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.

The Kubota dealer in Bryan/College Station is where alot of the people here go for a deal. You might check them out.

I wouldn't waste your time with the one in Brenham; they're high.

Normangee tractor is supposed to be the biggest kubota dealer in the nation.

Outdoor power outlet in Conroe has good prices

Normangee tractor is also suppose to give real good deals on SxS's, or at least that is what I have been told.

I will look into them.

Just watch out on the service. I know the local place frowns on doing warranty work on stuff from Normangee. Its like there's bad blood there or something, I don't know how it is with the other dealers.

And Kubota would be my choice over JD. We had a diesel riding lawn mower that was over 20 years old that is still in the family and still going strong. Only issue was the belt on the deck was a pain to replace since you had to take the deck off.

might also look at the kubota place in Taylor. cant remember the name off the top of my head...

we've had 2 of our tractors there for parts and service a few times, along with ordering parts for the RTV. Decent price on parts/labor, but not sure about the purchasing a tractor.

You should venture into the off topic section more often.

Jake, I will dig up the pictures from the Diamond. I believe there was a couple nice ones of you.


Anywho,
Anybody have a opinion of Mahindra and of Case. I am sure the Case are decent tractors but growing up on a farm that ran Green it is hard to step on a Red lot.

So far it seems that Kubota is the highest price tractor for what you get. So far there is American, Mexican, Indian, and Japanese tractors to choose from.
