    So as long as everything checked out and it was not stolen, and it was actually functional and not a scam... is this a great deal and will regret not jumping on it.

    2006 JD 4520 w. 36hrs
    4 wheel drive
    eHydro static transmission
    400x loader w. hood guard and 73" bucket
    Frontier 72" rotary brush hog
    Frontier 2072 Box blade
    4th & 5th SCV Diverter kit

    seller is asking 5000 OBO.

    based on picture it looked NEW and shiny but i dont know if those were taken the day of purchase so i would obviously go check it out first. I am looking for any and all information because i have never bought a tractor before but could use one in many ways.

    you sure? it is about 45min away from my house in a little nobody town. I doubt that some scam would you it. the population is literally about 500 people.

    Sorry but he is right. There is no way that anyone in theur right mind would take that much of a loss on a tractor.

    I will almost guarentee that if you email them they will say it is not actually in that town. They will tell you they can ship it to you and ask for payment up front.

    If you are really curious you can email them but under no circumstance should you send anyone money without seeing the tractor first.

    Look at what they are offering: Tractor w/only 36 hr. & loader, a 6 foot brush hog, and box blade. I don't know, but either someone is awful desperate, It's bad broke, or someone's gonna get riped off----BEE Careful

    PS: Had nothin' to do. Looked on line.....Looks like that machine, ALONE, sells at around 18,000 to 29,000 Like I said Be Careful. Just my nickle. And let's not forget, how that green paint keeps it's value. If it were for sale for the price you say, and it's good?.....It would be gone by now.

    Scam for sure. They steal someone's legit ad and then post it for crazy low money everywhere else in the country. Check other CL's cities and I bet you find it posted there too.

    If a dealer offer, depends on the dealer. If a factory offer, it will be good on all new Kiotis, and no worries -- but note that the huge "rebate" is not $4500 but UP TO $4500, and the Kioti range goes up to some pretty big models.
