    Default Buying a JD 4520

    Anyone own a JD 4520 by chance? If so, what do you like/dislike about it. Been looking for a new tractor for awhile and just ordered a 4520. After looking at the Case DX55/ NH TC55, I preferred some of the JD features a little better. Probably a little late since I ordered the tractor already, but figured I'd see what the prevailing opinions were.

    Thanks,

    JP

    Welcome to the site & congrats on your new tractor!

    Might get a few more responses in the deere specific forum as I'm not sure if everyone reads every forum.

    i don't own one, but am open to seeing any pictures you have when you get it!! in truth, i think you will fully enjoy your JD. the 4000 series are some very capable machines and ive not heard many complaints from owners.

    Well, I don't have a 4520, but I do have a 4320. Only have 22 hours so far...and so far it has been great!

    I have a 4320, pretty close to yours. 115 hours.
    I don't like:
    - the engine noise. It's Loud!
    - the puff of black smoke on startup
    - the cheap plastic door that covers the fuel fill
    - the lack of traction [I have R4's, not the tractor's fault]
    - the weak 400X loader [you should get the 400CX]
    I do like:
    - the ease of use
    - the comfortable seat and ergonomics
    - the maneuverabilty; better than my 2nd choice TC40
    - the little engineering details that just make the thing work better/smarter
    - the green paint
