealing with farm equipment and have never had but the best relations with them. I'm sure that with proper care any of the three will do most everything you'll need done. Any brand can break down, that's where good dealers shine above the crowd. Pick a dealer that's been around thru thick and thin and still is in business, ask a few of his costomers how they've been treated. He may not be the cheapest, but when push comes to shove with a service problem if he has a reputation of taking care of his costomers. I think that's 90% of your brand choice. hope this helps, Frank.

All I can say about ease of FEL removal is... If it's easier and faster that my JD, it would have to fall off and put itself back on.
