    I don't believe that is too high compared to what you paid. My dealer explained that I need to make a move before to the Tier IV engines begin shipping. He hinted at a price increase as well as the $1,500 increase due to the new Tier IV engine. I really don't want to mess with the DEF fluid either.

    OUCH!

    That's pushing $30K with dual remotes, rear work light and electrical connector...wow.

    Mine was delivered two weeks ago, so there was the same pressure of beating Tier 4 and possible price increases. There was a recent discussion about Tier 4 and LS, and people reported what their dealer told them, and it was all over the map. Some said it was going to be a minimal change, up to some saying a 10% increase....so the $1500 jump they quoted is pure speculation. My dealer said they're shipping enough Tier 3 models that there shouldn't be any issue getting one through the end of the first quarter, but predicted a 10% price jump with Tier 4.

    There are definitely regional price differences, but you're only like 240mi away, and closer to the distributor, so shipping should be even less, which makes the price they quoted on the high side. I shouldn't be able to buy a Hyro for what you're paying for a gear model...just sayin'. R,

    Well, went to the dealership again today to take turns playing on the 3039 & 4041. I feel that the 39 is a better fit for me. The loader capacity is still fantastic, substantially better visibility at the front, it's about 14" shorter so I can maneuver it better, I prefer the location of the range shifter & 4x4 shifter, and call me crazy but I'm pretty sure the operators position is actually a fraction larger! It will still handle 6' implements and won't tear up my ground quite as much. It's also a bit cheaper which is always a plus.

    Now just waiting for his best offer on the price & my trade.

    Any of you with the 39 put bigger or wider tires on the front?

    Nope, mine are fine just like they are. Like I mentioned earlier, based on my needs, this is the perfect size........no regrets!

    It is very hard to change size of tires on the tractors with 4 WD since you have to match the OD for the gear ratio to work. You would have to change both front and rear. If you think you may want bigger tires, now is the time to try to get them. Maybe, just maybe, the dealer can special order one for you with larger tires without much of a price increase. It will cost you thousands of $$$ to try to change them later. I don't even know if that is an option. Likely the tires on it are plenty large enough. R4 are wider than AG and give more floatation. Now is the time to decide on type of tires also whether Ag, Industrial or turf as you cant change the later without buying new rims and all 4 tires. I assume you already know this though since you have a Kioti CK20, but many of the readers likely don't so I thought I would mention it.

    Thanks Gary... Hadn't thought of the gearing. Definitely going with R4's, just thought a wider front would help it float a bit better. The 40 series jumps up to some nice beefy, wide fronts.

    Having just come in from playing in the muddy, snowy, watery slopply mess outside with mine... I am pretty **** impressed with how well it does. I only used the diff lock once, and that was because I dug myself in a little hole trying to dig a small tree out.

    Thanks Mangus, I guess I'm talking more about ruts in the ground than with traction.

    You guys with the 39, in regards to using a stump bucket, talk to me about digging out stumps. How capable is the loader strength when ripping out roots and stumps. Keep in mind, I have a ton of stumps, more than half of them are medium sized and larger. The 40 series has roughly 4300 pounds of breakout force, compared with I think 3400 with the 30 series. Whichever ones are too big to take out, I will grind them down with a 3-point grinder.

    Thanks!

    Ahh... in that case.... I should mention how sloppy slimey the yard is, and havent really left a print on it. Granted, I am sure it would make a HUGE mess if it were to lose traction, but it seems to be doing quite fine so far. The rain has probably washed away my tracks on the hill, or I would take a picture tomorrow for you of where I drove with it.
