I currently have an almost 20 year old JD4600. I bought it used with 125 hours on it. It now has 625. When I bought it, I told myself (and the wife) that this tractor would last me the rest of my life...Well, I got old. Sitting out in the hot sun mowing or in the -10 temps blowing snow back in my face, just isn't the same now that I turned 50 So now I want a cab with heat and AC
It looks like, similar to other recent JD model lines, the 4066R has gone through a recent refresh. I see 2017 and older with the H180 loader and 2018+ with the 440R loader. Was 2018 a refresh year?
Anything in particular wrong with the 4066R that I should be careful about? There seem to be a number of them used with under 200 hours for about 10 grand less than normal selling price. I supposed with JD selling new ones for 0% APR, it's hard to sell a used one.
The 4052R used seems to be selling for the same price as the 4066R used. Any reason to look at the 4052R?
Most of my implements are rated at under 35-40HP PTO shaft. Will I cause them any long term harm using them on a bigger machine? I assume as long as my clutches are in working order, I should be OK?
Looking at: 4066R, full cab, radio, 3rd,4th,5th SCV, Loader, R4 tires.
Uses: Mowing with 3pt brush cutter, moving dirt, moving stuff around with palette forks, 3pt snow blower in the winter.
