 John Deere JD 3320 vs JD 3720 with higher HP

Hello to all!

We're about to undertake building a new home on a 14 acre site. We'd like to do some of the prep work on the land before construction and all of the continuing grounds maintenance (including a future 2 - 3 acre garden).

The land: 14 total acres of which 5 is thick woods in need of thinning and some clearing. The home site is about an acre, including the home footprint.

The remaining 8 acres is pasture and a couple of really old maple trees. It would make an ideal spot for a 2 or 3 acre garden.

So, here's the situation... I'm leaning towards the 3320 (with cab) and the 300CX loader and a 60" BB Cutter. I'll add a finish mower after the house is built and the lawn is in. My local JD dealer has a zero hour 2006 with the 300 CX and seems eager to get it out of inventory. He tells me I can get the 3320 for "a little under $20,000 and the CX for $3,400."

I know I can get the 3720 with the same equipment for another $3,800 and am questioning if the additional HP is required for my tasks and worth the extra money.

I'd welcome any and all opinions.

Many thanks!

Rft31958,

I just checked the prices listed at tractorhouse.com

It seems to me that you should be able to get a brand new 2007 model JD3320, with the loader, for somewhere around $18,000.

Other than the price your dealer is asking, I believe you've found yourself the right tractor for the job. I see no reason to go with the bigger model, unless you're in a very big hurry to get the prep work done.

Congratulations! Enjoy your new home!

Joel

Go for the HP. I used a3320 with a cx300 and a woods rotary cutter(60"Wink yeah right for about 3-4 hrs before returning it due to a previously discussed problem with the dealer. I have about 16 acres,mostly fields.The tractor was a replacement for my 1984 950. I noticed a big difference in all around performance. I was not happy with the woods cutter since I had a jd cutter for 23 years with no problems other than replacing the seal more often as the cutter aged. I ended up at another dealer and bought a 3520,hydro,cx300, and a mx-5 cutter. I am very happy with this package and notice the difference in hp and the cutter.
I noticed on this site someone mentioned going to the JD website, checking out the list price of tractor and attachments, then deduct 15-16% off list. After shopping around this seems to be a accurate method of what a fair price should be. Good luck. Go with the higher HP.

Does the 3320 have a cab for 20,000? I paid 29,500 or maybe 28,500 (can't remember) for a 3520 cab 300cx loader 4n1 bucket and electric diverter valve and 60" mid mount mower w/turff tires. I bought mine when they first came out and they did not want to deal very much.

I have a 3320 without a cab, and use an MX-5 cutter on hilly terrain. It has enough power to do the job. Other than maybe getting it to go faster on hills while driving on the road, I don't need more power. But with a cab, there may be more weight, and power used for the A/C.

I moved up to a 3520 CAB from the 3320 Cab, as I received advice that with the AC on, and running a 72" MMM, the 3320 might be looking for some additional power. The price diff was not that big and the dealer was ready to deal and so it worked out. I have some slopes that 15 to 25 degrees and so I leaned towards more horses for the Cab unit.
