Overall I'm happy with the B2300HST and it's capabilities. I purchased the tractor with mid-mount mower and front loader. I first thought the loader was an overkill considering the amount of property we have but, as an old guy with arthritis problems, it has been a god-send.
The loader can be mounted or removed in about 5 minutes while the mower deck takes a little longer. We had owned a 2WD, Std transmission B8200 Kubota with a Woods belly mount mower for nearly 25 years. It was time we acquired something more modern.
