    Default branson?

    i am looking for a tractor and am moving to the branson 3510i with loader and brush hog and i was wondering if anyone has had any problems with it and if you thought it was well built or not?

    I bought one a little over 1 year ago. Have 100 hrs on it with no issues, with the exception of a Dealer error which resulted in the hoses for my remotes being hooked up wrong (dealer response was immediate, and complete).

    Well-built, well equipped, and heavy. If you're looking for a lawn mower - Look elsewhere. I have mine ballasted, w/ FEL and 6' Box-blade, to around 6500# (I want mine to be heavy). I liked the operator's platform, since I'm 6'4" tall, and go 290# when I'm wearing my "skinny" pants. Simply put - It fit me well, when a lot of other units didn't...

    Be sure to get the SS QA BL10-S loader, as it will let you effortlessly change between buckets, forks, grapple, etc. You will be buying some of that stuff once you experience having a capable FEL on a FWA CUT. I run 5' KK rough-cut mower thru 3-4' marsh grass with mine, and wish I had a 6-footer.

    Also - Make sure you have a good dealer. Close buy doesn't hurt either...

    Ditto on the "Well built, well equipped, and heavy comment. I have had mine for a year and a half and have 140 hrs with no problems.
    Also cannot stress enough the importance of the dealer you choose, it makes all the difference in the world. A "good deal" on a tractor will leave a bad taste in your mouth if you need dealer support and don't get it.

    I have about $700 tied up in grapple plumbing...Includes about 28' of hydraulic hose, and the remotes. Included installation...

    3510 is a very handy machine - I used mine to build my house before it got stolen.

    Sorry to hear about the theft, are you going to use the tractor to build another house?

    No, really am sorry to hear about the tractor theft. Thieves are among the lowest life forms.
