I have been lurking here a couple years and recently joined to ask a couple questions. Today we finalized our order for a new JD 2038R with all the goodies. MSL loader, Backhoe, 72D mower, front mount snowblower, etc. We were a little taken aback by the total price, but the ability to get everything financed at once for 0% APR made it worth spending a bit more up front. We are Farm Bureau members and that qualified us for a small additional discount, and "platinum 1" status in JD rewards. Not sure if that is really much benefit, but every little bit helps. We have a 40 acre property in rural Iowa, aboult half of which is rented out to a real farmer for crop ground. The rest is a mix of timber and turf. The 2020 Derecho illistrated how difficult it is to deal with a property of this size without any sort of tractor. We cleared dozend of downed trees with nothing but a pickup truck and chainsaw and lots of hard work. We still have MANY trees to clean up and I am looking forward to having some better tools to do the job.

Welcome from Des Moines Iowa. You pretty much bought my dream machine. I'm sure you'll love it. I'm curious...what did they tell you for delivery timeframes?

Welcome from Illinois. Quad-Cities area. We were also hit by the Derecho and the tractor and Grapple made 7 trees turn into firewood and quickly dissappear. We live near a state park and set alot of firewood along the road and it was gone. Enjoy your 2038 you picked a great tractor.
