just can't justify the cost

Went looking to upgrade yesterday, from my 4100 ,with 410 FEL and 54 inch mid mount mower, with 451 hours on it, to a used 2720 with 200CX FEL and 62D mower, with only 108 hours. Dealers best offer was $11400 plus 2 taxes of 5% each on difference, for a grand total of $12540 PLUS my 4100.

I really would like to move up , but started up the 4100 today and played for 1/2 hour on the acreage . Guess until I win the lotto , the 4100 will serve me well.

yea, I don't think you'd appreciate the difference in machine enough to take that kind of beating for it either.

Re: just can't justify the cost

Sure sux going to the dealers around here for sure Randy. I was going to trade our Gator TH 6x4 on a new 4 seater Gator 4x4 and well ya thats not going to happen either. I wanted to upgrade our 2320 to a 25 or 27 and the only way that will ever happen would be to sell the 2320 outright and go stateside and buy another unit.
