Look on CL farm and garden with "cab" as your search word?

Default I've got an old 870 JD

and the clutch has been an issue every since we've had it. If it rains - the clutch is stuck to the flywheel unless you tied it down before it rained. Pain in the keester. It finally got so stuck I took it in to get the clutch replaced. They wanted $2300 - for the parts only - another 2K to replace it. This is at the JD place on Hwy 78 near Grayson. They were all about selling me a new tractor and trading in my old one - I told them if I ever buy another tractor it for sure won't be a JD if clutches are that expensive.

We've had a Kubota 3130 for about the same amount of time as the JD - never a minutes trouble and we don't have to baby it to keep it going. If you're wanting JD - just go buy a Mahindra - probably a better tractor anyway and they don't try to rip you off with parts.

I agree w the Massey. Really tough tractors. I’ve got a 431 all my buddies that have operated it fell in love with it. I sold an old 165 Massey to another buddy and it runs and operates really well it’s and oldie. No telling how many hours on it. It’s been sitting for 10years out in the open with no cover whatsoever. They’re amazing tractors. I cleaned out the fuel tank changed filters and it’s good to go! I haven’t went back in the tread hope I’m not repeating myself hehe. Kubota is a very good Tractor as well I have one as well. I’ll quit I’m getting long winded. Good luck bud

Mahindra 5570 seems like a beast of a tractor for 30k. DId that include a front end loader?

that was a cash price. They have a 1.9 percent financing for 60 month, but that price is about 6800 more. They get the financing money in the price.

Mahindra builds that same size tractor as a 40hp, 55hp, and the turbo'd 70hp.

I really like mine so far.

FWIW, my 2010 Mahindra 5035 (4wd, 50hp) has been awesome for plotting and grappling brush/trees. Right at 550 hrs. Keep it serviced and take care of it, will pass it to my son. Great price, warranty, and would buy again.
If you have a dealer close by, check them out. Bought mine in Clayton-great dealer.

Glenn, heck of a tractor for $30,000. I'd have to upgrade trailers for sure. My 5000 lb JD w/loader maxes it out.

I'd imagine a 1/2 ton truck isn't going to tow that setup....

I only pulled it about 8 miles with my D2500 Dodge/Cummins. It wasn't a problem to pull, but stopping would raise the hair up on the back of your neck.

I am ordering the parts to put brakes on all 3 axles of that trailer. I found a place where I can get the parts for about $110 a wheel, and convert it to 6 lug wheels at the same time

I just looked at the owners manual. The tractor without the loader weighs 6302 lbs. The loader model doesn't give the weight of the loader. I need to go to the truck scales and weigh it.

when I get water in the tires, I would suspect it will go well over 8000

The mahindra sounds like its a good bit heavier that the 70 horse Kubota. I'd say by the time you add the loader weight, and load the tires you may be closer to 9000. I think I'm around 8300 or so. I think the mahindra tractor by itself is about a 1000lb heavier.

Yes, that's a heavy machine. I purposely bought another JD tractor w/loader so I can leave it at the club and not have to take it back and forth. This summer I was pulling my tractor to the club, truck had a blowout and really messed up things. Not something I want to relive.

If I left a 70hp tractor at the club, someone would get a spare key and be using it as a bulldozer. haha.


Again, that's an Awesome tractor and heck of a deal!!!

Tractor Data .Com gives the front loader a 1350 lbs weight

http://www.tractordata.com/farm-trac...tachments.html

http://www.messicks.com/blog/post/Li...ast-Chart.aspx

Gives 16.9 x 30" 73 gallons added weight 609 lbs per tire
11.2 x 24" 24 gallons added weight 200 lbs per tire ....

Add the loader and all tires loaded .... 9270 lbs

thanks for the link.

they have other sizes for less $. The 5555 was about 2500 less. You could also step down to the 3500 or 4500 series, but I didn't price them. It was smaller than I needed for the farm

As a farmer, I can say that John Deere in that price range will be the imported stuff that is overpriced and not JD you're thinking of. I personally won't let anything lower model than an M on my farm. We use Massey, and I paid less for my decked out 4710 cab deluxe than most pay for an E series Deere with half the HP. Kubota - not bad but light, and you're gonna need a heavy tractor for that work.

My order of preference would be:
Massey
Mahindra
Kubota
Deere
