 New 4310, need advice

My new 4310 just showed up at the dealership yesterday. We won't talk about why it took 3 weeks for it to arrive from one of their other dealers when I could be there and back in 8 hours. It looks great, but they need to work on the missing options. But my problem is I had the sales guy add a Landpride 2560 box scraper. I didn't tell my wife about it. Do I hide it in the shop and plead ignorance when she finds out? Or do I use it for work right away to show her what it can do and why we needed it? Create my own evidence so to speak.

Iowafun, Tell the Mrs. you borrowed the box scraper from me, show her how nice it works, I'm sure she'll tell you to keep it and just send me the money. Mine really isn't for sale, cause it's a great machine, but you might fool her for a while. Seriously enjoy your new Deere, there a neat machine. Frank.

There may be a VERY few who will try the "who wears the pants in around the house" speech but I would try to be straight forward and forthright with her. If you are like me; in your excitement of making the deal you "honestly" ;o) let the box blade slip your mind (you might try throwing in the CRS story at this point but I doubt it will work, ;o) and "Totally" ;o) forgot about it and now you want to come clean.

Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket! ;o) Wink, wink. She probably won't buy that story either but I think if she sees how much you put it to good use and the wear and tear it saves on you; she will warm up to the idea.





Oh.................buy the way....................be prepared for her to buy something pretty expensive that you are not to excited about buying. ;o)

Enjoy the box blade and give your wife my best greetings!

Now THAT would be effective!

In my case, I have the tractor 'because you have the horses, honey, and, well, you just NEED the proper equipment to maintain the facilities...'

Yesssssss

I don't have a plan yet and it's supposed to be delivered this afternoon. I'm excited!! I've been studying the specs and such for about a year before I got the purchase approved. I can't wait!! Especially after I found my old tractor (for sale) with a flat left front tire because the tube has gone bad. Something else to fix before it sells... But the new one is almost hear!!

Iowa, who did you buy your 4310 from? I bought mine in Fairfield. How much $$$ are asking for the 550?

I got my 4310 through Colfax Tractor as they are only 6 miles from the house. It's part of the Vanwall group. I haven't come across anyone with anything good to say about Vanwall. I tried them anyway. The sales guy was very nice and I felt bad for him. The problems were not his fault. He did cut me a great deal on the box blade to make up for the delays.

The 550 Oliver. I'd like to get $4500 but I'm realistic and I'd let it go for $3500. It would save me the effort of listing it on Ebay. It's not perfect by any stretch but does have a Superior loader on it. The PTO was fixed using new parts (PTO clutch was broken when I bought it) with the work done by a local who fixes tractors for a living.

The box blade for my 4310 was the most inexpensive attachment so far, and the most useful! Good luck getting approval for the 4 figure attachments. Sooner or later you will not only want them you'll NEED em.
