Spot on James, a good brand in one location, may not be the brand to own at a different location.

JD is the only tractor dealer that is not a minimum 3 hour drive. They are also the lowest price by about 4K.

Bender, if I may be so bold as to ask, how much is cash on the barrel head price?

Depends on the answer I get after I ask Wabi's question. If it's a cash price lower than finance vs 0 down and 0%.

IIRC 0% financing requires a certain percent down payment to secure the note. Maybe new offers are more generous.

That's the way I bought my 12' batwing shredder. 0 down 0 interest 48 months.

Why would I take money out of the bank when they offer that? smile

I mentioned earlier that I did the 0/0 with JD a few years back. Kubota had the same 0/0 at the time and I was open to either one. Kubota was around $2000 cheaper to pay cash, JD had no difference cash or credit.

I asked why, and they said they got a kickback from the finance company. Anyway, I didn't fall for it, as it was cheaper for me in the long haul to just pay for it up front. But, point is, you usually end up paying for what at first might seem like a good deal.

At 0% it was a no brainer for me. There is no downside (unless you miss payments). I did ask the salesman about it and he said JD was pushing the idea of financing to maintain a steady income rather than seasonal. It is financed through JD, not an outside finance company.

heres where it's at:


Kubota 2601 - 21,150
NH Boomer 24 - 23,000
JD 1023E - 17,000

All have bumper to bumper 2 year/6 year on drive train
All have 0 down/0% for 5 year, OAC

Choice is clear to me unless there is something I'm missing.

JD 1023 Kubota B2601
Weight 1345# 1632#
Engine disp 900cc 1123cc
Engine HP 23.5 25.5
PTO HP 15.3 19.5
Lift capacity 1433# 1808#

The Deere is listed as a subcompact tractor, the Kubota as a compact tractor. Whether or not the added capabilities are worth $4000+ and an all day trip to Anchorage to get parts comes down to how you'll use it. My friends older Kuboat (B2320 as I recall) looks to be closer to the size of the deere and for what it was, pretty darn capable.

Don't forget to factor in the cost of implements if you're planning to buy some additional ones down the road.

My son and I bought a sub-compact JD quite a few years ago. It is a 2210, loader and mower deck. We've used it for a lot of things......mowing, moving dirt and gravel, pulling a 4 foot tiller, digging postholes, moving snow, and other types of yard work. It's fine for what it's designed for, but there is a limit to what we do with it. That's why I have bigger tractors. These sub-compacts, Kubota, JD, NH, and others are great little machines.....as long as you keep in mind that they have their limitations.

A bit off topic, but, the reunion float I rode was pulled by the classmate's 1962 1010 Deere diesel.

Yeah, you're not comparing a real apples to apples there. Those two exact machines, the K will outwork the JD every time.

But buy local and green, and you'll never regret it. Ask for a price on the next size up JD.

I'm rethinking the needed size. Thanks to 458lott. I think the 1-series would result in buyers regret.

Size and capability explain the price difference.

Friend has a JD4005 I'm going to try out. 40 hp I believe.

Just as with boats and airplanes, as soon as you get your new one home, you'll start dreaming of a bigger one. Never fails. grin

I have a B2601. Bought it in Oct '15. Has about 170 hrs now. It has quick change fitting on the front. I have a bucket, forks, back blade, brush hog and a 63" front snow blower. I bet I put 50 hrs on the blower last winter. So far I could not be more pleased with this tractor. The blower was a life saver and it just worked without an issue. The tractor has been faultless. Knowing what I know now I might have bought a B2650. Not much different but a little heavier with a tad more lifting capacity, but I'm just fine with the 2601. There are many other fine brands available, Kubota is very common here and was the first dealer I can drive to, big parts/dealer/implements network, great resale and reputation. I added a set of Pats quick change hooks for the 3 pt hitch and like them very much.

Good point on the quick switch bracket on the loader. You don't realize how much, and often you will use it.

I currently use a JD 4105 for my horse/pasture chores. What ever brand tractor you decide is best for you make sure the tractor is fitted with an engine block heater.
