    Hello there!

    Hello all,
    been looking to buy a JD tractor, and wanted to check in
    I have the tractors narrowed down to 2 models but still have not pulled the trigger, will be doing so early next week
    using for, I have 22 acres in NV and that is where its going to used at most of the time, cutting brush, I already have a brush hog, moving things around, post hole drilling, and all around general cleaning, not going to be diggin, like backhoe stuff at this time but possibly later, although I do have several attachments that I can use off my other tractor,
    anyways ,
    I do not know if this is the correct forum to ask but I'm looking at either:
    3320 or 3520
    both are with in about a grand of each other right now
    items

    front loader
    canopy
    deluxe front grill
    R4 tires
    and thats pretty much it
    so my question is I know they are both pretty close in everything except HP and PTO rating and if U all had the same chance to choose either one, which one would U all go for, I do not want to make a mistake or I should say the wrong choice on this as I'm going to drop some good hard earn money on this
    so please help this newbie out and please feel free to give me your input
    Bryan

    Welcome to GTT Bryan (Northoffrisco).
    I am not familiar with said tractors but would assume both are good units. Most members here are happy to spend others money so you came to the right place.
    I'll start, you probably want to add a set of forks to the outlay.

    Welcome, From Texas!



    I do not have firsthand experience with either of those tractors, so will let someone who "knows" them give you the best answer. However, all things being equal, I tend to go for the most HP.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    You definitely want a set of forks for brush clearing. I use mine most every day:

    Thumbs up Welcome to GTT!

    Bryan, if they are only within $1k, get the 3520. You never hear somebody complaining that they have too much power!

    Thank you for the warm welcomes, I'm pretty excited about this but just do not want to make the wrong choice, I put my hands on a 3320 and it is a nice tractor have not put my hands on a 3520 yet, but they are the same frame size and build size I think, I do like that fact the 3520 has a turbo and has more power, the prices are correct, just a grand difference between the 2 the 3520 is a grand more the the 3320

    I have look at other tractors too, some reason I come back the the Deere, not sure why yet

    That's simple! Probably because of GTT, bunch of cool people here.
    Good luck with your purchase.

    Welcome from the top of Maine! Only $1K more for the 3520 is worth it.
