    Default Traded off the 790

    My dealer had been keeping an eye out for a 3320 with the reverser transmission (for me).
    He gave me a call a couple days ago about a really clean 4400 with sync-reverser, so I checked it out. Definitely a clean and strong machine.
    800 hours on the meter and the price was quite good.
    I got 10500 for my 790, 419 loader and a 60" Befco RFM (I'd paid $12500 for the tractor/loader almost 6 years ago). The 4400 went for just under $13K, which included a fairly new 84" Befco mower (BIG freakin' mower!!!) and a full service.
    So, now I'm the happy owner of a 4400 tractor.
    The down side is it won't be delivered until Thursday, 20 May and I'll be in Milwaukee from the 19th until the 21st (evening).

    As far as why...the 790 is a great tractor and has all the power I need. But I really like the reverser transmission (those blizzards last winter really pushed me to the reverser...although I'd considered buying a 3320 with reverser a couple years ago.

    BTW, that's a 61" bucket on the 4400. For a 4400, that's small (I think most are 73"). But my toothbar off the 790 will fit mighty fine.

    Looks great. Is the mower really that big or is the track of the 4400 that narrow? Can you reverse the wheels to get a wider track?

    Thats one **** of an upgrade for 2500. Did you use a gun ? I would have called a roll back tow truck to make sure he didn't back out. Make sure you throw the salesperson a bone.

    Congradulations! Great price on a very nice upgrade.
    Are you sure that's a 72" mower? It sure looks like an 84".
