 green or orange???

First off thanks to those of you who responded to my posting of a couple weeks ago and kept me from buying a graden tractor that I now realize would have been a waste of money. "Thanks, thanks thanks. $9,000.00 worth of thanks.So... after reviewing this forum and lots of research in the last two weeks I have narrowed my choices down to two.First: The JD 4100. Local dealer quoted me $14,690.00 with a 54" mower deck. It rides like a dream, runs smoother than the Kubota and for what it's worth the Hydrostatic foot controls seem better laid out. Also I haven't seen specs but the JD feels like it has a tighter turning radius which is a concern for me as 80% of usage will be for mowing. Second the Kubota B2710hst. Local quote $15,500 with a 60" deck. The Kubota has 7 more HP and I can really feel the difference when I drive it. It seems heavier and more solid than the JD but like I said runs a bit rougher. It also seems like it would be better able to handle the rough cut mower and tiller which I will be renting 3 or 4 times a year at least at first. Both dealers seem good (from what I can tell) and both are close. So... 2 questions. How good are the quoted prices? I have seen others quoted cheaper on here and have not started to neqotate yet. So I'm not sure if they will come down or how much. To be honest I'm not sure how to approch them with a cheaper offer. Also, How do these two tractors compare? I know that everyone will have their favorite color and that is fine. But I am also intreasted if anyone has first hand knowlede of either unit?Thanks in advance. I can use all the help I can get. Especially on the negotation part. I know that there are some dealers who read this forum so I would be really intreasted in your perspective on this. Turning radis

Rick; I own a JD 755 which is what the 4100 replaced. So I like green and will probably again buy green. But you really should compare apples to apples. The 4200 would come closer in comparison to the B2710. With that said, If mowing is 80% of your work the Kubota may be the better machine because of less weight. I do not own a B2710 nor have I tried one out, but from the spec's it looks to be a tough, lite weight hard working machine.Hope this helps,David

 green or orange???

Dealer in Warrior, Al quoted me a price of $13,450 (tax and all) last month for a 4100 w/R4 tires, HST drive, DSCV and 60" belly mower, so I would think that you've got a little bargaining room left. I really liked the 4100 a lot and was going to purchase one to take care of my 4 acres, but I managed to buy an additional 7 acres of land next door and I opted to move up to a 4400, which I ordered on 4-15 and from what I've been reading it may get here some time this Fall. Sorry I can't help you on the comparison between the two, I've never owned a kubota, my dad and I have 4 JD's between us and I can't complain about any of them. A good friend of mine recently bought a 4100 and the only complaint that he has is that he can't get his wife off of it. I really don't think that you can go wrong with green or orange, you'll just have to decide which one suits you the best. Hope this helps.

How about the warranties? Check those out too. Also, look ahead 10 years (if you plan on keeping it that long). If you start making repairs, I hear Kubota's parts prices are quite high. Not a big deal now, but maybe in the future.

I love my 4100 Hydro. The foot pedals were one reasons I chose the 4100 over aKubota. I also like the local dealer more, but having the right and left brakecontrols on the side opposite of the hydro controls was important to me. If I droveprofessionally, the Kubota would be okay, but for a weekend warrior, the layoutof the Deere is easier to learn--at least for me. I would like more power . . . but then I'd also like more acreage . . . and more money . . . and . . . the listgoes on. The 4100 more than meets MY needs. Best of luck.

 Do you play poker???????

Go to your dealer and tell him that $14,690 is a little high with only a 54"mower go 60" at least. GET A REAR DISCHARGE MOWER. The lawn will look alotsmoother. Nit Pick the hell out of the deal. Blame your wife or what ever to get the lowest deal. If he can't get the price lower go home he will be calling if your both serious about buying and selling. Yall aint sleeping together so it don't matter if the dealer gets pissed off. Then tell the Orangeguy the same thing. You aint the first guy to tell them this. They heard itall before and know how to answer before you finish the question. It don't matter how you approach them words don't mean nuthin. Just tell them that itstoo much money to drop for what little they are givin ya. No matter how good the deal let THEM THINK that YOU FEEL that your getting screwed. Don't jump upand down and shit sparks no matter what they offer you. Your in control as longas you gotta write the check. Let me know how you do.

Thanks Paul. I suppose your right about the words not mattering. But unlike a car deal I don't really have any other service options ifI get off on the wrong foot with the tractor dealer. Just not sure howto approach it and how far to push it. From what I have seen posted theKubota price is pretty good for a first offer. I am leaning oranger rightnow. Unless there are some horror stories about the 2710 that I haven't foundhere or at kubota source.
