    Sudden listings of 1025Rs on local CL

    Lately I have viewed more 1025s on CL than I thought possible. Low hour machines fro 200 to 465. Most were in the range of 14k depending on attachments. Many have the mmm and choices of loaders, snow blowers, broom or combinations. We tend to see more X series or 30+ hp tractors occasionally listed. Some say they want larger frame tractors . Others just not enough storage / usage to keep. It sounds like the dealer isn't offering high value trade options.
    Mean while my 2004 4110 is working well with no need to update. Did my size requirement for small tasks and have a large model for the large maintenance. I believe sometimes the flashy design style and sales talk influence the final decision. Now I have to quite looking at the ads getting ideas.

    4110 is a nice machine. My son in law had a 455 and got a 4110. The thing I like the least about the 4110 is the mid mount mover removal. Other than that great machine.

    Well, the dealer can’t offer retail prices on trades since he needs to make a profit. If looking for a used tractor offer just north of what the dealers offer and maybe you can make a purchase. But understand new buyers also get warranty and JD backing for what ever time it is. Used stuff you are pretty much on your own. Are not most used stuff as is?

    I agree with Kenny. I upgraded but plan on keeping my 1025. Might sell the H120 loader but I plan on keeping the tractor and snow plow.

    The dealers I have spoken with talk about how quiet things are this time of year in the Lawn and Garden and SCUT / CUT market.

    Perception is everything. Remember this started with the comment that Agent Blue was "viewing more 1 series for sale on Craigslist than he thought possible." What did he think was possible? So, how much of an increase is it really? After all his location is "Earth" and that's a big place......

    Traditionally, Christmas through about Saint Patrick's day (March 17th this year).....are slow times for SCUT and CUT and lawn and garden sales. Ag stuff is different because the AG guys need to be ready to get busy in late March and early April where the homeowners and those using the SCUT's are likely waiting for the weather to break as they need far less lead time.

    It could also be people downsizing properties, or hiring lawn services due to changes often outside of their control (health, etc), it could be people looking to mow with a zero turn (if you want maximum efficiency in mowing, it's clearly the zero turn). It could be a massive filing of divorces causing sales because the couples are fighting over who won "Dancing with the Stars" or maybe the Super Bowl upset was more than their relationship could take......

    It could be a lot of things or it could be nothing. It could be reality, or simply a perception. I am inclined to place it more in the "coincidence" of ads and his noticing them than it is a run to sell 1 series and suddenly trade up......

    Just like today's equity markets, specifically the Dow today down nearly 1,600 points. Is the massive drop a panic or an opportunity? It all depends on your perspective. For me, It's the opportunity I have been waiting for.................

    There are few factors. First, I think the 1-series is JDs biggest success with residential customers since the 318. They are selling tons of them, which means more in the used market.

    Another factor is the incredibly appealing value of the 3025, not a lot more expensive for a 3 series sized tractor, even though it is less versatile.

    Judging by the number of 3025e posts on the LCUT forum, I imagine that is a factor. I just traded in for a 3 series. My dealer says they can't keep them on the lot. Case in point, we went to our Ag Expo one Saturday, and the dealer's local location had 3 3025e's. I went back the following Friday and they were all sold.
