 4310 vs 4410 HP question

I have been shopping for a new CUT. I had decided on a 4410 HST, but when I went to the dealer he searched nation wide and only found 6 of them left (they are introducing a new 3XXX model, so the 4410 has been discontinued). The dealer has a new 4310 in stock. My question is: Do you think that the 26 (4310) vs 29(4410) PTO HP will be noticable? I have 5 acres of empty land that we will be converting to garden/horse pasture. I will be tilling the garden area and using a box scraper for leveling. I plan on using an MX5 brush cutter for maintaining the fields. Any insights are greatly appreciated. secondary question: Any idea on the price difference between the two machines?

Thanks,
Rambling

The 4410 is nice if the budget will accomodate but I think you will be very happy with the 4310 which will do pretty much most of what a 4410 will do and will save you about $1,500. Unless you need the extra hp the 4310 is the best buy.

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

rambling; I've got one of each, the only place I've noticed much difference is in heavy rotary cutter (MX5) work, the 4410 just does it a little easier, other than that the 4310 will do you fine. Frank.

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

I went with the 4310 and have not regretted it. Great machine. I wanted the extra power of the 4410, but couldn't justify the extra cash for the 3 hp. Dealer wanted something like $2k more for the 4410. I have not missed the 3 ponies.

I don't run an MX5, but a 72" mmm. If I get into deep stuff, I slow a bit which is still faster than the old lawn tractor I had been using.

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

I run a 4310 with an MX5. A 4410 may run it a bit easier but I haven't found anything that I couldn't cut, and it has never struggled. I've hacked down a lot of 2-3" scotch broom (tough stuff) and the 4310 never faltered. I'd think the 4310 would work just fine for you.

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

I am sure you will be fine with the 4310, I have a 4300 and sure I would like a few more horses, heck a lot more horses Wink yeah right, but realistically it would only make the machine a little faster in a few situations. Besides, once the warranty runs out, you may be able to add those few more horses if you really want them, for a lot less money, so I am told by the Yanmar dealer.

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

I hope this doesn't show up three times, but my ISP has cut me off twice.

Many "Thank you's" to the folks sharing there knowledge. It is great to hear from people who are actually doing work with the same tractor that I am considering.

I am planning on seeing the dealer Monday about buying the 4310. For those of you who own the 4310, can you tell me what the cost of the tractor and implements was? I want to have an idea of what a good deal on the 4310 should be before I go in.

Thanks again,

Rambling

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

Since the 4310 is on a close-out it would be tough to compare my prices to what you might be able to do. Normally, 10-20% off MSRP is the range you are looking for. Since the tractor is on close-out you might do a little better on it, but not on the implements.

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

Once again - thank you to all the inputs. I signed the papers today for the 4310 HST 4x4 with the 300CX loader and loaded tires. I also am getting the following rear implements:

665 rototiller
BB2072 Land Pride Box Scraper w/rippers
6x6 liftable chain harrow
I-match hitch
RCR1860 Rotary Cutter with slipper clutch

I was going to go with an MX5, but the delivery to our dealer was quoted as May and I can't wait that long. Is the RCR1860 a comparable cutter? It is close in weight (734 vs 717 - I think) and has a slightly higher tip speed of around 1600+ fps).

I am pleased and excited about getting the tractor delivered soon.

Rambling

 4310 vs 4410 HP question

Actually the MX5 is listed at a weight of 823 lbs. It is also specified as a medium duty rotary cutter. In my opinion, the Land Pride RCR 2660 is about the closest match weighing in at 878 lbs. but it has a low tip cutter speed. I like the Woods model 600 which has a blade tip speed of approx. 15,525 fpm. It is a bit heavy at 1039 lbs. but one of the best cutters out there on the market in my opinion. If I end up keeping my 4410, the Wood model 600 is the rotary cutter I plan to purchase.
