Just purchased a Deere 3032e. Not very fancy but then again neither am I. Have not run it much but what little I have it has done all that I've asked.
I have a 305 bucket, quick disconnect is great. I also have a Frontier finish mower (package deal) and it seems to be fine so far.
I had a Ford 9n years ago so I am not a tractor novice.
My dealer experience could have been better. But when they have a product that sells itself and me being just a residential consumer they don't have much incentive to be, uh, accommodating.
