 955 to 4410

I just traded my (1998) 955 FEL with 450 hours to my local dealer to buy a 4410 (Hydro trans) w/FEL.

955 Trade value = $10,500
4410 purchase with FEL(430), R4's, SCV = $22,400 plus $125 prep, $600 freight. Total, (on the farm)is $23,125

2 questions. 1.Fair prices? 2.Should I be comcerned about the new fangled electronics? I have read the discussions and they are mixed. I did find some 4400's (new) for sale and maybe I should stick with what is tried and true?
Karl

 955 to 4410

I was one of those who questioned the switches and the electronics. Then I realized that my 4100 has several switches hanging out in the weather too. There are at least three of them: one under the seat and at least one on each control lever for the trans and the PTO.

Bottom line: Two years out in the weather and no problems. And I am kinda sorry I raised so much hell over the topic to begin with, but I still don't quite get the load match thing.

That is my true confession for the month. Mark

Karl,

To your first question...Since you've already made the deal, I won't go there.

Second Question...I have a 4610 ehydro and haven't had any problems with the electronics. Some one did post that a JD mechanic told them, out of all the electronic switches, a bad PTO switch is the only one that would keep your tractor from going.

Billy

I looked at the new 4510 and was thinking how the compacts are moving fwd like their big brothers.

My take on those switches mounted out in the weather is: I work in the road construction industry. Switches have been out there in the weather for a long time, abused and misused and they are still working.

Bottom line JD did not just invent those switches last weekSmile. If you wanna see lots of electronic switches go look at new Caterpillar equipment. Heck just look at one of the big JD's on the tractor lot...
