Default Kubota B7800

Does anyone know of a comparative model made by any other manufacturer? Comparable in size, power and price?

Thanks.

I think the New Holland TC30 would be a comparable unit. I'm not sure of the price, though. Looking at the specs, they seem to be quite close size-wise. The TC30 has a position control 3PH whereas the B7800 has the 1/4-inching valve. I'm not sure if there is an upgrade for the B7800 or not, but that may be something to be aware of. Since the B7800 is HST, I assume you are looking for an HST unit? That's why I thought of the TC30. The TC30 looks like it has 2 extra PTO HP over the B7800, so if you plan on PTO powered tasks, the 2 extra HP wouldn't hurt.

The TC30 is a very close comparison. It is not as polished of a design as the Kubota, the fit and finish is not as good, as was posted - it does have POS control and better driveline efficency. The cost difference is about $1500 - you can guess which one is a bigger seller.

THe JD 790 is closer to the B2710 actually. There is not really a good JD matchup. Besides the aforementioned TC30 from New Holland, Agco makes a comparable size machine DX30 I think is the model number which is merely a rebadged _________. The Kioti CK30 is an equal except for a coupla frills and about 750 pounds. The Kioti is heavier! So it's better.

Cub Cadet issues a machine (2630 ???? ) which is also a rebadged sumpin or another.
