 Settled on a Kubota 2910 finally

I've been thru the mill on New Holland, Deere, and Kubota. I am either the smartest man alive, or totally confused. But I've settled on a Kubota 2910, with loader and quick attach bucket, and quickattack snow blade, MMM.. and I think I've solved my problems thus far. The tires are new to me, they are not the usual R3's, but a more agressive and useful all around tire, like on the JD 4210's I've looked at. It is a turf type tire, with a very deep, traction type tread. "Multi tread"..but not like the R4's. More like a good 4 wheeler tire, or as seen on a 4 X 4 truck..with moderately strong tread design for all uses. Putting quick attach brackets on the loader arms, for a 60 inch snow plow, power angle. Made by FFC, so I can interchange in minutes..to loading manure, or putting the blade on when any heavy snow is forecasted..MMM looks fine for my well-graded pasture, also, with a heighth reach of 7 inches..off the ground, even with the loader brackets on. Sure hope this works..cost more than Pop's first three houses when I was a kid. All the input was fantastic and helped me to avoid some serious pitfalls..in the end, I think the dealer and the service means a great deal. For anyone's information, I did see a bulletin by John Deere, that says the 40 "TEN" series is being shaken down for a bad transmission problem (I was a whisker away from buying a 4210)..it says no TEN series tractors are to be sent to the consumer unless the electronic hydro is replaced on the tractor..no kidding, I saw a copy..it was being sent to the dealers. Over all, I think for the horses and barn work, with bucket, and gravel and grading jobs, as well as clearing snow, and mowing several acres..the 2910 will do it for me. It was still a little under both NH and JD in over all "apples to apples" pricing. THanks again..for the advice and the posts that helped me to keep focused on what I NEED A TRACTOR FOR..and not be carried away with horsepower-itis.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!. So When is she due? I am sure you are going to have a blast. I know what you mean about the cost though. Everytime I walk out into the garage and see my big blue sitting there, I think " Am I nuts for doing this?" but then I hop on and fire her up and get a job done in a quarter or the time. and it's not even spring yet. Oh Yeah it's worth it.

 Settled on a Kubota 2910 finally

Thank you to all who kept me focused on what "I needed to do with the tractor. When you are intense, and seriously debating features, you seem to be confused by the facts, and by taking the advice on here, to focus on the needs I have..the uses that I'll need the tractor for...really helped me. I'd love to own a NHTC24 or 19D, or a JD 4115, or 4210..you bet. I just felt the Kubota filled my need, was heavy enough to ge the jobs done, pull that loaded ground drive spreader in snowy weather, and the NH and the JD was a little heavy for my softer ground near the marsh, when mowing..plus some tight turning areas between pastures and gates..I sure do like those tires, the Multi track I think they are..has anyone seen them? Have experience with them? I ordered chains in the deal, put on..I'll put them on the next time..((smile)).. not my favorite task.
Thanks again to all. And if anyone needs a little help with Farmall Cubs, I've restored 7 of them to showroom shape, and have rebuilt them from end to end..just sharing that.

Thanks, Art. My post included you as much as anone else for sure. I don't see how I can lose, I'm 62, and finally have power steering, loader with an 1,100 lb. lift, good down pressure for that snow blade..a thirty horse 4 banger diesel, liquid cooled, wet brakes, I can put a heated cab on it next winter..and best of all, my wife is still speaking to me!

She's due in two weeks, surprisingly, the dealer explained to me: They order a "container" off the ship from Japan, when it comes into Long Beach, Ca. The containers go to New Jersey..from there they are distributed in the eastern U.S. zone..I guess, but anyway, they get a price break on a container, a large inventory package.. so there were 4 2910's to choose from, three or four 60 inch buckets and loaders..MMM, the words..the only reason I have to wait two weeks is for the quick attach aftermarket brackets for the bucket, and snowblade..and it's going to be delivered. Loaded the tires with antifreeze solution, not calcium., instead of the ballast box in back. That's about it. Thanks again.

Congratulations on a great tractor! The waiting part is not fun. Post some pictures when she comes in. In the mean time, hopefully the dealer provided you with an owner's manual so you can read up and be ready to jump on and get down to business!

question on loader snow blade..on 2910

 Settled on a Kubota 2910 finally

Chief, are you familiar with the quick attach snow blades that are made by companies like Curtis, and FFC? adapter goes on the boom, the loader arms, rather, and the snow blade attaches there, after you disconnect the detachable bucket. I was wondering, that seems to be a "long ways" out in front of that tractor. Awkward looking, was wondering if anyone has experienced using this set-up, or if there is any feedback you can give me as to its usefulness...as I can still opt for the regular Kubota front blade with quick attach kit. I'd have to drop the loader, but it seems simple enough and the service mechanics have said it takes about three or four minutes once you understand it..maybe I should reconsider before signing those papers on an FFC Skid Loader quick-attach blade up front...so any input will help. I am wondering if it would make it too "front heavy" out there, or make maneuvering the tractor awkward..
So any input would be great..as I've never seen one in action and pictures and salesmen's reassurance are not the same as being on that seat and handling one.. so help if someone can? This is reference to my new K 2910, with the LA 402-l loader. The loader has the "power"..but I am wondering about maneuverability of the unit, with that snow blade way out there..any help?
You cannot "demo" the darn thing, because no one will go to the trouble to put the quick-kit on the loader arms to show you. Kind of flying blind here, with only pictures to guide me on it. Thanks.

Snow is a RARE event in my neck of the woods. (Middle TN) I would think Art can or some of the other folks who live in snowier climes can give you the feedback you are looking for.

In this area what seems to be the"new thing" is the box pushers like for parking lots and a blower on the back. With a front hydraulic angle blade it is so far out front that it will push the front away from the snow. When mounted on the tractor subframe they are closer to the front and able to push more with ut the front sliding.
