Strengths This is a great machine, easy to use, has commercial qualities that you will not get on a green model. I had a 4400 and moved up to this 110 and have been very happy with it. The back hoe removes easier than the 4400 did, it has a canopy as standard equipment.I use the front end with my skid steer attachments, which is the real selling feature to me. It will take any standard skid steer attachment on the front, brooms, post hole diggers, anything that required hydralic power to operate. Keep in mind that this machine cost me approximately $8,500.00 more than a 4720 would have, but the 4720 is an ag machine and does not have all the features this has. Dollar for dollar I really feel that the
Weaknesses The front hydralic conectors are very hard to conect when you change from attachment to attachment. I have been told that deere is working on this, not fast enough I might add. Deere just upgraded the seat to a full suspension seat so I will not tell you how hard the 04's and earlier ride, it was a very hard ride. A factory cab option needs to be added, at this time you can only get an after market cab, which I did, it is a great cab, but it should have came from the factory with it.
Overall I will buy a new 110 next year, but only if Deere has done something about the front quick couplers. If you need an agg tractor, a skid steer, and a mid size backhoe then this machine will make you smile every time you get to use it.
