2003 John Deere 4710 4×4 Compact Tractor with 460 Loader – $4200 (Peoria) Date: 2010-01-23, 1:30AM MST Reply to: see below 2003 John Deere 4710 Compact Tractor with Deere 460 Loader. Hydrostatic transmission so no shifting, just a pedal for forward and one for reverse. Runs great, one of the nicest tractors you’ll find for the age/hours. Cat 1 hitch with 2500 lb lift capacity. Loader has 73″ wide bucket with 2300 lb capacity and can haul a lot of snow, dirt, sand, etc. Seat is new, paint is good with light scratches where you would expect them… on the loader, etc. Starts easily even in the coldest weather, and runs like a champ. Has kit so exhaust goes out the bottom instead of in your face. Can be used for farm work, landscaping, general construction, a very versatile machine. Around 4500 lbs, so its light enough to transport on a small trailer or car trailer, but heavy enough to do what need to be done. This tractor has turf tires so it won’t tear up your yard, plus they have great traction. They clean out well and work great in snow/mud, and have superior traction on ice. Tractor has 795 hours currently. CONTACT ME AT: miche77fur@msn.com * Location: Peoria

    I replied to Jennifer that I would pick it up in person and pay cash and this is what she said.
    Hi again,

    The tractor is already at a shipping company in Las Vegas, NV. I took the tractor to them to be able to ship it to a potential buyer while I’m out of town. My brother in law works there, and he promised me that it will cost me nothing to ship it to your address. I also have the listed the tractor on eBay and that lets me use their secured system. I’m very busy with my job and I’m sorry I can’t meet you in person. According to eBay you have 5 days from the time you receive the tractor to inspect it, and decide if you want to keep it or not.
    So I’ve included the link to the auction on eBay, the only remaining thing for you to do is to place the winning bid .

    The scammer is now called Samantha and was advertising the same tractor with the same identical description in the Cape Cod area of Massachusetts. The price was $4,200 and she informed me she her husband died in iraq three months ago. The background of the pictures of the tractor did not look like Cape Cod…more like Maryland, Delaware or parts of the midwest.

    Regards, Ed

    Good eyes, Ed. I especially enjoy the pictures of Minnesota tractors parked in front of palm trees. 😉

    Is the price really 4200 for the tractor with loader?

  22. Chief said, on July 15, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    Ken, look at the title of this page (in the top line of your browser). Everything here is a scam.
