 BX for a B or maybe L

I need to start a little brain storming.

I'm looking at trading off the BX2230 for a larger tractor. I'd love a 3030 with cab, but, well $$$. Does anyone have any thoughts on the merits of the B7800 verses the B3030/2630? What about the L's?

I'd like to stay with Kubota, (been good to me) but if there is something else in the 30 hp range that is not a grey or Chinese, I would look too.

I traded from B7800 to L3130, Really like the 3130, Watch your implements, they are gonna be small for the 7800 and
3130.

From your pictures it looks like your present equipment is a good match to your property but I get the impression you want a backhoe!! I finally have one and I have more fun digging holes than I would have imagined. If you are going to dig out stumps then the L Series is the way to go. If not, then the B Series tractor would do the trick. There seems to be a good supply of used B Series units here in New England. The dealers tell me they were trade-ins for new L Series. A used Kubota is a better bet that a new Chinese knock-off. Good luck.

If I were deciding between a 7800, 2630, or 3030 I would probably take the 3030. It would be the most expensive, but with all the features--four cylinder engine, hydraulic PTO, and position control--I think it would be worth it. Unless you really needed a larger tractor, why don't you just get a backhoe for yours?

My property has grown from one acre to 76 acres. It takes all afternoon to just cross it with the BX!

AV8R,
I'm not that familiar with the B3030 or any of the B series but from the weight it looks like it must also be made from aluminum castings. I have a similar amount of acreage and have found the L3130 to work well for me. It's about 1400 lbs heavier than the B3030 but I don't consider it to be a really heavy tractor. I'm just thinking that you might someday also appreciate the heavier tractor for any kind of general pulling or FEL work. Weight of course would work against you if you need it for mowing lawns and such. Have fun shopping.
Dave

Yes, lawn work will be a task of the "new" unit.

I doubt that a BH will be in the cards, though. Too much money for too little use. I can rent a rubber tracked 'hoe for many, many hours befor the BH75 (or similar) would be paid for.

As anyone who has owned more than one boat or tractor will tell you (with me at the top of that list), no matter how big you think is enough, it will be too small before you know it.

The list of things that get done by tractor grows continually, and seemingly faster also, the larger the property you're looking after is.

Bigger property means bigger tasks, and more of them.

Simple things like grading a driveway suddenly go from being an hours job to a full days work, grass cutting is a 3 step job, bush-hog the wooly stuff, cut the bulk of the lawn, then trim the small stuff, edges, and around ponds, banks, and trees. The list never ends.

My strong suggestion to you would be to seriously think about stepping up to being a 2 tractor family. Get a big, 50+ hp, used loader tractor for the serious stuff, and keep the little 'Bota for the light stuff. You could probably get a second tractor for nearly what the trade up will cost anyways.

Best of luck.

Trade in is a joke, admittedly by the dealer. $9k for BX w/FEL, MMM, Bagger, BoxBlade, and snowblower. I can sell out for $12.5K easily in this neighborhood. That makes a $4k upgrade to the B7800 w/FEL and MMM (quoted at $16.5k).

Murf, do you think a 50hp with FEL is available in the $4000 range? Seriously? I'd love to do that, but I don't know if I can find one (regardless of age, hours or color).

I was thinking more along the lines of $6-8k, but you would get a tractor for the $4k, probably not with a FEL, but if you poke around your area you might be surprised.

This size of tractor is a "utility tractor" to a farmer, they typically don't get a zillion hours of use since they are not primary tillage machines.

Oh, and don't hold out for 4wd either, big tractors have big tires, and unless you get into some first class muck, you will be amazed at the traction of a big 2wd tractor.

Best of luck.
