Just to give this a little bump up and somewhat of an update...
The property I have been looking at was originally 5 acres but the current owners split the property and it is now down to 3 acres but for the same price, so I have to talk with a realitor I know and see what the deal with that is. Otherwise, I'll have to look at some other property options.
Regarding the tractor, it looks like I'll end up with a new 2014 as the 2013s are nearly done. I think I've talked myself up to a 3039R cab tractor (which is the 2014 version of the 3520). I've heard various reports of the 3320 not having quite enough power to run the AC on the cab and decent sized PTO implements at the same time. So I'll have to talk with my dealer about that here in the next couple weeks and get a price on that. If I wasn't so set on running the tractor in the winter, I'd gladly purchase and open station model, but I know for a fact I want the cab. Plus, when I look at resale value, the 3520 cab will have quite a bit more resale value down the road.
