 Kubota 7800 vs john deere 4210

We are upgrading from a Ford 8N. We want to buy new and have 15,000 to 18,000 to spend. We manage 40 acres, and will mostly use a bush hog and front loader. I like the Kubota for its reputation and my husband likes the John Deere for its comfort. Any thoughts/opinions are most welcome....even blatant bias -- we're open for all ideas.

A better size/weight comparison would be the 7800 vs. JD 4115 and Kubota L2800 vs. Deere 4210.

 Kubota 7800 vs john deere 4210

Both Kubota and Deere play the game on their websites of comparing tractors that aren't necessarily the best matchup. In the case of the B7800 vs. the 4210, the Deere has better hydraulic flow and lift capacity, a position control hitch (easier repeatability than Kubota's quarter inching valve), and more creature comforts than the B7800. Both are fine tractors, but the 4210 is sometimes thought to be a little underpowered for it's size and the 4310 is a better balance of power and weight. The 4210 has the same hp as the B7800 but weighs 800 lbs more. As DRankin said, a 4115 would be a better match. Opinions? Both are good, shop for the dealer you feel most comfortable with.

 Kubota 7800 vs john deere 4210

I agree with the previous comments, but I am a 7800 owner and love the tractor. The power to weight ratio is awsome, but the 1/4" valve is a little more cumbursome to use than position control. For what you described your uses as, it probably isn't an issue. I have beome more accustomed to the 1/4" valve, but it was an adjustment for me. Given a choice, I would get the position control, but wouldn't give up the tractor over it.

The 4210 really is a bigger and heavier tractor than the 7800. Drive them both, talk to the dealer. Get an all around comfort level for both product and dealer. I'll keep my 7800, it's a great machine.

 Kubota 7800 vs john deere 4210

I went through the same process last year and ended up with a B7800. After one year, moving 300 yards of fill and topsoil, plowing snow, dragging out downed trees, digging postholes, and whatever else I can't say enough good things about it.

I compared the 4115 to the 7800 and bought based upon the total cost and the dealer. My Kubota dealer knew equipment, the local JD guy sold expensive lawnmowers to farmer wannabes with 2 acre lots.

I really don't think you could go wrong with either one. For me it was price that clinched the deal. I could live with the JD dealer not knowing much because I knew what I wanted and needed to get the job done.

 Kubota 7800 vs john deere 4210

For more accurate comparisons for comfort I'd be looking not at the value tractors of kubota but the B-2910 and the L-3130 which are full featured tractors. You still should wind up with in your price range. All companies will try and cloud the issues or to make there tractors look better on paper. It is in the field that the real performance comes in on a tractor. There are none created equal there!

Ok,

Here is what you do. Test drive both a B2910, L3130 and a JD 4310 making sure all have the attachments you want. These tractors are about the same price but I think you will find the John Deere much easier to work with. The loader for the Kubota (B series-LA402) has this annoying cross bar that goes directly over the fuel cap?? After talking with my dealer about this matter he informed me that many people have smashed the hoods with this bar when taking the loader on/off.. Also regarding the Kubota loader you have to remove these pins in the sides removing them usually is not that hard but to put them back in will usually require a rubber mallet. The JD has one lever you touch to remove the loader and putting it back on does not require pins. I have a B2910 so I know what I am talking about it is not fun and wish I had the JD. Both the 4210 and 4310 JD have more torque than the B series tractors don't be fooled by just looking at hp look at torque instead. Good luck.

Both are good machines, but I think the deciding factor as most have stated would be the dealer. My Kubota dealer was very honest and never put down another brand of machine whereas the Deere dealer in my area wouldn't even return a phone call. If you take a poll here, most of the people would tell you the dealer was the deciding factor. Paying a little more for a good dealer could save you several thousand dollars down the road.
As far as the annoying crossbar on the 7800 & 2910 that someone referred to, it is no problem as long as your read the instructions. It is a little more difficult to refuel using a can but it gives added strength to the loader setup. I take my loader off every week to mow and haven't had any problems. The guy who is complaining about the crossbar on the loader is the same one who complained about removing the mid mount mower. Some people are not happy about anything.
Good luck and have fun test driving.
