Default JD 3320, NH Boomer 35 or KubotaL3800

I thought I was set on the Kubota as the JD pricing is really up there. However, having gotten used to the pedals on my neighbors JD I just don't like the HST foot control but prefer the two pedals. It is probably something I can get used to either way.
I just saw the New New Holland Boomer 35 and am pretty impressed. Seems like a lot for the money and now there is a deal with a free loader $21,900. This gets the price into the Kubota range.

Any thoughts from the forum???
Thanks

Out of all of those, the only one I've seen up close is the Kubota L. The new boomer series I "think" are the new LS made units. I'm sure each one may have their own quirks that you may or may not like.
I would not hesitate on any of the three myself. Now that really helps ya doesn't it.....

Welcome to Net tractor Talk. SOme other owners may be able to offer my insights than I can. Those are a lot bigger than my NH TC18

Funny...I was just the opposite preferring the Kubota pedal setup over the JD..It's just a matter of getting used to the different method of operation. I'm a Kubota bigot but all 3 are good choices. If all else is equal, it will boil down how comfortable you behind is in the operator seat

Yup, I agree with Kanook. I wanted Green but could not justify the price difference. I went with Kubota and I'm glad I did. What a GREAT machine. I also have a very good dealer to back it up just in case but I have not needed that much over the past 9 years (my, time does fly).

Sit in all the seats and if the dollars are equal go with which ever one you are most comfortable on. I got used to the Kubota pedal with no problem. I prefer it that way now.

Welcome to Net Tractor Talk and have fun shopping. Talk to the dealers and get a feel for how they handle problem situations such as a broke down tractor ....how long of a wait, what would they charge to pick it up (if you could not take it there) etc.

How do, I was reading the threads and thought I would add my 2 cents. I am currently comparing kubota and nh and find the same points you list valuable. One other thing I notice is that the Kubota L series doesn't have a mid PTO while the boomer series does.
I am looking at the boomer 35 and the kubota L3800. Frame size, HP and such seem to be comparable but I haven't asked for a price yet.
