Hey all. Great site. I've been a guest lurker here for some time. Always felt the forum was friendly and informative. I finally went and spoke to JD dealer today. Took a hard look at a 3320. Here's what I was quoted:

3320 32hp 4wd HST $16,895
300CX loader $3950
655 Tiller $2495

Grand total - $23,340

From what research I've been doing the numbers didn't really shock me. They have a great promo going on - 10% down - 60 months no interest.

So buying the JD loader is a no brainer. But would you buy a JD tiller? Or would you save money and get an after market brand?

Does this look like a sound deal? Should I take a peek at Bobcat?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

I just wanted to take a sec and welcome you to the forum. I'm sure there will be a 3000 series owner along very soon that can offer you some insight.

Scott,
I would consider adding the Frontier tiller and other options that you can especially with the 0% for 60. I am sure you can get other implements less expensive but they don't look as good as Frontier, which is made especially for John Deere. Are you going to get the imatch quick hitch? Price does not look bad at all. Im sure others will chime in. 20% of retail price may be a normal gauge to look at.
BTW, :MTF_wel:

Welcome to the forum! :Welcome1: I know of no one who has purchased a Deere/Frontier implement and then said what a mistake that was. You do pay more, but you are assured of a quality implement. Can you get an aftermarket implement that performs to your satisfaction and saves some chin-yang -- yes. :)

prices look good, but you might ask the dealer about a less expensive tiller that will fit the imatch, there are several brands that will be less than $2k.
there are quite a few Italian built just like the Frontier.

Hi Scott, Welcome! I too I'm new to this forum, but can tell you -- that sure seem like a resonable deal for a new machine esp. w/ 0% financing.
Most Deere's in the CUT class hold their value really well (check machinefinder.com only 55 found) and there's not a lot being re-sold by individuals (check craigslist.org). But wait, if you've got cash on hand, able to travel to pick it up and don't mind running a used machine - check this out this complete package deal I just located:
