CFarmsInc 37279 305 4250 either
My 4250 pulling a Brent 640 wagon. I've put different rubber
on since this pic was taken. It's a sharp little tractor.I
just bought a 4255 last week to replace it so it is forsale
if anyone is interested.
Matt, not interested in buying a tractor right now, but how
much do you want for it anyway? Looks sharp.
Thanks Lance, It really is a good looking tractor, All
original paint too. It's only got 3600 Hours onit. If I
can't get $29,500.00 I'm just going to keep it for a chore
tractor. I looked at your album very nice pics, Lots of
excellent pic's of Red Power. I was curious where are you
I'm located in Southeastern North Carolina. A Small town
called Pembroke. Work on my uncle's farm whenever I get a
chance to. Use manily red on the farm, but we do have a
dandy JD 7210 w/loader.
As for the price of the tractor, you would be lucky to get
15-20,000 here, because we use our equipment harder down
south. But that's about as good looking a 4250 as I have
Thanks for the feed back Lance, My brother in law (an all
red man) buys alot of machinery from down south and rebuilds
and repaints it and he has no complaints, plus it's a great
way to keep machinery costs down. Many other people in my
area do this also. I know of four people who take orders up
here and make trips to the south to find equipment people
want. Take care-Matt
I definitely agree that upkeeping used machinery is a good
way to keep costs down, as long as there is good dealer
support.I like older equipment myself. I'm not a huge fan of
the newer stuff since it has all those computers.
I guess you have a really great JD dealer for all that nice
equipment you have. We have to travel about 30-40 miles to
buy parts because we have 1 dealer in our county, and that's
a JD dealer.
I remember reading in another post that you are getting an
8520 for this year. Have you took delivery of it yet? Take
Lance, I got rid of both 8410's at the end of harvest 2002
and got an 8520 with Metric 710-38's and an 8420 with
18.4-46's so we used them last fall for some heavy tillage.
I personally am not impressed they aren't that different
from the 8410's the 8520 has the ILS suspension and it's a
nice option but I'm not sure It was worth the extra money.
I will say the Active Ride seat is pretty comfy though. In
Iowa we're all getting the Itch it won't be long till we
rock'n'roll in the fields.-Matt
Thanks for the input. Did you lease those tractors? Or do
you turn them in after every season and get new ones? Just
wondering, not trying to be nosey.
I really like the 8000 and 8010 series myself. Nice handling
tractor and has a nice large cab which I like. Think we will
stick w/the Magnums for awhile. Besides the Magnum is my
favorite tractor anyway.
I bought both the 8020's. I always buy the big tractors that
I have and keep them for one or two years and put between
500-1000 hours on the the only tractors I've leased are the
7810 and the 7710 Because it's cheaper that way I keep them
three years till the lease is up and put between 1500-2000
hours on them. Up until this year I rolled both combines
over every year but Deere won't have a rollover program this
year so I'm going to keep them for probably three years,
which doesn't bother me at all It seems to me that every
year we're wasting time having John Deere put updates and
and working the bugs out of a new combine. Won't miss that
at all. FYI Both 8020's went back to the dealership this
past week for updates to be installed. What all do you and
your uncle grow down south? Take care-Matt
I agree the Magnums are an excellent machine my Dad was an
all red man except for a couple Cat tractor's he had. And my
Grandpa was an Allistractors and Massey comine man But he
always had Versatile 4wd's. Our local CaseIH dealer shutdown
though(the owner retired and no one took over) so I ended up
a Green man But I remember our magnum's very comparible if
not better than a Deere.The AC's are were a good machine
too. Keep the tires turnin'-Matt
Did JD get rid of the rollover program because of all the
used combines on the market now?
I really like the 7010 JDs. We have a 7210 and I really like
driving that tractor. Lots of 7710-7810s are used here in NC
by cotton farmers. Really good planting tractors and they do
a nice job pulling module builders and cotton buggies.
I am ready to get into the fields.:-D We would be going by
now planting tobacco, but it's been so wet here the past
month we haven't been able to get much done. To answer your
? on what we grow, we grow corn, wheat, soybeans, soem
cotton, tobacco, hay, and also have a few beef cattle. Most
guys grow cotton here in NC. And of course lots of tobacco.
Lance, My Deere rep told me that it was because they're
getting to many used combines on the market.
Ok, I thought that was the reason. Thanks for the answer.
