At the time the reviews were great and it was about 2-4K cheaper then a JD or Kubota...If I did buy another brand it would probably be the Kubota....My Mahindra w/ a disc and 5ft bush hag was about 17K

Like others said, it would depend on alot of what you plan on doing w/ it and your location to the dealers.....Just remember don't go too small you will regret it!!! And if you plan on buying a tractor...make sure it has a bucket!!! Better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it!!! Same goes fer 4x4!!!
Buy a Kabota, when all the JD's are in the shop, you will still be getting the job done. If your like me, don't under estimate the size tractor you need. My first one was a 22hp Kabota I think. Didn't keep it long at all. I bought the L3400 in 09 brand new. I had to put a new battery in it to date, that's all. Great tractor. I pull a 7' bush hog finishing mower, 5' disk for food plots, 5' bush hog, 5' tiller, and a big heavy 5' box blade.

I couldn't see myself with anything smaller than the 34hp. Make sure you get the loader and 4X4.
off route II likes this.

You're probably right, in the sub compact and compact tractor classes, 4wd models are probably the only ones available.

The small kabota tractors just don't feel as solid as the others. Their light weight, low hydraulic ratings speaks to that assessment also.

My $.02, if you get less than a 30HP don't waste $ on a disc. I haven't seen a 4' disc heavy enough to really do any damage. I would seriously look at a tiller instead of disc for anything less than 30HP

I have a Kubota L2850 34 engine/28 pto horse and a L4200 42 engine/37 pto horse, both 4wd (front wheel assist in tractor jargon). Both have loaders that get used for all sorts of tasks.

The L2850 was the smallest size I felt that could do real work, and is quite nimble.
The L4200 is heavier and more power, can work faster but a little less nimble, but still quite manageable in tight places.
I agree the sub-compacts (B series and equivalents) are very limited in capability, would be mostly useless to me.

Have had the L2850 since 1988 and the L4200 since 2005, both have been trouble free, just routine fluid changes. I think they are incredible machines.

Two friends have JDs both have had good luck with them. Also hear good things about Mahindra but no actual experience.
