Hi all! I have been doing a lot of reading various forums, finally brought home a 2007 JD 3320 this afternoon. It has been well maintained, and has 243 hours on it. Yes, it has been run over the years, it has not been left sitting, so should not have bad seals. No cab, just a front end loader. It has not problems that I am aware of. It is my plan to put a backhoe on, now to decide between the JD backhoe or a smaller, less expensive one from Woods. Most of my backhoe work will be light work, some trenching, a very small tree here and there. Maybe handling some larger tree sections already cut.

I already have a 1967 JD 2020 that has served me well, but wanted something smaller that I can clean up stalls with, and move around inside the barn. I will keep the 2020, as I do put up some hay, so need to run a 5 disk mower and a baler. I have not yet unloaded the tractor from the trailer. Tomorrow I will get to go play with it and see how it does in the sand we have here.

Don't have any questions or issues yet, just very happy that I have made a decision and can quit looking endlessly for a small tractor. I have ten acres, about 6 in pasture. Four neighbors, one of them my daughter, all have about 4 acres each, and I am the one with the tractor, so get to do an odd job for others from time to time. Usually that is mowing, raking, baling, picking up and stacking hay, or flailing pasture weeds.

:hi: Hi Dave, you said
It has not problems that I am aware of.
I think, that's normal. Remember how much tractors JD build in the last nearly hundred years and how less users write about their tractor probs in the forums...

Thanks all for the warm welcome. I don't have any pictures to post yet. Have a couple in my cell phone, but need to move them to the laptop to post. Put about two hours on the tractor today, learning how it works. So far, the one really outstanding thing I have learned is that when you are in 4WD, and backblading with the bucket down and the front wheels a bit in the air, you don't have 4WD. Who would have thought that??? :banghead:

Here is my old JD 2020, made in 1967. Not sure where it was actually made, I know the engine design came from Mannheim, Germany. I bought this about 20 years ago for around $9000, and it has paid for itself many times over. It is lifting up part of a Paul Scale that my daughter got for free because it was broken. I restored it so my grandkids can use it with their livestock showing.

Welcome from northeastern Pennsylvania.

2020's sold in the USA and probably Canada were built in Dubuque, Iowa.

You have a good looking pair of tractors.:thumbup1gif:

Hi Marlin! I used to live just outside Gaston on the road to Laurelwood. I could look across my pasture and see town straight west. Just a couple of houses past the crazy ladies house; she probably isn't alive anymore.
