    Default Re: B2920 not a popular tractor

    The B2920 is identical to the B2620 except for the engine and the hood decals. I know the 2620 is a very popular seller. So I wouldn't have reservations about either in terms of parts, etc.

    When I was shopping, the salesman was aiming me at the 2620, saying that the 2920 was $700 more and all you get was 3 extra HP. Well I got to thinking about it, and decided the extra HP was a good idea, and I have never regretted it. Especially when running my wood chipper off the PTO. It may only translate to a an extra 1-2 HP at the PTO, but the more the better.

    I would get what you want from another dealer and then go back and tell him why.

    Or if it is just a salary salesman, then tell the manager or owner that you are calling BS on the salesman.

    I was given the same talking points, but they never said the b2920 was unpopular. In fact I called around, and a more rural dealer said they would never sell anything smaller than the b2920. The b2620 and the b2920 are practicly the same. There are a lot more differences between them and the 2320. I really didn't see an advantage in the 2 extra hp, and I have never regreted saving the 1k. I mainly wanted the clearance and extra lift over the small one, so the b2620 was where I ended up. I love using it with the fel, rfm, and a tiller. Always plenty of power for what I throw at it.

    I run a wood chipper off mine too, which was the main reason to get it (and that it was the most commonly available used when I looked). In that application you can use as much HP as you can get, and I figured no one ever complains about having too much HP, but have too little and its a costly fix!

    I sold it last year and got the 2620 used for a good deal. But if I hadn't found that deal, I was going to get a new 2920.
    Yea, thats total bunk. Zero reason to worry about parts.

    I agree with everyone else. Its a bunch of crap. I have a 2920 at home and a 3000 at work. I stepped up from a BX 22 to the 2920. I have had it for a little over a year now and have had absolutely no issues at all. There is only two things I wish I had and that is a hydraulic thumb on the backhoe and an alternator. I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

    Hey Flyer, better update your tractor info. It says on the side you still have the BX.

    What a tractor dealer or appliance dealer .... has is stock
    A sales person who doesn't listen to YOU always has something better that you need in stock.
    A GOOD sales person listens to you and will hunt down what you want if they don't have it or at least try first.

    Parts not available? That salesman needs a different job. They are still made- how can parts be hard to get?

    In all fairness, and I am not certain if it was only fallout after the tsunami, I have encountered trouble getting a radiator hose. That is something that should not be that hard to get. Dealer made good though. I like my dealer. Wish I had more money to spend there.
