 Kubota 3010

I have been comparing the 3010 and JD 790. The 3010 does have some nicer features and seems to be a bit beefier but to stay within my price limit and to compare to the 790 I can only look at a 2wd model. Will 2wd on this size tractor be sufficient for light loader work and mowing (I could add rear weight if necessary) or would I be better off with a 4wd 790 for about the same price.

You will be much happier with the 4wd 790 over a 2WD 3010. The extra traction of 4wd cannot be compensated for by adding the rear weights. I have a 790 and it a proven, solid tractor made by Yanmar. It is also smaller and more maneuverable than the 3010. What about a 4WD 3000 as a compromise?

Many people consider 4wd almost an essential for a compact tractor. Among other things, 4wd makes a tractor more stable (safe) on hills. The smaller area of tire ground contact with compact tires does limit the traction no matter how much ballast is piled on. If the mowing is finish mowing, then chances are that the tractor will have turf tires, and then there's really not much traction for any type ground engaging work in 2wd. The thing about tractors is that most people keep them for a long time. You never know what you might want to do with a tractor in 20 years, and having to work around a severe limitation like 2wd may not be much fun. Having said that, I do spend a lot of the summer chugging around in 2wd doing loader, backhoe and forklift work. However, I do use 4wh if I have much weight on the 3ph forklift. Most of these times my Ford 1710 works just fine in 2wd even with turfs. However, to illustrate the traction problem: Last winter I engaged the 3ph snow blower to blow my way out of the shed as usual. It backed-up a little and the wheels started spinning. Took me a moment to realize that I had bumped it out of 4wd. Snow blowers don't need much traction, but even that wasn't there in 2wd.

A comparison of the 790 and the L-3000 is a better match. For the size of the tractors we do sell some 2 wheel drives but the numbers are few and we would not order one in for stock. For the most part in this area if the front drive axle is worth 1000 new you would lose double that at trade-in time.

I looked at both the JD 790 and the Kubota L3000. The price quoted by the dealers were fairly close, within a few hundred dollars. The major difference was the 3 point hitch working weight. The JD 790 has a lift capacity of 813 pounds, the Kubota is 1435 pounds. To me that is big difference. The Kubota has 16" front tires and the JD 790 has 14". Both are good tractors.

Thanks for all the input. I was at my JD dealer yesterday and he has a 2000 4300 Sync-Reverser 4wd with 420 loader that I can get for $16,000 and I think this may be a good compromise as well.

HST probably is desirable if a lot of loader work is anticipated. However, a used tractor with gears was part of my compromise. Gears may seem like a pain, but I end up sort of liking them. It was a compromise I can live with. I'd rather shift gears for twenty years rather than find myself at the mercy of 2wd traction problems. Within the compromise, a synchronized reverse is highly desirable, and I suppose the forward gears in each range are synchronized as well. I have four ranges, and three synchronized forward gears and reverse in each range. The four reverse gears provide fair control of ground speed, which is especially important when working in reverse with a PTO implement like a 3ph snow blower. One thing though: It's important to develop technique that does not rely on feathering the clutch. It's tempting to feather the clutch when doing loader work with gears.
