    Anything that fits a 2305

    I have a 2305 with a finish mower, bush hog, and snow blower. So I'm in the market for quite a few attachments/implements. Including but not limited to:
    - MCS 14/20 bushel system, or non-JD brand equivalent. I'd need the power blower part too, have a 62" inch (yellow) finish mower
    - Loader, any of the ones that can fit on the mounting brackets for a 2305
    - Backhoe, though I have no interest in a 3 point hitch only one
    - Aerator
    - Detacher
    - Fork lift attachment for the loader

    If you have something you want to get rid of that will work on a 2305 let me know.

    Also, if you're just perusing the thread and have a suggestion for an attachment/implement to get (even though you don't have one to sell) I'm all ears, always appreciate advice!

    Used loaders are tough to find, as are backhoes but they are a bit easier.

    I know you recently purchased your 2305, but adding these items can easily cost $6K or more, will you still be money ahead over the slightly used 1-series TLB?

    Yes, I believe so. It really depends on how much bargain shopping I do. I got a really good deal on the 2305, which I believe is because it didn't have a loader or backhoe.

    I do not foresee myself finding a backhoe that the work I'll use it for will justify the price. I'm seeing those starting at 6k and going up pretty quickly.

    The truth is I got this thing to use it as a snow blower. Anything else is a plus. I'm not expecting to get much, but thought I'd throw this out there and see if anyone has something laying around they never were able/tried to sell, etc.

    And yes, I'm seeing first hand how difficult it is to find a used loader.

    Some indication of your location may help local members who have the implement you are looking for or help you locate it on a local basis (CL, FB marketplace etc).

    Hint* fill in your profile!

    Just to give you an idea, I was offered full original selling retail price for my BH46. Anyone who has one is extremely unlikely to be willing to part with it at any sort of discount. I'd check tractor salvage yards however for the loader. Lots of these little SCUTs give up the ghost on the hydro pump (where it's cost-prohibitive to repair), so a loader should be much easier to find.

    Really? Where all the reports of failed hydro pumps on tractors?

    Yeah that's what I'm seeing too. Loader and BH are not easy to find at a discount. The thing is, I don't foresee myself *needing* a BH. I'll keep my eyes open, if something comes up that makes sense I'll snag it.

    I got a few quotes from local dealers for 3rd party backhoes. The cheapest so far was the Woods at 6200, including installation and subframe.

    I have what I *need* for this tractor to be of use to me. It's main/primary use will be removing snow from a long and steep driveway so my wife can get to work when it snows. I can also cut my grass with it (though, perusing the forum, I see that these tractors can cause damage to the yard in wet conditions so I'll keep my little riding mower for those times of the year.)

    Anything else from here out is just a nice plus to make life easier, and something for me to play with

    You won't find many current or prior gen SCUTs with 2K+ hours on the original pump.
