I have 9ac., 3ac wooded, 1ac pasture, 5ac finish mowed, plan on light loader work, post hole digger(16in.)to plant shrubs etc. I've narrowed it down to a JD4200 hydro., loader, 72in. belly mower, and a post hole digger. I feel this combination will handle all I need. I have an option on 14ac. more of pasture land, if I purchace it will the JD4200 be enough to maintain it? I have no plans to do any serious farming, just maintaining. Price within reason not an issue, please no color bashing.

First, I agree with "sc" - whatever you decide to do, make sure to test drive before you finalize your purchase. That said, if you decide to go the JD route, have you considered the JD4300? Consider the following:

1) The 4200 (hydro, dscv, mfwd, tall rops, turf tires) with the 72" belly mower, 420 loader and post hole digger is probably going to set you back $22-23K. I'll assume $23K for illustration.

2) The 4300 with same configuration will cost you about $1,200 more. That's about 5.2% more than the 4200.

3) The 4300 is rated at about 25.5 pto horsepower vs. 20 pto horsepower for the 4200. That's about 25% more pto hp for about 5% more money. Stated another way, if you go the 4200 route, you are paying about $1150/pto hp ($23,000 / 20). If you go the 4300 route, you are paying about $950/pto hp ($24,200 / 25.5).

4) If you plan to mow damp/wet grass, the additional 5 pto hp will make a difference (particularly on a 72" deck).

5) If you decide to purchase the additional 14 acres, the 4300 might be a better way to go.

Just some food for thought. Happy tractoring… Smile )

p.s. If you get the belly mower, make sure the tractor includes a 3rd selective control valve.

Take a test drive! You might want to test drive agear model. I just went through a purchase of a 4100 and was leaning towards hydro, until I drove a gear. The new gear tractors are extremely easy to drive and shift, plus if I recall the hydro pedals are on the right, along with the dif lock, which makes it hard to use both. Just some food for thought. By the way, the 4100 I got was the gear model and I have no regrets.

The 4000 series is not enough tractor for what youare using it for. You can find a good used 5000 series for less money and it will do 5 times the work.You need at least 40 horses and 50 wouldn't hurt.The 4000 series is little more than a big lawn mower.

Based on your stated requirements (5 acres of finish mowing, LIGHT loader work, planting shrubs, etc.), I cannot imagine using a 5000 series tractor (regardless of whether you can find one used for less than the 4000 you are currently considering...)!!! For starters, they're too damn heavy (4,500 - 6,000+ lbs.) and difficult to manuever for finish mowing. Also, you don't need 40 - 50 pto horespower to do the types of work you described in your original post. In the event you do consider a 5000 series, you definitely want to follow the advice "sc" gave you in an earlier post and "try before you buy". Unless your related to Tim Allen, stick with a compact - you'll be much happier. Good luck Smile)

I'm about to buy a tractor for our ranch. I'll be doing a fair amount of loading and scraping as well as tilling, discing and post hole digging. I've looked at the NH2120 and the K3600/4200. I can get a lot more HP for the money with a Landini 5860 or 7860. Does anyone have any experience with the Landini they'd like to pass on.

If you purchase the 14 ac pasture you'll kick yourself for buying the lawn mower. It will not pick up a round bale of hay, not to mention running your Binford 6000 bushhog. I know a lot of people who mow with a 40+ horse tractor. If you stick with 5 acres get a lawn mower; if you buy the additional acres, get a real tractor. Make that decision first.
