    New Member - First Tractor

    Hi All,

    After about ~6 months of research, thousands of used tractor listings, many wasted drives, and seemingly endless frustration, I finally found what I was looking for.

    I purchased my first tractor this past weekend, a near pristine 2011 John Deere 3032e.

    Who knew it would be so hard to find a low hour, well maintained, used, mid-size CUT for a reasonable price??

    I can't wait to get out into our 19 acres and see what it can do, but first I need to buy... you know.. everything. So far I bought some chain and ordered up some Bolt-On Hooks from Ken's. Next on the list is a 5' box blade for much needed driveway maintenance, a 5' rotary cutter for our neglected pastures, and maybe a Ratchet Rake. Down the road a bit, I see some third function hydraulics and a grapple in my future, but I don't even know where to start with that.

    Glad you found what you wanted. There are definitely low hour machines out there. Sometimes they are indeed hard to find!

    Welcome to GTT CampyVA.
    I said it a thousand times, "The tractor itself is probably the cheapest thing you'll ever buy." Good luck.
