Backhoe operators in here?
You just made a thread bragging that your dad just spent $310,000 on a tractor, then you say screw the warranty because "You guys dont care, because you got the money to fix it". Sounds like you already made up your mind lol. Why even ask?
I believe the 310k is the model. Like a Dozer can be a D5.
OP, I work construction as well and, although the 4 lever is much nicer, I wouldn't screw with it until after the warranty is up.
Now, that being said, if you can fix it if it needs fixing, and the amount of extra time and effort will effect your productivity of getting the job done, then screw the warranty and do it.
This is a business and time is money. If it cost more in time and productivity, then the 4 lever is worth it. If the difference is nominal, then just make due with the 3.
Just a question: why didn't you get a Bobcat? They have some freaking sweet ones now that have laser levels that practically do it all for you and you have a crap load of options with the accessories. Front end loaded, jack hammer, back hoe, etc.
