    New 2038R coming.

    Whelp, tomorrow I'll be placing a deposit on a 2019 2038R equipped as follows;

    - 220R loader with 57" HD bucket.
    - Dual rear selective outlets.
    - Power beyond.
    - Premium LED light kit.
    - iMatch.
    - R3 radial tires.


    In deciding on the 2038R, I tried JD 2032R, 2025R, 3033R, 3039R; Kubota B3350, L3301, L3560. I think the new large frame 2 series are great all around tractors for the type of property I'm trying to acquire.

    Am I buying too small again? I don't know, I hope not. I don't think so. This time, I walked the entire property that I'm buying making note of the work I want to do, took measurements of my facilities, and considered the attachments that I need and came to the conclusion that this tractor will serve those needs well.

    I received nearly a 20% discount when buying my 1025R, so I didn't have to eat as much money as I thought I would, and I think I got value out of that money with the projects that I accomplished with the 1025R. I have a great local buyer for my 1025R.


    On this tractor, I'm receiving 15.5% off which I consider a good deal.


    I have one question. I was planning on having the tires filled with rim guard based on the assumption that the loader manual would call for fluid filled tires + some rear ballast, like on my 1025R. However, I'm looking at the manual right now and for 2017+ 2032/2038Rs, it's only calling for 811 pounds hitch ballast. In contrast, the 2016 and older calls for fluid filled tires + hitch ballast. Since they went to a larger frame, I suppose it's possible that fluid filled tires aren't necessary.

    Can anyone confirm what I'm seeing? I'll attach a photo.

    Thanks!

    It does say Minimum rear hitch ballast. So I would interpret that as if you were moving mulch or other lightweight material. More ballast would be needed for heavier task's.

    Congrats. Get the tires filled!! Thereís no disadvantage that I can think of. Only advantages. My dealer filled mine for free. Iíd mention it when you make your deposit tomorrow. I bet they will throw that in for free for a machine as nice as that one. Donít know about your terrain but I looked hard at the large frame 2 series because I wanted the extra width esp with the spacers available. Think it makes it 60 inches wide. Perfect for 5 ft implements. Finances helped me decide on the 2025R that I am happy with, but a 2038R I think is the Goldilocks of compact tractors atleast for me anyways. Lol. Congrats again. Take lots of pics.

    THanks!

    I have some flat terrain, but also some undulating terrain, and the 3 acres of woods I'm buying are on a hill. I think the 2038R is 60" stock, so the spacers should bring it to about 64.5".

    Goldilocks is a good term, that's why I kept coming back to it.

    The manual says 59.8 maximum with the spacers so I think itís closer to 55 wide stock. Of course thereís always half dozen different specs printed on each model. You would have to measure at the dealer to know for sure. Click image for larger version.†

    Congrats on the new tractor. I can't help with fluid filled tires, but I can tell you I've maxed out the loader with about 800lbs in the rear (ballast box with stones) and didn't have any issues, and the rear never felt light. I've had over a 1000lbs in that ballast box (full box plus eight 42lb suitcase weights), which I would use for sustained loader work lifting maximum capacity so as not to stress the front axle. With that much weight in the rear, I see no need for fluid filled tires, but I do see disadvantages. These tractors already slow down going uphill (yes, both the 32 and the 38, to about the same degree as far as I could tell, though I'm sure the 38 slows down less). Carrying around that much extra weight would just exacerbate the problem. Additionally, while I try to keep this machine off of my lawns, it does occasionally need to go over grass, and as much as damage as it does now, I can only imagine it would be worse with filled tires.
