    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Well, in case anyone is interested, I finally made it to the JD dealer and bought a tractor. I know the owner decently well, as he does business with me, so I thought I would return the favor. He...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Haven't bought yet. I've checked out JD 3032, 4105, 5045d. Checked out some kubotas, though I can't remember model numbers. I'm gonna wait a bit and see what my tax damage is before I do anything....

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Well, I think I will stick to either JD, Kubota, or Mahindra. Those dealers are close by. I'm not at all opposed to used, but I'm not about to drive 400 miles to look at potential candidates. Time...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Thanks for all the replies. I'm gonna go and check everything out. Used would be fine with me, especially if I get a more capable machine. A lot of varied opinions on the options. I know that I...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Thanks. I don't really need to transport it anywhere. It will simply stay at the house. I'm gonna go take a look around soon. I was planning to go yesterday, but it was monsoon season here. I...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Thanks for the candid reply. Buying tractors is worse than buying a new truck. I can't give my wife **** anymore about how much looking and shopping she does. I'm gonna start test driving some. ...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Thanks, that's what I've kinda been thinking. You can get one of these package deals around here -3032e, box blade, bush hog, FEL - for around $20k. Or the equivalent kubota. This is mainly a toy...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    I've thought about that as well. What else compares to a 5045e?

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    One Deere dealer is less than 2 miles. Another is about 5. One kubota is about 10 miles, another about 15. It's a small town so everyone knows your name, and your business.

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    We don't have the red clay, thank goodness. It's very fertile, somewhat sandy soil. I'm now trying to decipher the differences between Deere and kubota.

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    BK (before kids), I had a lot of time to do my own maintenance on my toys. Now, I just want to enjoy the toys. I have several kubota dealers and several JD dealers close by. By that I mean 5 miles...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    No, I do not anticipate doing my own maintenance. That's why close dealers are important to me. I enjoy maintenance work, but have no time to do it.

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Thanks. I'm leaning towards either JD or Kubota since both dealers are less than 10 miles from the house. I'll try to make it back to the dealers this week.

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Someone mentioned a utility sized 4wd for less money than a compact 4wd. It defies logic, but where would I find such a beast?

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    So if not a compact 4wd, then what size 4wd? Something like a 5045E? I'm not looking to spend $40k+ on tractor plus implements. Again, this is more a toy than anything. What do I look for?

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    I truly appreciate everyone's replies. I have a fair bit of experience in operating tractors, but not within the last 10-12 years. In that time, the smaller 4wd tractors seem to have exploded in...

    Re: Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Thanks all. I'm thinking a smaller 4wd will be fine. We never have snow so that's not a concern. No need for a cab or anything like that. This will mainly be a toy for me. I'll use it to...

    Compact 4wd v. Larger 2wd utility tractor?

    Been lurking for a long time. First time posting. I have about 15 acres that I need to maintain. All wooded. I would like a tractor for general bush hog work, cutting trials, moving dirt and...
