MY FIRST HO

PostBy: coaledsweat On: Sun Jun 01, 2008 7:57 pm

:) No you pervert, not that kind of ho, a backhoe.

I looked at a John Deere 110 TLB today and was wondering if anyone here knows how they stack up to the other compacts. It looks like a smaller 310. Are these things good machines? It looked very well made to me. It is an '06-7 with 285 hours on it. The dealer has come down a grand to $32,000, I'm thinking $30,000 maybe. Another dealer has a new one for $38,000 but it doesn't have the F/R optional hydraulics. I didn't want to go more than $25K but there aren't many around here for sale.

I don't know a thing about JD equipment, a bit out of my price range. Take a look at http://www.kiotitractor.com/ My first large compact tractor was a Kioti with a Woods brand hoe and loader. It was a good value and the only brand I could afford to buy new.

I was kinda under the impression that New Holland manufactured most of the farm tractors under 100 horse. If you look at them , there body styles are real similar. Kubotas don't look similar. The JD's, the internationals, the new hollands all look the same just different color. Same gig as MTD. I'd check out the Fords and cut out alot of money for the same tractor. :) Scott

The JD 110 isn't an AG machine, it is construction and significantly different than it's competitors.

It is a little more money, but they seem to have much better resale value than their competition. It also appears to be a lot more rugged than the others.

Virtually every tractor manufacturer makes a line of their own compact utility tractors.. John deere makes a bunch of them..

The 'styling' of the tractors seems like automobiles.. someone comes out with a new 'look' and everyone follows..

Here is a very good site for lots of info and help:

I've owned a few fords [pre-New Holland] and a bunch of JohnDeeres.. I like the Deeres a lot.. pricey,, but very good units.

I have him down to $29,500 + tax delivered to my door, I may just have to pull the trigger on this one.

Does anyone know how this Economic Stimulus stuff works with capital expenditures? Even as a small business it looks like I can take a $10,500 deduction the first year. Can I claim a sole propritor business in this case?

Sting, do you have a JD 110 or a different model?

I have an ancient Ford 4500 TLB with a 4 stick control - I bought it with a busted crank shaft and a broken loader arms in 1981- its been my pal ever since. Certainly if you were going to try to make a living or do a significant job - modern New Holland, Case or JD equipment is the way to go. - That too depends on the dealer you have close to support your equipment needs. :idea:
