 Kubota M4700 w/ 180 hrs 4wd L1001 loader

This is a great resource! I have been following this board for 8 months and looking for good used compact tractor for about 6+ months and I need some help or at least some opinions.I know that the Kubota M4700 is not a "compact", but I'm considering a used 97' M4700 4wd, ag tires & L1001 loader 8 forward speed / 4 reverse (not shuttle shift) with 180 hrs for use in light clearing, landscaping, and moving materials while building a house on 3 acres. Lot has gentle and some not so gentle slope. After home is built, I will likely sell tractor and go smaller - say L3010 size. I need help with sereral questions. Location is piedmont North Carlina. I'm considering making offer this week.1. What would be fair price offer on tractor & loader to individual, tractor has been available for 6 months +. Is $15,000 - $20,000 offer high / low? Tracter is not perfect but looks 90 - 95%. Is 97 model an issue?2. How easy would this tractor be to resale - is market much smaller for larger midsize tractor?3. Would M4700 be more stable of slope than compact, my feeling is that it would more stable due to wider stance and longer wheel base. Wheels are currently filled with liquid, not sure how much. Is there a way to determine optimal level.4. What implements would I need to for preparing lot / lawn etc. A 48" Long tiller is available with purchase, would need boxscrape and forks. What else and would the tiller be of great value of should I leave out?5. I would add pallet forks. Kubota forks cost? and take how long to swap with bucket? Other suggestions for bucket & forks?6. Should I look at something else? Is this model good tractor?I know this is a lot to ask, but any help / opinion is appreciated.

Again, this board is very helpful,, what was driving me to the 4700 was stability and my perception of $value. I offered $17k for tractor & loader after being told by local dealer that the wholesale was $15800 for 97' with loader/4wd/180hr and was rather rudely rejected by individual. Was this way out of line?

As I will be doing close maneuvering. My preference is and has been the 3710 HST with quick-release loader, forks, R4 tires set as wide as possible and box scrape. But it seems that everyone wants this tractor and I don't want to spend more than $20K - What do I give up HP, HST, or Orange ... or Help!

.... as i said ,it took me 6 months of looking before i bought my 3600 with loader, gst trans with 15hrs.2yrs warranty left. i went to my 3 local dealers and they said you pay list or we see you later. i started watching the local paper and thats where i found my tractor. ironically the seller had tried to sell the machine back to the dealer, he offered her 66% of here money back. boy was she mad. so i split the difference with her and were both happy. fyi i got tractor, loader, ballast, r-4 tires and se-6 rhino bushhog for 17k back in august.

Hey guys thanks again and I hate to keep asking but - help me here - 24" (low profile tires?) What would be the tire size of these low profile tires on 4900? What type tred? R4 or are they the super turf tires. I would think the 4900 with low profile tires would have to be more stable than 3710 with R4 tires? Suggestions on who might be able to answer question? What is the lowest profile tire for each tractor with at least r4 type tred? I will definitely fill either tractor's tires.

Again can't thank you enough. If the 3710 would be as stable, I sure would like to have that confirmed. Otherwise, I would consider the 4700.
