 new b2100 vs. used b2150 and dealer woes?

Well Ladies and Gents, have I got a can of worms. Through a lot of advice and information I found on the boards here (I Thank you all), I decided on my first compact purchase: a 4wd hst b2100, 60" deck, 6' rear tilt/angle blade, and loader. The package came it at a little over 17K.The first problem came up when the mower was delivered. The mower deck gave the symptoms of having one blade's pulley a slightly different size than the other two. There would be a clockwork regular clang from the blades, related to the engine speed. Checking the blades showed that two blades in question were making contact.. not every rotation, not even every other turn, but just hand spinning showed that the geometry between those two blades was changing.The dealer sent the delivery truck right back to pick the tractor up and return it to the shop. That was nice enough, so I can't complain about that service. I guess I'm a little curious how that could have slipped through their set up procedure, though.. and I'm again without a tractor until they get this sorted out. So, are setup mistakes normal?Now I've found out that the same dealer has on his lot a 4wd hst B2150 (not sure of hours or year), outfitted with a 60" loader, mower, and backhoe for a shade under 18k. I had told the dealer when I called initially that THAT was the configuration I was ultimately looking for(attachment-wise), but I settled on what I got because I can't afford a backhoe right now. (OK, I would have needed the grader blade added to the 2170's package..)All that said, I'm looking for input in the following areas:1) what are the noteworthy differences between the b2170 and the b2100?2) does the price of the used rig sound right, assuming has, say 500-1000 hours on it and is in good shape? I know, the ad doesn't address the deck size, so I assume it is smaller, nor does it address engine hours, so they aren't exactly bragging it being low. Ballpark guesses are fine.3) though I can't change it, did I do OK on the 2100's package?4) how 'cautious' should I be about this dealer, being that he didn't set up the tractor right, and he didn't even suggest a very similar used tractor that would have been closer to what I really wanted (given the 2100 and 2170 are at least close to being the same machine) and saved me long term money.5) would I be out of line switching to the used tractor, being that I haven't had the new b2100 at my place for even an hour?Sorry, I guess I'm mixing a lot of griping with questions, but this isn't what I expected making this purchase to be. Thanks for your time and responses.Vince

Man,that is a big can of worms.In respect to your dealer,a set-up on a new mower is usually done at the factory,I would think the problem might be in the timing of the blades,or the blades themselves.I don't know if Kubota mfgs. there blades or not,but I doubt it.The B2150 is a very good machine,but the price depends on;like you said,hours,condition,so on&so forth.I would much rather have a new unit with the full factory warranty.The main differances between the 2100/2710 are a 3 range hyro,4 cylinder engine,more fuel capacity and a more comfortable seat,just to name a few.I previously owned a 2150 and now own a 2710,after putting a few hours on the new one,I would never look back.
