 cost year model !!!!!!!!

Hey guys help me out. I have a dealer that tells me these tractors our new. Has not commited that this machinery was made for 2004 or 2005. What year model at this time of year should be on the lot? I know when you buy a vehicle that the year matters no matter if it's got 0 miles. What should look for on the tractor to tell me what year? Would appreciate any help. It's a L 3130 HST ,LA723 FEL with BH90 hoe

just in case the question is not clear. I know that if i buy a 2004, value wise you lose as soon as it's off the lot, more than you would if it's 2005. What do you think?

I think there are a few differences between the auto market and the tractor market. At least I hope there are. Automakers use model runs as a marketing tool to sell more units, and to update technology. This has been traditionally done in model year runs, but even that is getting muddled with model years being introduced earlier in the year than the traditional September launch.

Tractor models do change from year to year, but not like autos. Tractors are monitored in hours, not miles. The only way to really know what year tractor you are buying, unless there was a nodel change, is from the serial number. A tractor model may runs for several years without changing. The value of the tractor will be determined by what model it is, the condition of the machine, and how many hours are on it. As long as the dealer didn't leave it out front of the store for a year weathering, the year the machine was built is not a key indicator of it's value.

Nevertheless... the dealer should be able to identify the model year of each unit on his lot.
