Hello rvtech,
Congratulations on the purchase. Keep us posted on your satisfaction. I'm particularly interested in the performance of the BH6000. I think I'm interested in the 2320, which appears to be just a higher profile 2305, but I'm still gathering as much info/opinion as is available. Don't mean to pry, but if you're willing to say, what did you pay for the BH?

I think I did ok on the deal.

$17250 + tax

I wanted cruise control too but it's not yet available

I had a price of $13200 before the BH. So the hoe price is $4050

I think that's a good deal.

My only concern is not seeing this tractor with the BH on it. I tried a Kubota BX2230 with the BH6000, but my Deere dealer only has the BH at a store in Michigan so I didn't see the complete rig before purchasing. I think the only difference will be the BH seat and color.
They are shipping the BH wednesday. I hope to have the rig by week end.

Very Cool. Hope you enjoy the 2305. I purchased one on 10/6/05 and have to wait for delivery. Something about FEL's not in till the 15th. I don't think I got the best deal, but it will serve my needs. I paid $13,600 for 2305, 200CX Loader and 48" box blade. Right now, I don't know when it will be delivered, but I guess that is the Phoenix AZ market. I noticed the John Deere website shows a 53" bucket with the Loader, my quote shows 49" bucket. Which is the correct bucket? Am I having my chain yanked?

I can't wait to start reading some feedback on the new models. Not that I will need a new tractor for a few years, but it pays to stay "tuned in." /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The different bucket sizes are options. IMHO the 53 is a good size for the tractor, but can get you to be needing ballast really quick. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
