    “Drive Green” Event Pricing 1025R

    Hi all,

    I have been looking at 1025R (in general) for a while now but figured I’d wait to really be interested until end of October/start of November to start shopping - figuring dealers would be willing to move more on price at that time...

    HOWEVER, a local dealer network is offering special “Drive Green” pricing for 1025R with 120R FEL and 60D MMM for $15,500.

    A few questions...
    1) Is this a John Deere sponsored discount or something the dealer network is offering independently of Deere?

    2) Are good negotiators commonly able to work a dealer down to this type of pricing (for previously mentioned package)? Or maybe this is a rare great deal?

    3) When is the best time of year to buy a 1025R...in other words, when is mother Deere subsidizing the biggest discounts and when are the dealers most willing to move on pricing?

    4) Best price anyone has paid for a new 1025R with 120R loader and 60D mower?

    Thanks in advance for your comments!!!

    I’m new here and obviously posted this in the wrong section. How do I move the post into a more relevant section?

    A moderator should be along shortly to move this for you.
    It sounds like a pretty good price to me, about all you can do is shop Deere dealers in a radius around you that you are willing to drive to or they are willing to deliver to.
    You would be surprised how far some will deliver.
    After shopping hard I finally found a dealer who gave me a far better price than the ones close to me, almost two hours away.
    Sorted out most particulars on the phone, drove out to seal the deal.

    I bought mine in November 18, but took 17% off 1025r, loader, mower, and front blower. They will try to sell you on Deere insurance if you finance it BUT check with your homeowners insurance. Mine already covered it. I would think most do.

    Just bought mine a few weeks ago and I'll tell you that's a great deal! Maybe I should have waited a bit. But, then again I wouldn't have it right now.

    A few questions...
    1) Is this a John Deere sponsored discount or something the dealer network is offering independently of Deere?
    The Drive Green events and any "special promotions" associated with them are done by the local dealers. Deere only helps with with promotional materials. Different dealer host their Drive Green events at different times of the year. The dealer I use has their's in March. Another local dealer is hosting their's next month.

    2) Are good negotiators commonly able to work a dealer down to this type of pricing (for previously mentioned package)? Or maybe this is a rare great deal?
    That's something that is dealer dependent. Some will let you haggle, some won't.

    3) When is the best time of year to buy a 1025R...in other words, when is mother Deere subsidizing the biggest discounts and when are the dealers most willing to move on pricing?
    I'm not sure there is a "best time of year". There are a number of factors that play into whether or not you can get a "deal" or not. Deere Corporate only plays a small part in that.

    4) Best price anyone has paid for a new 1025R with 120R loader and 60D mower?
    I can't answer that but I can look at numbers and lay this out for you:

    The full MSRP price on that setup is a minimum of $20,800 according toe Deere's "Build Your Own" site.
    Deere is currently offering a 0% for 60 months + $800 off on the 1-series machines.
    So after Deere Corporate is done you'd be looking right at $20K for that setup.

    Your dealer is offering $4,500 off of that price. That's a 22.5% discount. I think most people would agree that it doesn't get much better than that. 10% discounts are fairly common. A few people get 15%-18% discounts. But 22.5%? Those are pretty uncommon.

    Check those policies closely. The policy Deere sells is like mortgage insurance on your house. It pays off the loan on your tractor/implements but it isn't like a homeowner's policy.

    For most of us, a homeowner's policy will cover things like if your tractor is parked in the garage and the garage catches fire or a tree falls on it during a storm. But if you drive your tractor into a pond,it catches fire while you are out using it or you total it while off your property, a homeowner's policy won't usually cover anything. The Deere policy doesn't care about any of that stuff. Plus, it's cheap. There are several threads discussing the pros/cons of that insurance on here (as well as extended warranty plans!)

    That’s a killer deal! You can almost get a free 260 on the back for the regular price of tractor/60D/120R. Make sure it’s all the latest equipment
