I spent yesterday afternoon at the orange dealer looking at the B3200 Hydro. By the time I left, we moved to the L3200 gear. What a machine, I'm gonna buy it tomorrow!
As it turns out, the L series gear (clutch) drive is less $ than the lighter B series hydro and is offered with a $1000 rebate.....more machine, less $. Leaving out the hydro drive adds a little more power for implements, so those big rocks I'm gonna be up against may just get moving. There is much digging to do this summer!
Been wanting this for years now and it's finally happening.
