On March 8th, my dealer has his yearly John Deere Day. I will gather all the info I can on new models and all the goings on. I will also take plenty of pics of anything interesting.
Our local dealer just had John Deere Day. It was nice. Good food, door prizes and lots of stuff to look at. They had about one of every model of tractor from all the X-series mowers, 1-series, 2-series, 3-series up to huge 7000 series. The only 2013 model appeared to be a 1025R.
Any new info on the replacement for the 2x20 tractors? I'm looking at a 2520, but would like to have the AutoConnect MMM, which the 2x20 does not currently offer. But, if the only change on the 2x20 is the Tier IV engines, then I don't want to wait just to have the higher engine and fuel cost.
Received a Quote for a 2013 2032r. Base 16,500 and the FEL is 3,200 on top of that. I think it has 32HP and 24HP at the PTO. I think they are calling it a mid year 2013 model.
That's not much different than the 2720 was selling for. What model loader did they quote?
I just spoke with my dealer, and for a 2032R, the cost would be $2500-$3000 more than the 2720 they have on the lot. He doesn't have pricing on decks yet, but he estimated the cost between the 1 and 3 series decks. Most of the cost is due to no rebates available on the new 2032R, and not the emissions equipment. Still trying to find out if there are any other major changes to the tractors, but looks like I will proceed with the 2720 purchase.
Sorry for the delay in response. I missed the posts. I really have not gotten much info on the 2032r other then the quote he sent. No real specs. (I am very novice to all this). Loader was H130 NSL Loader. The 62D deck was quoted for 3,750.50 and had an independent lift kit. Same deck as the 3720 and same lift kit as well.
Does the 2720 have the same HP? I really wanted a 2520 but those are few and far between.
