    Excellent adivce, just wanted to toss in the 4100 is listed in my specs as having 20 gross horsepower and 17 PTO and the 7500 is listed at 16 horse. I think the new 4010 is like 14 or something so I would still think the better comparison to be the 4100 or 4110, could be wrong.

    The 4010 has 18.5 gross horsepower and the B7500 has 21 gross horsepower.

    I bought the B7500 with the 302 FL on 3-16, I drove the J.D. 4010 and the kubota B7500. The things I did not like about the JD was the Throttle being on the side of the hood and not on the steering colum, the forward and reverse pedals being side-by-side (I thought I could accidentially hit the wrong pedal in close quarters) the seat belt did not retract, less horsepower, less cooling and oil capacity, less hydraulic oil capactiy, and the JD dealer could not get this tractor until May 1. There are some things I did not like about the B7500 but overall I think I got more for my money buying the Kubota. I hope to get the B7500 by the end of the week - I can't wait.

    None -yet. Until then FunBuggy (EZ-Go) will have to do!

    Congrats on going with the B7500. Make sure you post some pics of it once you get it (you'll need to register to do that [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]).

    As I've pointed out many times (maybe too many [img]/w3tcompact/icons/blush.gif[/img]), you probably don't want to put too much stock in the horsepower claims, as the HP curves can vary so widely, and also differ in terms of continuous and/or intermittent HP availability (not to mention whether the HP is what you expect at PTO RPM as an example). You're much better off comparing the displacement of the engines, and looking at the torque curves for the engines (which will follow the displacement very closely).

    I haven't found any detailed information on the deere units that have been discussed here, but if I were comparing these machines for available power, that is the method I would choose.

    BTW - Fine choice. Of course I wouldn't be prejudiced.... [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]
