    Default 5055E Pricing?

    I went to the local dealer in western Arkansas today and asked about the pricing on a 5055E with 4WD and a loader. Since he didn't have one in stock he tried convincing me I needed a 65 HP (which he did have in stock). I was told the 5055E is not in production and I couldn't get one until the factory was all done making new cabs??? The price quoted for the 5065E 4WD with loader was $31,300. When I tried to negotiate a price I was told that this was the price.

    I have bought tractors before but not a JD. Is this non-negotiation a common practice at JD dealers? Is $31,300 a good price for the 5065E? What would a 5055E cost?

    I don't know about price but unless he is giving you his lowest price already then there is always room for negotiations.
    My dealer gave me a set price as well and wouldn't budge but I asked why he wouldn't negotiate he showed me what he paid for the tractor and what the listed price was, turned out he made only $1000 selling me it at that price. Cause I asked the reason he was more than happy to show me the numbers in detail, his theory is give the customer a good experience and value and they will come back and he has stuck with that saying from day one.

    It is not common. Go to deere.com and build the tractor and find the list price. Then if you can buy it for 15% off plus tax you should be okay.
