Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum. I have just been reading and have seen several references to "new tractor finally arrived" but I don't know what that means. I ordered a 3720 cabbed unit on October 18th. What is a resonable time for this to be delivered? Dealer says it should arrive about November 23rd yet as I look around the internet it looks like many folks have waited a couple of months for delivery. At any rate I would appreciate hearing what your wait time was!

Welcome to Green Tractor Talk!

I have heard of guys getting their tractor in a month and some in 3 months. I was the latter. I ordered in late May and the tractor came in September.

What type of tractor or model did you order?

I am not up on where the 3720 is made anymore. I can only guess that it also got moved to Mexico? I hate to say it, but I have to guess that it might take from 2 to 3 months. My warehouse date got moved 4 times. I can only hope that I had very bad luck and yours will come in soon!

What did you order in the cab? Air seat? Work lights? I think you can get th deluxe cab in the 3x20 series still correct?

You will love that tractor and it will be worth the wait!

Here is a link to a pic of my old 3720. I had an open station 3720 and this cabbed model. Very nice series!

Here is an update on my tractor delivery. Dealer called yesterday and said he had heard from John Deere and the tractor won't arrive until April 5, 2011. Deere claims high demand plus retooling at factory has things delayed. Wow, I don't think I have every waited half a year for anything I ordered. To say I am disappointed is an understatment! :thumbsdown:

WOW! that is a long time. Sometimes timing is everything. Who knows maybe it really won't take that long. My folks ordered a Pontiac Grand Prix back in 70 just as the plant went on strike. It took six months for that car to arrive.

What are you guys ordering that causes this? I guess it just makes me wonder whats going on? I know theres no shortage of 3x's Here in Maine. I drive by my dealer every day to & from work, they have at least 5 open 3x20's on the lot, and 2 Cabbed this morning. Monday when I went down to another dealer to get my generator, they have PLENTY of them as well. 2 weeks ago I drove by yet another JD dealer and they had plenty as well....Safe to say if I wanted a 3720, I could have one in my driveway by nightfall...

I guess I am in tractor country. I have never had to wait more than a week.

D.
Exactly my thought too :drinks:
I was starting to get bent out of shape when the wheelweights I wanted on the tractor took 2 weeks to get...the tractor was on the lot...but it took a week for the SSQA to arrive and the wheel weights they ordered the first time around were the 110 lbs, which dont fit the rims of the large R4's...so the correct weights arrived on the following week's truck. I woulda had my tractor in a week had it not been for that mistake...No biggie, as a gesture of good will, they installed all my accessories for free (Original deal was I was going to self install the work lights, radio kit, Wheel Weights, etc...).

Well just got another call from the dealer. John Deere has moved the date from April 5 2011 to mid February 2011. Apparently they are getting the kinks out of the supply chain for the various components. The unit I have on order is a 2011 model year 3720 with cab, not the deluxe cab. Nice to get a "good news" phone call. :thumbup1gif:

Another update from the dealer. New delivery date now projected to be January 24th. There will still be plenty of winter left here in northern Minnesota to play with the new tractor! I try not to think about the new machine but that is impossible.

Chuck, see if you can get the owners manual now. You might also want to buy the Technical Manual CD now. Then you can be all up to speed by the time the tractor comes in.

Thanks for the tip. I have read the latest owner's manual that is online. I also called the bookstore about the technical manual. The hard copy manual they sell was last updated in 2008. I didn't ask about the CD version since I would rather have a hard copy that I can take to the tractor if need be. Perhaps I should check on the CD since it maybe more up to date and I could load it on my laptop. I guess I am just too old to be comfortable with CD versions having used hard copy all my life!!!
