I responded to a CL ad and bought a 3310 with a cast iron Briggs engine. It has vari drive which is almost shot and the hydrolift. It has the tiny head lights. It came with a deck, plow and chains. The battery is dead but the engine runs when jumped.

This was an opportunity that bumped another that I was considering. I will change the fluids and battery. Then I will get into the varidrive. It will likely go to a friend that needs the hydrolic lift. Good Luck, Rick

Looks pretty darn good! The electric lift and headlights were optional on the Landlords. It was decked out back in the day and doesnt look to ever have been abused. I hear those snowblower tires in the front help quite a bit in slick stuff.

Like the headlights. The fact that it runs is a plus.

Wow, there seems to be a lot of those 3300 series tractors turning up lately. That is a clean one.

I found a new varidrive belt for under $100. That varidrive needs a bunch of work. I didn't even try the lift. Heavy rain and high winds today, relaxed. Good Luck, Rick

I had to pull the engine out to get the mouse nest out. It runs fine but the varidrive is stuck. I've got it parialy apart and was going to use the parts stripped from a 3012. The inner bushing is a little different and won't fit. I'll play with it some more tonight. Anybody have experience with this? Good Luck, Rick
