 jd 3203 vs Kubota L2800

I'm trying to decide between a jd 3203 and a Kubota L2800. I plan on getting it with a FEL. I have been qutoed 16k for the Kubota and 16-17k for the JD. How do these prices sound?

Are there suggestions on one over the other?

Thanks!

I am new to this site, in fact this is my first reply. I just bought a new JD 3320, at that time I was quoted 15,200.00 for a 3203. Sounds to me like you are getting decent prices.

 jd 3203 vs Kubota L2800

Well you are not really comparing apples to apples here as the comparable tractor to a 3203 is an L 3400 at least as far as Kabota thinks, as thats how they compare them on their website. The JD tractor is a little longer, and little wider and little heavier when you spec them out. The Kabota has 2 more horsepower in the 3400, and it shows down at the PTO as more. The JD has better preasures hydro wise, and it shows up in all the lifting specs,1868 vs 1435 at the 3 point hitch. One thing a person needs to be careful of here is that the 3203s are often advertised at just under 16 grand as a price leader, and that is with a Standard 300 series loader ................. DONT buy that loader, as it is the standard loader on a JD 790 and you wont be happy .... it only lifts about 850lbs . The 300X series lifts the same as the Kabota or about 1200lbs or so. And if you want to get the most outta your 3203, have them install the CX 300 series that lifts 1600 lbs. There has been alot of comments on forums here on the internet, about the 3203 not lifting as much as the other 32 hp tractors; and it all came from people buying them with the little 790 loaders on them???? The little 2800 Kabota is a fine little tractor, and a good friend of mine bought one used with 13hrs on it in MINT condition for 12 grand, and I tryed it out, and had to say that compared to the L3400 it is WAY low on power to run a hydrostatic transmission......... 29hp and hydro just dont get it........... and even 32hp in the 3203 is minimum. I thought that the 34hp Kabota worked sweet with the hydro but the little 29hp showed its weakness when we put it to work.............. as far as money goes if you shop hard you can buy a 3203 with an X series loader that lifts 1200lbs for say high 15 teens. You will pay 18,500ish for the L3400s and that was my choice after tying them out; but the $2300 savings on the JD with a heavyer loader swayed me to the "Greenline"
I bought the 3203 with a CX300 series loader, HD 73" Bucket,Block heater, and they loaded the rear tires with Rimguard for low 16's out the door..............
In short if you like a 2800 Kabota tractor that is a heck of a nice size, but if you want a hydrostatic trans then I would advise you to look into more horsepower???
