Hi Guys, I looked at a Airens Grand Sierra 2200 today it has a cab and 2 stage snow blower approx 450 hrs No mower deck(I'm looking for a snow blower tractor have a couple of mowers) has wt, chains and hyd lift asking price is $2295.00 it was outside and raining so did not look it over real close but at first glance it looked good. What do you think having read the previous post it sounds like they are good snow blower units may have heating problems in the summer? Is the Kohler 22 hp engine a good engine and will it start in MN cold winter?
GB in MN
No heating problems here I keep a clean air filter on it and have never had a problem even mowing in the lower 90's in the summer. I have a 22 horse Kohler command in it and use this tractor year around. I purchased a 425 cc battery for 35 dollars and leave it outside alway's give it a full choke and it will fire right up even below freezing.
Just think it you were the owner in 2000 you would have paid 7300.00 for tractor, 530.00 for cab, 1900.00 for snowblower, that's 9730.00 ...
Sorry to dig up this old thread, but what does the Grand Sierra have in common with the older GT20? I know that the plastics were discussed as well as a more modern engine with less toque. Is the drivetrain the same? It looks as if they accept the same attachments.
It's easier to say different engine,hood,grill,dash. The torque numbers from what I have seen are equal at 39 or 40 ft/lbs. It's a good tractors in its day were the better tractors definately JD 430,JD 455 Yanmar diesels much more tractor than this one.
