I have lurked here for a while now and have changed my mind several time on which unit I will buy. Kioti CK 20 I thought was going to be it until I heard in hilly areas there MIGHT be a power issue with the 20 hp hst. The ck25 is still a way off. I the thought the 7510 or 7610 Kubota would be my best choice but it was soon pointed out to keep costs down the rear-end was aluminum not cast iron and if you compare Kubota to Mahindra 2015 the weight is much lighter. Prices on the of Kubota and Mahindra are real close.
This model is made by Mitsubishi in Japan and never went to India. I was told this model was a Cub Cadet and a nearby dealer said he has both in stock side by side. The Cub is $2000 more and has a 2 not 3 year warranty.
Is the cast iron important?
Dose Mitsubishi have good products?

The one difference between Kubota and Mihindra is the center pto IS 2000 RPM where kubota I think shows 2500 on Kubota.
Can the gearbox on the mid mount mower make up this difference to make the tip speed equal?
Is this even important?????
Time to write the check is near. Still NOT sure who to write it to. Any imput is welcome.

Oh yea, the mid mount mower is American design and made on the Mihindra.

Speaking to the cast iron v. aluminum axle issue, I don't think it matters. A small old-school voice in me says cast iron is better, but the engineers know what they're doing with aluminum these days. You don't hear of failures on either type very often, and failures are nearly always caused by abuse.

There have been many changes in the past twenty years as far as tractor design improvements and some of them are still being down played. Many parts from twenty to thirty year old tractors are being discontinued. Some may again be built if it turns out to be a popular model as well as a wearing part or maybe like fenders ones that rust out. The older tractors used the cast iron housings to run hydraulic lube lines as well as to be strong enough to be needed for the total chassis strength! Today the manufacturers are working towards modular chssis. What they are using is steel frame rails from front to rear of the tractor for strength and then using seperate or non structural power and power transmitters. One piece of newer style design that is very visable is the new hitch design on the B-series with the quarter-inching valve. Instead of the larger casting with internal cylinder built into a housing they are using seperate cylinders that are external amd far easier and more economical to repair! Most all major makes have different signs of the full frame design.

What can you say about the RPM of the mid-mount-mower.

You can gear to do most anything. On finish mowers depending on manufacturer they talk blade tip speed. The higher the better as a lower blade tip speed means mowing with a slower ground speed for the most part. There also is the consideration of blade lift. This will stand the grass up better under less then ideal conditions.

I just went thru a similar search. Locally (Houston) the Mahindra 2015 was $1500 less than the B7510. The Mahindra was heavier and had higher capasities. I also, and most importantly, liked the Mahindra dealer. I ended up getting a 2615 Saturday (2/21). Hadn't put enough time to give it a fair evaluation.

Oh yea, the Mahindra xx15 are made by Mitsubiti. They were Cub Cadets. The 2015 was a 7205, 2615 - 7265, and 3015 - 7305.

You made a good decision. That is basically a 7265 Cub Cadet tractor with a few hood and grille changes. I like red.

OK now you have me confused. I thought the smaller Cubs were Mitsubiti and the larger ones Kiotis. The Mahindra were either made in India or were the TYM from Korea.
Are the Cubs TYM?

Seems it would be a lot simpler to get the orange one.
