    I saw a ad in acreage magazine for Branson tractors. I've never heard of these before. Anyone own one of these tractors? Whats your opinion of these tractors. You can get a 35hp diesel, 4 wheel drive, w/loader for $12,775. Looks like a well built tractor from what the picture shows. here is their website.

    Branson/Century is the same tractor. Only difference is the loader. Each use a different supplier. Either tractor is very good and I wouldn't be afraid of either.. 12,K is very cheap if new. I have a Mahindra 10 series which, like many, are built in Korea. The 10 series Mahindra's use Daedong (KIOTI) motors. Branson/Century use Kujke (Korean) and the larger 45 HP use the Yanmar motor.

    I have looked at a Branson. Nice looking tractor. Loader is a one man disconnect with quick disconnect lines and a stand for the loader. Flip down the stand, pull a couple of pins lower it down and disconnect the lines.

    Branson tractors have good reviews over at tractorbynet.com. Deere will give you the best parts support network, challenger (mf) will give you the best dealer warranty service if you buy from a cat dealer, kubota will give you the highest quality machine across the board!

    used a slightly larger L5030, 50hp tractor to do my driveway. fantastic machine, tons of power, and an A/C cab helped too.

    I saw the Bronson tractors at a trade show last year. They looked like they would be a great tractor. The only thing I did not like was it seemed to sit up really high. It felt like it maybe a little top heavy. Thats just my 2 cents.
