Hi guys,

I am new to the board and am very impressed with the info. I have read. It looks like there is some sound advice here.

I am currently looking at the 2210 to maintain my walking/hunting trails as well as road bank mowing and yard mowing. I am curious to the success any of you have had with the machine. I really like the small unit so my wife can help out with mowing the yard but also like the versatility of handling a brushcutter, etc. How would it handle a 5' brushhog? Do I dare buy one without a loader? Has anyone got the dozer blade on it? Input muchly appreciated. trailmaker

5' bush-hog, never! Try something bigger or scale down your work a little.

Four foot bush hog would be maximum I think, seems like I saw a 42 incher sized for the BX series somewhere.

If so that would be even better.

You will need the FEL to counter balance the weight of the cutter, and I guarantee you will find plenty of uses for it.

I have never read a post here that said "gosh I am sorry I got a FEL, what a waste of money".

Thanks for the input thus far. My problem is this: I have a 5' brushhog but I don't have the funds for a larger tractor. I am looking for something to do lite work. Is it worth the extra money to get a larger tractor? I hate to get something that is too bulky for my yard, etc. I have ran the older 955 and it worked great with the 5' cutter. Is the 2210 that much smaller? I am having a hard time finding one to look at and test drive without making a day trip out of it. I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and do a test drive. Any other advice? Thanks again. trailmaker

Not sure of the exact size of a 955. A 2210 is in the same class as a Kubota BX, 55 inch wheelbase and 13-1400 pounds.

I think the minimum size green tractor to turn a 5 ft. hog would be the 4115 at 20 pto horses.

I Would think you would be better off selling the 5' brush hog on eBay or someplace and then buying a tractor that is suited to your needs. I use a 2210 solely for the woods. A dozer blade is out of the question in my opinion on the 2210 and probably would not be that effective on any size you are considering. The 4115 with FEL is roughly $4,000 more than a 2210. The 2210 will be hard to find in stock but in my area the 4115 is impossible to find in stock as it is not very popular in our area. Statisticly if money can be set aside I like the 4115. I seriously doubt on any of theese you are going to roll through the woods unhindered as you like. That certainly depends on your land though. I primarily use mine on trails that have been dozed. You certainly wont be plowing stumps with any of theese but as Mark mentioned the 4115 now is available with a backhoe, although I am sure it is not inexpensive. When I bought mine I capitulated a LOT about the cost of a FEL. I can honestly say I now consider a tractor without a FEL for MY needs, Useless. I use a rear blade on mine which is the one area of complaint I have on the 2210 so far. I believe the Rockshaft or 3pth on the 4010 series has pre-set drop adjustments. I think useing a rear blade and this adjustment you could set a rear blade to skim across the soil and level a area. On the 2210 when you drop it it goes all the way down and digs in. When you hit a soft area the blade digs in further and its not long before you are dragging so much dirt that you run out of steam or traction. Other than that I love the 2210 and I am a fan of not haveing a machine bigger than what is required to do the job.

Thanks guys. You definately gave me something to think about. I can see I need to do more fine tuning before I buy.
Thanks again,
trailmaker

DocsKnotInn, Are you very satisfied with using your 2210 in the timber?

trailmaker, if you have budget constraints (and don't we all) the John Deere 790 4wd should fill the bill and be able to easily handle a 5' rotary cutter. It a great but not fancy tractor that is suited to a variety of tasks. May be what you are looking for. If you are going the other way. The 4310 or 4410 would be a better choice for the 5' rotary cutter, but your budget may not accomodate those models.

I am overall estatoc with the performance of the 2210. It is a fantastic machine fore the price. If I were to do it again I would go with a 4115 or a 4210 but those are definately more expensive. I do not care for the 790 but if it fits you it is certainly worthy of consideratin, cost being a MAJOR factor. My woods are relatively flat, so It works great and I also primarily work off spots that have been dozed. In the area of my hunting property you can get a lot of dozeing done at a VERY cost effective rate.
