    2015 vs 2017 1025r Advice Please

    I've been lurking here for awhile and you guys always provide great advice.

    Here's my predicament. I was really close to purchasing a 2017 1025r with H120 loader and 60D MMM. The dealer (a very large one in the NW) just called me and said they made a mistake and have a 2015 with 2 hours on it that will be sold with the full new warranty and all 2017 attachments for $700 less than the 2017.

    From what I can tell, the 1025r's had a minor facelift in 2016 with new headlights, changes to the way the glow plugs work helping cold starts, and a new fuel cap and chain (2017).

    Two questions:
    Am I missing anything as far as changes?
    What would you do?

    I'm pretty torn. The $700 is a nice discount but this tractor has been outside on a lot for two years in the rain and hot sun. I tend to really appreciate (baby) my stuff and it will always been garage kept.

    Thoughts?

    Five years from now the sitting outside for two years in the sun and the rain will bug you more than not having the $700.00. The same would be true probably six months from now.

    Don't get the new one. But don't settle for 700 dollars off either. My dealer knocked 3000 off of my 2017 for some sort of "customer appreciation discount" or some other BS.

    You go in there and tell those @#@#@#$, "Listen here. You want that 2015 off your lot, right? You will give it to me for $4,000 less than what I was about to pay for the 2017, and you will like it. Otherwise it will rot here until you sell it for $20 and a vial of crack cocaine."

    I am originally from the NW, just how much sun has it actually seen?

    I would be more concerned about corrosion than faded paint. I would check the seat out and anything else susceptible to an easy death from the elements and then see what he will really knock off the price. There isn't a lot of margin on these tractors so you probably won't get a whole lot off but it's worth dickering with him. The fact the dealer is lowering the price tells me they are motivated to move it.

    For $700 go for the new one, if for no other reason easier starting when it is cold outside. Hadn't heard Mother Deere had finally listened to the complaints of the owners of the series 1.

    If dealer would sell it $2-4000 less , have a engine heater installed before taking it home.

    Sitting unused for two years isn't great for any engine thus $700 difference is chump change. Agree with what everyone else has been saying - go with the new one.

    There was a gas shock hood lift change, and a heavier duty swivel seat on newer tractors. Swivel seat may only be on TLB models not sure.
