    Hey, everyone. Just took delivery on our new JD model 4010 FWD compact tractor. Has the 410 front end loader, a 4" rotary cutter and a 48" AgriMetal aerator. Will be used mostly for aerations and mulch installs. Just playing around with it, it seems to be pretty sweet. Anybody else have one or any comments about them?

    When my business gets up and running, I hope to trade my Yanmar 1401D for something similar to what you've got. Similar capabilities, but your new JD is much more efficient and user friendly. Good choice!!:D

    When I saw 4010 my first thought was of the "original" 4010 which was, in its time, a big ag tractor. In fact it was the biggest in the JD lineup for a while. Granted the 8010 was made then as well, but that was not a succesfull step into the articulated tractor field for Deere.

    Other numbers the have recycled are the 70, which was an earlier ag tractor as well, a compact excavator and a small (tractor style) riding mower.

    The current 110 is Deere's first entry into the compact TLB market. The original 110 was their first entry into the lawn & garden arena, a step which was taken after much deliberation by the board of directors as an answer to the IHC Cub Cadet garden tractor.

    Congrats on your machine.. Have similar plans next year. I am awaiting some literature from Deere.
    Was contemplating a mini-Skid Steer becasue of size and weight contraints. The Kubota BX22 did not impress me as much as the Deere 4000 compacts. What is a ball park for one of these
    with the front bucket? Around 15K?

    The price you quoted is in the ballpark. Go to the John Deere website, click on turf and lawncare, then at the bottom of the dropdown list is a place to build and price equipment. Build your machine with the options you want and you instantly get JD's suggested retail price. Now go to your best JD dealer and work something up with him and I bet he will sharpen his pencil for ya.

    I regularly operate a 4710. The tractor has been reliable and I find it comfortable to operate. The loader on the other hand was poorly designed. The hydrallic flow is inadequate to operate the bucket properly. Another concern on the smaller unit we have (I believe a 4410) is the loader having enough power to actually twist the loader so be careful.

    I am just waiting to pick up my JD 2210. I spent 10,000 on attachments. I looked at the 4010 but found it was to big for me......Congrats on the new tractor
