    Guys, I will be moving and downsizing soon. I have a L3010
    w/ 220 hrs, Befco 6ft finish mower w/ same hours and a 5ft box blade. I am told its all worth $11,000. I may have a chance to trade even for a brand new BX2230 w/ 5ft deck only w/ my local dealer. The BX would suit my needs, what would you guys do?

    The 2230 should cost you about $10K depending on where you live. The 3010 could easily be worth $14K depending on what model it is. Go to

    and price your tractor model. You'll always do better financially selling it yourself. People overpay for tractors on ebay all the time.

    Thanks for that great info, I will post to let ya know what I finally do. At $11,000, ( GST ) model I wouldn't lose too much. I have had two local dealers tell me thats what they would be asking on thier lot. We will see.

    BTW, I know it seems crazy to trade these two, but around here ( Wendell NC ) you can get a brand new L3130 for $12,500 or so if the dealers feelin good. After tax there is about a $400 difference if I was to sell mine. Plus, I would be gettin a couple of xtras, boxblade ect...

    I may have a buyer Mon, if not the dealer said we can trade, he will throw in a few extras. Does anyone know how much hassle it is to change blades on the BX series? I guess I have been spoiled the the rear deck on my 3010!

    It takes me about 20-30 minutes to change blades on my BX (60 inch mmm). I roll the deck out and tilt it on its side using the wheel kit that Larry Cohenno sells (moweraxle.com). I use an inpact wrench to remove the nuts and a torque wrench to tighten them. I also inspect and lube the mower at the same time.

    Some people run the frontend up on ramps and change the blades while the mower is attached. I suspect you could do it in 10-15 minutes using that method.

    Sounds like a good way to go, and I will take a look at the kit you mentioned. Already have the compressor. Thanks
