    Default Best little tractor for a big guy

    I am shopping for a CUT in the 30-35 horse range. Problem is that I am 6'6" and 220 lbs. I have sat in quite a few, but they are all varying degrees of cramped. Which CUT has the biggest workspace?

    My co worker, 6'6" and a few more pounds, likes his kubota L3700SU, and from what I can tell now, the L3200 and L3800 have about as much space. He did fit on my little BX23, but not great, and after I drug him around while I was Looking at B2X20's, and the B3200, he did not fit well on those tractors at all. Then we found the L3700SU, and before I knew it, he had one. He paid way to much for it, but he had it anyway(thats another storie).

    I'm 6' 3" 300 lbs and while shopping for a similar size CUT a few years ago I found that the JD 3320 was the best fit for me. All the other brands I tried seemed to have at least one feature that felt to awkward to live with. Most of the time it was the hydro and brake pedals that were misplaced for my build. If memory serves me right the 3320 also had the most open station which made getting on and off the tractor the easiest.

    I am 6' 6" and 280lbs. I had a Kuboto L2900 which was a little tight on leg room. I recently upgraded to a John Deere 3120 with Hydro trans and it is very comfortable. The legroom, seat and head room with the overhead canopy are all excellent for me.

    The JD 3038e worked out OK for me. I'm heavier (& shorter) than any poster so far... The fairly open cockpit (no tranny tunnel to step over) was also a plus as I've got some mobility issues stemming from accident related back trauma.

    You need to try a Mahindra 3016 or 3616 on for size. I believe you will find it very comfortable for the big guy.
