 7500 vs BX22

Hi

Last fall we purchased a seven acre property which had been left unattended for a couple of years. There are rocks to move, post holes to dig, a few stumps to pull, and ravines to fill.

I thought the BX22 would do, but my Kubota dealer says that for what I want to do, I ought to get the 7500. I checked the specs on the Kubota page and they both appear to have the same horsepower, so I am wondering if the 7500 is really worth the extra price, or if the dealer is just angling for more money. This will be my first tractor, so does anyone have any comments?

Thanks,

TB

 7500 vs BX22

After working with a couple of customers with the BX 22 I have much more respect for it then I thought I could give it. I to, like power and size but have seen the work accomplished by these little units and have been impressed. It is very hard to say that one will do what you need to have done not knowing exactly the job. I do feel they are built for your size property. Many times we start out to big and have to scale down later or vise-versa start out to big and then have to scale down. What you have said for a description wouldn't rule one out. You might want to think as to how quickly you might want to have all the work done. If speed is not of concern then maybe for your enjoyment the BX would do it unless your rocks are in the half ton range.

 7500 vs BX22

TB, good for you. You already figured out how to compare models in an objective manner.

You assessment is correct, there is little to differentiate between the BX22 and a backhoe equipped B7500. There is a bit more ground clearance on the 7500 but I am not sure if even that disappears when it has the backhoe installed.

Maybe Art can address that aspect.

I have had my BX since last September and only one time did the ground clearance become a problem. I tried to drive over a pile of loose dirt (dropped by a dump truck) instead of around it and it high centered on the top of the pile.

It was stupid, but some guys like to test the limits. The fact that it got to the top of the pile will say something in the first place.

I later tried the same thing with my Deere 4100, which has more ground clearance than a B7500. It buried itself in the approach to the pile, and didn't make it to the top.

As Art pointed out, a lot of folks underestimate what can be done with a BX22, but none of them actually own one.

Ask those of us that actually use one. I will say this: the B7500 is not an upgrade to the BX22. If I felt the need to upgrade I would START with the B2710 and go up from there.

 7500 vs BX22

Although I do not have the experience and would be considered a novice compared to Mark & Art, I do own the BX22 and I am more than satisfied with it. I bought it to do many of the things you mention. I used to hired a backhoe every year to do some of the things around my lot that with a shovel and wheelbarrow would be way to much. So far it has perform better than I thought. You have to be patient with the larger tree stumps but they will come out.
It is my suspicion that your dealer can get his hands on a B7500 alot easier than the BX22, but again thats just my guess.

Thanks a lot for your comments. It's nice to get unbiased feedback.

It sounds like my initial hunch was correct.

I appreciate your help on this one,

TB

 7500 vs BX22

I have been looking at the smaller Kubota's myself. One item I can find right now is that I believe the BX22 has a "Limited Cat 1" three point hitch where as the B7500 does not. I have read somewhere that the 3 pt hitch is too low to lift a Post hole digger up high enough. In my area there is a 1500-2000 difference between the two.

Nonsense. It will lift it just fine.

I hope I am wrong. I was wondering why the Kubota web site doesn't show a post hole digger for the BX, but does for the 7500. I took another look at the web site and they also don't show a rear snowthrower.

The sales brochure shows a BX with a PHD and I own a Gearmore digger that works well on my BX.

I suspect the reason they do not show a rear blower on the BX is because they want to sell you their front mounted blower package.

Do you have access to a dealer?

Yes well within 30 miles, but we really didn't talk about the BX. They also pushed the 7500. Don't carry the 7400.
