Strong rumor says it's on the chopping block. Low sales and the new Tier IV emmisions regulations are the root cause. No replacement announced either.


I have quite a few hours in one, it's a great machine IMHO-sad to see it go. I guess Kubota will take the sales with the L39's and L45's.

Sad to hear :cray: I was a huge fan of that machine from a mechanical perspective.
I can see the lack of demand...The market for that size equipment as a whole really took a beating with the current economic downturn...
As for the emissions, that suprises me...I thought the 4TNV88 was/has at the very least an Interim Tier4 compatible version:

That engine is used in alot of applications, I'd be VERY Surpised if Yanmar doesnt make it full fledged Tier 4.

This might be a good option if you don't want orange (I hear the L39 is history also BTW)

I really like mine and have been busy riding it the last few days. The 110 is a very capable compact tractor that doesn't seem to get the credit it deserves. AKfish pointed out something I hadn't noticed, the front axle knuckles are larger on the 110 than the 4x20 series. I went out to look and compare and found this to be true.

I think the cost is over the budget that most people would spend on a compact and construction industries are having a hard time which is obvious so I would assert that Deere sales of the 110 must be slow.

Very capable little tractor though heres pictures of my latest job at home. Moved about 240 yards of fill with the fel to build my pad for the new shop building.

I think you might be onto something...But overall I dont think the cost inst TOO out of line. Its not that much more expensive then a similar 4x20 decked out... I think I've said this before but From a Spec & feature point I WANTED the 110, when shopping I test drove one and loved it...but just couldnt get over the very utilatarian/sparse operator station, No cab, and I couldnt get it less the hoe, not being green didnt help either, but that coulda been fixed.

Figures, I bought mine last July. Only have about 70 hours on it, but I love it so far. It seemed like it was a superior unit compared to other colors.

No worries, it will be around a for LONG time...and JD will support it as well far many years to come as well.

The whole compact TLB concept is gone, gone? Or just the current 110 version? There were many things that I liked about them. They just seemed more polished than the Kubota in some ways.

As an aside, I'd love to see a major manufacturer come up with a replacement for the industrial tractor loaders like the Deere 401, or the numerous Ford versions.

It is just a guess, but I suspect the whole compact TLB concept is gone-at least until the country/economy improves.

110 tlb

There will be no replacement for the 110.
Deere is now out of this market segment.

I realize this is an old thread... And it's been hashed and kicked around on other forum's; but it's fairly astounding to me that Deere is willing to cede that particular market niche to Kubota or Yanmar or Cub or whomever...

The loss of market share in the smaller construction tractor and TLB niche could well erode the market share for compact utility tractors as well. Seems to me that many potential buyers considering a compact tractor or a utility tractor or a construction tractor might be even less inclined to give JD more than a 2nd glance.

If compact tractor buyers had a real idea of the differences between the design strength and functional reliability of the 110 loader and hoe versus the 4x20 loader and hoe offerings -- well, there'd be more buyers out there wanting to swap the loader and hoe mounts on their 4000 series machines for carbon copies of the 110 implements mounted onto their plush cab models - IMO!

Now, if Deere should ever decide to reconfigure/redesign the loaders and backhoes offered on the 4000 series along the lines of the 110.... well, there wouldn't be many folk's even looking sideways at a L48 or M59! :lol:

Just to add a interesting note to this topc. Although Deere said the 110 would be discontinued at years end. They have already stopped production. A dealer I spoke with yesterday said there are 22 left new at the factory and what ever is on dealers lots.

I still can't believe Deere is leaving this market segment. It seems they can't get away fast enough either. This announcement may have sparked alot of buyer to pick one up before it's too late. But now buyer may not even be able to get the options they want or need.

Thanks for the update Matt, it is a real shame to see such a good machine discontinued.

It is definitely a shame, the 110 was a very good reliable machine.

Yep... it really is! Aside from my "chirpy" front steering cylinder (had since new) the tractor has not ever had a hiccup in over 830 hours now.

No leaks, no runs, no errors.

As Ak and other know I've been pondering a 110 for a long time. I've completed 75% of the work at my current property and really a 110 would be too large at this point. But I've been looking hard at buying hunting property(with this economy there are super deals) and a 110 would be a no brainer for me. It's a bit ironic since the bad economy hindered selling my 3320 to step up to the 110. I really feel the 110 is in between a l45 and M59, both are not what I'm looking for, both for different reasons. I have a feeling Deere will be back in this market once the economy turns. I doubt they'll want to leave all the profits to Kubota. Time will tell I guess. I can always pick up a lightly used 110 if the right deal presents itself.
