Looking for a Compact Tractor with Belly mower
So the wife and I may be buying a 2 to 3 acre lot when I come home. If we do pick up something of this size then my current John Deere 21" push mower is not going to cut it in a timely manner.
What I am looking for is a JD or Kubota 25hp-ish Compact tractor. Ultimately I want the Loader, 60" deck, and backhoe for it. Backhoe is a wish list item that would be more to help at my parents house then mine.
But who is a good dealer to talk to? My range of travel would be Beaumont, Victoria, SA, Austin, Waco, to DFW. SO a pretty big spread as I am willing to drive to save $500.
Kubota and JD seem to have some good finance deals happening right now. 60 months at 0%. I believe JD is 60 month or 48 month.
Kubota B series is what I would be in the market for while JD 1000 Series and 2000 series suits me.
At the minimum I will buy just the tractor and belly mower. Really would like to throw in the loader but we will see. Not going to buy until I sign the papers on the lot. But should happen in the next month, we have a few lots that we are very interested in.
