    Default Re: Kubota 2410 big enough?

    Hi Rich and everyone,

    The backhoe is the larger of the two, the one you mentioned. I don't have the info handy...that is the price of setting up a wireless home network. Can use the laptop out back in the cool evening air...

    Yes, the heavy duty top link is part of the package. Actually, I think it is required by kubota. I did specify that it be included just in case the dealer forgot about it.

    Greatly appreciate all the useful pointers!

    Bill

    Frank,

    Nah, you can always find bigger jobs to do. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Macher,

    Good luck, the B2910 looks like an excellent machine. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    Hi again,

    Well, I signed the papers.

    Could have the tractor as early as the end of next week...

    More details to follow...after delivery probably...

    Guess I better add tractors as a hobby in my profile!

    Still can't believe that my interest in a BX22 blossomed into a B2910!

    Bill,

    Congratulations! You've got a real nice package there!

    The hardest part is going to be waiting for the delivery. Be patient, it's well worth the wait.

    My initial search for a tractor started with the larger Toro/Wheelhorse units (they can accept a small loader), then the (6018?) Ingersoll TLB series, the Terramites and several others. I finally decided on the kubota line and talked myself into the B2910. For my purposes, it just seemed like the most "bang for the buck" and didn't require that I compromise anything.

    Good Luck and remember....patience.

    ~Rick

    P.S. If you don't have much experience with loaders and backhoes (I had none!), I strongly recommend the book "Operating Techniques for the Tractor-Loader-Backhoe" by Gary J. Ober. It's really written for larger machines like Case 580's, but many of the topics, especially those regarding center-of-gravity are quite applicable to our smaller machines. I think the book is about $45 or so. ~R.

    I also started with the Ingersoll 6018 loader tractor with backhoe attachment. I actually bought a low hour used one at a good price but was very disapointed with what it could (actually couldn't) do. The lack of 4 wheel drive and diesel made a big difference. I ended up trading it in and fortunately not loosing my shirt. What impressed me with the dealer that I eventually bought from is that he was willing to setup a machine the way I wanted it and let me actually dig with it. The other dealers were less willing to do that. Not sure why.

    That's pretty much how it happened with me too.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]
