I bought this tractor mostly to mow grass and blade a little snow on our 3 acres. For that, this little tractor did an excellent job! I have also used the rear blade to "dig" up rocks, as well as the draw bar to pull small trees and bushes out of the ground.
I also bought a 42" brush hog to use behind the tractor. The tractor never had a lack of power, but it is a little light in the front end. The easy solution is to add some weights to the front end. The tractor is the perfect size to fit down narrow trails and through the woods to clean out some brush with the cutter!
We have recently purchased some land (48 acres) and I need a bit bigger tractor, and one with a loader. I could have added a loader to the BX2200, but my thoughts are that this tractor is a bit small for a loader. At least for my needs, anyway. Plus, I felt my money would be better spent upgrading tractors as opposed to just adding a loader.
Come trade-in time, the little Kubota held it's value really well. After 10 years and 420 hours, it's trade-in value was 70% of the purchase price when new! I'm talking real, hard dollars, not the fluff some dealers throw at you!
I'm going to miss my little tractor when I get my new one next week. I really would have liked to have kept it for mowing and for small work around the house, but it's just not in my budget. Plus, with the excellent trade-in value, I just couldn't resist trading it in.
