    I'm throwing around the idea of getting a Kubota Utility Tractor w/ Loader and maybe a few attachments. In the 30-38hp range. We have a farm which I would use this on quite a bit. (Logging/Land clearing, Mowing, Dirt Work and Loading scrap) What are some extra/side tasks/jobs that aren't too involved that I could use this for outside the farm? What do you guys use yours for? (besides obviously landscaping and snow removal) And I would rather not get into real hardcore landscaping. Thanks for your input!

    Around here we make excellent money brush hogging lots that people want maintained once a month.

    We also do the typical plow, till, disc, cultivate garden plots, but we currently have a BX and a B, so they are a little easier to transport than probably a Kubota L or M...

    People who are willing to do work with sub compact and compact utility tractors can name their price on somethings.

    I have a Kubota 3240 with over 700hrs on it. Love it but if it were our only machine I would go up in hp. Go for the grand L cab , you will never regret it ,no more cold wet or dry and dusty days.
