    I stopped at a local tractor dealer and looked at a 1991 Kubota B7100HST. It looked good, the hours are low (1131), the tires are decent, the Continental 5 ft. finish mower works well. It is 4 wheel drive and has a hydrostatic transmission. It doesn't smoke or leak that I can tell.

    I can pick it up for 3000. Deal or no deal? I think I could buy this and never lose money on it but that is just me. When you see a 8N going for 2500 it gives me confidence but I need to know from those who know.

    Thank you

    That sounds like a great deal. I've seen similar size grey market tractors sell for about the same. The B7100 is a very nice little machine and will run that 5' finish mower very well. What other uses do you have in mind?

    I will probably pick up a box blade and a grader blade for it
