 Want to purchase a John Deere 4200

I am interested in purchasing a new John Deere 4200(2 wheel drive, Hydro trans., mid-PTO,
turf tires). The price quote I receved from the dealer was $ 15,522.
This seems high to me--however I know next to nothing about tractors.
What should I expect to pay?

If I were to consider a KUBOTA instead of the John Deere, what model would I consider and what
price range?

I plan to use the tractor with a mid-mount 60" mower(quoted at $3620) for grass cutting .
I have about 6 acres to cut.

I'd appreciate any information on the above questions.

Thanks,
Ron L.

My opinion is that you are buying a bigger machine than is needed for a 60" mower. If I was mowing 6 acres, I'd be looking at a 72" mower, minimum. I think the 4200 is the minimum in the Deere line for 72", in a belly mower.

If you want a 60" mower, you can look at the 400 series Deere garden tractors, or their 4100. The Kubota BX would be another good 60" machine.

I use a JD 935 with a 72 inch cut for the same area you are looking at. I have lots of trees "Orchard" that helped make my choice! I was going to get a tractor to cut my yard... but it wouldn't be the same trying to cut around 200 trees with a tractor so last year was a yard cutter... next year a real tractor!

 Want to purchase a John Deere 4200

A couple of things to consider: The prices of the big 3 (or 4) tend to be very similar for comparable machines, and so are the performances. They all are good machines. It's often a bunch of small factors that taken together appeal to different people. One approach is to ignore the specs. They often are just confusing. Basically, all tractors of similar power do about the same work and have about the same maneuverability. There's a good chance that the tractor a person likes best ends up being the best tractor for them. A person won't know that without trying a few. Sometimes, a tractor just isn't comfortable or the controls aren't convenient for an individual, and then the choice is obvious. It’s easy to get ‘branded’ without even knowing it.

The main choices are how much power, which type of tire and HST or not. I left out 4wd a choice because I consider 4wd almost an essential in a compact. However, there are some features such as NH Super Steer that are worth considering if special operational requirements exist. The main thing is to get something that is liked (REALLY LIKED!) because it's going to cost a lot and going be around for many years. Within all of this, if JD is the one that appeals, it's worth keeping track of the new model introductions. There might be some discounted prices on the older models.

Don's comment about the 72" vs. the 60" mower is about the choice of power. The question really is how fast you want to finish a job in other words, how wide are the implements are going to be. Wide implements usually are quicker, unless there's a lot of maneuvering to do, and wide implements require more power. It's worth noting that for finish mowing, more power also means a heavier tractor and more tire tracks in the lawn. It's also worth noting that more power means more trimming to do around landscaping and more time taken in turns. For large heavily landscaped yards, it's possible that a small tractor would be quicker.

If your object is to cut lawns only then a front mounted mower unit will cut the lawn quicker and allow closer trimming around trees.
I have ~ 3 acres in lawn and it takes me ~ 2.5-3 hours to cut. I have a number of trees. This does not include trimming. I am also seeded in Centipee thereFore I don't need to cut too often, but this will give you an idea of the time with a HST tractor and 60" mower.

My rule of thum is too buy at least the next size up in tractor.Example if the company recomends a 4100 to mow with a 50 inch deck i would get a 4200 at least.This way you don't work the engine so hard. This is just a suggestoin what I do.Think your equipment lasts longer.

I tend to think the 'next step' up is a good idea as well, but my reason is that tractors are around for a long time and you're never certain of everything you're going to want them to do. Most differences between small and large is how long a job takes, but there are some operations where lack of power or size will stop you cold. I bought the size tractor I did because I needed to trench to a minimum depth. A smaller tractor wouldn't handle a big enough hoe.

The tractor is sort of medium sized for most work I do, and the size does slow me down for some things. However, I still remember the 6" concrete slab the loader wouldn't get off the ground. The smaller the tractor, the more things there are that'll stop you cold. On the other hand, my tractor is one step smaller than recommended for my box scraper. I manage the traction problems, and I guess wear and tear too, by going slower, taking smaller bites and extra ballast. There's a bunch of ways of using an implement that is slightly over-sized for a tractor, but having more power is maybe the easiest. Of course, there are places a big tractor can't get to, and that'll stop you cold too. I'm not sure where the tally sheet between 'can't do' and 'can't get to it' stands for me. If I've got the right tractor, it should balance out, and I think it does. What I wanted to avoid is having a tractor that’s real good for one job but still leaves me paying people or using something else frequently for other work. A tractor costs a lot of money, and my object is to keep it pretty busy.

For similar reasons, and some safety things too, I’d get a 4wd, even if the intended use is finish mowing of flat ground. This summer I had a surprising example, of how little tractor there is in 2wd with turf tires when going downhill without a lot of weight on the 3ph. Going downhill tends to unload the rear tires.

Ron,
I bought the tractor today from Corrither Tractor Co, Lenoir, NC 828-758-5506. leonard Barnett.
They were $1200 below any dealer. I advise anyone that is looking for a JD to contact him.
