No idea on a deal, but I will say, you see more of these 25-35 horse tractors for sale than any other tractor. Its not because they are not a good tractor its because the buyer realizes they want something bigger. Id look at the next frame size if I were you. Just my opinion.

Big Tex is on I-30 just out of Royse City. Not sure where you are located. I think they are the largest dealer in the country.

Buy a deere and use my name and I get 350 bucks in credit.

I bought a 25hp deere after deer season. 72' belly mower, bucket and grapple I love it. It stays on a 2ac place and it's more than enough.

We have a 45hp at another property I have at my disposal though

I have a 2025r and it's been enough tractor for me to handle my 2.5 acres for the most part. I've got the bucket, forks, backhoe, brush cutter, post hole digger and box blade. 2 years and I've put 150 hours on her. Bigger tractors mean work gets done faster... that's nice and all but bigger tractors also mean more upfront costs.

Another thing to consider is JD has the highest resale value.

I like my 26 hp kioti tractor. Lifts more than the others at the same size, better warranty. If you can find them. I've been told most places are sold out. Biggest issue with mine is, it's loud and sounds like it's trying to throw a rod out of the engine.

Get on them and make your educated choice! If you need a FEL try them out on all of them- they ain’t all equal by far. Check for Sloppy functions, sloppy pins and movements. Just because they may lift more doesn’t make them better. Look at engine HP vs Pto HP. Steering slop ETC. ETC. . Check for same slop on the 3pt along with all of the linkages. Do you want your steering cylinder, linkage and hoses in front of the steering axle or behind?

I’ve always used Kubota.I just bought a 2501 ttl out the door was right at $25,000.I think 26 HP is largest you can get without the emissions system.I have a 33HP that has had lots of emission system problems.From what I hear the medium sized engines just dont produce enough heat to make the exhaust emissions work properly.

I bought a 3025 JD & it’s plenty of tractor for my place. Mostly mow with it, some disking, got a landscape rake, boom, & added a finish mower
I also put the pirhana tooth bar on my bucket & it shears off small saplings to help clear some light overgrowth

I'm in the market and looked at the branson locater but the location closest to me doesnt have their tractor on their website
https://bransontractors.com/dealer-locator/
Concerned about the service as well, may call the dealer

Their packages deals look pretty good

Not sure on the current tractor package deals. I had a ~32hp 4x4 Kubota and upgraded to a 47hp 4x4 Kubota. Still have both on the property and they each have their place. Like others have said the 47 hp is hands down better on bigger jobs, but the smaller tractor is better on certain things in the brush. Just depends on what the majority of your needs are going to be. I would go Orange or Green, but I'm old school. My dad thinks I should of went green, he is older school than me. My next tractor will be more hp and have a cab, but that is the progression in tractor ownership.

If you buy a tractor in the 25-32 hp range and plan on working it very hard you need to make friends with a good mobile welder. If said tractor is red you might want to put your welder guy on retainer.

I own and have owned a good number of tractors in different brands. In that size I’d buy a Kubota and won’t own a tractor without a fel.

I have the 1025R with the qd on the mower. It's been a good unit and my wife isn't afraid of it. Only complaint is you have to hold the pto button to mow in reverse. It could be quieter as well

I wanted something I could also mow between the pine we had planted on or family land. The other tractor is too big. I need rear ballast cause it will get on 3 wheels using the grapple

I have a Kubota B2601 with front end loader. I bought a 5' brush cutter and a 5' box blade. Paid $21,000 a couple of years ago. I have about 120 hours on it. I got right before Covid shut everything down as far as tractor inventory went at the time.

I have added pallet forks, a 6' disc, and installed a Piranha toothbar on the front end loader bucket. It has been a great little tractor. I mow, put it food plots, push snow, grade the driveway etc.

I am an Orange buyer/ owner so I a partial. I have one small kubota that’s a 79’ still going strong. I bought a l3901 in 2019 with multiple attachments. These newer models with all the different attachments, quick attachments make these very versatile.
I wouldn’t think you could go wrong with buying any of the brands that have been around for decades. Good luck in your search.

Man, I looked at that mower implement and decided for the cost it was a better deal to just buy a stand alone. For the same money I settled on the x350 and it's been good. A lot of folks say get a zero turn but I have a lot of slope on my lot so it wasn't an option.

That said I might have a package deal if youíre interested. L3700SU hydrostatic 4x4 with FEL and just under 1k hours, shredder, Box Blade, landscape rake, auger, small disc. Was planning to list this spring but I could use the $$ elsewhere. $15k. PM me if interested.

Slop can be an issue with a ztr. I hear atv tires help. I have a zero turn at home and have used if at the lake. Once we retire up there and the yard is smoother, I'll mow with a zero and use the tractor for something else.

I had a deere mower that I sold here that was 17 years old and still ran well enough to cut. They'll last if you take care of them

Normangee Tractor used to run some pretty good deals. Always bought Kubota in the size I was buying since the K had a better warranty than the JD. Not sure that is still the Case (whoops, didn't mean to add another brand). Never needed the additional warranty on the K. I was told in that size that they are all made in the far east. Only big JDs are US made.

Hmmm…
If so then Why don’t they have more dealerships? It’s ok if you purchase one and you are local Then, but what if you move? I don’t agree.

I’m not against them but that is really My main concern.

I've got LS XR4040. Had no problems then the DPF and ECU went out just outside of warranty to the tune of $6000......I bitched to LS corporate about it, a known problem, and they ended up covering the cost. That was about 500 hours ago and no problems since with the regen but I cringe every time it does it which is about every 5 hrs. On my LS FB owners page the newer ones regen alot fewer times about every 30 hrs or so and I think they've got the problems fixed. I've also been careful keep above 2000 rpms most of the time and change out fuel filters and put Diesel Kleen in tank every time. Dealer and service locations would be downside of LS, they seem to let anybody with a lot sell them.......they actually make tractors for Case IH and New Holland and I got my starter from Case IH vs LS.....ended up actually being the battery cables but I now have the Case IH starter on it. I got alot of tractor for the money vs JD, Kubota, etc....but if there isn't a reliable dealer near I would pass, there is RCO in Greenville but I bought mine as a demo from Wright Tractors in Oklahoma City.....parts were an issue during covid but that was all of them......LS Motron has made alot of tractors for the name brand companies. I currently have 1100 hrs on mine.

Another note on LS tractors, I've seen them for sale at some trailer places and I can tell they have no service facilities on site, it's pretty obvious. I bought hoping the brand would really grow......I would likely look hard at Massey or Case IH since I have long time dealers close by......of course there are JD and Kubota dealers all over as well.....there are also more resources for the main stream tractors on DPF deletes.......

I can see those forward mounted plastic fuel tanks getting damaged easily! Kubota has this also.


I think these tractors along with all of the other knock offís being great for the people that have properties that are already improved and they arenít worked heavily. Iím not just talking about shredding. Anything in the utility category that is equipped with a FEL and does a lot of bucket work along with clearing box blade and heavy cyclical work will make these tractors bleed IMHO and experience. Light use - go for it.

GOOD stuff guys! What's the smallest with a AC in the cab? 40hp, 50hp?
What is FEL? I'm not brand loyal but service is important as I don't like working on stuff. It will be moderately used .......mowing, pushing some dirt, trimming long existing forest roads, spreading rock, .....etc. Can't imagine much beyond that.
