I just picked up a 332....
Runs well, seems to be in "ready for work" condition.... but needs some cosmetic cleanup.... power wash, and a bit of paint.
I'm starting this thread thread for the cleanup, and partial restore (not a ground-up rebuild) of my new baby tractor, as I am sure I'll have questions, comments etc., as I am not too familiar with that line of Deere's...
Need to check the SN's to get the year, but it's configured as follows:
1. Base Tractor - no rear PTO, and no 3PH, 1,400 hours.
2. 46" deck - runs well
4. Chains, wheel weights, and suitcase weights
All of them need paint. The Seat is new on the tractor though.
Battery charger works fine, so does the TDCM and glow plug. Starts fine, but needs 1/2 throttle when cold. Once warmed up, starts at idle power setting. Electric clutch works fine. Park-brake needs adjustment as it will not "set". Rear tires are in good shape - front ones are good in terms of even wear, but the thread is thin. Will consider replacement.
The PO was the 2nd owner. 1st and original was the neighbour - both took care of it well. Was told the 1st owner and the PO followed the scheduled maintenance religiously.
I have all info, including the original manual. However, I will give it a full maintenance go-over, to make sure it's ready for the season. Also will need to find a 50" deck, as the 46" will take a long time to cut my 2.5 acres.
This bad-boy is going to complement the 2305 I have.... but since this spring I need to keep the 2305 in TLB configuration at the cottage for a few months, this one will do "house-chores".... ie lawn maintenance.....
all for now... will probably start working on it in about 2-3 weeks (need to finish basement project first)
