 JD 790 or Kubota L3000DT

I'm trying to decide which one. Both have FEL, 4wd. I have both priced within $300. I have 15 acres. I will mainly mow the pastures, move dirt piles, spread gravel and stump pulling. Please give me insight as to durability, maintenance, and general comments. I'm leaning more for the JD 790. That is why I posted in this forum. Thanks!

I don't know much about the L3000dt model, But I can say that the 790 is one heck of a torky unit for the buck. It has done all I ask of it so far on my little 40 acere piece,repaired pond, drag timber,cut brush,cut trails through timber,move dirt, grade road,pull stumps, worked up 3 acers for deer plots, and so on. As I stated I don't know how the L3000dt compares but i think you would be more than happy with the 790 to work your 15 into shape. I've only got about 38 hrs on the clock so far but it has giving me no problems yet.TOUGH UNIT FOR THE BUCK!!!! best of luck in choosin yours. forgot to mention the down fall's I've come across so far not to roomy , and the machine runs out of traction far before power is used up.added weight really helps get the most out of it, beings it's a 2100lb. 30 hp unit.(lot of power for it's weight).

Make sure you try both and see which is more comfortable.
No offense to 790 owners but I found the 790 uncomfortable.
The operator area seemed to cramped,seat to high ,felt like I was riding on the steering wheel.
I felt the Kubota 3000 was more roomy and more compfortable,with higher lift capacitys(my opinion)

Also check out the Kioti 3054.Around the same price as the 790 and 3000 but has foward/reverser and syncronized tranny.The 790/3000 do not.

Gotta agree with wolbert at least as far as makeing sure you take the time to test drive. For some reason this is a step a LOT of folks seem to skip. If the dealer wont let you drive it just go down the road. The hardest part is finding a good dealer not a good tractor. All of the above are great models especially for the $. I have seenthe Kioti but not driven as they were heavier than I wanted to tow. I find the step through opetrator area on the JD suoperior to the Kubota butt I have a big gut. Laughing out loud. The Kioti is a WHOLE lotta machine for the buck. A lot of peolpe say that the bota is a lot cheaper than JD. I never found that to be true but the Kioti is truelly a great buy. I'd love to put one to the test.

Thanks for all the replies. I will continue to make my decision and of course I will test drive all of them before I decide. The JD dealer had a sand pile to test the FEL and I thought that was great. I will also look at the Kiote if I can find a dealer.

I would look at every tractor in the range of what you want and can afford that I could. For the big three, I would also check out New Holland TC30, especially if you might want a hydro. Others to check out would be the Branson/Century and Mahindra for Korean tractors. At least when you do make your decision, you won't have any second thoughts or regrets.
