"This is a powerful little workhorse. It served me well and I loved the compact size for this tractor.
The backhoe (BH65) and a 12-foot and 16-foot buckets were great attachments that I bought with the tractor, as well as a loader and mid-mount mower. I have spent what I believe to be a fair amount of time getting to operate the tractor and backhoe, and I'm impressed with what the backhoe was capable of doing.
Overall, I would say I made a good choice when I bought it. I have since purchased a larger tractor with cab (L3560 TLB with hydraulic thumb and 2 buckets). "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Largest horsepower in its frame class, always impressed by the power for its size, 3-range transmission plus HSTCons: HST pedal tends to get sticky over time, so it requires proper lubrication and cleaning at times, and I cannot understand why Kubota put side by side brake pedals beside the HST pedal? How can you use them for turning while your foot is on the HST pedal?

"I bought it about four years ago to clear 4 acres of woods to build a house.
It is a very reliable tractor. I have put 400 hours on it so far. I have asked it to do a lot and so far I am very happy with my Kubota tractor."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Very little maintenance Cons: The 3-point hitch is a little small for some of my implements, have to remove the pins to put some of the attachments onType of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA NCI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Kubota B2920: Great Dirat Tractor on Hobby Farm
by Erik Bjornard
Model year: 2013Date Purchased: 2013-08-30Number of Hours: 35
"Moved to an 11 acres hobby/horse farm. Needed a tractor to do mowing, snow removal, hauling, tilling, etc. After a bit of research, I got the 2920.
In winter, tractor started easily even in the Polar Vortex, powered 60" PTO mounted snowblower no problem, made quick work of driveway areas. Loader on front useful for moving piles of snow.
In spring so far, using 72" rear PTO mowing deck, drag harrow, WoodMaxx wood chipper, loader with loader forks for moving piles of brush, tree trunks, etc.
Tractor runs great so far has plenty of power for what I have tried so far. And so far it is big enough. The high quality is obvious in the design and operation and quality of components."

"I recently purchased a B2920. I already owned an older B7610. My son and I clean out poultry barns with these tractors using front mounted blades. The 29hp 2920 has much less pushing power then the 24hp 7610.
Neither my son or I like to use the B2920 because of the lack of pushing power. It was explained to me that the B2920 had a different design hydro-static transmission that would result in what we were experiencing. In other words the 24hp will put more power to the wheels than the 29hp and do it with little effort from the operator. A very disappointing purchase."

New Kubota B2920
Model year: 2014Date Purchased: 2014-03-24Number of Hours: 0.2
"I just put my first 20 hours in on this machine. So far it has met my expectations. I was going to purchase the backhoe later, but decided to just get everything at once due to $0 down and 0% interest for 5 years. I am so glad I did. I've used the backhoe way more than I thought I would. I even used it to get out of some mud that had all 4 of my tires spinning.
The entire package (FEL, MMM, and BH) wasn't cheap, coming in at $26,030 before Michigan sales tax. However, the quality of this machine has me thinking that I am just breaking it in for my son."

"Well I haven't broken it yet. Where I come from we work them hard, their not for show, and I'm very please at how well my 2920 with FEL has held up. I considered going a size or two smaller but now I'm glad I didn't.
With my 14 acres of woods and over 1200 foot long driveway, I've asked it to do a lot and it always does what I ask. I'd like to front mount my rear mounted Meteor snowblower. Dealer says can't be done; need Kubota front mount blower for over 6k. Find that hard to believe."

Added This Review After 10 Months

"I have owned this tractor for 10 months now, and used it through the winter. This Kubota B-2920, with loader and soft side cab, has been a big help. I added a cab heater, of my own design, that works very well keeping the cab warm. Still no major complaints.
Power steering is great with any loader tractor, and this tractor has a good power steering system. The 3 speed HSD transmission makes this tractor a real work horse, in it's 29HP range. At first I didn't think I would like the R-4 tires, but having now used them in summer and winter, they work well.
A very good buy, for this size tractor. I considered buying "Green" but this Kubota has, in my opinion, a better tractor. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Good HP, easy to use controls, comfortable cab, a real work horse.Cons: The HSD pedal is a little uncomfortable.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA INI also considered buying: John Deere 2320 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I have had this tractor 9 months, and used it last summer with my new King Kutter, 48 in. tiller, and my Brinly 12 in. plow. Now using it for the deep snow we just had Jan 5 2014. I bought a soft side cab, and the tractor along with the added cab, have been great. This tractor has a 3 speed hydro tranny, and couple that with the 4X4 it is a work horse. I can truly say, I don't know what I would do without this tractor. Seems to be easy on fuel. "

Better Than GREEN

"Had my tractor 8 months, and like it very much. Had some issues at first, but after I got used to it, not bad at all.
It is hydro, and would rather have stick, but not able to get one. The 3-point is a little weak on the lifting, but for this size tractor, it will do. Tractor is a work horse, and the loader is great. The 4WD with locking rear end works great. Can't believe the hole I dug, and just backed out with full load in the bucket. For the 29 HP, I think I'll keep it. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: 4WD locking rear end, 3 speed transmission, quick attach loader.Cons: 3 point is a bit weak.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA INI also considered buying: John Deere 2520 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Perfect Tractor for a 5-10 Acre Gentleman's Farm
Model year: 2009Date Purchased: 2009-05-01Number of Hours: 395
"I use this tractor for finish mowing (belly mower), plowing, tilling, spraying, brush cutting, cleaning animal stalls, hay cutting and raking, and moving dirt/gravel.
I had a hard time deciding what size of tractor to buy, and I'm very happy with this one. Perfect 5-10 acre tractor in my opinion.
Loader is easily removed/installed in less than 5 minutes, as is the belly mower. Would be nice if the belly mower had a mulching option. Also, wish I had chosen the larger belly mower. Didn't realize how easy it could be removed, so I had expected to leave it on most of the time."
