I have been toying with the idea of selling a few of my old pieces of equipment I use to maintain my small 2 acre home and buying a cut. I was looking at Kubota, John Deere, and Massey Ferguson. I ended up choosing Deere, I like the side by side pedals for the hydro, a good close by dealer, and made in the USA by an American company.
I was only looking at the larger 2 series because my main mower now is a Cub Loboy 154 and I like the larger size, and the other piece of equipment I'm replacing is an old Case Terra Trac crawler loader that weighs about 3-4000 pounds. The 2 series won't lift as much or have the traction of the crawler, but I'll get used to it. What really pushed me over the edge was trying to repair and find parts for 40 and 50 year old equipment.
I ordered a 2032R with H130 loader the weight box and hood guard, and 62" mmm. I ordered it last week and take delivery next week, and I tell you this is a long 2 weeks! I have already been eyeing up a set of Artillian forks among other mods/ attachments
