I'd like to have a 4000 AP. We have some 800s, a 900, 3000, 4610 SU, 7600, and a 345d. I think I'd get a lot of use out of the 4000. The 4610 SU spends most of its time on the 9ft finish mower. We use the 7600 for mowing and baling. 3000 and 800s for tedder / rake duty and general use. My biggest gripe about the 4610 SU is the power steering is slow and not as nice as the 7600 and the front is too light. The 4000 would be better on both counts. I have a Harley Rake and a 14k dump trailer that I pull around the farm a lot too. The SU spends more time with the front tires off the ground than on. I made a big concrete weight for it, which helps.

The 4000 that I have in pieces is in good to average condition. The rear tires have great tread but are cracked all over. The sheet metal looks pretty good, but would need some serious work to be worth painting (in my opinion). I like sheet metal repair and painting, so that part is not a big deal to me. It would just take me some time and about 300 or so in paint products and I'd have it looking better than a new tractor.

I have no intentions of selling any of the tractors I work on, but I'm not into making bad investments either (at least if I can help it).
