    I am of the same opinion, I have never seen one that wasnt.. If all you ever do is yank the position control handle up or down, the 3pt rises and of course falls as smooth as silk.. Now with an implement on the back, the longer and heavier the better, try to SLOWLY raise the 3pt by slowly moving your hand to pull the position control lever up and back.. Your 3pt will rise with a series of jerks, it will not rise slowly. Imagine you had a box blade with a load of dirt in the box, and now you want to "feather" out the dirt at the end of your run without making a mound of dirt at one spot. You want to raise the lift slowly to "feather" the dirt out smoothly until it is all gone from the box. You will leave a series of ripples of dirt. Of course the lift will always fall smoothly.

    Now by telling you this, think of the thousands of loyal, kubota L2800, L3400, L3700, L3800, L3200 owners we have just PO.

    Be aware that the L3200/3800 have a jerky 3-pt hitch when lifted slow with weight on. It hasn't been an issue for my uses, but some people have problems with it. That has been corrected on the 3301/3901.
    I have that issue with my L2250, so I am used to it and believe I could continue to live with it to save 4k if I was to end up buying new.

    My L3200 I got a year ago is a bit rough, but I kind if knew what I was getting into. Older ones are a lot worse I hear. The L3301 I saw at a show was smooth when I tried it out (with a ballast box hitched up).

    Jerky or not don't let that keep you from buying a extraordinary tractor. If it does bother you it can be fixed under warranty, contrary to what some think.

    Actually, no it can't. Previous models would bounce violently. The L3200 & 3800 are just a little rough. All the fixes I've seen posted here haven't end up being recommended by their creators from what I've seen. kubota's stance has been "Its an economy tractor, if you want a better 3pt, get a Grand".

    Generally its not that big of an issue though. Get the dealer or seller to put an implement on & try some small adjustments. If it will work for your needs, great. If not, look elsewhere. Some are smoother than others, or look at a different model/brand.

    Mine isn't that smooth & irritates me when trying to do fine grading, but is otherwise fine. I knew what I was getting into when I bought it. Forewarned is forearmed.

    So has anyone else had experience buying this model and can let me know if the pricing is on target?
