 John Deere 5225 Shopping

I am new to the forum although I have been reading for a while. I now have a good reason to ask everyone for their views. I have spent the last eight years with my Deere 4200 collar shift clearing and smoothing out our 15 acres and received the bad news that the rear end is about to give up the ghost. The diff lock no longer works and the mechanic told me that the rearend possibly would fail soon. Discussions with the chief financial officer has resulted in the approval to buy a 5225. Now the research is on to see what I want on it. After eight years with a collar shift transmision, the first thing is a power reverser. The main reason for going with the 5000 series is for the larger size frame and weight for moving round bales. I know the larger 4000 series will do it but I would like to have something that is not on the borderline of its capabilities. I haven't seen much on the 5x25 on the board and was wondering what the general opinion is of them and what would be the best way to order it. I will be getting a FEL for it of coarse.
Thanks in advance

The 5x25 series is a big jump in size and weight from the 4000 series. The 5225 and 5325 use the same style engine as the 4x20 series although in a 5 cylinder version. The 5425 and 5525 use the older proven design engine. If I were you and was going to make the leap to 5000 series, I would go with the 5425 for the heavier duty engine. Or if that is too much of a strain the budget, I would consider a used 5210 or 5220. They are both available with the power reverser also. I don't see too many changes from the ten and twenty series that would make me spend the extra money on the 25 series anyway. the only problem I can think of to watch for on a used one is to make sure the brakes are not dragging. If you can't push it easily on level ground in neutral, you have a problem that will require removal of the final drives. I've seen quite a few of those. Just my opinion.
