    Perhaps we should see about a snoway blade for our new powerplant.

    I cant wait to move snow with this bad boy, engage the auto throttle and let her rip. Snow would also help with the payment!

    I've seen and said it on lawnsite, but again, awsome machine. I'm very envious of it.

    Nice Unit

    You have a very nice rig there! You might want to think about some tires other than turf tires for winter, I have them on my 4600 JD and they spin on anything.

    Lawn King, what are you planning on doing with the machine? Do you do hardscape installs? New lawns?

    I'm just wondering because I've been tossing around the idea of a bigger tractor (kubota L5740) or a smaller skid steer (JD 315 or NH L160) for quite sometime now. It was going to happen soon, but I bought a new truck. So it will be delayed a little more. My 2210 does great for small jobs that I don't want to tear up the lawn with the weight of a larger machine on, but just doesn't have it for doing lawn reno's, or very much digging, and stuff like that. Not to mention that the lift height is just no good. It dumps into a pick-up fine. But barley makes it into the dump body. I do really like operating a tractor with the nice grand L cab much more than a noisy skid steer. The visibility is great, the noise is pretty quiet, those cabs are as nice as a new truck interior, and I'm already very used to operating a tractor, and have only operated a skid once. I test drove one at MB tractor one time.

    My primary business is lawn care. The tractors primary function is fertilizing, spraying and aerating. I do high end landscape construction, planting,hydroseeding,hardscaping and granite. I dont advertise landscape construction as i get just enough of it from my existing lawn clients. The grand l 40 series are capable of anything you want to do. The 724 loader is fast ,strong and lifts high enough to load any 6 wheeler & most 10 wheelers. The pto will power anything from a power rake to a rototiller, snowblower to a rotary cutter and anything in between. The cab is so quiet its amazing! Be advised the 40 series are not small machines. There are eight models in the lineup, my 3540 is the second model up in the run and she weighs very close to 5000 lbs with the fel on. You dont want to tow this rig around with a half ton pickup.

    In a way I like the size of it, in another I don't. If I were to end up with one of those, I think I would enjoy plowing snow with it much more, but when it comes time to get in real tight working on someones property during the summer, I think I would like a skid steer more. Of course I would still have the small 2210 tractor.

    The dealer told me that all the models are physically the same size, just different loaders, weight, HP, and capabilities. Is this true?

    Im not sure if thats true or not, it does look like all models are very close in size and all the factory cabs are identical. Weight is a big issue with us as i work on pristine turf, i need big power with a light foot print. I was about to pull the trigger on the 3240 until i had a close look at the specs, the 3240 and the 3540 are the same weight so i took the extra horses!

    I know this is the Snoway forum, but look into the Horst 3000 series wing blade for that machine, you'll love it.

    It looks like she will just do loader work as far as snow goes, loading trucks and site relocation. I just dont see where money is going to come from for a pusher or blade. We will be lucky to stay in business if this diesel fuel ( SICK GREED) situation continues. Imagine $ 57.00 to fuel a tractor. Im looking at $ 375.00 in diesel to fill my dumptruck,pickup and kubota & now im hearing $ 7.00 per gallon by summers end! We cant endure this burden much longer!
