    Starting my hunt for a 4066R

    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.

    You are off to a good start. 4066R comes with the deluxe cab and includes such things as the air ride seat. You will want mirrors for both sides. Front and rear wipers. Maybe a radio. Hyd top link. For the 3rd SCV, get lines to both the front and rear. iMatch. Ballast box with extensions. You will have more lifting power and need ballast.

    Go big or go home. Get the 4066R and forget the smaller HP 4 series. You can never have too much HP.

    One more thing and maybe more as I think of them. Consider the vertical exhaust. I have it and like it just fine. You can see it in this video 4066R hill pulling - YouTube

    Yep, it WAS running hot for some time. Recently I decided to tackle that after finding out from another post that I could take off the front grill. Well, that allowed me to see where the problem was. I estimate that the front of the radiator was at least 1/3rd blocked. After cleaning that out, it no longer runs hot. My A/C even works better. This blockage was not noticeable until I removed the grill. I have another post showing some of this.

    The real question is: do you need or want the aerator and tiller? No more than $40,000 without them. You will really like the SSQA loader connectors.

    Don't need the aerator. The tiller is nice...I have a King Kutter now, so that would be sold.

    This one is 5 hrs away, so maybe not that great of a deal...

    Is the air ride seat std equipment with the cab models? Some advertise it, some don't.

    Also, I see some advertising front suspension. Is that std equip?

    Interesting the number of these for sale under 100 hours, taking a 8 grand or so hit on depreciation in only a year?

    Those may be off lease. Air ride seat is standard on 4066R. The only front suspension i am aware of is the optional loader suspension.
