    I'm sure the first time I get stuck in the mud while Bush Hogging in the woods and make the long trek back to the shed to get the other tractor, I wish I had gotten the 4wd. However, the price difference to me is significant. The dealer quoted me the following "Cash" prices:
    2wd, plane Jane =$10,895
    4wd, with front end loader= $14,795
    and they didn't have an exact price on 4wd with out the front end loader but thought it would be around $13,000-$13,500
    And Here is a scan of the front page of the one-sheet the dealer gave me, showing a very pretty 2wd G3038

    I guess her name is Phyllis, and yep over at Stringfellow's. And I agree that they are really nice guys, my family has been dealing with them for years. I won't be back that way for a while, but I'll mention it next time I'm in there.

    Yes, they've been in business right at 50 years. It's just a good 'ol country business. When I bought my LS, I originally looked at the tractors at a dealer in Mobile (who has since gone out of business), and was ready to buy when a friend suggested I go to Stringfellow's. Phyllis' first quote was about $ 1500 less than the dealer in Mobile. I bought it right then and there. Also,the Howse HD 6' box blade, that I bought from them, was a fair amount less than the standard duty at TSC.
    I bent my stabilizer bars a couple of weeks ago. They are normally sold as an entire unit, even thought I only needed one part. Phyllis would have parted out just that piece for me, but realized she didn't have the piece I needed in stock. She sent one of the guys out, to take one off of a tractor!

    I highly recommend them!

    I really like my G3038 Hydrostatic.. Does the job. 6' shredder, box blade and FEL handles just about everything around the place here.. Had a few minor issues, but nothing so major I wouldn't buy it again..
