Hi all, my first post!
I have a 3720 and am looking at a used 375A for about 4000. Deere says I need the 375, but the 375 mounts so much more easily. I have looked very closely at the 3046R and its little brothers, pictures, tape measure... as far as I can tell they are the exact same thing, just painted a different color. My dealer is checking with Deere to try to figure out what the issue is, but I'm thinking of buying it anyway. As close as they are, if I can't adapt it, I m sure a welder could.
Another thing, I have looked for instructions how to install the mounting kit, in particular the linkage adapters(At least that's what I think they are) - same for 3000 twenty series and 3R - but I can't find a single thing online. Im a little concerned my bargain backhoe will be missing crucial pieces. Seller is a JD dealer so I'm going to hold them to it.
Well that is great news :good2: , so how about a detailed thread with pictures and any part numbers needed?I can now say this: Deere says three thousand twenty series takes 375 hoe. They say 375a won't fit. I can find no evidence anywhere of 375a fitting three thousand 20 series. Horse pucky. I finished mating my 2013 3720 to a 2017 375a last night, and I even dug a hole in the dark
Hello capp0021, I am also highly interested in installing a used 375A on my 2008 3520. I have some serious excavating tasking to accomplish and I want the ease of mounting and dismounting of the 375A for my 3520. Did you ever jot down the steps to complete the installation?I started taking pics to document the install but quit when it became too much of a pain with greasy hands. Also, it got quite difficult to get the mount plates into place. I thought the left side was hard, but the right took that to a new level...i have all the extra hydraulics, which had to be removed then reinstalled... no room to work in. I have a few pics during, some after. I'm writing this from my phone now, I don't see how you post pics...
I like the idea of this site, seems like nice folks here too, but the site seems hard to use to me
