 Deere 4600 purchase

I plan to trade my JD4300 on a new 4600 hydro with MFWD. I would like to hear from 4600 owners about any problems. I plan on ordering with the 72" midmount mower. Does anyone on the board have this combination. Let me know. I value your input.

I have a 4600 w/PowerReverser and 48 hoe...nice tractor but if the 5105 was out I probably would have bought one of those. BTW no problems..

Terry,

Why are you going up to the 4600? Just curious....I have a 4600 powereverser with 210 hours on it. I absolutely love it. I had a problem with the hydraulic control valve. The dealer put a brand new one on it, and it works right now. Also, why did you decide on the hydro instead of the 12 speed?

Dwight M.

Noticing 4600 users here. I have also just posted to a few of the other section on this list. I am interested in moving from the 855 (19hp @ pto) to the 4600 (36 hp @ pto) My JD dealer have several that were used in gondola use at vinyards with less than 100 hrs. I will be adding 4 in one bucket with tilt and top on the 3 point and a 72" scraper box with the manual drop-out riper teeth.

My question any concerns for this tractor? What is the 4700? How does in compair to the 4600? And someone mentioned the 5105 what is the pto hp and is there a real difference in the two? I am limited to my pulling the tractor weight because of the trailer and truck to pull it. So I have to limit the tractor to probably the 4600 because but it is the most practical tractor to my needs.

Mark

Mark, 5105 is a Utility tractor..not a compact. A few $$ less than a 4600 or 4700 but more HP and larger frame. 40-45 PTO hp. I've seen a 4600 and 4700 side by side, the 4700 appears the same size but has a bigger 4cyl engine than the 4600. Also, the 4700 comes standard w/PoweReverser Trans and MFWD. I love my 4600 but if the 5105 was out I probably would have grabbed it because of the greater power (3000 lbs vs 1750 lbs in the loader) and the larger 'hoe you can get w/5000 series (I have the 48 hoe). Have fun shopping...

I talked to my jd dealer today. The capacities are very close between the 4600 and the 5105. There was a 1000 lb weight increase in going to the 5105 though and 4 hp pto. I was cheaper by quite a bit then the 4600 new but I am looking at the 4600 with some hours on it. Approx. $18,000 vs the $24,000 or maybe it was $22,000 for the 5105. The 5105 does not take the 4 in 1 bucket which I want. However that bucket is smaller then the 5105 bucket by about a foot (60 something vs 72"Wink yeah right the power reverser is nice on the 4600 for loader work too! The utility tractor of the 5105 is more real tractor stuff without the frills. Again though the 5105 take me closer to the 7,000 weight limit of my trailer. Not a big deal probably but the 5105 has 3 cyl and the 4600 4 cyl. Hey more choices the more confussing. Kicking tires is pretty fun and the power difference in that in my 855 will be a whole world of difference. I have a bite on my 855 now too! We'll see...maybe that 4600 is getting just a little bit closer to reality.

I was looking at the JD brochure that shows the lifting of the 4600's 460 loader. It shows that the force is 3863 lb/ft breakout force and 2325 lbs lift capacity to max height. The borchure I had for the 5105 did not show a lift capacity that I saw.

Also to the group here...Has anyone used their 4600 or 4500 for any riping, pulling equipment disks etc...through the soil?? I was interested in how the tractor pulls. Has anyone added weights, water in the tires and how much actual was the tractors weight increased to?

I did go down to my JD dealer and ask about the 5105. I would be approximately $6,000 more for the 5105 ($24,000) over the 4600 ($18,000). So I can add some of the options I wanted to the 4600. I can not at this time consider the extra dollars for 4 more hp, the extra weight and larger tractor. Any other thoughts about this comparison to help me.

Any other options that others have put on this tractor that would be of benifit?
Someone had mentioned about valving. Is there a type or manufacture of valving to watch out for or is this strictly JD parts and which ones were they.

How difficult is it to set up work lights to the rear that can be switch seperatly to the running lights?

Has anyone used the loan program? Any comments about being pleased problems?

I just need some other experienced help here to assist my decision. It appears that I just sold my 855. So next week (hopefully) they'll trade cash and get a tractor in return. I will likely deliver it (after I go to the bank). I will hopefully have made my decision so when I go into the JD dealer I will know I have made the best decision.

Thanks to this list!!!

Thanks

The implements I have for my 4600 are:
6' disk
6' straight blade
7' bush hog
6' box blade

I put a 35 gallon water tank on the disk, to make it weigh about 900 lbs. I can lower it to its deepest position (about 6" disking depth) and pull it just fine with the 4600(even through muddy spots). It handles all of those implements well. I have 210 hours on it, and the hydraulic control valve was replaced because it wouldn't 'float' properly. That is the only problem I have had. If you get the powereverser, I DEFINATELY recommend the creeper option.


Dwight
