    Default SX3100 vs Ex3200

    I'm upgrading my sc2400 to either a sx3100 or ex3200. I'm really leaning to the sx3100 because of the ease to add the mower deck and I like the forward snowblower. I'm curious if anybody has had any negative issues with the sx3100.

    It's very difficult to find much info on these tractors. I've done alot of research and was in the same place you were a few weeks ago. Either tractor is very nice. The SX is the newer design with a mid mount PTO standard. For me, the SX frame was too small and reminded me of a lawn mower. The EX3200 is an older design with a 3 speed tranny. I personally like the cockpit of the EX better...some may find it cramped. I just bought an EX32 and its getting delivered this SUnday.

    They are both very good tractors. If you are interested, I know where there's a new SX with loader for 13.6. PM me if you want the info.

    JFCCAC did you just call my tractor a lawn mower.i guess you did. Well gj1999 i have just purcjased a new SX3100 a month ago. I have not used it much yet so i can't comment to much on it. I am very happy with my purchase. I did get mine with a loader and MMM. A great set up for taking the MMM off. My reason for going with the sx3100 was the fact its alittle smaller versus the ex3200 and alittle lighter. One thing i am worried about that i will find out in the spring is if it is to heavy for mowing the lawn. I have tried it alittle this fall and it seemed ok weight wise. Just hope i don't tear up the lawn with it, time will tell. So just keep that in mind if your thinking of using it to cut your lawn. i figured its in the area of 2500lbs with loader and mmm. Good luck with your search. I don't think you can go wrong with any choice you make. And by the way i believe the sx3100 has more break out force than the ex3200 just i side note for those calling my tractor a lawn mower.. LOL have fun shopping.

    Builder,

    I guess I did! It does have a MMM...so it is a lawn mower..is it not?

    I looked at the SX and the EX. Its all in your preference. I like the EX better as it looks beefier and is a bigger overall frame. It's (the EX) also an older design as compared to the SX.

    Builder...I'm not sure what specs you are looking at but the brochure I have in front of me shows breakout for the SX at 2090 and the EX at 2500 (at the pins).

    Either tractor is great...

    I had an EX2900, basically the same as an EX3200. I really liked it, but have no experience with the SX models.

    jfccac, your right the EX has more break out force, the SX has more lift capacity. i would say pretty impressive for my "lawm mower" to have more lift capacity over the EX. I don't get that one with the EX being a heavier unit. You are right both units would be great. I did forget to mention that when you remove the mower deck your ground clearence is cut down to about 6-7" due to the rear mounts for the deck. They could be removed if needed but not that quick.Hail to the machine that can lift more !!!!

    My main uses are mowing, landscaping, and orchard cleanup. I talked to the dealer and am waiting to see what he can give me for my sc2400, MMM, loaded and SB45. I decided to get the sx3100, it fits my needs more and is almost identical to the Jd2720, so parts aren't an issue. I wouldn't mind a JD, but the price is too steep. I looked at the specs and its a trade off and you can put a MMM on the ex3200, I saw a 60" deck on one in Frederick, MD. I'm sure if you call the dealer, they will sell you one.

    I love my SX3100, the fel, and mmm are easy on, easy off. I leave the fel off when I mow, I haven't had any problems with turf damage.

    JFCCAC you obviously limited knowledge of tractor ownership if you are referring to the SX as a "lawn mower" . I own both the EX 3200 and the SX 3100 and both are excellent machines. This is only this country girl's opinion but I think my SX is more versatile.

    pretty interesting first post....tractor chic. You may want to read what you typed before formally posting...as while I may have limited tractor knowledge, it appears your grasp of the English language leaves a bit to be desired

    so..do explain what 'versatile' means in your world.

    I'm not dissing either machine...as a matter of fact, my brother in law bought an SX with a FEL and a MMM...based on a push (recommendation) from me.

    I like the EX better...for what I want to do with it. Many like the SX for their intended needs. Either one is great....as long as it's black and yellow.
