Great ideas, thanks. The beauty of that harbor freight unloader is that you can convert any trailer to a dump trailer, does it hold up pretty well?
Need to make some decisions!

Thanks for your insights R Scott. We don't have a pick up unfortunately, any ideas for a prius lol.
I guts were telling me the JB would be an unfavorable move.. Our property does not have one level spot on it,
and sheds are scattered all over the place, so I need something nimble to navigate around with.

What about fuel usage on a cc vs a bx kubota, would I see significant savings over time with the diesel?

Are you referring to the rear blade for the tractor right?

The zero financing is a huge plus for me, I really don't want to have to do any repairs and don't want surprises either.
Fels seem to really hold there value as well, as used ones around here are $$$ as well. Seems like new is the best way
to go?

Would a compact bx serve all of my needs, or am i looking at needing something more down the road?
Thanks!

Hey, first post after reading many very informative discussions here and looking for some good advice!

My wife and I live on 2.5 hilly acres, about 1/3 is wooded and hoping to have 1/2 acre of permanent garden beds. We buy around 20 yards of mulch every spring and take as many wood chips as is delivered, usually 2 truckloads. We have no need for a tiller, but often wonder what life would be like with a fel. Oh, we also heat with wood so moving logs to the splitter and the splits to the house is accomplished with our cub cadet garden tractor 3204 with around 275 hours on it and a simple dump trailer. Our neighbor offered to mow our property soon after settling on the house, and now we just pay him to continue mowing. So no real immediate mowing needs. Plowing snow is another task that I would like to address, either myself or just paying someone to do it for us..

I'm pretty sure the cc has some life left in it, and I was throwing around the idea of getting a johnny bucket sr, but fear the bucket would lose most of it's value when the cadet dies? Stopped at a kubota dealer today and got a quote for a bx18-- with a fel and mower deck for 13,700 or 240/month with insurance. Should I try to sell the cc and bite the bullet with the bx, or ride out the life of the cc and make due with what I have?
I've also looked at the bcs walk behind, but given that I'm not planning on tilling, doesn't seem to make sense?

Thanks for any advice you can offer!
