Trouble free who knows, I've worn out a lot of stuff abusing the BX. So far in 450 hours my LS as only had nuts/bolts come loose. I do the maintenance but got lazy/busy a few time with the BX, trying to be better on the LS. Biggest thing I can tell those turbo/dpf motor like to run higher than older diesel. I now run it right at 2000 rpm for most things. The HST and Hydraulic work better at those speeds (or higher) than lower.That's the reliability and longevity I'm expecting with regular maintenance (fluid changes, lube, filters). Especially if I buy new I expect zero issues for 10 years. Am I being realistic? (I hope so, but asking).
As for finding a 240 used, I bought the XG3135H used because I could not find a 40 used within 150 miles and this one had the wish list Backhoe. Gave 24.5 to a JD dealer with 240 hours. Paint still like new on loader and backhoe buckets, but no more since I've been working it. Removed a ton of brush and trees from the pond edges, expanded cattle pond, dug out and spread 10+ dump truck loads of creek gravel and another truck load of limestone. Moved 40 round bales a couple times and hauled them to the cattle.
