Hey guys I am looking to buy a new tractor it will replace a Kioti DK 45. It's main uses will be moving round bales, brush hogging, clearing snow, and whatever other various things need doing around the barn. I'm looking to go a little bigger than the DK 45 and upgrade quality because the Kioti just has to many issues. 4x4 is a must as well as shuttle shift.

The two tractors I'm looking at are a Kubota 8040 and a John Deere 5205.

Do any of you guys have one of these tractors if so what are your thoughts on them?

Any specific things to look at on them?

Also the Snyc reverser on the JD has any one used it if so how well does it work?

Thanks in advance Patrick

The newer model JD utility tractors are available with either a Sync Shuttle or a Power Reverser. There is no Sync reverser. I have owned both, a sync shuttle on a 5520 and a power reverser on a 5625. Both work well but the power reverser is almost certainly the better choice moving hay and snow.
