    I'm a new member and have a Ford 801 tractor. I've been looking at new tractors from all of the manufacturers and I'm close to a final decision. I narrowed the search to 3 models, the JD 2320, 2520 and 2720. I like the additional hydraulics power of the 2520 and 2720 so I've eliminated the 2320.

    The 2720 seeded stronger and smoother than 2520 but don't know if its worth the $2,000 difference in price. I plan on starting with the 200 cx loader and ballast box.

    Any
    Feedback would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I don't have any experience with those tractors but others will have input on them.

    . Welcome to the forum. I know there are a whole bunch of 2520 and 2720 owners on here. Sure they will be posting shortly.

    What do you plan to use it for immediately and in the future?

    I plan on using it to grade my driveway, brushog a hill (about 1 1/2 ac) and eventually remove snow from a very long driveway. The driveway is 1/2 flat then it is uphill ending in a big uphill circle.
    I'm also thinking of using it to mow about an acre of lawn.
    Thanks for the welcome.
