 Orange owner with Green question

I currently own orange, but I want a CUT w/ FEL and ran accross this 4100 Deere. It's a 1999, virtually new with 100 hours, and includes a model 410 FEL, RMM (aftermarket) and rear blade. Asking price is $10K. This is a gear tractor. Is it true this unit does not have live mid PTO? My main work is mowing, and I thought about selling the RMM and buying a Deere MMM, but if mid PTO is dead, this is bad idea.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

JF

You are correct, PTO is dead and so is the value of that tractor. With hydor trans it is live. Gear 4100 are very hard to get rid of and it seems many are for sale. I wonder why? Wink yeah right That price is too high for what it is. Someimes going cheap really costs you at resale time.

Yup. If you push in the clutch on a 4100 Gear the PTO's wind down.

That said, it has an amazing range of ground speeds that helps out a little on the plus side, and you can't stall the darn things. I used to drive mine up the front steps.

I have read several accounts on this forum of folks mowing with this model with complete satisfaction, but I think each of them had only used a Gear trans and learned to use it well. They didn't have HST experience to compare it to.

Anyone with some HST experience would find the "manual of arms" for this tractor needlessly complicated.

Denwood is right, they are very slow movers on the used tractor market, and should be priced accordingly.

Regarding 4100 gear tractor again:

Thanks for the feedback. Are you guys telling me the mid PTO AND rear PTO are both dead? Or is it just the mid PTO that is dead? If both are dead, then I will not place a bid. However, if the rear is a live PTO, then I'll make an offer, although much, much lower than $10K.

I don't know if dead is the right term, but they both operate the same. Both PTO's are not "live".

Both the Mid and rear PTO's will stop when the clutch is pushed.

Do yourself a favor and go drive the gear and the hydro models. I believe that after using both, the hydro will win hands down since you will be using it primarily for mowing and loader use. After you drive them both, you can make a much more informed decision...and remember, whenever you push in the clutch, the PTOs will slow down pretty quickly. If brush hogging for example, and the brush and weeds gets too thick, the brush hog will quit as you clutch to put it in a slower gear...so reverse to get the spot you missed, then forward in a slower gear. A big mistake on John Deere's part in my opinion.
