"We run a cut your own Christmas tree farm in Massachusetts. The B2320HSDN was the first tractor we found to be narrow enough to drive between the trees planted 6 feet apart. We mow with a 3-point hitch finish mower and when we come to the end of a row we can turn around by hitting reverse with our heal. The 540 power take-off never slows down and we head back down another row.
We also built a custom dump trailer that we use to carry compost and soil to replant the trees cut down at Christmas. We also use it to remove the stumps we pull. We have trees of all sizes in one field so it takes very narrow equipment to fit down the rows without breaking limbs. We broad cast fertilizer with a 3-point hitch spreader and the job is done without any effort with one person.
Great little tractor."

Kubota B2320 Dependability Issues
by BJ Karibian
Model year: 2010Date Purchased: 2010-04-20Number of Hours: 160
"My Kubota was purchased new from a local tractor dealer. In the beginning they were supportive, but now I am faced with the $150 charge for them to pick the tractor up and bring it to their dealership 15-20 miles away for any work since they no longer want to do anything on it at the farm.
My tractor repeatedly has safety sensor issues and right now will not start no matter what I try, nor what the farmer down the street tries. This leaves me with no way to push up my manure pile, drag the groomer over my riding arena, or mow.
I am very unhappy with this machine. Dependability was what I was looking for when I spent the money on a new tractor. Oh well, strike Kubota off the list."

Happy So Far
Model year: 2014Date Purchased: 2014-05-01Number of Hours: 6
"With only 6 hours on the new tractor what can I say? I love the HST most of the time, but at times I miss the manual trans of my old B6200. I am assuming the reliability will remain exceptional like my B6200 was so I give the B2320 5 stars.
I will be using it for general yard maintenance and snow removal with a blade and snowblower. I also have a wood splitter attachment that uses the tractor's hydraulics.
The coffee cup holder is a nice touch, but why did Kubota remove the very useful lynch pin storage loops that used to be welded onto the lower lift arms of the 3 point hitch?"
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Size, power, reliability, value and HST.Cons: Foot pressure for HST speed is too much. Lighter spring needed.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: CND OTI also considered buying: Kubota B2620 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Does The Job

Model year: 2009Date Purchased: 2014-07-23Number of Hours: 40
"The tractors most important use is snow plowing/removal/clearing in the winter. I have a bucket and after about 5 years of snow clearing, I'm getting pretty good with my operating tact. Other uses are loading loam or other items and carrying or relocating items. I don't farm or plow, don't mow my lawn with it. I'm seriously thinking about adding a back hoe."

"Good overall machine except for the three point lift system. On the 2320DT, the control sucks as far as good blade work goes. These tractors need to have a position control on all of these B models, like the older Fords, even the 9Ns.
It is okay if all one wants to do is raise and lower the implement, but when you try and do fine level blade work, the hydraulic control is too rough, too much travel in the lever before a response in the implement is seen. I understand how the valve works now, but was not told this when I bought the tractor else I would have got another model or make."

Great Compact Tractor
Model year: 2010Date Purchased: 2012-05-23Number of Hours: 140
"This is my first go around with a compact tractor. I had a 9N then a Ford 650 for light farm work and a T/S Cub Cadet with a 50" deck for mowing. I decided to combine everything into one unit and was pleasantly surprised with the power of this tractor.
It's all I need for my 10 acres at home and small enough to haul to my camp 100 miles away for work there. The only issue I've had to date is leveling the mower deck. The front right corner hangs lower than the rest of the deck and I haven't figured out (yet) how to get it perfect.
I've moved plenty of dirt in the summer months and plenty of snow in the winter and it hasn't let me down. Another added bonus is fuel economy. It takes me 2.5 hours to mow the lawn and uses maybe 1.25 gallons of fuel compared to my old Cub which used nearly 5 gallons each time I mowed. Considering I mow on average twice a week, that's a nice savings. "

"After a couple of used tractors, one grey, one green and an orange one I finally broke down a bought a brand new B2320 HST Kubota with FEL, MMM & front MTD snowblower.
Because it is still new I only have good things to say, and I hope that as time goes on and I get more time on it I will still feel the same.
I have added a Curtis cab, brush hog, landscape rake and am waiting for my pine-straw rake to arrive. I am planning to clear, manicure and maintain a chunk of my property and I will update my review after a few months of making the tractor earn its keep and see how I feel then."

"Being new to the tractor world I decided to do some research before purchasing. I looked at a few New Holland John Deere and Kubota. After reading up on all three I decided to go with the 2320 HST and added loaded R4 tires front brush guard and a mechanical thumb on the backhoe. I will say I am impressed with this machine as its my first tractor."
