Nosteiner4me,

I'm sure you'll enjoy the tractor.....and I'm willing to bet that it won't be going back to the dealer. hehehe.

Congratulations!

I like a dealer that lets a guy test out a new machine at home. The 2520s sure look nice. Have they fixed the cheesy tilt steering wheel mechanism? Be sure to let us know your impressions. If it's as good as my 4310 is I'm sure you'll be happy, but be sure to crawl underneath and make sure any loose wires are tied up nice and tight.

Ok test drove the 2520 over the weekend and it was very nice. The tires seem a little bumpy, knobby and probably switch to turf since just really mowing. I guess the big concern my wife has is that the machine had 2.9hrs on it and it has some rust spots already on the fenders and the rops. The tractor has been sitting outside for months on his lot. Would he be outraged if i told him to order me a new one without the rust? I would do the same with a new car that cost over $20,000. The 72 inch deck worked well even though it needs leveled right to left. I would keep the 72 inch deck,200cx loader some rust on bucket OK by me, and just need new mower? or is it a stupid request? I am paying cash for this thing too.

KW...Forgot to mention about the tilt steering wheel. Yeah they fixed it alright and made it tiltless.

I think most of the JD compact models with tilt wheel are also tiltless Smile

As far as the condition of the machine, it seems that a few rust spots on new machines of all brands are common. New car expectations don't really apply (not that they shouldn't). A little surface rust is not a big deal, the tractor will look used soon enough.

Congrats.

I wouldn't get too excited about tilt steering either, at least on the Kubotas the tilt only allows the wheel to move a couple of inches. I don't think any of ours ever get moved. I know my own hasn't moved since I got it, even my ex who was really tiny didn't bother to move it.

My girlfriend is about 5'8" so tilt isn't needed at all, figuring out how to keep her of it so I can play with it myself is my only concern now. Wink yeah right

Best of luck.

My guess is that Dennis added that picture to exercise his new embedded image code. A helpful guy that Dennis.

Nostiener; I'm sure the dealer would order you a new one, but the small rust spots aren't that hard to correct. I'm sure you would pay a bit of a premium being he would have to bring the one you have back in and clean it up, and have a slighty higher houred new machine on the lot. The last two Deere's I bought I ordered simply because the dealer didn't have one on the lot that had the factory installed features I wanted. Frank.
