... yea, somthing does not add up. How could you possibly have two products sold within miles of each other at $16,000 appart???
Did the OP ever make a decision???
Not to add more fuel to the fire, and I dont know what feature differences there are, but......where does the M5040 bota fall price wise???
I probabaly won't finalize my decision for a couple more weeks. I need to finalize all my tax stuff and see how my day job goes this month which is dependant on a certain playoff season getting underway.
Not really looking at the M series since there is no cab/hst combo there.
It makes no sense to me either, but I have real quotes that tell the story. That is what drove me to start this thread in the 1st place. Though I see differences between the products, nothing is compelling me to spend that much more from one tractor to another.Quote:

That said - lack of dealer network, parts availability and the big one - RESELL VALUE has to be factored into all tractor purchases. Kubota and Deere to name two have great resale value. Mahindra, TYM (plus others) aren't worth squat used.
As far as resale, I guess you missed where a guy just sold his Kioti that was 8 years old I believe and had 100's of hours on it and sold it for about $1500 less than what he had paid for it. And yet last year there were a couple of guys that sold or traded in their relatively new Kubotas and lost thousands. In fact I believe their words were, "so much for the good resale value"
Nothing against any of the tractors, only repeating what I have heard in person and or read here on TBN.
I was only repeating what the TYM dealer told me regarding the 10 series.Quote:

As far as not mentioning Kioti, you did not, but you did mention (plus others) And as far as resale, it definitely has a lot to do with the region that a person is in as to what they can get for their used tractor. ;)
