    Default Turning radius: 3000 series vs. 4000 series

    Does anyone have the stats on turning radius for these two series?
    I am of the opinion that the clearance and additional ability of a 4000 series would far outweigh any shortcoming of the turning radius.

    I really depends what you want it for. A 3000 has a nice turning radius, but if it can't lift what you want or doesn't have the HP you want, what good is is. If you really need a high clearance and a 4000 series is high enough but the 3000 isn't, then you need a 4000 series, but that's just me.
    I don't think it pays to spend $8000 more for a tractor if you don't need the extra HP or clearance or capabilities.

    I would think a Google search would find out the stats.

    I've got a 4120 and you can turn it around and the inside rear dang near stays in its track. You need to drive one and see.

    The 3720 is 9.2 feet. Still looking for the turning radius on a 4000 series.

    You didn't go look did you? I did it for you 3720 w/o brakes is 9.2, 4720 w/o brakes is 9.8. 4720 w/brakes is 9.2
