    2305 to a 2025r

    Would there be much be much benefit to making the jump? 0% for 60 months make the payments look nice. Would I gain that much ground clearance. I'll probably have 375 hours in my tractor by the end if the summer.

    Yes, you would gain a lot of ground clearance, as well as:

    -Better, faster hydraulics
    -A real tranny cooler
    -Position control on the 3PH
    -More lift capacity
    -Split steering brakes

    Probably more...

    What's the plan for the 2025r?
    What type of work do you do with the 2305 now?
    Big difference in tractors.

    A few years ago, I made a similar trade. I upgraded from a 2210 to a 2320. I never regretted making the upgrade. The 2025R will be a huge improvement over the 2305 for all of the reasons Kenny stated.

    Depends on what you do with the tractor. I don't think you gaining much if any PTO HP. If I was to move up in size it would be to the 3520 or 3720.

    You'll also gain a little better ride from the larger tires. Oh, and you'll gain a bunch of new emissions stuff....

    Down side is while it is a great tractor, you'll probably loose $ on the 2305. The 1 series killed the value of the little 2 series.

    There's no real extra emissions stuff on the new current 2 series that I'm aware of. You have to get into the new 3Rs for that stuff.
