Default B3300

I am in the process of buying a B3300 but one of the previous posts mentioned the PTO vibration. I am concerned about that as we have to brush hog quite a few acres. Is this an issue that I have to be concerned about? If so, then I may have to rethink the B3300. I read the L2800 is an alternative. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you

BobA, will you ever need to use a mid-pto? I noticed the B3300 dose not come with one.
Cant tell you much about the PTO vibration as I haven't had the opportunity to use mine yet on my B32000.

I am in the process of buying a new tractor also.
I currently own a B7800 awesome tractor very happy with the size and
horsepower but decided to get a new one. I have had my mind set on the
b3300su then checked out the L3400 my dealer has two left. He wants $18,000 for the L3400... $18,300 for a L3700su...and $16,750 for a 3300su.
I havent heard anything negative about the 3300 but I think for the extra money I am going with the L3700su only 6" longer and about the same width.
If anybody has a comments or advise I would love to hear it.
Thanks

Thanks for the input. I have been between the B3300 and the L2800. I am sharing with my son-in-law and he liked the B3300 a little better. The pricing I received was $17,995 with the FEL and Howse 5' Brush hog. The L2800 was $600 less but we opted for the B3300. Good Luck on your purchases.
Forgot to mention that we did consider the mid PTO issue but decided on a pull behind finish mower. It was an inital concern but the sales rep gave us a solution.

Glad to hear it. My sales guy didn't even mention it to me at first until I mentioned the MMM. Just didn't want you to get surprised once you got it home and were looking to hook up the mid-mower or front blower.
Congrats on the new tractor! I am sure you will love it. Keep us posted about the vibration.
