Welcome to the forum.
I think the Kubota L series is a much larger tractor than the JD2520. The 2520 is more the size of the B2630. So you should think about how big a machine you need to do the chores you have. If you need to work in tight spots the smaller size of the JD might be better suited. The B series Kubotas have a 3 range transmission. The 2520 has a 2 range transmission and is geared kind of high if that is a consideration. I know someone who used a 2520 with a Backhoe to do landscaping and he was very happy with it. They are a tough tractor and very reliable. I don't have any experience with the Kubotas.
