Purchased my JD 5093E to run my round baler and haybine. My other tractor is a Deutz 6240 4WD which I purchased new in 1989 and still is a great tractor. Just needed the additional horsepower 93 vs 45 to run my haying operation. Overall the John Deere has performed flawlessly. I also purchased a front end loader with the tractor. Love the joystick. Great hydraulics.
On the haying operation, this tractor has no problems running a 10 ft haybine and a JD 4x5 baler. Also use it for regular farm chores like manure spreading, hauling firewood and plowing snow. Plan to do some plowing and disking with it this spring.
