    Used 1025r 800hrs vs BX2670 85hrs

    Hi there,

    Have been reading the forum for a while and there's a lot of great information in it.

    I had difficulties finding durability and long term reliability information for 1025r.

    I've a very special opportunity to buy a clean looking JD 1025r with 800hrs, bucket and mowing 60" deck for $6k.
    What is a reasonable life expectancy for those tractors before major engine/transmission/etc rework needed?

    I also have an opportunity to buy for almost the same price a BX2670 with 85hrs also w. loader and 60" mower deck. Super clean.

    Which one would you get and why?

    I've 3 acres to mow that also needs clearing out of overgrown shrub, some leveliling, grading work to be done. Some bucket snow removal from a shortish driveway.

    $6k?

    The saying “too good to be true” comes to mind.....

    I would look at getting the Kob and then flipping it and buying the JD.

    Both really under priced, I agree, almost has to be a scam. Because of the lower hours I’d get the Kubota if these prices are real. If it were me I’d buy them both a sell one.

    Unless you know the person selling these items or you can see these items,, sounds like a scam to me..

    Both are way under priced.

    Apologies, I should have explained the price aspect.
    Those tractors were offered in lieu of long standing debt to a buddy of mine. He already has a nice tractor but knows I've been drooling over his, so he extended the offer to me.

    I guess what I'm asking is this.

    My tractor situation is, I've Simplicity Conquest 23hp with Vanguard engine. 450hrs on a clock.
    Those engines are expected to last 1,500hrs without major rework.

    My concern is, what is an average expected hours longevity for what appears to be an either lightly used, or non-abused, Yanmar on 1025r? With 800hrs on a clock, am I also only 700hrs away from a major engine service? How about transmission?

    I've heard Kubota is expected to last many 1,000s hours, but I can't find 1025r data.

    Is also Kubota 2670 only advantage over 1025r the hours on the clock in this situation?
    I've watched many Messick and Tom's videos and I'm really confused in which one is expected to be better.

    So your buddy that owes you $6K has how many tractors he likely could afford to buy while still in debt to, but not paying you?

    Bet there is a loan on both tractors.

    I wouldn't consider either if they are financed.



    As for the tractors. Both are good machines. Which one do you like.

    You didn't say if the JD had the auto connect deck or not, and that would only apply if you were installing/removing it often.


    As for the hours & longevity - it all boils down to how well it was taken care of and serviced. I wouldn't be afraid of a well cared for 800 hour machine.

    IMHO, 800 or 1500 hours on a Yanmar is of no real concern-these motors much like the Kubota will run trouble free for a long time with good regular maintenance and quality oil and filters.

    I’d want to know the use and maintenance history of them both before trying to make any decisions about which to get. The Deere could have been maintained meticulously for those 800 hours and the Kubota abused like a rental for its 85-you never know.

    "heard" isn't data.

    The Yanmar diesel engine is every bit as good as the Kubota engine.

    Properly care for and serviced, both will give thousands of hours of reliable service.

    Hard to believe that there isn't and data on the Yanmar engine.....
