Hey guys (gals too). I'm new to tractorpoint. I looking for my first tractor. I have a new house on 5 acres, clear farmland, no trees. Lots of work to do with box blade & loader. Will have about 4 acres of lawn and 1 acre where garden will be. Have looked at NH, Kubota, JD, Kioti, MF, Cub Cadet, Mahindra, no chinese please (good food however). Need 60"-72" MMM, FEL & 60" box blade. Want to stay in 15K-20K range. Tractor must be Hydro Trans. Like the Kubota B2630 $18750, Kioti CK20HST $14700 & Cub Cadet 6284 with CAT engine $14500.

My personal bias would be to stick with a brand that has a good stable dealership network and a long track record. This would include Massey, Kubota, Deere, New Holland, and CaseIH. (NH and CaseIH products are basically twins except for the syling.) All are good machines but of course will vary in the little details. Try out as many as you can before you buy. Like others have said on this site before, a good local dealership is often the deciding factor for many folks.

One minor thought: you mentioned the Cub Cadet with a Cat engine. This engine is probably Caterpillar in name only. To the best of my knowledge, all Cat engines under about 200hp are Perkins-designed and are built in the Perkins plant in England. (Cat owns Perkins.) This is not to diminish this tractor at all, though. Perkins makes a very well respected line of engines that are used worldwide.

Thanks BrendonN

I have heard from more than one that a local reputable dealer is the best option on a tractor. I lean more toward Kubota; however, I don't have my mind set on one make or model just yet. JD is just too expensive. They must use $100 bills and real gold in the green and yellow paint. If any one else has any input, I'll be glad to listen. Thanks again BrendonN.

Make sure you're comparing comparable green and orange machines and not necessarily what the sales guy is selling. When I was shopping comparable Kubota & JD machines similarly equipped weren't far apart price wise.

The JD machines hace a few beels and whistles on them that make them a little more pricey. You should take a good look at the details, and decide what you need and what you want to pay for. The manufacturers all have different subtle differences to the way they do things. The Kioti CK series is probably the most comfortable, the JD's have e-Hydro, the Kubota's tend to have the best power to weight ratio, and so on. Make sure you sit on and operate the different brands. They all will feel different.

And for sure, you need to make sure the dealer is reputable. When I finished my research, I was leaning toward the Kioti CK, but I couldn't get comfortable with the dealer. He was a complete *$$ to me. I bought Kubota.

Happy tractor hunting!!

I agree the dealer is very important but also just if not more important is how you fit and like the tractor. Don't just go by what a dealer or someone else tells you go get on each machine and see for yourself.
