Well I bought a burnt up 3930 New Holland a few years back it would run and move but needed cosmetics and tires. Installed new tires and a seat never went any further. So came across a trade in at work the other day and couldn't pass it up. I'd say upgrade. 😃

Yeah it's a 3025E which is hydrostatic. The 3025D is gear (no reverser). Sold the New Holland for 4k. Deere is a 2018 but sub "25" HP so no emissions. I'll tweak system relief on hydraulics and should be plenty of tractor for me.

New Holland only had 500 hours. Strong tractor and ran/drove flawlessly. 3 pack of gauges, rewire alternator, and a starter button good to go. Just got a steal on the JD.. guess work does have it's perks.

How many pretty pennies did the JD cost you?

I've been looking for a compact tractor with a loader recently, but prices here are pretty high. Like, nearly new price for 20 year old Kubota. For another 3/4K you could get a brand new one with a 0 APR note from the dealer.


Tools don't seems to depreciate nearly as fast a toys.....

Haha well I work for a large Deere dealer. It has 1400 hours (highest I’ve seen on a compact like that) but runs flawlessly. Original owner hit something busted front axle insurance claim didn’t want to wait so traded it. I picked it up at cost we had in it. $8k….. :) plus $1k in parts they had ordered grill etc that was busted up. Added the box blade and a quick hitch in the deal. Just over 10 out the door. About 23-25 new

I paid $500 for new Holland, insurance deal as well. Bought a seat and 2 or 3 tires.

That's why I bought new, the used ones are so ridiculously priced right now, just like vehicles, so I just bought a new tractor about 8 months ago instead, and took advantage of the 0%/60mo...will have it paid off about this time next year. The only issue with buying new now is its hit and miss on availability on not only the tractor but implements/attachments as well...its going on 9 months since the dealer delivered my tractor and I still haven't got the mower for it.

Just wish I would have listened to myself instead of the salesman and got the rear remotes and the 3rd function installed as I could have been using the rear remotes, and could have picked up a grapple. If you buy a new tractor get all you can on it while its at the dealer being prepped, afterwards you get to pay the $100+ an hour labor to have the tractor brought back in later and have that stuff added.

I figured for the price on a used one, I'd rather have a new one with 0 hours on it and know exactly what's been done to it, used stuff is pretty hit and miss, who knows what was done to it or with it, and who knows how well or if it was maintained properly. Stuff like this I'd rather have new, and have the factory warranty with it too.

@wildbill23c man order the kits yourself and instal they really aren’t that big of a deal. A W. R. Long 3rd function removes a hydraulic line and fitting, installs 2 hoses to valve and 2 hoses through loader frame and get a fuse saver for power. Weld the tab on the front and repaint. 2-3 hours tops. I’ve put dozens on. Rear remotes are pretty much same practice.
