This forum has such a large following and many of us have sizable tracts of property so I would like your help in selecting a tractor. I now have 18 acres of basically flat, slightly sloped property that will have to be mowed and maintained. I intend to plant pecan trees on the majority of the unused land and will expand my garden. I am interested in using a 5 ft. brush mower and a 5 ft finish mower for around the house. I need to maintain my driveway, clay/sand and small rock. Eventually I will add a tiller or single/dual row maker.
Since the purchase of the new, adjoining property was a cash sale cost is a consideration.
I tried the grey market Yan Mars but my butt doesn't fit in them, they truly are made for smaller people. I really like the Kubota L3400 and the comparable John Deere but I can't touch the Kubota for under 13k and the Deere is even further out.
I am very interested in the Mahindra 4025. 41hp, 2 wheel drive, standard with power steering. The tractor seems to be built like a tank and the dealer is withing 20 miles of the property. The tractor is also priced almost 3k less then Kubota
Anybody have an opinion about Mahindra?
