    I have a 3710 Kubota and am glad I stepped up from the smaller compact tractors.Also if buying Hydrostatic drive it will need a few more HP.If you have to lift heavy loads high the smaller tractors will tip over easy.
    Bushogging and field mowing are excellent supplements for income.

    If you are moving logs, look at the L series, the B series would be too small for you. The L series sit highter off the ground, which is good for going throught the woods.
