Looking at trading my L2550 with BA400 loader for a L3430 HSTC with the L723 loader, dealer wants $16,600 to trade was wondering how this sounds in North Central IN.

You are a litle vague on your tractor and how the 3830 is set up and often the little things might add up.

My 2550 has 990 hours on it with ag tires and the BA 400 loader. My projects have simply outgrown it and I am afraid if I keep going I am going to break something. I use it a lot in the woods and have skidded logs over 30 inches in dia. with it around 10 feet long but that is about all she will do. I have a woodmizer and I need something bigger to stack logs and wood there too. I mow some and do a little of everything you do on a small farm. Moving round bales is another thing I can just do with the 2550 but not with all of my wheels on the ground all of the time.
The 3430 hstc has the R4 tires and the L723 Loader. Basic cab no radio but work lights front and rear. No rear wiper and the basic defroster setup. No Remotes but a set of pallet forks for on the loader and the 72 inch heavy duty bucket. Loader has quick detach for the bucket.

Mike, From what I see you have been doing I am thinking a little different then you. I haven't seen to many tractors come out of the woods unscared from limbs and trees so I often recommend a cab that doesn't have to much plastic and glass. I know that the glass that's in the Kubota cabs gives the operator great visability as well as comfort from heat and cold. When they first introduced their cab tractors ten years ago they were an instant hit and it took years for the other companies to catch up and in the process we have seen a couple of so to speak (woods tractors) come back in for some expensive repairs.
I'd go up another chassis size to the four cylinder version and gain more on the hydraulics and weight as well, I'd look closer at the Curtis or Sims cabs as they do open up nice during the summer although they don't offer air conditioning.
I know the hydro has advantages in different jobs for performance but much of what you've described but I'd tent to go more with the GST transmission or the gear drive by nature here depending on who's operating the tractor. The new Grand L series has a new configuration for the hydro that has some features to it that might make it a better choice yet. It also has some fuel savings built into it that is going to set the industry back with a proven design from their lawn mowers.
These are just some thoughts for you to ponder, your old L in many areas that the weight was displayed was less the wheels and tires and it actually weighs very close to the 3430 depending on the ballast that you've been using.
