    I was planning on waiting a little longer for the pilots or even the 440CT but in the end I gave in to the promotional offer 1.5% interest and 4000 hour warranty. Pretty much fully loaded minus AC, but I did get the cab and heat, hyd. coupler, ride control etc. I plan on taking the door off during the warm months anyway. Not sure when I will see the machine unless it can be substituted for one ready to be built. The factory in Witchita is slammed with a 60-90 dayback log. Perhaps I can pull a favor or two.:drinkup:

    Excellent deal on the finance Kaiser. Maybe you can step it across to a pilot machine next year if the repayments are steady.

    How many years are you financing was the 1.5 percent interest???????? Is it short term?

    Last year i could get 2.9 at Deere for 3 years,but decided i wanted to strecth out my payments to down size them and went with 3.9 for 4 years and got the 3 year 3000 hour warranty that covered overthing.

    Decided the extended warranty ,might be a good thing since last year was the first year for the Deere ctl 332.It was figured in on the price when we were making the deal so knew what the cost was before made the deal.

    Traded older tractor in for down payment.So that helped a little !

    Well, it must be spring fever hitting us all. I just bought a new Gehl 5640 skid w/ cab, heat and air, stereo, quick tach, side to side bucket leveling, 2 speed, hydraglide ride control, all the bells and whistle options. $1,200 dn pmt, 1.5% for 60 months. Should be getting it in 4 weeks or so...in the meantime, dealer gave me a machine gratis until my new one comes in...

    Now, if the rain and snow would just stop and let spring begin!

    Yea the 70XT is getting traded on the 440. I was going back and forth on the cab VS no cab as he was writting the contract. We are in and out of the smaller machine a lot and so I did not see the value as much in getting the AC in it. Although for the $1000.00 extra at this point it might have been worth it just for resale. I would like to step it across I don't know if I can but I plan on trading it on the pilots when they release. So I probably will only have this machine for a year. I stretched the payments out to 5 years. I figured heck it almost free interest might as well let it ride. The extended warranty is engine and powertrain systems.

    Did you get the 05 model for the financing rate?
    We are looking at one and the "E" series machines (slightly different) and
    06 models do not have as favorable financing rates as you received.
    Just wondering if the financing rate is negotiable.
