Time will tell if I made the right decision but for now I'm stoked.
    Deere has moved the e series even closer to the M with regards to the available options. Cabs and reverser transmissions from 55 to 101hp. Molded fenders and air seats! I'm really hard-pressed to recommend the M series tractor over a cabbed or nicely, decked out e series tractor!

    Lot's of great tractor features at a very competitive Hp/$$ figure!!

    Lookin' forward to hearing about how your tractor works for you.

    Nice tractor and a good price too. I see the same discounts when shopping in my locale, 18-20% is good. Like mjncad said, glad to see someone buying here.

    Congratulations awesome tractor. I wish the new model had been on the market when i bought my tractor in December of 2011 I wanted a 5m with power shuttle etc but could not justify $15k over the orange models.

    Be very careful when hooking up to any CAT I ground engaging implements like your old plow, back blades, box scrappers etc. If they start to pull hard you can easily them into scrap metal with that heavy and powerful of a tractor especially in 4wd.

    xring100, thanks for the warning! I only use the 2 bottom dearborn plow for the wife's garden when she's ready for me to turn it over, and the box blade I have is cat 1 from TSC but that is more for driveway leveling every once in awhile. My rear blade is a 9' Cat 2 blade. Those are the only 3pt ground engaging items I have right now, I just figured it was easy to have the bushings on hand if and when I might need them.

    The redesigned cab on the 5093e was a big seller for me, had it been the old configuration I'm not sure which direction I would have gone!

    You got a great deal, have you priced the used ones on the net? You wont get 0% on a used one either.

    That is a sweet tractor. I ordered a 5085 m a few weeks ago sounds like similar machines, but mine is open station 2WD. Hope you get it soon and enjoy it.
