    If you look, there are large numbers of pretty much every model up for sale with low hours. In my area there are a ton of low-hour 1025Rs up for sale.

    I haven't seen a whole lot of complaints or issues with the 5Es.

    There are probably dozens of possible reasons but 2 I can think of off the top of my head:

    It might be that people may have bought them and then decided it wasn't the right fit so they traded them in for something smaller or larger.

    It could also be that they were leased and returned after the lease period. Deere was really pushing leasing to small businesses 2 or 3 years ago.

    I would probably agree with the lease theory, but also, with the introduction of the new 5R's last year maybe some are simply trading up. Just a thought

    Yes on the R series but for me I traded my 2032R for a 4105 (straight trade) and I don't miss any R features...

    I agree with the others also, and with my own trading up from a 5085E to a 5115R, After using my 5085E doing more work other than plowing snow and mowing i wanted more features on the R. I liked my 5085 and I could still be using it and it would be doing a good job. I just wanted to upgrade to the R. I plan on trading mine in 4-5 years.

    The boat I am in is I want more HP, my 4105 does all I need, but 65 to 75 HP could get me into a bigger Bush hog, most of my work is bush hogging...


    If I could get a better seat on my 4105 I might just stick with it LOL

    Not owned or heard much about them but the 5045E through 5075E were made in India. Just in case that matters.

    I bought a used 2011-2012 5093e with about 6200hrs on it and I've put on about another 400hrs. I spent several days dealing with freeing up turnbuckles, three point hitch parts, lubrication, minor electrical, seat & linkage problems as a result of poor maintenance but no evidence of manufacturer defects. This tractor came out of Florida and by the math/hours it was used pretty much 8 hours/day for about 4 to 5 years from the manufacture date. I am on the site today looking for air conditioning recharge recommendations and hope that all I need is 134r but we'll see. I'd give my experience a solid 7-8/10 but I really do not know what happened or was replaced during the first 6K hours. That's all I got. If I had the money I'd would go with the M but I' don't and this tractor worked within my budget and the work load is light; road grooming and rotary cutting running mostly in "E" mode. Hope this helps.
