Mahindra 1533 VS. Branson 3515

I was blind-sided the other day by a neighbor who stopped by to ask my opinion of what he called “That little Mahindra tractor made by Mitsubishi”

I’m sure my blank stare said it all, But I told him I’d get back to him about it. I researched the Mahindra company web site and some of my favorite forum sites. Then I built a comparison chart between the Mahindra 1533 and The closest Branson Tractor I could find, the 3515R.  The winner in each category is highlighted.

NOTE: The Branson loader capacity is with the new standard equipment BL150 Loader.

  As for prices, I contacted several Mahindra dealers but could not get any of them to commit to a sale price. Mahindra Tractor Co. has a suggested price of $26,880 for the tractor with loader. Our everyday cash price on the Branson 3515R loader package is $18,800. (almost $10,000 less)

As a general rule, I try not to trash-talk a competitors machine. I let the numbers speak for themselves and the readers draw their own conclusions.

If any of you have equipment questions or have a tractor comparison you would like to see, Please shoot me an email at
