So many tractors, so little time! I am looking to buy a new compact tractor to maintain 8 acres of finish mowing at a rural residence. In addition I will be doing some light landscape work and snow removal on a 400ft. lane. I am looking at the Kioti DK35, Kubota L3400 and New Holland TC35. From what I have read, just about any way I go would be a good bet, however, I am looking for insight from you the experts with regards to maintenance (I'm not mechanical), easy to operate and change attachments, Hydrostat or not (acreage is wide open with minimal trees), and what is the best bang for my buck. All 3 units have local representation. Any advice is greatly appreciated - Thanks!

All are good choices. The biggest and first choice should be the dealer and mechanical service after the sale. I learned the hard way, if you have a dealer that loves your money but your on your own after they get your wad of cash. I would lean toward the 3400 just because I had one, loved it and had no problems. As far as hydro or std shift, if you are plowing and not using the bucket alot for piling snow the std will be fine and will save a few bucks. I know the 3400 has good lift capacity on the bucket and 3 point, it did have a two stage clutch for mowing (push part way down to shift but the mower keeps running) unless you push down the other half. But as I said, most of all service service service.

I have the TC30, and it works great for me. I also have 10 acres, and it does exactly what I need. I have FWD and the front end loader, and it works great. I would also recomend going with the 9 x 3 trans. to save some money. One of the main reasons that I got the TC30 was because it is so easy to work on. But as said earlier, one of the most important things to think of is service from your dealer. Get to know them, and ask all the questions that you can think of.

A Hydro Transmission is the best way to go, especially for someone new to Tractors/Equipment. You will find later on, after some experience That extra 1000 to 1500 $$ you spent for a Hydro was well worth every penny.

I also say hydro is the way to go. The only way to choose tractor is to go get on all three and which you like the best.

Whatever you choose, go hydro. Whether mowing, plowing, landscaping, grading,...whatever it is you're doing, a hydro will be good. No clutch, just push down to go as fast or slow as you want. I have had both...hydro is the biggest time saver you can buy...I would rather have a 54" deck with hydro than a 72" deck manual. (I mow 4 acres.) It is much more difficult to move things only an inch or two with manual. Drive the tractors, talk to the reps, talk to others who have bought locally. Most of all, enjoy your purchase but don't rush into anything...a couple extra weeks could save several years of wishing.
