 4710 on the way

Just wanted to thank everyone who provided input on purchasing.

I have 20 acres about 1 mile from Hallam, Nebraska. As you may have seen, we took major tornado damage in that area over the weekend. I was planning to purchase near the end of July, as that is when my outbuilding goes up but decided to pull the trigger now to clean up the tree damage.

I had originally set my sites on a 4310 with FEL and Cutter but talked to the local dealer and I think I got a pretty fair deal on the 4710 with the same options. (460 FEL and an LX6 cutter) I debated about fluid vs weights and am opting for 400lb of wheel weights to start out. I am also getting a used scraper and hydrolic feed chipper.

Looks like the new toy/tool will see some serious work in the very near future.

If you want to see the type of damage I am talking about check the link for pictures.

I do have one more question for the group... Is the extended warranty from Deere something to consider? Looks like it would add a little over $1000 for an extra 36 months and 2000 extra Hrs. of coverage.

Again, thanks for the help.

John

Congratulations on your new tractor! It looks like you have plenty of need for it So Sad

You don't have to decide on the extended warranty right away. I think you have up to a year after purchase to buy it without inspection. I'm debating this purchase right now and am leaning against it. It only covers engine and transmission, not the hydraulic or electrical systems or anything else.

 4710 on the way

The 4710 is here and what a wonderful unit it is. I have only put a couple of hours on it but I am already amazed at the power it has.

I have done some mowing, stump moving and rock spreading. What a joy this unit is to run. Really not much harder than running a garden tractor.

I did have one problem when I somehow managed to unhook one of the locking pins from the FEL bucket. It took some interesting jockying to get the arm lined back up with the pin. Probably due to my lack of experience.

Sure glad I got the larger unit as 10 more acres next to me just came on the market. I might have to consider trading the 6 ft brush cutter for a larger one.

Thanks again for everyones help
