    Don't know anything about that model but Like my MF 2012 4x4 2605 with FEL. Not sure which dealers are close but would look at other brands for comparison.

    I don't know that model specifically. From a little research, it appears to be the immediate predecessor to the current 1540 model. Smaller fuel tank, engine specs look the same. Details list hydrostatic, whereas 1540 is powershuttle. Not sure what you're looking at exactly of course.

    I do enjoy my MF 1635, and have not been left wanting yet. Good luck

    A friend of mine has a 1440 and not long after he bought his, I bought a 1540. The 1540 had a number of small improvements all over compared to the 1440.

    $13,500 seems a bit high, IMO, especially considering I bought the 1540 new in '07 for $22,500. The 1440 is an older model and now used for eight years. I'd think it should go for around $10-$12K, depending on condition/hours.

    Your intended use of the tractor? Your location, particulars etc ? That 32HP will carry a 20Kw pto standby generator as well.

    Bought a new 1635 last month , am impressed . 13,500 for a 1440 8years old does sound a tad high
