This could be a dumb question but does the additional weight of the 3620 compared to 3515 cause the engine to noticeably labor more when you have the FEL and a rear attachment on?
If you're just driving around on ground that's not really steep it won't make a difference. If you're pulling something, traction is the limiter and the heavier machine will do better. The only place where the lighter machine would do better is going up steep hills. But since the larger machine is better for everything else, I think it's better to just be resigned to going a little slower up those hills. Maybe someone with mud experience can answer for those conditions- we don't get much mud here.
