    Default Tractor Advice

    Hi, new to this board and to tractors in general and need some advice. I recently purchased about 5 acres and am looking for a small tractor for bushhogging and scraping a gravel road to keep it smooth. I recently found a kubota L2500 with low hours and and in good shape that I am considering. I dont want to make a purchase that I will regret later so am looking for some help.

    Is this a good size tractor for what I want to do now and possibly more things in the future? It is 2 wheel drive and manual steering. How important are these things. Also has geared drive, is hydrostatic preferrable?

    Any recommendations on this Kubota or other brands/models would be appreciated.

    My first tractor was a Ford 1300 2wd and no power steering, and those are the main reasons I traded it in. I personally think they are very important. Brands and transmissions are personal preference items.

    Depends... Some prefer gear... HST is nice and easy to drive. Price is a consideration? How fit are you? When I use a gear drive/manual steering, I'm more worn out by the end of the day...

    2WD... is your land flat?

    Does it have a Front End Loader? FEL... those are really handy but extra $$$.

    Do plenty of reading here and you'll figure out what you need...

    Price is a consideration since it is a hobby tractor. Fairly fit and cant imagine using it more than a couple of hours at a time. My land is rolling with nothing steep. No FEL.
