My local dealer gave me a price of $12,420 for a 2000 4100 and i think I read on the side that it was a gear. it also includes a new 4.5 foot fel, new posthole digger with 6.5" auger and a new 4' brush hog. oh and it has less than 100 hours. I am just using it with the above attachments. do you think this deal would be ok.

I paid $24500 for a BRAND NEW 2005 4115, with FEL, Frontier rear 6 ft blade, 46 BH, R4 loaded tires, Hydro, a 9" and a 24" bucket, and a 47 tiller, I had zero hours and a full warranty.
Your 4100 is 6 years old and has 100 hrs and NO Warranty and is gear.
I would try offering $10,000 and see what the response is and wait for a day or two for the dealer to dwell on your offer.
Bottom line is, if $12000 feels Fair to you and YOU will be happy then it is a GOOD deal. ....

Sometimes it helps to separate out the components.

If the FEL, PHD and brush hog are truly brand new and my guesstimates are correct, he is asking about $7500-$8000 for the used tractor. That is not totally out of line.

Next you should probably ask where the thing has been for the last 5 years or so and what happened to the original attachments. If there weren't any, find out what the tractor was used for.......

What brands of attachments are we looking at here? Is the FEL a Deere 410? How about the other stuff? What kind of tires does it have?

The 4100 Gear was a very slow seller as most folks wanted an HST. That should factor into the negotiations. They are very reliable machines.

I had one and liked it well enough, but it was complicated and labor intensive to operate, especially when doing FEL work. ....
