My old Bobcat 500 series skid steer that helped me to move around dirt, dig holes and clean my driveway in the winter had a fatal engine failure. I decided to replace it, and my not good for anything Poulan Weedeater garden tractor, and my good Earthquake walk behind rear tine rotor tiller with one good machine.
I checked around, looked at Bobcat compact tractors, looked at New Holland machines and decided to buy a JD 2320. The reason for this decisions was the fact that my friend has a 2520 for four years now (for his 18 acres) and works it very hard without any trouble. The fact that JD had a promotion running for interest free financing for 60 months as well as a rebate of $500 for any two implements helped to make up my mind.
I am now approaching the 50 hour service, and looking back, the machine did everything I hoped it would do, plus a little more. I do not reject my purchasing decision and actually like cleaning the driveway with it!
