 Ford 1710 Vs Kubota 345

I am looking at a Ford 1710 with loader for $6500 and a Kubota L345 with loader At $7000. Ford is an 83 and the Kub. is a 79. I will be using this machine primarily with a brush hog on the back and minimal loader use at the moment. Both are 4wd. I want as compact as practical as I have lots of trees to go around. Also ground is hilly in spots. I have also been quoted B7100 with hydro for $5500 no loader and wonder if I should foresake the loader for the hydro. Do any of these sound like a good deal?

I don't know anything about the Ford but I did have a Kubota
L345DT. It had a nice smooth running motor, but was hard to start when cold and the hydraulics were real SLOOOOOW. It's
not a tractor you would want to use the loader on alot.The
loader is strong you will need blast for the rear.

 Ford 1710 Vs Kubota 345

Any of them should do the jobs you want. It might be a question of whether each tractor will get the work done in an acceptable time. It's a little hard to get a sense of how much maneuvering is required from the description or if the hogging is cutting brush rather than mowing grass.

I do like my 1710, but I don't think of it as really compact around the yard. We've got two properties where we finish mow an acre each around buildings, landscaping etc. I use a riding mower because the 1710 with a 3ph mower would take more maneuvering and would leave more trimming to do. It will pretty much pivot around a rear wheel when the steering is turned to a lock, but it's not exactly a garden tractor so it does take up space. It also is heavy enough so the front tires will tear turf in sharp turns--especially in 4wd.

On the other hand, if I bought a rotary cutter it would be a 5' light duty model that would whack up to 1" saplings. Cutting heavy brush in 5' swaths may save quite a bit of time over smaller cutters. The 1710 has around an 8 gpm hydraulic pump that handles a moderate sized loader just fine, although I could be happier with the dump speeds I get from my Allied 195 loader.

One of the decision-makers might be whether the 1710 has the 12 x 4 synchromesh TX and live PTO or the 12 x 4 non-synchromesh without live PTO (the synchro TX has a shifter on the steering column). Live PTO is a plus but not a requirement for mowing. I'd price a loader for the B7100. A recent discussion here put the price of loaders around $3,000. Other decision-makers might be the dealer who you’d go to after the purchase and simply which tractor feels best.
