    kubota b2920

    Default b2320,b2620,or b2920

    Hi i'm looking to buy a new b series tractor ,I tried a new demo unit b2920 last night and realy liked it ,I have a bx25 now and wanted something with more ground clearance then the bx 25,the tractor will be used mostly for grass cutting ,1 acre,and I also have another 5 acres of rough rocky wooded area, the b2920 cut the grass fine the only thing notice on hard turns (with the loader on)and turf tires,in 2wheel drive ,slight turf damage, i'm sure there will be less turf damage with the loader off, I would like to also add later a chipper and don't want to fall short on pto power for it. I was thinking of the b2620. is this a new engine (d1105)? in the last couple of years? thanks

    When I bought my BX2660 in 2008, I was initially going to get a B2920 for the reasons you mentioned, but went with the BX as I have other tractors for heavier stuff and additional ground clearance. I really liked the additional power as well as increased FEL strength. I now have no need for anything in that size, but if I did, my preference would be for the B2630/3030, but they are quite a bit more expensive.

    I also moved to a 20 series B from a BX last fall. I wrote an in-depth review of the process here:http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/k...t-compare.html

    Perhaps you'll enjoy reading it.

    I can assure you that with the loader off, (an easy task), the front end is so light that no damage will be done to your grass. In fact, for my gardening field work, the front end is too light.

    Unless you have some 29 hp specific need, such a running an oversized, front snow blower, you'd never likely be disappointed with the B2620.

    I would absolutely agree with TripleR. The extra money for the 2920 would better be put toward the 26 hp 30 series. But then, I'd use the extra features. But, alas, I couldn't cough up the extra funds then, and likely wouldn't now either.

    thanks for the info. Also forgot to mention to step up from b2320 to b2620 the cost $1300.00 aprox and to step up from b2620 to b2920 aprox $800.00 and a bxx20 series is the biggest tractor size I think for my main purpose (cutting grass) . I put aprox 100hours a year on it.

    For a total of $2100, more to go from the B2320 to B2920, correct. Thats a lot, but a
    B2620 or B2920 that will keep you happy for a while longer, it will be worth it. If you are even remotley thinking of more tractor, then forgo the B2320, and go for the larger of the three now, and that $1300 to 2100 difference will seam like pocket change, if you need/ want to move up latter.

    I have 170 hours on my B2620 and it's still one of the best things I've ever purchased. Lawn damage has a lot to do with tire selection. I have the bar/turf tires and have minimal issues with tearing up the lawn. My co-worker has the B2920 with R4's and he has had more significant lawn damage. The B2320 would have met my needs, but I bumped up one for the bigger loader and extra HP. No regrets.

    I would definitely go with the 26 or 2920. If money is your only concern they go the 2620 route otherwise go for the 2920. You never know when the extra hp will come in useful.

    I've always felt that the 2620 was the sweet spot with the 2X20 series tractors. 29 HP in that tractor is almost a waste since you will lose traction long before running out of power (so why spend the extra $1000?). The exception would be, if you plan on using a snowblower, brush chipper, or other attachment that sucks alot of PTO HP. Then.... go ahead and get the 2920.

    I have found it to be pretty hard to know what all you will be doing with a tractor especially for a new owner so I try to plan for any contingencies. Now some will know with certainty and know exactly what they need.

    Kubota BX2360

    Default Re: b2320,b2620,or b2920

    Over the years, kubota, like most of the OEMs keeps offering more models and pushing bigger engines into any given series. For some guys and their tasks, more hp on any given series is what they prefer and always buy the most hp a series offers. Naturally, they recommend others to do the same.

    But, frankly, there are others who buy the base tractor of the series, getting the features of that series, with plenty of useable hp, at the lowest price.

    Still others prefer to split the difference right down the middle of the series and believe they've found the "sweet spot" of the series with the right balance of hp and features.

    Which is exactly why Kubota makes three or four choices in every series, at different prices, in every series of tractors they market. Otherwise, they'd just offer a BX, a B-20, a B-30, a L, a Grand L, etc. That was the way tractors were sold in the 50's and 60's. Maybe things were more simple then.
