 Very Impressed w 2210

(I also posted this on another tractor forum)

A local dealer brought out a 2210 yesterday for a test and demonstration at my residence. There is not a level space on the 3 acres, and many of the grades are easily 30-45 degrees; there is 1 acre of grass on large slopes.

The 2210 performed flawlessly crawling up and down (vertically) the worst 50-75 foot high grades, and it didnt even have any front or rear weights. R4 Industrial tread was used.

To get a feel in the seat as a novice tractor owner I also traversed the property and slopes and felt "confident" behind the wheel even though some of the slopes and turns provided an adrenaline rush and fair amount of pucker!

I was extremely impressed witht he 2210 (and the local dealer!), on Monday the Kubota dealer will be bringing out a BX2230 to test/demo and I will be making my purchase decision on Wednesday.

Both CUTs will be outfitted with a FEL, 64" MMM, Snow Blade, R4 tires, and weights. For the 2210 I will be getting an optional 3rd party Hoe and for the Kubota I may end up getting the BX23.

If anybody has any insight, help, suggestions or opinions they would like to offer I welcome them as this will be our first-ever tractor and a large purchase.

Thanks in advance,

Mike

I am very satisfied with my 2210. However it has a 2 piece frame and I would not but a backhoe on it. You would be better off renting one if your not going to use one frequently, IMO, because you will be limited to what you can do with one as opposed to a true compact tractor. If your really set on having a backhoe on a sub-compact, you would be better of with the Kubota BX 23.

If your engaging the "pucker factor" when working your property, then make sure whatever tractor you buy has wheel weights and ballast, and use your head when you are operating your machine.

Remember that there's a world of difference in traction between wet and dry conditions. If you try going up those slopes when they are wet you could have a pants-soiling trip back to the bottom.

What exactly are you guys referring to a "2 piece" frame?

yeah... I know how to count past one. I guess your saying that the 2210 frame is bolted togother meaning the frame rail(s) is/are made of 2 or more pieces?

I just looked at the IPCs for the 2210,4110,4310,4510, and 790 on JD parts website. All of the frames appear to be constructed form multiple sections. What am I missing here?

If I remember correctly, my F-250 Superduty had a 2 piece frame rail. The front part where the engine mounted was bolted on the the aft portion. I might me wrong.

The BX23 has a backhoe frame that is built into the tractor and loader frame and is a four point hook-up. This is nearly the same hook-up that is used on the commercial machines and has proven to be rugged. The good part is it gives the tractor the same ground cleareance as a 30 plus horsepower compact tractor with a lower subframe. The hoe is mounted close to the rear of the tractor so it doesn't hit while going on and off trailers as much as the lower subframe units do. The unit can easily be removed and reinstall the three point hitch.

Do you have a brand name or a web site for this "3rd party hoe"? I would like to take a look at it.

When I get the quote from the local JD dealer I will post the 3rd Party Hoe Mfgr they are proposing.

Answer to some posts:

Yes, no "honey-do's" on 20+ degree slopes due to dew!

Will be getting 40# front weights and some new type of liquid in back R4 tires for the rear and a ballast box.

Question: would having the rear tires weighted with liquid provide a better or worse center of gravity when going up the steep slopes?

What is your collective opinion on keeping the FEL on or off during so as to give it more front-end weight when mowing?

Again, any ideas or insights much appreciated.

(hmmmmmm, the wife just added another few mill to my accidental life insurance... !!)

Thanks,

Mike

Update:

Kubota dealer came out, saw the property and bowed out. Said that the BX series (or any other Kubota) would not be able to traverse the property and do it safely.

I respected their opinion and hold them in high regard.

Just curious, did the 2210 have the FEL on? And, what was the degree of slope you were “transversing”? 20degree?
