This is my first post, so I wanted to thank you in advance. I've already learned so much just browsing the forum.
My question is this: I read in another forum about the BM22286 Cat. 1 3-point hitch for the X700 series being discontinued and replaced with the BM23882 Cat. 1 3-point hitch. Upon looking at this attachment thru the build your own configurator on the JD website, I am directed here to the detail page: Discontinued - Category 1 3-point hitch
The detail page states that this new version is also discontinued as of Jul 31st, 2012. Has anybody out there purchased or ordered an x700 lately and been successful in getting the 3-point hitch? I'm still waiting to hear back from my dealer to see if he can get it for me... the suspense is killing me! I purchased the tractor just 2 weeks ago, and would hate to have to bring it back under the Deere 30 day promise and get a 1000 or 2000 series just to get the 3 point hitch.
