    Based on what you have described I can't imagine why you'd need more than the BX. I would however recommend a front end loader. A FEL will double the usefulness of any tractor.

    The BX is more than enough tractor for just mowing.

    The price for the BX is really good, but the price for the 3030 sounds really good also. I agree, an FEL is a must have almost. You are the one spending the money, how much is your budget? If I were buying and had the money, I'd go for the bigger tractor. Do you need the other implements?

    I can't comment on the other two deals, but the B3030 deal sounds really sweet. Are you sure it's a 54" MMM? All they had when I bought mine in Jan. '08 was 60" or 72". I only got the 60" MMM and loader with mine, and (after tax) it was almost $5k more than your deal. And your deal includes all those extras.

    And I agree with the others -- you'll really want a FEL with your tractor. No better time to get it than right now.

    With 3 acres of property I just cannot see you just cutting grass or brush. Inevitably, jobs will crop up where you will really appreciate a larger machine.

    I have 2.3 acres & started with a 14 HP riding lawn mower. The tiny tractor had all kinds of power but just was way too light & way too close to the ground which led to alot of wheel spinning. Plus, tasks were slow getting done & I was doing all kinds of hand-bombing. So when I started looking for something bigger I was looking for a 28 to 30HP tractor. Ended up getting a 35 HP tractor which is a little bigger than I really needed but I have never looked back & am EXTREMELY pleased with my purchase.

    Don't make the same mistake that 80% of people make. GET THE BIGGER TRACTOR right from the start !!

    That price, that tractor & all those implements......man I would not hesitate.

    Good Luck,

    Ha! I started with 14 acres (2+ of lawn) and only a 19" lawnboy 2 cycle push mower that was buried under a mound of old horse manure in the barn by the departing owner. Used that and that alone for the first season. Great exercise - but lousy for actually getting anything done.

    The 3030 will be overkill on 3 acres. BUT - the attachments and the FEL make it a really good package. The actual size is less than it seems now and the capability is very much greater with the 3030. You will spend more on the smaller machines getting the attachments etc. I would just bite the bullet and get the larger machine.

    35 horses for only 2.30 acres must mean I need around 50 HP for my 2.33 acre spread.

    I think you underestimated slightly, my math says you have about 53 HP for your 2.33 acre spread (15 + 15 + 23)
