Great SCUT Posted by Roger K. on 07/13/2012

My JD 1026R came with the 120 front loader, 54" drive over mower deck, and a ballast box. I have also used a Wood TSR52 rotary tiller with it which it handled just fine. The deck gives a good cut and is easy to take off and put on. The loader has plenty of power and, again, is super easy to remove and install.

I looked at the Kubota BX series and MF 2400/2600 tractors before I checked out JD. I assumed, from what I had heard, that the JD would be way more costly. Well it was not! I got the package for around $17,500 (not including the tiller). This was about the same price as the Kubota BX2660 and just a bit more than the MF.

While all are good machines I felt the JD had a much better system of removing and reattaching the mower and loader. I also liked the longer arms on the 3 point hitch and that the adjustment linkages are on the outside of the arms.

My suggestion to anyone considering a SCUT is to
be sure you know what you want the tractor to be able to do, test drive each at your local deal, have them give you their price and go from there. Good luck and enjoy whichever tractor you choose!
