JD v. Kubota

Thanks to all for the replies.

I'll check out the Kubota range as well but the only smaller Kubotas I've seen here in NZ are the 16hp B7100 HST 4WD which don't have power steering and as a result are heavy to manoeuvre in tight spaces. They have a good range of dedicated mowers but they wouldn't be suitable for towing my sprayer and trailer.

Maybe the B7100 is now available with power steering... it's worth a look.

Failing that, the JD GT225 18hp looks suitable for my purposes.

Thanks again for your suggestions.

Regards
Paul.
NZ.

As you will be pulling a tank that weighs in excess of 500 lb. I would suggest something such as the John Deere model 455 with 3 cyl. Yanmar diesel. It is a little heavier than what you will need for most applications but you must remember, a tank 3/4 to 1/2 full can be a handful going up and down steep grades,stopping etc. I have driven literally dozens of different trucks,tractors with various configurations of tanks. Load shift is the issue here and a small mini tractor is unlikely to be able to control this phenomena. Drove the above suggested tractor this fall as a loaner until repairs were done to my 322 and was in love with the loads of torque, strong hydrostatics and of course great ergonomics that seemingly only John Deere can deliver. Hope this helps!
