 Kubota 7800 vs. JD 4310.

I am looking at buying a compact, but have not decided yet. What are the thoughts on which is better the 7800 or the 4310. I'm sure this will open up a can of worms. Keep it serious. Thanks!

These two machines aren't quite in the same class. They are both good machines but the JD 4310 is more expensive which buys you better hydraulic flow, higher lift capacity, position control hitch, more features, etc.

As a 7800 owner, I would agree. It would be closer to compare to the Kubota B2910, which has a lot of the premium features the 4310 has. The 7800 is a great tractor, but short on some usefull features.

I was thinking the 4310 was more equal to either the 3010 or 3130.

If you ask as to which tractor is better for you then we need to know what do you have to do with the tractor?

 Kubota 7800 vs. JD 4310.

I looked at both and ended up with the B7800, which I thought was a better buy for the buck. It is a now frills tractor with all you need to get the job done considering what it's built to do. I liked the JD's and was rather partial to them before I really started doing some serious comparisons on paper taking costs and needs into consideration. The Kubota came out on top. It helped that the salesman at the Kubota dealer was way more helpful and eager to get me on a test drive.

I have a 5 acre place and find it very appropriate for all my needs, mostly mowing, tilling, moving various heady objects and digging fence posts. Good luck with your decision.

 Kubota 7800 vs. JD 4310.

I would also agree that the two tractors are not in the same class. The Deere weighs 2900 pounds and the Kubota only weighs 1741 pounds...and the 2910 comes in at 1763 pounds. I have tried out both and I find almost everything better on the Deere except the price and the warranty. The Deere is much more comfortable and has MANY MORE features...some standard, some options. A couple things...Deere's mmm on these tractors do not operate with the 3 point hitch and the rear PTO does not have to be running when the deck is on. (I used a 72" deck and the final look is better than the Kubota's 60" in my opinion.) Along with that, The loader is much quicker to install, no bar from the loader going across the fuel cap, brakes on opposite side as hydro, electronic cruise control that works great (even has resume as an option), and besides that it even comes with a cup holder. The Kubota is a solid and dependable machine but I would highly recommend spending the extra to go with Deere's medium sized CUTs. The 4210 would be a little cheaper and a 430 loader fits on it even though the books do not say it does...just not quite as much hydrolic pressure to run it. On top of everything, it is green...what more could you ask for!?! I am waiting to see what the new Deeres are like before I make my final puchase however...I have my name on a used 4410 that will be traded in by the end of the year...local farmer and trucking company owner that trades every year. Looking forward to it!

My kubota doesnt have a bar going across the hood, However it does have a cup holder. If your going to compare a base model Ford Focus to a Chevrolet Trailblazer, I think I would opt for the Trailblazer also even though I am a Ford Guy.

These two tractors are definitely not in the same class of tractors! The deere 4310 in the Kubota line would be with the L-series chassis. We can push the Kubota edge a bit but not that much. If you are just looking for mainly mowing and a little loader work and snow removal work chances are the smaller B-series chassis would work fine as it to can run a 72" deck. If you have a lot of grading to do or just heavier work then get into the L-series chassis the same size as the deere.

grasgod...you must have either a BX series or an L series Kubota. Neither of these have a bar over the fuel cap and they do have cup holders. The B series like was originally asked about does have a bar over the hood and no cup holder. Like I said before, Kubota makes a very high-quality machine for the price. If you are satisfied with a tractor is good and dependable, Kubota is the way to go. If you want comfort and technology, nothing compares to Deere. All depends what you are after...
