    I've found that a little boy (aka our son) can help plot and is much more effective then just me plotting. He is now telling his mom we need a 630.

    This site has several times made me ponder the thought of "maybe I should have purchased a new tractor" rather than used. It has been awhile since I have used Deere.com to build a tractor but after reading this thread I decided to see what I would be looking at if the itch for a new tractor continued. Now that I have done so, the "build your own" was the Benadryl I needed to sooth the itch. I did not go all out by any means, I went through the options and choose only those that I have on the 3520 and the few that I don't but wished I did. A 3046R Cab, R1 tires, H165 fel, pto options, hydraulic options, and few other add on's came with a MSRP of $47,854.71. The itch is cured!

The "Hey, look at me...I'm driving a John Deere" feeling has passed, along with the hood; and I get the distinct feeling that my neighbors are not as jealous as they once were...even if they mow with MTD's and Huskys.
    Let's see how jealous your neighbors are once their production tin stamped models get to 1200 hours of run time.

    Have absolutely no desire to own a new tractor. Been cruising all the classifieds for several months and have seen some spectacular deals.
    Tractors with 6, 12, 20 hrs etc. Many of those owners moved up to something bigger, or smaller, or newer. Don't expect to see them in this thread! Zero percent sucked them in!

    Then many "bought this tractor to do this project, project done, time to sell".
    Or someone selling a low hour tractor, garage kept, absolutely pristine, due to a death
    Or virtually new JD on a Kubota lot and vice versa. Traded in.
    But best was "Love my tractor more than my wife!...Divorce forces sale" .

    I'm happy with the low hour trade in's

    I'm a low hour bottom feeder I guess

    But, having a used tractor means it's ok if some paint came off, or a small oil drip exists, or a branch scratched the loader arm...etc. Stuff that would send me off the edge with a brand new one!

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.

    I admittedly took advantage of the "divorce forces sale" on my tractor. 60ish hours with factory stickers still on the bucket and back window of cab. Same goes for my boat and various other items.

    Just my luck. This thread starts right after I get mine. Well it's a full month old so hopefully I can hang out here.

    I still have the old ones if that helps

    It doesn't help at all that Deere did such a darn good job with the new 2 series... But I'm double screwed, I would have to also buy the land to go along with the 5 series I really want.
