I'm looking to purchase my first SCUT and have decided on the JD 1025R FILB. I have received several quotes from local and neighboring state dealers and they all list the 0283LV (MY13) in the quotes. When I build my own on the JD site, it has the option of the 0286LV 2015 model and the 0283LV 2013 model. I cannot find any information of the model variations. Are there significant differences? Should I insist on one over the other? The 2013 VIN seems to indicate a 2015 build date. I'm just confused on the models.

The best quote (pre-tax) is $22,100 for the 0283LV. This includes: 1025R (2013 Model Year) with backhoe and quick connect loader, 53" quick connect bucket, LED Work Light Kit @ $19,446; 60" mower deck with auto coupler @ $2,180; 5' rear blade @ $474. The price includes delivery and the $750 implement discount. Total out the door is $23,647.

Looking at the price, it is around 15% under list which reading here is okay. If I get the 2013 model year, should it be discounted even more?

I appreciate any input on this. Thanks!

Thanks fordguy. Since you mentioned serial number breaks, the serial number on the tractor is in the 319xxx range. I see on the mower deck, there is different mounting hardware for tractors w/ a serial break @ 324500. Being the quoted tractor is before that break, any advantage of making sure the tractor purchased is after the break? Any other significant serial breaks on this model?
