    My R4047H was delivered on Sat, and while I only have 5hrs on it, I'm impressed. Just FYI, it was $21,500 delivered (added forklift attachment for a total of $22,250). It's hard to compare prices from different regions, but thought it might give you some intel.

    I should note that the one frequent comment/gripe I've heard is somewhat valid. Folks say that it's a tight fit for big guys. I don't think it's so much the seating position, as it is the space between the fenders and pedals when you're getting on/off. If they opened up that area a little bit, it would be better....I may cut an inch or so off the left side of the left brake pedal. It won't impact function, and will make ingress/egress easier. That's it so far...

    i looked at the 40 series also the 30 series to me is a lot more nimble that is why i got the 3039 is the price you got with a FEL and loaded tires ??

    My price was with FEL. I'm 6'3" and 275lb. My impression on fit is the same. My dealer said he could raise seat 2" with blocking.

    The dealer has been informed to ready my chariot!!!


    My financing was approved. I just need to iron out the details of my downpayment, and final cost of the tractor.

    I have the dealer down to 18600, dropping the 'premium warranty' (meaning free pickup & delivery for warranty work), and being able to drop some being a 'cash deal' by not financing through them.

    He would go down another $400 by not loading the tires... making it 18200. That seems to be right in the price range I was seeing elsewhere.

    I was able to sneak a look at his invoice for the tractor while he was off doing something, and honestly, he is not making much on the deal. I am comfortable with the price, and now I just need to arrange my down payment. I have most of what is needed, just need to make sure I have enough!

    If all goes well, its possible I will have it on Saturday!!!
