    2009 John Deere 3520 Deluxe Cab

    Default John Deere 3520 with Cab on Order

    I am new to TBN. This is an excellent forum for tractor lovers. I ordered a new JD 3520 (R4's) with deluxe cab and 300cx FEL on 9/25/09. It should arrive 11/12/09. The tractor and FEL costs $28,000. I currently own a JD 4310, R4's, PR transmission, and a 430 FEL. It has been a very good tractor but I wanted to upgrade to a cab. The summers here in SE Georgia get pretty darn hot. My dealer allowed me as much on a trade in as I was asking for a sale price. Needless to say, I am anxious to receive my new tractor. My order included the radio mount and speaker kit. My plans are to install a Sony MEX-5100 Bluetooth stereo. This is a single DIN unit. Can I expect installation problems? Is the top of the cab hard to remove for the radio installation? If anyone has experience with this, I would appreciate some info and pics if possible.

    Congrats!

    Radio...I'd get the dealer to install the Radio for you. My dealer gladly installed my Kenwood unit for me. Pretty much the only deal was I needed to supply everything "ready to go"....which really just consisted of getting the correct harness for the unit. Search past threads and you'll see plenty of posts with the PN#'s and everything needed.

    I've never removed the roof myself, but I dont think its rocket science...2 person job for sure though. Why i'd reccomend the dealer doing it would be to make SURE the cab roof seals are 100% Perfect...again, numerous posts here about Cab Roof seals and the consequences in regards to cab HVAC.

    Thanks for the information Dave. I'll take your advice and ask my dealer if he'll install my radio.

    I will post pics when the new tractor arrives. After waiting this long, I am a little anxious. I used my 4310 last weekend for the last time. It has been a very good tractor but I am ready for a cab. As the old saying goes, "Good Things Come For Those That Wait".

    I will miss the 4310. I am a little concerned that I may not like the E-Hydro transmission on the 3520. My 4310 was a hoss with the electric power reverser. I grew up on a farm where we run all John Deere equipment and I'm accustomed to "gear to ground" performance. As a teenager, I remember when we bought a tractor (a 4840) with the hydraulic shifter transmisson back in 1980. I had been operatng 4020's, 4320's, a 4030, and a 4630 before we bought the 4840. It took some getting used to, but over time I learned the benefits of having one. One thing I am sure of is if it is John Deere green, it has been thoroughly tested and the quality will be top of the line. By the way, I enjoy the discussions in this forum. No one understands why big boys need their toys until they get bitten by the "tractor bug".

    Dont worry about it...I'm from the same background and the ONLY reason I got the eHydro in the first place was because the cab was a must have...
    almost 2 years later, I'm a eHydro believer... I've never ran out of power, only traction.

    I would not be suprized if the PR tranny is eliminated and we are left with only hydro tractors in the CUT division. Just not much need for it anymore.
