    I'm sure the 4 series is a beefy machine but also keep in mind that the CX loader has more real capacity than the 400X does. At 59" I think it's several hundred pounds.

    True, but the 400X loader is still a beefy loader as well and would operate great on the 4520 that Yanmars is looking at! The 4520 w/400X loader is a heck of a package!

    I love my 4320 and 400x. It has been everything I hoped for. It's technically a compact but it feels and acts a lot more like a utility. The series is mostly unchanged since it came out in '04, which says something.

    If the price is right you probably can't go wrong.

    I have the 4520 with the 400x. It is a remarkable machine and worth the bucks. It has the 4 cylinder JD made engine. If you have any specific questions ask away.

    We have a 4120 and 400x. Very nice platform! About the only bad thing I have to say about it is, I wish Deere could have made a gas gauge that actually worked correctly.

    I have a 4520 and 400X loader and in 3 years have over 1000 hours. had to replace a tire due to not looking and knocked valve stem off and in backing up cut the side wall.
    A couple of steering hoses broken off when hit a stump.
    and agreed need to go back to old fashioned fuel guage. wooden paint stick How any modern engineer with all the knowledge of what can be done and can't figure out how a fuel guage works. wish I knew how to disconnect to get rid of the flashing light and reading of low fuel.
    Maybe improve the plastic on caution lights. One whack with a twig and its broken only 30 bucks to replace.
    The tractor is everything I wanted power wise . lifting round hay bales need weights on rear.

    The price was $21,000 which would include a Woods finishing mower and a quick hitch on the tractor. The negatives are that it has 2600 hours and it was not his tractor originally. He has other green tractors and I thought it was one of those.
    He bought this off a leasing company and has only put on a few hours with it. With no real history of who and how the hours were placed on the machine I have reservations.
    Thanks for all the information.

    I paid 17,500 for a 4120 w/ a 400x with 265hr on it. But that was close to 3 years ago. That does sound a little high given the hours and history.
