 JD 4310 with Woods FEL

I'll be looking at a reasonably priced 4310 sometime this week. The ad says it has a new Woods loader instead of the usual 420/430. Has anyone any experience with their loaders? Will it trash the front end or block access to the engine? I guess I should be wondering what happened to the original FEL...

Thanks for any advice.

I believe woods were a good bit cheaper and I have only seen a few on JD compacts. As soon as I saw it was not a JD loader I turned the other direction. It is not that woods does not make good stuff, they do, and may even make the equipment JD sells under the FRONTIER name, I'm not sure

I also turned the other way when I saw a JD 420 loader. What cheap ass would buy that when they could just get the best for that machine, the 430. Woods makes loaders to fit many machines and then brackets for individual brands. I think JD loaders are made for that specific tractor and therefor give better performance. The 430 is the strongest for that machine, look at breakout strength not capacity to find the strongest.

Thanks for the input -- this was my gut feeling. It's being sold by a dealer and my guess is that the original loader was either kept by the previous owner for another tractor, or something evil happened. When I examine it, I'll see what I can see. Certainly, the 430 would be my choice. Much obliged!

What is a good price for a 4310 that is used? and then a new 430 loader?

He's asking $13,900, which would be reasonable with a JD loader. It does have some hours, 1800, which is definitely "used" for a CUT, but he says it's in "like new" condition. The idea did cross my mind to offer to take it w/o the FEL and buy my own 430. Don't know if he'd want to remove the Woods -- I'll know on Wed.

Personally, I would choose the 4300 over the 4310 because of all the "will probably fail and cost a lot", electronics. The hydro pedals are only connected to the tranny electrically through wires. Yes the hydro pedals on the 4300 are stiffer and some of the new features seem nice, but I don't trust them. You can't even engage the PTO gently, the 4310 has a button that you pull, on/off.

To put things in perspective, I purchased my 4300 hydro, 430 loader a month ago with 299 hours in excellent condition. I paid $14,500. This is the going price around me for similar, I passed another the same tractor/loader, with a 72 inch belly, 1 remote and power beyond, 350 hours for 14,500 because of turf tires.

1800 hours is way too many, I would not touch it for a cent over 10,000, and even then, I would keep looking. the ones around me with those hours are all rental retired. Rental=really abused by renters

I was worried about the electronics in the 4310 but I got over it. How often do computers in cars go out? The long term availability may turn out to be an issue, we'll have to wait and see. I really like the 4310 PTO clutch control - you shouldn't be dumping the clutch at high rpm anyway and at slow speeds it engages acceptably smooth. It's great for things like 3-point chippers that you want to operate while standing next to the machine and the clutch pack can be repaired/replaced without splitting the machine (not sure how the 4300 is configured).
