 L3400 - any opinions

Does anyone have opinion of this machine? I am considering buying one, but i can't get very narrow price range from dealer. I have approx 3 acres of overgrown field to maintain, as well as other typical tractor chores(i expect to use bushhog, post hole digger, FEL, etc.) I also noticed on HST that the PTO HP is only 27 - seems like a big differential....Any opinions (or suggestions) are most welcome. Thanks.....Bostock

So far all those we've sold have been great. The hydro's PTO power loss is looks like sure disaster to the novice but for people in the know it most often is the most logical choice. For the size of your property you could also consider going to the B-7800.

Thanks Art. I looked briefly at the B7800, but i wasn't sure if the HP (20 at PTO, i think?) would be enough. This will be my first tractor, and it's tough to get a straight answer on what HP i need...but it seems 24+ (at PTO) should handle field mow (some brush), fencing, occassional FEL. I need to keep researching - probably not buying until Feb/Mar. I appreciate any further input/experience....

The plus would be the lighter tractor for less turf damage and the ability to have a wider selection of powered front mounted equipment as well as mid mount. The lower price would or could mean an extra attachment. The B-7800 size often is equipped with a five foot brush hog style mower with one inch capacity. To look at a Kubota mid-mower deck for that model tractor you will find cast pulleys and a double v-style belt with a very wide back that have great life. To look at the pulley location the v in the belt is about equal to the same as the bearing height, this is far superior to other designs both in strengh and life. Not to say that if it was mowed often enough that it might not work for the task but. It would depend on what you are mowing and the conditions.

I love my L3400 HST. I think you'll find that 27PTO HP is plenty for anything you'll do with a tractor that size.

I appreciate all of your comments, it's hard to find info like this locally - most farmers only know what they have and that's it (perhaps - that's the secret to tractor happiness Smile

I would like to get the machine that can handle my tasks, without overbuying. I also don't want to buy too small and then wish for something else after 6 months. If my tasks don't change (let's assume, because none of us ever really knows), it sounds like the b7800 can handle the 3 acre rough field, and it's light enough to MMM my clean&green. (and Art points out the quality of the MMM deck system). You guys are making it tough!

I think that when comparing two similar tractors, more HP is always better, however you are comparing two different tractors. It is surely true that the B will handle a three acre field with ease. I have an L3400 HST and love it. However, I am sure that the B would be more manueverable. It seems that size and manuverability are bigger issues here than HP. Decisions, decisions...

orangefwd - you are correct. Manueverability will be very important. If the HP on that will handle my jobs, i would prefer to have the more nimble machine. As i have not owned a tractor before, perhaps that is where i need more education - what HP for what applications. Dealers are not always the most helpful, they tend to default their answers to "lets go a little bigger...". If you can suggest appropriate HP (for fencing, hogging, moving an occassional stone with a FEL, possibly pushing some light snow), it will help in my search. The dealers have been suggesting approx 30hp (engine), but from what i am learning here it sounds like i do not need as much.

I cannot attest to all of your applications, but I can tell you that prior to the L3400, I owned a Cub Cadet 17hp tractor. This machine had 2wd and turf tires but could brushog saplings in excess of 1" wide with ease using a 4ft model. The B7800 will probably handle a 5 foot brushog easily and there is the benfit of being able to use a mid mount mower.

I am considering purchasing the 7510HST.
Price is 13,900 (36 mo. 0% financing)
I have 11 acres with a 1,000 foot drive (paved)
Like the idea of Turf tires for yard mowing.

Any suggestions?
