    Default Used BX or riding mower vs. current 1991 Case 1130

    I have a 1991 Case 1130 (made by Mitsubishi same as many Cub Cadets, Mahindra 2016). This series of tractor is much larger than box and b series physically. It is 2wd gear tractor with AG tires and 1225hrs. I bought it to skid logs and bush hog brush on my 2acre wooded
    lot and help on the families 55 acre farm. I have a 4 ft bush hog, 5 ft finish mower, 6ft straight blade and a boom pole. I also have a crappy sears lt1000 geared rider with 38inch deck. I am also inheriting a Scotts S2554 rider hydrostatic, 54 inchdeck and HD tufftorque 66 trans.

    I would like a loader and hydrostatic drive and turf or R4 tires to reduce ruts on the yard.

    Option 1: buy a used bx 1500 or 2200 with loader and 54 inch mid mount deck for between 7500 and 9000. Sell my case and all the implements and buy new implements.

    Option 2: keeps tractor and use Scotts and sears to cut yard and get a 4000 dollar aftermarket loader.

    you'd be much happier with quality and strength and how long it lasts with a BX instead of a aftermarket stuff. less breakdowns and issues. however I would look at higher model numbers if you can since the newer models has more versatility and easier to take loader off when needed. The 15 and 22 series do have loader take offs but the newer designs has joysticks that stay ON the tractor.

    I could use stronger words but feel it wouldn't make any difference. I totally agree with you and I've owned several BXs, Bs and one L. It's the Craftsman thing that .....well........OK I agree with you.
