View Full Version : What color tractor

Not sure which tractor to buy, Blue,Orange or Green want around 30 HP with a loader?

02-26-2004, 06:25 PM
Look at the John Deere 790. I have a 770 4wd w/loader and it is a super little tractor.JD Credit had some really good financing on them a month or two ago,but it might end on Feb. 29th so checkw/ your dealer asap. I hope this helps you a little bit.

Shouldnt the question be "Not sure which kinda of tractor to buy?" I mean who cares about color?, I want a tractor that's gonna perform. Tractors aint cheap so forget color and go for quality

JD4210 Excellent tractor

I don't see many JD around here, seems like kubota is the most common, they all seem close on price . Just want one that will hold up and not nickel and dime me.

jd green 4500 nothing runs like a deere

As far as I know New Holland/Ford Compacts have the tightest turning radius, you might consider that aspect considering some conditions landscapers have to work in.

You cant go wrong with of the major players, JD, Kubota, New Holland, Case if you get a good dealership. The man who sells it to you makes all the difference in the world.

02-28-2004, 07:21 PM
I aggree its all about the dealer and their quality of service.

ORANGE! Go with the Kubota, you'll be pleased

John Deere 2210 with hydrostat, power steering, mfwd are standard. Loader with joystick option. Powerful, economical, fun to run.

Having been in business for 10 years now. I 've been a orange (KUBOTA) tractor owner for almost 3 years . I'm on my 2nd one. I just recently traded my b7500 21hp 3 cylinder diesel for a New B7800 30hp 4 cylinder diesel I wish they had this in the first place I would have bought it over the B7500. the B7800 has awesome power, 3 range Hydro Trany, Inching for the 3point hitch, all around great tractor and it's priced less than JD. One thing I didn't like about JD other than price was the use of a lot of plastic levers and switches. The trade in value on them are great too. I paid 13500 for my b7500 and got 10000 for a trade toward the b7500. So if you must chose go Orange.

I have been using JD for forty years. The company is sound and there equipment is 2nd to none. You will pay a premium price to get it but the resale value makes that a little easer to live with. I have two mid sized JD that are forty years old that have never needed any major repairs. Well the 2020 did need a head gasket once and we did the valves while we had the head off but the valves weren't that bad it just seemed to make since to do it while the head was already off. The 1020 is still on the original clutch. There are pictures on this thread. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=36715

Anyone make a pink one?

It's hard to top a John Deere tractor .

03-10-2004, 10:10 PM
kubota b7800 will amaze you, lots of bang for the buck

03-10-2004, 10:21 PM
I would first look at what dealerships you have close to you. Then talk to the guys around you. Farmers, others in the business to see who has had bad and good experiences at these dealers.
Then I would look at the financing available through John Deere or New Holland, etc....

I can' t get over how awsome the B7800 is. I have 4-5 big jobs lined up for it already. The one thing i'm going to buy is the quick attachment for the 3 point hitch they sell it in the northern tool catalog. Who else has the b7800 what do you think about it?

03-17-2004, 02:14 PM
Orange! I have a Kubota Grand L 3010, 30hp tractor, and it is awesome. The current model of the same tractor is the 3130. It is heavier than the B7800 others have mentioned here, but for what I do, the weight is a big advantage.
I truely believe you can't go wrong with any of the big 3 (Kubota, JD or NH) ...but when i had to make the same choice I went with the Kubota and have been very happy with that decision.
Sit in all the seats a time or two and get to know the dealer. That will be what clinches the sale. Go with a dealer you can trust. Hope this helps.

Cholmes - so true, so true.

I had several other landscapers tell me to buy a kubota. Which was hard for me to believe, since I grew up with deeres. I still have several john deere lawn and garden tractors from the 1960's.

Now that I have a kubota, I know why every one told me to buy one. Kubotas are more tractor for less money and never break down. My b7500 will go to my parents when I move out, to cut the grass, plow the snow, till mom's garden, etc. Because by then I am going to have a larger L series kubota. But I love my little kubota, I can take it anywhere.

Kubota B7800, three months young, 65 hours. Great tractor however I'm sure you can't go wrong with any of the big players and many of the up and comers. As they all say, the dealer is more important than the color. I sure do like my orange tractor though. If you're still looking check this site out: www.tractorbynet.com or www.tractorpoint.com Hopefully it's ok that I put links to these sites here since they're both tractor specific and not landscape related. Someone let me know if that's not ok.

"JD 4310...........run the best F*** the rest"

Well, I don't claim to be the "best" but if you come near me, you'll wish I was! ;-)

"nothing runs from a Kubota like a Deere":blob2: :blob3: :blob2: :blob3: :blob2: :blob3: :blob2: :blob3: p.s. age 18 that explains it.....

First off, let me say that I grew up green, and LOVE green to this day, however..................

When I got ready to buy a compact this last time, I gave an honest look / test at all the major brands. We were going to use it for dirt work, landscaping, plowing and tilling, mowing and backhoe work. So for us, the Hydraulics and ergonomics were more important that color of paint. I narrowed the field down to Kubota, NH and Deere, all 35hp. I tested the Kub, and really liked the tractor but, dropped it from consideration because of the loader control. It would suck for extended loader operation. Deere had a power reverser where NH had a clutch reverser. In the end, I bought a NH TC35 because of $$ and because the NH loader lifted higher and had more capacity then the Deere. Also, NH offered a universal quick attach bucket option that Deere didn't have. This lets me hook onto attachments made for skid loaders. :) We have ran this unit for 2 years now, and it has been a good tractor. I just wish that the dealer would have told me we could get a TC40 for less than $1k more.
