    Default My first, Deere 4310 new to me, new member

    Hello. I'm new to the forum but I have been visiting this site for well over three years as I searched off and on for a tractor. The information on TBN has been a great aid in the decision making process, so my first act as a member will be to thank this community for all of the information sharing.

    Well, this past weekend I took the plunge and bought my first tractor.

    I would like some reassurance (or maybe grief) on the pricing of the deal.

    2002 John Deere 4310 with 385 hours
    430 FEL
    E-Hydro HST
    MFWD
    Load Match
    Motion Match
    Cruise
    Regular 3pt arms (not the extendable kind)
    Bucket level indicator
    R4 tires
    MID PTO

    Also in this package is:
    Land Pride FDR2572 finish mower in moderate condition.
    5ft landscaping rake.
    Land pride Rototiller RTA 1558 with some moderate rusting.
    Total $14,300

    Some things that were right/wrong:
    Tractor was stored indoors for the past 4 years used occasionally for snow removal. When first viewed it needed a jump but started right up. No smoke, sounds fine. Everything works on the tractor, except I can't seem to get the mid pto engaged (yes I read the manual). The front grill retaining brackets are broken off (plastic) so the grill is only held up by the FEL grill protector. One of the work lights has a cracked cover. Other than that the body panels, seat, other cosmetics are in great shape.

    I know you all like pics so I'll have them soon in another thread, since I have some questions on a few of the quirks.

    Congrats on the tractor. If you are happy with it that is all that counts. Deal sounds square to me. Only thing i suggest is you change oil and filter. That way you know you started out with fresh oil. And run some sea foam through the fuel. Enjoy your new tractor.

    Guess we think alike, I had already planned on picking up a couple cans of seafoam today and doing their diesel hot soak procedure with the fuel bowl. I'll put the rest in the tank. Nice to know it's something someone else would consider doing too, thanks.

    Welcome to TBN and congrats on your new tractor!!
    The 4310 was one of Deere's best (IMHO) and I'm sure you'll get years of use out of it.
