Tractor work has almost reached the level of therapy for me. After a day in the office, there seems to be no better way to unwind than doing tractor work in anticipation of hunting season.

I'm researching the New Holland T4000 models; John Deere 5065M; and Kubota M5040/M6040. I would rather pay more for quality and durability.... and would ideally like to find a "premium," well maintained, but used tractor with around 1500 hours or less and 50-60 PTO horsepower.

The local New Holland dealer does not have any T4000 models, but suggested the Workmaster 75.... it looks like a well built tractor, but it looked like that model didn't have a solid rear axle. The T4000 specs seem to indicate that a higher price would come with higher capacities.

Most dealers have a 5 year no interest payment plan, but I doubt whether buying a new tractor would be worth the extra cost, as opposed to paying cash for a well maintained, slightly used model.

Primary uses will be clipping, tillage, planting & spraying around 30-40 acres of winter & summer food plots in Mississippi with heavy soil in our Black Prarie region. I intend on using a John Deere Model WH 76 offset disc harrow, a current restoration project, as well as a category II chisel plow.

All comments would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to MTF, glad to have you here. The JD's are really nice and if New Holland did not change the model #'s I would know which tractor is what. My cousin has a New Holland TC45D and it does every thing he asks and more.
