Just a city boy here that has recently moved to the country. I have been shopping for a compact tractor. Have no clue what I'm doing but I'm learning. I'm trying to get the most for my money so.. I started with looking at and pricing the L3000 and also looked at the Deere 790 and the NH tc30 Well I liked them all but guess what? None of them will work for me as they will not fit in the garage. The rops on all of them is solid and all of the dealers say they cannot install or order one with folding rops. I guess that's one of the drawbacks on a discount model huh?

Kioti offers folding ROPS. They appear to be about the same quality as the more well known brands, but are quite a bit cheaper.

My Ford 1710 wouldn't fit in our garage either. A temporary solution was a 14' x 25' arctic shelter tent with an all season cover. Good thing the tractor wouldn't fit because my small engine flock took over the garage. The implement collection also didn't take long to spill out from the tent to plain old tarps in the yard. A basic rule of tractor owning is that the shed is never big enough.

The temporary tent solution has been going on now for almost five years. I guess it worked OK. It's a good thing the tent lasted longer than I thought it would because I would have built a way too small shed. Acquisitions are a bit calmer now and I might be able to build an adequate shed. It would be good to reclaim the garage and get tarps out of the yard. Maybe my wife's car might get a chance for the garage.

Thanks guys for the good suggestions... I did think about the kioti and researched it on the net.... but the closest dealer is just too far away. The tent story cracks me up. I can picture your yard. :-> I don't think my wife would be as tolerant as yours is... I'm amazed that she has agreed to share the garage with a tractor. She has always had the whole garage to herself and my truck sits outside. I have been rethinking my tractor purchase and think I may just size down a bit. Really looking hard at the 7500 since all I'm really going to do with it is mow and maybe move a bit of snow out of the driveway. And thanks for the cub cadet suggestion.. I'll check into that... Sam...

Sammy,

I feel your pain, Laughing out loud. I have a 30 X 30 garage with a 16ft wide by 7 foot high main door and next to it a 9ft wide 8ft high door for my boat. Since the boat will NOT sit outside nor will my tractor, I poured a 6inch thick 20 x 25 slab and built a gambrel roof garage with a 9ft high door behind my main garage. Everyone is a happy camper now. Boat and tractor/backhoe are doing fine and just love being inside. An expensive solution but worth every penny.

Jeff I know exactly what your saying. I've priced some pole barns exactly for that reason. I love that type of roof you put on your barn. I have a 12 X 16 mini barn with that same style roof. I also have a couple small hog buildings that I use for the dogs and storage. I just don't want another building in the yard and also on the tax rolls. So I'm fighting the urge....I've manufactured enough reasons to buy the tractor but putting up a building that will cost more than the tractor goes agains my (wifes) logic. Smile So I guess I will drag my feet a bit longer. By the way is there any certain time of year that Kubota seems to apply discounts or rebates to their tractors? Sam...

I bought a new L3000 this past May and it has a foldable ROPS. That doesn't matter because the turf tires I have on it allow it to fit into my garage with a couple inches to spare with the ROPS extended. Are you sure the L3000 isn't available with the foldable ROPS?

By the way, I love my L3000 4wd. Pull a 6' woods rear deck and mow some serious acreage with serious hills. Good luck.

your right...a welder, a saw-all, some angle iron and that ROPS would be FOLDABLE in a Saturday afternoon.
