Hello all, been a long time JD fan. came here for instructions on installing BW16138 kit on my 3320 and found exactly what I needed.

Past machines in order of purchase
Takeuchi TL140
JD 4200 w/ backhoe & FEL
JD 1025R w/FEL


Current Machine
JD 3320 FEL 300CX

Bit of an odd purchase order however there was a reason, I bought the TL140 used, it worked great to clear and level my little 1 acre of land. I needed to do some drainage work so I sold the TL140 for slightly more than I paid for it and bought the 4200. Got done with all the trenching and needed a smaller machine for maintenance mode which is why I went with a NEW 1025R.

We recently bought some land up in PA that we want to clear for recreational use I was debating on running a brush hog or flail mower on the back of the 1025R but I was afraid it would be too much for that little tractor. After a bunch of research I decided it was time to sell and move up to something a little bigger (I was very sad to see it hauled away). I was hunting for a larger machine for weeks and found 2 in VA worth looking at. First was a 4700 that looked great in pictures with 1200 hrs. Well leaky injector pump, broken hour meter and stuck SCV valves made me walk away in minutes. We then went to look at the 3320. It didn't have an FEL but was listed with a finish mower being included for 11k. The machine only has 33x hours and was garage kept for most of it's life, needless to say it's in very good condition. We settled on a final purchase price of 7,500. Super nice lady, her husband passed suddenly and she was in the process of downsizing everything. While loading the tractor the she pointed out couple more attachments that she wanted taken away also.

I ended up with:
JD 3320 W/33x hours
Land Pride finish mower
Bush Hog
rock rake


I had hunted around for a used FEL but I guess they are seldom separated from tractor which makes sense. So on a Friday I called the local dealership to order a new 320R(300CX) loader 5.5K OUCH! Got the quote and was ready to pull the trigger. A day prior I did a hail mary and messaged a guy on FB selling a 4 series tractor that had a 300CX to see if he was willing to sell just the loader. and I **** you not right before I was about to order from the dealership I got this reply... "no the loader needs to stay with the tractor, however I have a 300cx off a 3320 coming in next week if you are interested" I about fell out of my seat... really!


the following Tuesday I went and picked up the loader complete with brackets/manual and bolts

So in the end I paid a total 10.5K for my 3320 w/FEL which happens to be the exact price I sold my 1025R for.
