 Kubota BX23 vs Kubota BX1800 Review

I have 4 acres and am looking to buy a tractor to do some yard work. I never owned a tractor before but one thing I do know is that I need one because I am tired of asking my neighbor to come down with his JD to help move dirt etc.
I found two that I am looking into
Kubota BX23 w/ bucket and FEL, 54" mower and PTO Powered Bagger 245 hours on it and looks like it is in great condition
Kubota BX1800 w/ 54" mower and FEL turf tires. Not sure of Hrs
First what reccomendations could you make and second what would be a good price for these.
Any help would be appreciated
Have pic's of one that I could send

 Kubota BX23 vs Kubota BX1800 Review

BigCCC; Welcome to tractor ownership. Either of the two will do the job depending on how involved you plan to become. 18 horsepower is still in the lawnmower class far as power, but does offer the standard 540 RPM power take off and standard Category one three point hitch, so lots of attachment can be used on it,(Tiller,Rear mount finish mower, Small bush hog type cutter, Blade, etc. It will do the job but not as easily as the 23 with the same impliments. You mention dirt work, the 23 is just a bigger more rugged tractor than the 1800, and I'll guarantee that the loader will get used on a daily basis for something from moving dirt to hauling anything from point A to B, plus I'm not a Kubota expert, (I'm pretty much a Green person, John Deere, but i think they offer a backhoe attachment too for the 23's. Lots of money can be saved by buying a 3-500 hour tractor that has a maintinence record that can be verified thru a dealership or by the prior owner. I'm not a believer in E-Bay type buying, just too many crooks with stolen merchandise to deal with, I know a person who paid for the same tractor twice by buying a stolen tractor on E-Bay. By far your best route to buying is from a Kubota dealeship. Depending on the age and condition of the tractor they may offer some warranty on it. Buying privately, be carefull whom you are dealing with especially if your knowledfge of tractors is limited, make them prove to you that the tractor does not have an unpaid lein, etc. so a good dealer is going to be a big asset worth a lot to you down the road. Far as price, I don't keep up too well on the prices unless I'm interested in buying something. Othere here can help you better with that. but in the end I think I would advise to go with the 23 or it's equivilant in a tractor from the big three, CaseIH-New Holland, Kubota, or Deere, they will be here for the long haul for service and parts down the road. Don't get stuck on a particular tractor just because it is the first ad you saw. Half the fun of tractor ownership is shopping for a tractor, check all three you may end up with sometning else you like better. Enjoy what you buy. Frank.

A BX 23 should have the backhoe on it if not I'd be really leary of it. They are both good tractors and have performed well. We have over five hundred of them out with the highest hour one that I've seen over 3500 hours on it and still mowing strong.

BigCCC,

No matter which tractor you decide to purchase, I want you to beware of the fact that you have quite a steep learning curve ahead of you. Operating a tractor can be very dangerous to a person who has never had any experience on one.

Go easy at first. Get to "know" your tractor and its limitations. Hydraulics and PTO shafts have absolutely no respect for human life. Please don't attempt to learn anything the hard way. There have been many people before you who have had accidents, and those that lived through them have shared their experiences with others.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF TRACTOR SAFETY is more than just suggested reading. It's available on the internet. Please look it up and read it. If you have any questions, please ask. The members of this group will gladly help you.

Now.......if it were up to me, I'd choose the 23 over the 18. The BX1800 is very near the bottom of the Kubota tractor series. It barely qualifies as a tractor. I don't want you to find yourself regretting your purchase. You should enjoy your tractor, but I'm confident that you won't enjoy the little BX1800 nearly as much as you will the 23, especially with four acres to care for.

No matter which one you choose, I want to welcome you to tractor ownership. You'll find yourself in a whole different world. That television of yours might now last long enough to hand it down to your grandkids! hehehe.

ENJOY THE OUTDOORS.......buy a tractor!

Joel

Have you looked at the BX24? I am sure the money you would spend on the BX23 the 24 could not be that far off...
