 JD5210-JD5310-or-Kubota-M6800

Looks like the JD5210 (45HP PTO)or JD5310 (55HP)have all the features I want in a tractor including adjustable links, sync transmission, adequate pto power, good tractor weight, diesel fill at rear, level loader with quick attach bucket, mid mount couplers, bale spear, and pallet forks. The Kubota folks recommend the M6800 (62HP PTO)as a better and more reliable alternate (with better warranty) to the John Deere and has the same features except for the level loader. I really can't find anyone that has experience with either tractor. The costs are about the same for the JD5310 or Kubota M6800 and a little less for the JD5210. All are 4WD tractors or can be bought in 2WD. I have never had a 4WD tractor and sure hope it is worth what it costs. My experience is with an older 45HP 2WD JD Tractor and a 42HP Massey MF245. I have never drove a Kubota (yet). All experiences, comments, and suggestions welcome as you don't get to buy a new tractor very often.This seems to be a little larger (but similar HP) than most compact tractors on this board. Is there a more appropriate board for the utility size tractors. These are awfully small for the big tractor agriculture board.If you want to respond direct: w5fl@flash.net

I have found the CTB to be the best placed to get honest advice

Wen, go ahead and get the 4wd. you won't regret it. Its particularly nice when you are going up or down on even a slight incline with a load in the bucket. 2wd will do the work, but 4wd makes it enjoyable. I like what I've seen of the 5000 series JDs. Haven't looked at the big Kubotas.

Wen, I didn't see your post untill today so if it isn't too late I have some advise. Buy the JD 5210 or 5310. I the only difference is the 5310 is turbocharged, the 5210 is not. Mine is a 5310 mfwd and I love it. I use it for spraying kudzu, road grading with a 7' grader blade, and some mowing. It also has a front end loader which I leave mounted all the time. The transmission is the full-sync. with a 3spd rear axel, 3fwd and 1 reverse gear transmission for a total of 9 fwd and 3 rvs speeds. The only thing I would do different is get the factory installed econo pto, which is a 2 spd pto that gives you 540 rpm pto speed at 1700 rpm when econo pto is engaged. Without the econo pto your rpms have to be 2400 to acheive 540 pto rpm. The econo pto will save you about 25% in fuel when doing work with light power requirements like mowing or spraying.

I purchased my first new tracter in mid june.i bought a 5205 J.D.I owned masseys and talked to them when i bought this one,they werent interested in dealing with me.felt like i wasnt rich enough to talk to them.I have two cousins that just 5310 J.D. and both were massey people.They felt the same way i did at massey.both live in different states so i know it wasnt the dealer.John deere was willing to work with us any way they had to to sell.we all are pleased and really like our J.D. and will never go back to massey.we all have driven ford,massey ,internationals and kabotas.would not change for any amount of money to another brand.definately get the econo pto if you do alot of mowing.5000 series J.D. are great .

Are you saying that Massey wants more for their tractors than JD? This is going to make some of the JD marketing guys sad... Smile Also, did you try out any of the 4000 series? I'd be curious to hear what you thought about comparisons between the 4000 and 5000.

prices are about the same between massey and john deere.Massey needs to get some sales people that wont to sell tracters not give history lessons on their brands when they have already been told you have owned a specific model they are trying to tell you about,and then get ticked off and dont wont to do business with you.I also went on a massey dealer web site and enquired about a tracter i was told only dealers were supposed to use that site and got mad and told me to come to their dealer ship and they would be glad to assist me.rudeness never sold me anything.Onto the 4000 series tracters are good little tracters but pricey.they serve their purpose for desired use.I however needed a heaver tracter than the 4600 and 4700 for my purpose.They are still as good as the other series of J.D. tracter.

When the Kubota 5700 is actually as close to equal if not exceeding nearly all of the JD spec's on the 5310,and you can buy a 6800 for the same or close I don't think I would have any questions other than when can I get it!

Stop reading specs and start driving tractors. JD 5000 series is tops! Will be trading in my JD4600 for a nice 5310 this spring.

Hmmm, kind of interesting. Don't know why Wen never came back and said what he bought, but if it's the only "Wen" I know of, he bought the Kubota M6800 and is tickled to death with it.
