"This 4 wheel drive tractor with a bucket has been a real work horse for me. It is worth it's weight in gold (almost). I have cleared land, stacked huge piles of brush with the bucket. The bucket has never been off as it is invaluable to me.
I load and move the large 5 ft. round bales with a bale spear that was fashioned to mount on the front of the bucket. I have brush hogged many acres with large stands of brush I have moved tons of snow. I also plowed several acres with a trailer 3 bottom plow although it was a slow process due to limited power in a faster gear. It is very reliable."

"Love it, wish I had gotten one years ago. Cursing all the years I struggled through all the John Deer B's and Farmalls. It sips fuel. Runs a tiller, a bailer, moves round bales no problem. Cold starts easily down to about 15, plug it in below that. Moves a lot of snow and hasn't needed chains.
Two things I would change. The tool box gets smacked by three point implements at top of travel. Feels tippy at times -gopher mounds, side hills. I have gotten by with a loader full of gravel travelling low so far. Good ROPS system though. (I've never actually tested it).
I raise Clydesdales and Dexter cows on an acreage and use it for chores. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Anyone can run it. HST is easy. Comes well equipped.Cons: Tippy. Feels insecure on sidehills, frozen manure. Expensive unique filters. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA MNI also considered buying: Kubota L4630 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I use my tractor to harvest wood and I maintain a 1.3 mile private road except for plowing snow. I also plow several driveways in the winter.
This is my third new Kubota. I have owned a 1981 16 h.p. B7100, and a 24 h.p., all with hydrostatic transmissions.
I have a loader, home made forks, rear scraper blade, logging winch, home made sawing machine, home made wood splitter, two trailers, ice chains and a rake."
