/ MT240E – 40HP #1
Thanks for input. I did stopped a dealer that I like. Looked at some kioti & Branson. Next one on my list will be LS. I'll be on that side of town tomorrowIt's a good tractor and should be more than enough tractor for your 3 acres.
I see you soliciting inputs on TYM, LS, and Branson and I would say that the dealership is a huge factor. Service and parts after the sale are very, very important.
Also as you shop around know that probably less than 1% of tractor owners are actually on a forum so you are not getting that big of a picture of a brand quality. The same is true for issues or problems with a given brand on a forum as it is a very small sample of overall sales.
I also see you bit into Jeff's idea that tractor weight is the most important. I will tell you it is important but not number one in most cases. What you are going to do with the tractor will dictate what you need. In other words don't buy a LS MT7 when you really need an MT125.
Test drive tractors and talk to your dealer. A salesman worth their salt should get you the tractor you need.
