 JD 4700 vs 5105

I just ordered a 5105 4wd with a 521 loader. I was getting a 4700 with a 460 but found out I could get the 5105 for less cash. The 5105 is bigger and heaver with a larger engine. I have a lot of snow and timber to remove. Hope I did right. Any comments out there.

I chose the 4700 over the 5105/5205 series for couple of reasons:
1) no backhoe was available for 5105/5205
2) I wanted the hydrostatic trans for loader work
3) no midmount mower was available for 5105/5205
Enjoy your machine. Do not second guess your decision.
Tony,

You hope you did right? If it's the tractor you LIKE best, you did right.

Ron, If you are doing some serious tree halling you will like the extra weight.
I have a 4700 and use the V4000 Fransgard winch to do a little firewood but would not put a real jag on it, it's to light. David

Well Ron, I certainly feel you bought the right one. I also purchased a 4X4 5105 with the 421 loader. The extra weight of the tractor comes in handy when using the loader into piles of dirt and rock. I love mine and have had virtually no troubles with it. Plenty of grunt for hauling the heavy loads, too.
