Which Kubota?
« on: January 05, 2022, 09:40:09 pm »
Two Kubota for sale locally that I could maybe squeeze into the budget!

B8200 or a B1550

Both 4WD hydrostatic.

I need something to move round bales (not necessarily lift them more than 2 but just move from one place to another). These are probably around 300kg?

It would also be used for muck heap tidying with a front loader, general grassland management (harrowing etc) and towing a small water bowser.

Would either of these manage this? Or do I need something beefier?

Any thoughts appreciated!

Personally I'd say something bigger would be better, but depends on the space you have. I have an L1361, which is the baby of the L series but I love her! Big enough to go anywhere (well anywhere I have tried!) but small enough to move round small areas and some of my gates are only 7 foot and she will fit through them.

The B series I think would stuggle to lift a 300kg bale on the loader, but might do it on the rear linkage. The problem I find is that the implement you need to attach to the loader/rear linkage is often so heavy that it limits what you can lift.

However the L series will be quite a bit more money, I've still not told my wife how much mine cost!  ;D

Kubota is the make to go for so you're on the right track!
