 Update on Messed up FEL

A couple wks or so ago, I posted about messing up my FEL. Well, good news! It wasn't as bad as I thought. It's all fixed now. Apparently the strain I put on it caused a rupture in the power steering lines, which I had replaced. It's running fine now. I'm really starting to think I want a BX23 now (I've got a BX2200). I love digging in my pasture with this thing. Either BX23 or 7800, can't make up my mind. Anyhoo, thanks for the support and comments!

Glad to hear you're up and running again. The "bigger is better" saying usually holds true when talking about tractors. Go for it!

Tractors are like boats. The longer you're on one, the smaller they get. I traded a Sub-compact for the B7800. What a difference. I think the Subs are great machines, but just going to the 7800 made a big difference in what I was able to do.

I agree, go for it.

Thanks for the advice. The 2200 is GREAT mowing, I've got about 3 acres I keep mowed, plus a path in the 7 acres of pasture. Only drawback is in the pasture it's a rough ride when bushhogging or anything else. The BX23 has a backhoe, which would be SO nice-so I'm trying to decide is a bigger tractor with FEL and mower better, then hopefully add BH later? Wish I could afford both. The 2200 is a very tough little tractor though.

I had a BX2200 for about a year and put 120 hours on it. Bought it to mostly mow with. Was able to do so much more than I expected with fel that I just traded it for B7800. With wet weather I have only driven it into tractor garage. Looking forward to dry weather.

I would totally agree with anyone choosing to go to a bigger tractor if they have a small compact. The 7800 is a very nice unit but I would opt for the 2910 due to better lighting, position control, and other small features. The 7800 and up can run the 72" deck which is wonderful. I personally have a JD 4410 and was planning on buying a 4110 or 4115 until I tested a 4410 to see if I liked a 72" deck...I ended up buying it instead. The turfs do great on the lawn and even though the tractor weighs 2900 pounds. Bigger is definately better in this case...but then I only have a few things to mow around...mostly four acres of back and forth. It is a great ride!

 Update on Messed up FEL

I always kind of laughed to myself when I first saw the tiny BX23. Now that I own one I am totally amazed at the capability of this machine. I have dug over 1000 feet of drainage ditch 2 to 3 feet deep in a swamp that eats anything heavier alive. The tires on the BX23 would stay on top long enough to lay 2x10's down under the stabilizers. Another nice thing is you can stay in the backhoe seat position lift the stabilizers and front bucket and hit the big go pedal with your hand and move the BX23 in seconds. Try that on a bigger machine. I told my Kubota dealer what I was wanting to do and asked him about something bigger and he kept telling me go with the BX23 even though he did'nt have one in stock. He had every Kubota but the BX23 and could have easily sold me something bigger. The BX23 may have its limits but if it won't do the job your probably going to have to hire something bigger then a 30hp machine to get it done. I also own a 35hp Jinma for the heavy pulling but so far the BX23 has'nt needed any help.

Yep. The BX23 would definitely have some projects waiting for it. I've got a very boggy spring area in my pasture I'd like to dig a trench for. Also, there's a section with where the creek runs into some brush that just STAYS stopped up. It helps promote the misquito as the Ga State bird. I really appreciate the input of you guys on this. I've got a while to decide. Lack of $ causes longer analyze time I guess.
