my choices are down to the jd 790 and kubota l3400 my real question on the kubota is are they reliable and trust worthy. my family owns big tractors (100 to 150 hp)and they are all john deere, but i really don't know much about the small tractors and i'm concerned if the 790 will have the power that i need because there is a 7hp diffrence and the 790 price 14,600 r4 tires and loader and kubota price 15,800 r4 tires loader and hydrostatic transmission. Need help bad.

You don't have to worry about reliability with either brand. One reason I picked JD over Kubota was because the local Kubota dealer sucked, but Kubota builds good stuff.

I would 2nd Ken's reply. I don't think you will be disappointed with either tractor. Just a side note on the Deere 790. I think a more accurate comparison if you can compare the 790 and L3400 would be the Deere 990 and the L3400 in my opinion. The 990 is also a very stout and reliable machine as well for not that much more money. The L3400 HST with 27.5 pto hp vs. the 990 4WD gear shift with 35 pto hp. at an MSRP cost of $16,879. You should be able to buy the 990 for around 10% to 15% off MSRP, which would put the two machines at about the same price. The 990 4WD is a little bit large machine so I am not sure if would work for or against your intended application. I think 35 pto hp is a very versital pto hp range that would cover a wide range of applications and allow you to expand into future applications. Anyhow, good luck and let us know what you decide. Bottom line is that you are the one who needs to feel satisfied and comfortable using whichever machine you decide on. Again, I don't think you will be disappointed with any of them.

I'll thrid their thoughts. Although I'm a JD owner, I would not have concerns about quality or reliability for a Kubota tractor. If I didn't have overriding reasons for the JD (wife), Kubota would have been very seriously considered.

deere88, I ordered a jd790 and at the last minute, changed to the jd990. The 990 will do any job that you need to do. This is a tuff tractor.

I'm not sure about the new 'Botas, but I've had two JD 770's(older versions of 790) and they are the best cold starting diesels I've ever seen. They have a intake air warmer but never had to use it even down to -10F. The other thing I like about the JD is that its gear drive. Simple reliable, built to last. The 770/790 is the modern equivalent to the old Ford 8N, they will be around for years after the newer all electronic bells and whistle tractors have been melted for scrap.

We have a Kubota L4310 hydrostatic (bought used with ~ 220 hours) and its performed fine. Another poster noted that the Kubota dealers were not up to par. I found the reverse in central NH. So it's important to know about the dealer / service network. My uncle bought Fords back in the 1970's but I understand that Kubota and JD and Massey Ferguson import from Japan. Ergonomics are important too - try the fit.
