 Hello Green, Goodbye Orange

Well I made a financial decision yesterday. I had been trying to sell the 4100 the whole latter half of last year, ever since I got the BX22.

I could not generate any interest in it, and a couple months ago I quit trying to sell it and decided if I was going make payments on it I was going to use it so I brought it home.

Yesterday I ordered the new 46 Backhoe for the 4100. I am thinking that since the Kubota's are in such short supply that it will be easier to sell the BX22 than it was to sell the Gear/Deere.

It will be sad to see that little sucker go but it will also be good to have just one tractor payment.

 Hello Green, Goodbye Orange

2 tractor payments???? I guess I am about on par with you then. I have a tractor and my Dodge Cummins payment. Have you asked the local JD dealer if they would sell it on consignment for you if you purchased say a 4310 or 4410 or is that more tractor than what you need of want? I think 4310 or 4410 would be a good choice for the 48 hoe.

It is a new product, sized for the 4100/4110/4115.

And yes, they will handle the BX on consignment if I cannot find a ready buyer.

I'm sure you're aware that JD and Kubota has zero interest for 24 -36 months? When I bought my 4210 I was going to pay cash, but was informed of the zero interest so I decided to use their money for 24 months and make payments. I don't know where you're located but used compact tractors are a big demand here in Northern California. I sold my JD 750 4x4 with FEL, box scraper and 350 hrs for $8500

I am not far... Northern Nevada. I am not sure if the zero percent money applies to component purchases without a tractor in the loan, but I will sure find out.

 Hello Green, Goodbye Orange

Sorry to hear of your options Mark. I know from your comments that you really liked and seemed to enjoy the BX tractor. I'm quite sure it won't take long to sell it as they are in short supply. The other option would be to just reduce the price on the Deere to a wholesale price and dump it if you could find a buyer and keep your BX22.

Zero percent interest? Don't count on it, it's called "False Economy" in fact the Government recently ordered GM to clarify it's ad's by making disclosure that if you buy a vehicle under their "Zero Percent" financing program you will PAY MORE for your vehicle than if you negotiate a cash sale or find your own financing.

I buy several new tractors a year, every year, for the fleet, and my dealer, who is PAINFULLY honest, openly tells me that the (financially) best time to buy is mid-winter when (here anyways) sales are at the lowest point and they are trying to clear out inventory at both the dealer and manufacturer level.

Most dealers will tell you to save your cash and finance the deal at "zero percent" because they make more money that way. Check the sale prices you will see just how 'good' a deal Zero really is.

Best of luck.

 Hello Green, Goodbye Orange

Art, there-in lies the problem. I could give it away and still make payments on it for the next year, but that makes no sense to me.

I think I can get enough out of the BX to pay off the loan and be rid of the monthly payment.

There are a couple of things I can do with the 4100 that I cannot do with the BX, like pick up the nose of my 5th wheel and spot it into it's blind parking spot. The BX loader does not have enough power to lift it.

Someday I would like to get a B2410/7800/2910 class tractor with a backhoe. Having an HST has spoiled me to a certain extent, but I can get by OK with my 4100 Gear as long as it can run a backhoe.

Mark, if moving the 5th wheel is an issue you should try it with a hydraulic deadman dolly, once you have spotted a trailer using it instead of a loader you will wonder how you ever did it before.

Best of luck.
