    4700 is here!

    Finally got my tractor over the weekend, 4700 MFD w/ hydro, had a lot of rain, but still had time to play some. Got a FEL w/ heavy duty bucket, tooth bar, grapple (from anbomanufacturing.com) and...

    Re: Brush Hog question

    You may want to check the blades. I was having the same problem until I got a newer rotary mower. The blades on the newer one are turned up at the ends to create suction to pull the grass up that...

    Re: John Deere vs Kubote

    I recently looked at both brands and both seem to be well made. The John Deere's seemed a little more user-friendly and heavier. One nice feature of the Kubota is on the M6800 you have a manually...

    Re: 4700 or 5210?

    I thought the price on the backhoe was pretty good too, thats why I didn't waste any time getting it. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it has a 24" bucket, I would have preferred to...

    Re: 4700 or 5210?

    Dan,
    Thanks for your reply. I think I've read every post on this forum which has helped a lot. Anyhow, the dealer loaned me a JD 4500 with FEL to try out. I was amazed at what the the little...

    Re: Workboots

    My wife makes fun of my workboots too, but here's what I like: Wet weather - Danner gore-tex work boots that lace almost to the too about 200 but worth it, comfortable and waterproof. Dry weather -...

    Thanks for all your help guys. I went back to the John

    Price Check Re: Good price for 5210 and 4700?

    around $25K for the 4700 w/ a loader and a couple hundred more for the 5210 w/ loader. I guess the HST is driving the price up on the 4700.

    Price Check Good price for 5210 and 4700?

    Whats a good price for a 4700 w/ MFWD, HST and loader? and a 5210 MFWD and loader? Dealer is quoting about the same price for either, seems like the 5210 should cost a lot more.

    Re: Buying new tractor L4610 or M4900

    I finally drove a HST! I couldn't find a kubota to drive but drove a JD 4700. It was really nice. The dealer was very helpful. I also drove a 5210 which would be about the same as a M4900. I...

    Re: Buying new tractor L4610 or M4900

    Thanks for the info. I have another question though. I noticed while looking at a Kubota today that the steering linkage is in front of the front axle (MFWD) which would seem to be susceptible to...

    Bill, Thanks for the "heads-up". I've only talked to them on the phone, haven't been there in person. One thing I did like about them was they quoted a good price up front which was a couple of...

    Re: Buying new tractor L4610 or M4900

    Thanks for the advice concerning the HST. However after getting some "semi-firm" prices I may go with the M6800. As far as I can tell it doesn't weigh any more than my Massey, has a lot more...

    Re: Buying new tractor L4610 or M4900

    Thanks for all the input, still have a question though. Talked to the dealer today and he has a GST L4610 in stock. Sounds like the GST and HST would function about the same. Why would you choose...

    Re: Buying new tractor L4610 or M4900

    Jeff, sounds like we will be doing the same thing except for the snow. I live in GA, been years since the last snow. How do you operate the HST transmission (I've never driven one)? and how...

    Buying new tractor L4610 or M4900

    I'm in the market for a new tractor. Currently have a MF 240 rated at 45PTO. My tractor has the old fashioned gear shift (no shuttle shift) or I'd put a loader on it. Also the MF MFD turning...
