Right choice IMO, I bought a 2032r last year and its a great machine for me because of my hills and mowing. But you need your tractor to do those things and the extra weight makes a lot of difference for ground engaging. When I am doing ground work I add 600lb ballast and still wish I had more weight. You'll be happy with your decision, congratulations.:good2:

I went ahead and pulled the trigger. This is tax included at 3%. I'll be ordering a grapple and a few other implements while I'm waiting on the tractor. Thank you everyone for all your suggestions.

Congrats on the new tractor.

They are great machines.

Your money does you no good until you give it to someone...

Thanks. rtgt do you feel your 375A backhoe is sufficient for what you do? This is my first tractor and i want to make sure i get it right the first time.
Jut saw this post......probably a little late to respond now... You probably already have the equipment and are playing with it. :good2:

The 375A does everything I need it to do (so far). I know it will do even more, but it has to wait for me to catch up with my experience operating it. :laugh:

Hope you've got you new tractor by now.

Grapples are GRRRRRRRReat!

If you own a chainsaw and don't have child labor available....they are the best thing since electric start.

Lol @ "child labor available"

I did that as a kid, came home from school, started working wood with my dad til dinner was ready, came in and ate dinner, did homework, watched wheel of fortune and jeopardy (if homework was done), ate a small bowl of ice cream and went to bed at 8:30... repeat next day

Not yet. I decided to order a 2018 model. Hopefully mid December.

Depending upon what you are doing, a set of pallet forks might be just as good as a grapple, for far cheaper.

I've cut down lots of trees, cut them to a length the tractor can handle, then just slide the forks under, and move the log(s) where they need to go. I've also built a racking system in my barn and put seasonal/rarely used stuff on pallets so I use the forks to swap stuff around for storage.

For those that have a grapple, how are you doing the hydraulics for it?

VirtualGreen,
I installed the WR Long 3rd function hydraulic kit on my 2038R.... Check out my YouTube video on the installation.....

Hi - I’m currently in this SAME situation. How do you feel with your choice? I’m VERY conflicted. Need to decide quickly as the dealer is sourcing me a 2038R but deep down I wonder if I should just figure it out and get the 3039R?! However, I think the pricing is different now and just the tractor with the loader would be in the high 30s.
