I have had an L2800 for several years now, currently has 600 hours on it without a lick of trouble. I rarely see any posts related to the L2800. Is it because it is a rare tractor, or is it that reliable?

Other than engine size it is the same as L3400,L3700SU and current L3301,L3901. So yes they are great.

I have assumed during the 10 years as a member here...that the lack of posts regarding problems for the L2800 means I made a good decision...and is a good thing.

I have learned ALOT on this site...all very much appreciated. I love mine, beat the hell out of it...over service it...and love having it. The L2800 was recommended to me by the dealer I bought it as a harvest return from...he was right. It has never been back to him...

Only thing I've ever read about them, was the jerky 3pt hitch.
L2800 was on the top of my list before I bought my 28hp JD. I just couldn't find an L2800 in my price range.

Sold about a thousand of them.

Worked on maybe 20, and a majority were normal servicing, or PM. Some insurance jobs (flood, tornado).

GREAT tractors!

My boss bought one that a lady couldn't pay for any longer; had 19 hours on it when he bought it-they owed $9400 and that's all she would take for it. He tried to give her $15k, she wouldn't take any more than payoff. Boss kept it for a while and it sat mostly...after, gosh, 9 years, he accumulated another 41 hours on it at which time he decided to sell it. He offered it to me for $10k cash, so he could make a little bit on it as well as pay for the 50 hour service (which I did). I shoulda bought it instead of this Massey I have (1145), but a $600 working Massey is better than a payment.
