I have an opportunity to buy a 6month old machine with about 100hrs from a school district that uses them to maintain baseball diamonds. Both models are ehydro/ 4wd/with 3rd SCV. Need to maintain 14 acres, mow lawn (4acres),landscape, push snow, dig post-holes, and run a 72" rotary mower. I think the 3520 for $16500 is the one I should shoot for since I have the 72"rotary. Also can buy 300cx loader for $2250 and 72"MMM for $1500. Any opinions on the 3520 vs 3320 for a $1000 more? I always like to lean towards the higher power per weight ratio.

$16500 is not a bad price for a 3520 with mid pto. $2250 for the FEL and $1500 for the 72" MMM is a smokin' good deal provided the hours are similar. I would definitely jump on that deal. Be sure to verify that the required OEM maintenance was properly done or change all of the fluids and filters as well as grease all of the fittings. Basically go over the machine as per the operator's manual and establish a good maintenance baseline. Is this tractor equipped with the MMM mount frame and hydraulics? ....

Almost missed answering. I would DEFINITELY lean towards the 3520. You will surely appreciate the extra hp. The 3320 will do all that you care to do but the extra hp of the 3520 puts the icing on the cake. ....

Thanks for the advice. This tractor is set-up with all mounts and hydraulics, etc. I am leaning towards the 3520. I have a hard time justifying spending this much on a tractor, when I grew up driving 2wd Allis D-17's and D19's with slow hydraulics and slipping hand clutches. But the tractor is also a toy for this big boy, and I would like to do all my lawn prep and landscaping myself. Was also looking at a 2000 4300/4wd/hydro/72mmm/430fel, but that dealer wanted 16800. Way overpriced. For a few thousand more, I can have an almost brand new machine. ....

Man, for the money I'd go with the 3520. The extra power will be nice and handy whenyou need it the most. I went from an old Oliver 2wd to a 4310. Night and day difference. You will really like the MFWD and the hydrostat when doing work. Yes it's a toy, but it feels so good to climb on board. Smiles makes it much less like work. Digging in the dirt is fun! ....

Hey chris...

Would love to take a shot at the one you don't take. They both sound like good deals to me. Email me at clint at montcoinc.com
