    Mitsubishi mt250d

    Default MAX28XL or 3016

    I'm having a hard time deciding on a new tractor. (size and brand) What I would like is a tractor that compares to my current Mitsubishi MT250D. It weighs around 2000# and has a 5' FEL. I have 20 acres where I live which I'm always moving dirt, getting firewood, and mowing 3 acres of grass. I also have 100 acres 10 miles away that I am improving for hunting and outdoor recreation. This includes pushing brush, creating foodplots, planting trees, ect... The land has some flat and some fairly steep slopes (250D makes me nervous). I would like to get FEL, BH, Bhog, and either MMM or 3pt FM. After I decide on size, then I think it's either Kubota or Mahindra. Also, my trailer is licenced for 5000#, so would it haul the 3016 with implements or do I have to replace it too? Thanks in advance.

    I looked at both last week and the max looks like a riding mower on roids. where as the 3016 looks and feels more like a tractor. the 3016 with fel weighs in at about 3300 lbs if you add a bh its around 4500lbs so your trailer should be good. I was looking at the 3016 but the del say 4-6 weeks before i get one. but he had several 4010s in stock so i may wait until he gets his money rite and go bigger. good luck.

    I agree with buggy art, and would definitely go with the 3016. It has a 3 range HST. I don't use Hi range very often, yet it is there when I need it, like mowing in reverse gear when grass is very high, and I don't want to trample it down with the rear tires before it is cut.
    I thank God for these gifts: 2005 Mahindra 2615 HST w/loader, (485 hours), and 3710 backhoe. Markham tooth bar, Bush Hog SQ60 rotary cutter, Bush Hog 3507 angle blade, Bush Hog LLR84 landscape rake w/gauge wheels, Rankin loader mounted forks, Paumco Quick Spade, Agri-Ease 3 point log splitter.
