 1980 s 35-hp Kubota

I know this is very vague, but I was informed of a Kubota for sale, early 1980's model, 35-hp 2wd for $3500. I know it depends on more than just the above info, but if the tractor is in good shape would this be a good price? Are these model Kubotas good, dependable machines? I'm just trying to find a used, inexpensive, yet adequately-powered machine for various tasks around my property. Any input would be appreciated!

Jonathan

I'd be looking at four wheel drive myself as the only way to go. I'd just be sure it is an american tractor and do what what you need. Art

I may have the only 4wd tractor in my township. My neighbours get along OK but most of them wish they had 4wd and I think their tractors go over 3,000 lbs. as well. Power steering is something else my neighbours wish for.

Anyway a person almost always can figure how to get something, or at least most of something, done with what you have. Might be easier to argue yourself into enough of a budget for a 4wd compact or if not get something heavier than a compact. I do have to keep in mind that once I was unable to back out the shed during the winter let alone do any work until I realized that I wasn't in 4wd. Check parts availability as well. I haven't had a problem yet but there's starting to be 'obsoleted parts' and backorders for my mid-80's Ford.

In another discussion we were talking about putting a loader on a 2wd compact. One of the problems of doing that is when the bucket is loaded it reduces rear wheel traction, which can make backing away from a pile of gravel difficult. A lot of weight on the 3ph will keep traction on the rear wheels but big weight on each end of the tractor puts a lot of stress on the frame when driving on rough roads.

I just thought of a technique that might help doing 2wd loader work. Instead of trying to break a bucket out of the pile and back up, curl the bucket back, float the boom and back up until clear of the pile before raising the bucket. Don't know it that'd be useful but it's something I might try, but then I just use 4wd if I'm in that situation.

Jonathan, Be aware of the grey markets as they always look like there out of the 80's. That is what I worry about the most here. If you have a desire to put a loader on later the power steering systems if available were not what they are today. Make sure you have all of what you need for tommorrow.

 1980 s 35-hp Kubota

Hi, all. Thanks for the replies thus far, and let me pass along a bit of what I'm looking for. I eventually want to buy a tractor that serves all the purposes I'll ever need (35+ hp, 4wd, FEL, etc., etc.), but at the moment I'm just not sure it's in the cards. My wife and I are expecting our first child, and my wife is seriously considering staying home after the child is born. At the moment, purchasing a new tractor could fit easily in our budget, but if she decides to stay at home with the child it will obviously impact our income. I'm at the point of needing *something* (we have about 4.5 acres out of the 12+ acres we own in grass/fields) and I also want to be able to use a box blade, tiller, etc., to do some landscape work as well as work a garden. Thus, I thought for the time being I'd buy a used tractor, start acquiring implements bit-by-bit that could be used with my (one day!) new tractor. Does this seem to be a logical approach to my situation? I've never owned a tractor, although I grew up using a Ford Jubilee my Dad owned. Any input/advice would be greatly appreciated.

For the tractor that you have asked us about it is much like an older Ford like your Dads. I would take a serious look at what you choose to buy in the future to be sure that the used one you buy will fit all the attachments you want for the new one. The loss of investment to trade all might not be freindly news.
