    Looking to buy a 2019 2038R

    I'm planning to order a 2038R. None of the dealers within 4 hours has one in stock. Are there any options that I should order for it? When I say options, I'm talking about accessories, options, etc., not implements.

    Also, what type of emissions does the 2038R have on it? I assume there isn't DEF, right?

    No DEF needed. But it does have a DPF. It's a little too early to see if any of the new 2 series with DPF's are going to be problematic but with DPF's being widely used in machinery I doubt it will be an issue.(Fingers Crossed).

    For options I would definitely get the dual rear scv's for at least a hydraulic top link, and a side link if needed. Also get an I-Match rear 3point hitch. Makes hooking up with implements a breeze. Single point loader hydraulic hook up would be a good option if you plan on taking on/off the loader frequently, but if not it's a pricey addition. I love my R3+ Radial tires but tires are dependent on what you'll be doing with the tractor.

    I have a 2032R. When we bought, we thought we would never use the mid mount mower, now we are going back for that. I also wish I had rear hydraulics for a top and tilt kit, I will most likely be going back for that as well, at minimum to run a hydraulic top link.

    Good info, thank you!

    I've never had a tractor before, so some of this stuff is over my head. I would need a SCV to run a log splitter and post hole digger, right? Does each SCV have two hose connections?

    That's on my list.

    Oh, okay... I thought that came standard with the new 2038R

    Yes, those were added to my list. I saw the R3 Radials on a YouTube video and really liked the hybrid tread design which should work well for my property and usage.

    Here are other options that I came across:

    Air-Ride Seat Suspension
    LED Lights
    Heavy Duty Bucket
    Light Guards
    Hood Guard
    Block Heater

    I wouldn't recommend using the rear scv's to run a log splitter. It would be painfully slow. These tractors don't have enough flow to efficiently run one. People have done it...just make sure your patience is high enough to tolerate it.

    Most people use the PTO for post hole digging. Only bad thing is if the auger gets stuck, there is no reverse on the PTO. You'll have to turn it out by hand with a pipe wrench.

    The loader comes standard with 4 hydraulic quick connects. An option is the single point quick connect. It connects/disconnects all 4 with the throw of a lever.

    I think the air ride is only available in Europe and the brush/hood guard comes standard with the loader

    We have property at 7,000' feet in northern New Mexico. Since it's undeveloped property, we mow it once per year with a John Deere riding mower (like the one you get from Home Depot). Needless to say, it takes a few days to mow 10 aces with a small 48" deck. I will certainly make sure the tractor is equipped for a mid mount mower for future use. For now, we only want to spend enough money for the tractor and frontend loader. Eventually, I want the backhoe and mid mount mower.

    When you say rear hydraulics, you're talking about adding the Selective Control Valves, right?

    Good to know. What do you use your SCVs for?

    Yeah, I was talking about using a post hole digger with the downforce hydraulics.

    Okay, that's good to know. I thought that was the new standard feature. I'll definitely add that to the list.

    I've seen people add the air-ride to their tractors after the fact, but I can't say that I know anyone who ordered it from the factory. I guess I will find out. I'm going to the dealer next weekend to look at the options and price out a tractor.

    That's good to know. I want to keep the tractor at or below $30,000.

    I use one set for my hydraulic top link. The other set I'll eventually use for a hydraulic lift cylinder on my sickle bar.

    The rear 3 point has no down force capability. Only lift.
