So today My buddy wanted to drag a boat. Its a 16foot boat 2 1/2 feet deep. It was 3/4 way full of water and a few old transmisions from a chevy truck. I estimate 2800 - 3200 pounds. Should my JD 235 had any troble getting this moved? It sqeeled a bit until it untracked, but once the hitch was out of the mud it moved easy. How much is too much?

Unless something broke in the trans, then it won't hurt the hydro. When overloaded the extra pressure simply bypasses and doesn't hurt the hydro.
But in the "what did you do with your tractor today" thread, you started out using a JD265, then it turned into a JD365????? Just how many beers did you drink?:bigrofl::bigrofl:

Lol Yeah, typically you are more likely to break the frame or body part than you are the hydro.

Wow! That is definitely a positive on the JD hydro...not so much on the Chevy Trannies though.
