Compact Tractors

What do you own and what do you like about it?

Right now I have a 2006 Kubota B7510HST and a 2003 New Holland TC33D. Its pretty hard to bet the speed and versatility of the Kubota.

The main reason I started this thread is I have a chance to buy a brand new Farmall35(would be getting rid of the Kubota) and was hoping someone on here either owns one or has tryed one and can tell me if they like it.

My best friend has a small Kubota that he is just in love with and I like it a lot too. Does everything I need it to except the bucket does not lift up high enough for me but thats my only gripe!

Exactly on of the reasons I want to get this Farmall. High lift and larger lift capacity. The only other thing I dont like about the Kubota is ground speed. Too slow to run anywhere on the road.

I have a 2009 4WD John Deere 3005 w/loader..I have about 45 hrs on it.So far it does good for me.Hydraulics are undersized for safety because of the weight of the tractor.All in all good tractor though.

Never really thought about the ground speed that much. My land and his is rough so speed was never really needed. If it needs to go anywhere it just gets loaded on the trailer any way!

I really like the Kubota's, but if it don't do what you need it to for lift and speed then it gots to go. I never operated a Farmall, but I hear International occassionally builds some good stuff. I have even heard a few good things about their engines.
