    Default Newby from NY looking for a sub compact tractor

    Hi all, I currently own a Husqvarna GTH27V48LS, but I'm now looking for a Sub Compact or small Compact tractor for clearing and maintaining my property. I'm here for a little research on the subject, so any suggestions are encouraged and appreciated. Thanks Chemteck!

    I'm trying to pick a color, that's why I'm here! Looking at Mahindra Max, J.D., kubota, in no particular order and I also have Case and Bobcat dealers nearby. I guess I'm kinda lucky in that respect, I have a lot of dealer choices real close with the farthest being only 34 miles away and the rest within 5-10 miles of my place. Ooops, left out Massey Ferguson unintentionally! They are about 20 miles away and I just realized the were there the other day.

    I picked mine because of dealer attitude and freindlyness. JD that is the closest was not helpful, kubota was top notch for me. Plus the kubota was a better value for the money in subcompact. you get more for less and its a robust machine. I currently have a BX and love it. it does everything I ask of it, and more.

    Any of the major manufacturers make quality tractors. I bought my kubota because it was what I needed, the Dealer was excellent and had a great parts department, the price was good, and our tractor has always met my needs and has never let me down. BTW, welcome aboard. Best wishes.

    All are good machines. Go sit on all of them, test drive, and see what dealer(s) you are comfortable with. The Bobcats have been discontinued so I would shy away from that unless you get a deal and/or don't mind a bit of hunting for parts (same tractor as Kioti) when needed. Most people feel more comfortable on a certain brand or 2 and buy accordingly.

    You might also try Kioti. LS, and TYM - all of them have dealers within 30 miles or so of you, and make good tractors as well. Only your pocketbook will notice the difference.
