    Oh my, the juices starting to flow thinking of a new tractor. The wife's 40th birthday is next month wonder if she'll be happy with a tractor?

    Maybe time to call Barlows and see what can work out, may also see what they have as far as used, not opposed to that either.
    The B will run a 6' RFM or MMM. I had a 6' cheap RFM which kept breaking on my rough hillside, gullied rocky land. I traded it to a 6' Landpride RFM which was about twice as heavy and built like a tank. Barlows gave me the $1250 I paid for the cheapo on a $1750 Landpride.
    There was no issue with power at the PTO for either mower with the B7800, L3240 or B3200 but the Landpride would sort of swing the B tractors at the bottom of the hill when I made my turn, no problem after learning that it would do it. It never swung the L3240 in any way. The L3240 handled it like it wasn't even there except for steep hills where it would tax the HP of the heavier tractor on the steepest incline, not the PTO but the tractor pulling power.
    People used to have little push mowers for close trim and some still do. Me in areas to narrow to get my 6' Front deck F3080 into. I spray the tight areas also some times....or my wife does and my maintenance guy at the rental property does.The RFM is great for open ground and can get up close on the side if there isn't tractor twisting in tight areas.
    I think Barlows will be a great place to start your research.

    I have owned both the b2620 and the B3200. The B3200 is bigger, but more comfortable to operate. When I would run the b2620 for an hour or more, mowing, my right leg and hip would feel cramped. I am 6' and about 200lbs, so I am not that big. I am far more comfortable on the B3200. I just wish the steering wheel was about 2" higher, because I hit my knee on the steering wheel if I am in a hurry to exit the tractor.
    The b2620 is light in the front end. When mowing with an RFM or rotary cutter, with out the fel on, the front axle would slide down hill if operating on a slope. The B3200, which has a 4 cylinder engine, does not have this problem.
    The B3200 fel is stronger than the fel on the b2620. I moved a large rock with both tractors, at different times. The b2620 would pick the rock up just enough to move it. The B3200 picked up the rock at idle and it would lift it as high as needed.
    The B3200 is a little more expensive than the bxx20's, but in my opinion, it is well worth the extra dollars.

    Mowing vs loader work is a tough call. Usually, for mowing you want a lighter tractor for less compation & chance of ruts. For loader work you want as heavy as you can get. B2X20 are 4' wide vs 5' for the B3X00 frame. Don't overlook the B3300SU if you don't care about mid/front impliments. Same tractor as a 3200 without the mid pto and a couple other creature compforts but cheaper to offset and a couple more hp at the rear pto.

    For the flat ground, if you don't have a lot of trees to get around, I'd go with the 6' mower in a heartbeat.

    If go with the 3200 most likely would go with a rear finish mower. So the B3300 is same tractor except for the mid pto? What other reason would I need a mid PTO in the future if not using a MMM? Definitely won't need a snow blower or anything like that here in Arkansas. Guess need to add that one to the list to look at.

    Definitely have more mowing than loader work but after mowing for almost two years the yard could definitely take more tractor.
    Thanks

    As JT mentioned you might do well to look at the L's. The L3200 could be a good fit for you. Stronger loader and more tractor to handle it. I wish the new L's were out when i bought my b3200 because I think I would have ended up with it instead.

    I use a 5' rotary cutter in tough 4' grasses with my B3200. Never used a finish mower though.

    I don't remember all the differences now but there is enough that when I was shopping, it was the same price as the B2920 and alot less than the B3200.

    It has the 15x19.5 rear tires like a l3200 and 3800. I am not sure what the fronts are. I like the larger tires.

    [QUOTE=TigerfaninAR;3172549]If go with the 3200 most likely would go with a rear finish mower. So the B3300 is same tractor except for the mid pto? What other reason would I need a mid PTO in the future if not using a MMM? Definitely won't need a snow blower or anything like that here in Arkansas. Guess need to add that one to the list to look .

    The biggest and really only difference physically between the b3200 and the b3300 is ONLY if you get the standard b3300 r4 tires. The 3300 has the larger r4 tires front and rear like found found on the L3200 (like94bullitt wrote) But, if you get turf tires or ag (r1) tires there is NO difference in tires for the b3200 or b3300 and then they will have an identical stance. If your dealer cooperates you could order the smaller r4's for the b3300 that are standard on the b3200. That is what I did but I had some particular reasons for doing so.

    The other differences are no cruise control on 3300 (optional about $100.), 25pto hp on 3300 vs 23pto hp on 3200, no mid pto as you're aware on the b3300, a step is standard on 3300 (optional for 3200). Another thing is with the larger r4's most seem to opt for the 60" fel bucket to cover the wider width of the larger r4's. rather than the standard 54" fel bucket. If you get the r1ag tires or the turf tires (or order with the b3200 r4's) the 54" bucket will cover the rear tire tracks. The b3300 is cheaper mostly due to no mid pto.

    The major items for a mid pto are mmm or front snowblower, but there are other items like a generator and someone on here listed some other mid pto items available I never even thought about. It sounds like your decision comes down to how you want to mow and tire choice. Or check out the L's like others said. Minor point, but I do like the flat deck on the B's which the base L's don't have. Anyway, keep us posted on your decisions. Enjoy!
