    Default Thoughts on possible John Deere 4320 purchase

    Good Morning,
    I currently run a JD 5105 2 wheel drive and am looking to upgrade. I have looked at 3320's, 4105's new and am seriously looking at a 4320 used 2006 with 1300 hours. It has a loader and eHydro. I Have about 10 acres that I brush hog, move about 25 round bales a year (800 lbs) and clean out a couple of horse barns and a 4 animal cattle barn.
    Locally (all 4wd)
    Used 3320's are in the 15K price range
    No used 4x20's
    New 4105 with bale spear and 300cx loader is 24k
    Used 4320 with 400x loader is 17k

    Leaning to the 4320 (and for that price, the 3320 is out of the picture - was worried that it wasnt enough tractor anyways)
    It looks like a great buy, but am I missing something?
    I also need to have a rear SCV added. Looks like $260 from dealer - can I install that or should I have dealer install - dealer selling the 4230 cannot install as they are not JD dealer.

    thanks

    I would get the serial number and have a Green dealer check on repairs that have been made to the 4320 unit. Most people are color set when it comes to tractors. What made the previous owner change colors? Did he get that good of a deal? Or did he view the 4320 as very problematic, had poor dealer support or decided all tractors that color had problems?

    Price on 4320 too good to be true with loader. look at tractor house and machine finder. Something does not look right. I paid low 20s for my used 4120 with loader 600 hrs and PST not ehydro.
    Way more tractor than the 3320 or the 4105. if you want economy get the 4005. Best fit is the 4020 series for your work or a used rental return 5045E.
