    B7500HSD

    Default Hello lads, been awhile...

    11 years ago I traded in my B5100E for a B7500HSD. It's been a great tractor and still has plenty of life but I am looking for something a little bigger.

    I am not averse to other brands, but I've been happy with this tractor and figured I would start research with the familiar. It didn't take too long before I realized that their current model line-ups have changed enough that I can't seem to decipher their derivation. I slid over to the JD site, then NH, Kioti, etc, as well as uncovering a bunch of "new" players in this range.

    So far, I have determined that the Kioti CK30 with HST to be a very good fit. I particularly liked the hydraulic, FEL, and 3-point specifications.

    I was hoping that someone with more experience in current offerings could help me establish the equivalent models from the other manufacturers. I hope this does not come off as sounding lazy - I fully realize that it is within my ability to determine this myself - but it wold probably take me at least a week of intense research.

    Many thanks,

    I'd compare that CK30 to the kubota L3240 & L3200.
    also, look at the Deere 3220?
    That's the problem with trouble.

    looch,
    You need to spice this thread up a bit. Why don't you try asking what kind of tires you should get or if you can live without the HST?

    The more things change, the more they stay the same I guess.
