    Default john deere 3032e review and oil and temp gauges

    Hi everybody I would like to update my review of my 3032e. My previous post was a while ago. I now have 56 hrs on it and can't complain one bit .It did have to go in for warranty work for a leak from the loader control joy stick unit. The dealer picked up and had back to me next weekend (vacation home only up on weekends but tractor was fixed in 1 day) dealer was great about it .since my last post which it had only 25 hours. I have really worked this machine. I bought a 5 foot king kutter box blade for landscape work and leveling out my 700 foot driveway .the machine has no problem pulling the box blade. I have used the JD forks for many things unloading my truck of bricks etc for land scape projects. We have 7 acres to tame which is mostly wooded .I used this tractor to make trails though the woods and move down trees and dig up stumps or pull out stumps . This tractor has plenty of power .see pic of stump I dug out with loader. I have changed all fluids and filters on machine and it is easy to work on. I added the oil and temp gauges which I love .the two gauges and sending units and wire fittings etc cost about $75 .the gauges are marine gauges that are scratch resistant and domed to shed water. now when operating I feel better knowing what the temp and oil pressure is. If I had to do the tractor purchase all over again I would not think twice about buying a 3032e.

    I've had my 3038E about 18 months with only one problem. I had to replace the battery at 14 months.

    I'd like to see more about your gauge installation.
