 TURF TIRES, ETC

trying to decide between bx 24 w/ 20 hrs 300 miles away for 13,500 vs 17k for a new one. any ideas on bonded shipping companies?
also i prefer the turf tires as i will be driving over newly established lawn. how much should i be willing to pay extra say, for dealer to put turf tires on a new one. i say dealer should do it for no extra if i buy a new one.

It's similar to buying a car and requiring different tires. I doubt there's a cost difference between the two, though one brand of Chinese tractors costs $700 extra for turf (not sure why). If he orders tractor from the factory the way you want it, there's no extra cost to him. If he has a dozen on his lot and just interchanges the round things, it's an hour's labor. But if he has to replace the rims+tires or just the rubber, it will cost him and leave him with the old ones. And he could get the turfs from another dealer, from a tractor tire firm, or from the maker. So what it will cost him depends on how he does it, and what he charges you depends on what he can.

The used one for 13,500 sounds like the way to go depending on a lot of things. Why is it being sold with twenty hours? How old is the tractor? Is it set up the way you would like it? Can the current owner provide proof of ownership? Bonded shipping companies I know nothing about.
The new tractor, what tires come as standard equipment? Frank.

You will have more contact patch with turf tires than any other type out there. Grass isn't as delicate as one may think. What kills the grass is compacting the soil around it so it can't breathe or absorb water. I use R-4 on my 3,200 lb New Holland to finish mow.

Transporters bonded or not, insured or not are going vary widely on prices. I looked into it a few years ago for my equipment. I was getting prices from .75 a mile to $2.00.

You might be further off just renting a trailer and making a long weekend of it.

As far as tires and the dealer, each and every situtaion is different in at the same dealer for the same deal. Put your cards on the table withe salesman and ask for his best offer, telling him you are shopping for the best deal. But as I (sort of) tell my contracting customers, if you piss me off too much don't expect to come back again wanting something for nothing. This is after they tell me they can get it done for half the price--but then want to have me finish the job because the other guy either took their money or did a poor job or both.

When I had my BX it cost $300 for a complete set of new tires and rims.

No doubt it is a bit more now, but it is not a back-breaker on top of a $13K deal.

If I were not buying from a very major company, there is no way I would send money for a tactor I had not put my hands on. Too many scams out there. Now saying that, I have bought twice without seeing the machine but with one had relationship and payment was due on their deliever of the machine and the other was with a major company, not even a dealership. In both cases very pleased.

EW; You're gettin kinda hard on some of us hillbilly folks. In your educated world you never knew that a tracor is a tractor without tracks?
Never fear Obama is at the helm now, hang on to your shorts.
