    It is strange how little used equipment is available in NM. Guess everyone is happy with what they have. It'll be interesting to see what the dealers have on their lot.

    You may want to consider buying your tractor in Ca. before you move and having it shipped...just a thought ..if you can save enough it may be worthwhile.

    I've actually considered that. I have a 24' flatbed gooseneck that I tow with my RAM 3500 Cumins. The problem is CA has the highest sales tax in the nation (9.5% where I live). I may just check out what is up in OR (no sales tax).

    Ron,

    My kubota dealer says the 3% loss in power only starts above
    5,000 ft., so your only losing 15%, not 24% for non-turbo

    Not true. Refer to the following two links:

    Elevation 8200,
    Which tractor do you have? And how is it working out for you? Since we are at about the same elevation, I assume you are using yours for similar things that I would be, except for maybe the backhoe work.

    The John Deere 4320 offers a turbo, the model 485 backhoe is an excellent backhoe, can be installed and removed from the operators seat extremely quickly, and comes standard with a boom float control, making trenching and site excavation easier. New or used you can't go wrong with this product, John Deere service and resale value, and the products outstanding performance for task at hand. I'm not a John Deere dealer, I've been in the industry for many years and have held the position of Product Marketing manager (compact tractors) and managed kubota, John Deere, and Cub Cadet dealerships, my job was to research and critique the industry currently looking for work and staying active by helping the folks I always enjoyed helping, the consumers.
