(That's a really good looking machine. Lots of pics, appears to be in GREAT shape)

Wisconsin (HST) same machine OP was looking but with a FEL and slightly more $ than the OP's B3200....
https://www.tractorhouse.com/listing...8-kubota-b3200

Wisconsin (HST Case IH)
https://rockford.craigslist.org/grd/...866869040.html

Indiana (HST)
https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/...865369268.html

Indiana (Shuttle Shift Kioti)
https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/...864831572.html

Indiana (HST with FEL and MMM)
https://southbend.craigslist.org/grd...862319890.html

These next 3 are a little under 25hp but the prices reflect it...

Wisconsin (HST JD)
https://madison.craigslist.org/grd/d...866105892.html
Might be one of the better deals on Craigslist right now.

Wisonsin (HST, with FEL and MMM)
https://madison.craigslist.org/grd/d...854298690.html

Indiana (HST with FEL and MMM)
https://muncie.craigslist.org/grd/d/...865814894.html


There's more, just keep looking
I'll give you credit for the B3200 with 467 hours and FEL in WI (not really my area of the MW) but not the others for various reasons.

I'm not that good at admitting things either. Hard to argue that they aren't decent machines, at decent prices.

Hate to burst your bubble, but those aren’t exactly comparable deals. Sure they are the same model, with mower and loader, but the have between 1-2,000 more hours on them. That’s a lot of difference in value right there no matter how you look at it. All you basically end up with is a free loader on a machine that has way more wear on it than the 400 hour machine that the OP is looking at. That means the mower decks on them could be well worn and so on. You can search all day long on the interweb and find smoking prices, but that doesn’t automatically make them better deals in the long run. OP, for a B3200 with 400 hours and a mower deck, that is a good price for my area.

I admit to misreading the OPs post. I thought he was looking for a tractor with FEL rather than MMM, and assumed that he wanted at least 25 PTO HP since he was asking about a B3200.

No bubbles to burst. Wasn't trying to compare machines to the B3200, just comparing prices, attachments and horsepower, for the dollar being spent. You can get more than just a MMM, for 12,500. To which I provided some examples. I also provided caveats on how to get more for your money... "It might not be 32hp, it might not be a Kubota, it might not be a 2010, it might have more than 400hrs". Logically, those are all easy hurdles to jump, at least in my eyes. Say you don't need a FEL, no problem. But why spend 12,5 on a 32hp machine when I can get a 30hp machine with the same feature (MMM), and basically the same hours, for $3550 less and only lose out on 2hp? That's a huge savings.

BAP, I re-edited my posts showing the hours of all machines I linked to. Maybe go back and have a look?
I think the majority of the machines I posted are all within a reasonably low hour range, especially when you take into consideration the price. On top of that, who's to say that 400hr B3200 isn't worn out from neglect? You or I can't say for certain. It's the used market, it's all a gamble. So why over pay?

I'm just trying to offer a different perspective.

Just as an indicator of possible hours from a tractor.

That's a lot of hours per year - more than hobby farm use!
