I can't speak for your individual dealer, but we're an ag dealer and work on construction equipment from time to time. You just have to keep in mind that the technicians aren't as familiar with the yellow stuff, and we have to buy parts through a construction dealer. This means you shouldn't expect to have a lot of parts (other than belts, filters, and the like) on hand, and the techs won't know the ins and outs of your machine like they would a tractor. But if you don't mind service and parts taking slightly longer, it can work fine. If you're serious about a Deere, stop by the local ag dealers and talk to their parts and service guys. You'll be able to get a pretty good idea of how they'll treat you based on their initial reaction to your questions.
