    Default My new 5083E arrived at the dealers lot

    Hi All,
    I have been lurking on here for some time. You guys are a great source of info. I have test driven many tractors through your words.
    I have a 300 acre tree farm, with about 30 acres of hay field. My tractor will be used for road maintenance, food plots, mowing, spraying, etc. I plan on taking over haying in the next couple years (hay fields are leased).
    I ordered the tractor several weeks ago. It showed two weeks later on 3/30. I am still waiting for the loader. It should show up this week.
    I looked at several tractors, including the m series, and the kubota line.
    I finally decided on Deere and spec'd the tractor out as follows:
    JD 5083E Limited open station
    H260 front loader, hd bucket with global attach.
    Power Reverser trans, with the modulator
    12.4/24 front tires, 18.4/30 rears, loaded.
    I didn't get any "extra" hydraulics. I tried to keep my cost to a min. I stewed over this one the longest.
    That's pretty much it. I will post some more pics once they get the loader installed.

    Thanks again for the great stories/reviews.
    Steve

    Very nice looking tractor are you going to have them widen your rear tires, how about bucket hooks?

    I've already purchased bucket hooks, I will weld those on myself. I'm going to leave the tires as is for now. I don't have alot of side hilly stuff to worry about. I have talked with the dealer about it though.

    The dealer is going to get sick of me, shortly. I have probably stopped by 1/2 a dozen times. This is a good test of patience, the ground is still so wet around here I couldn't do too much with it anyways.
