Just watched the John Deere show...Was primarily focused on the new 3E series "value" or "economy" tractors that where unveiled for the first time today.

Things that stood out for me:

1. Yanmar 3cyl engines
2. Made (assembled) in Gorgia
3. Loader is FACTORY installed, and is NO a quick-detached unit, but the bucket still is QA
4. Joystick for FEL is mounted on the mast like Kubota does-I HATE this!
5. NO split brakes
6. Mechanical hydrostatic tranny (2 speed I think)
8. 1100lbs FEL lift capacity
9. Cruise control optional
10. Fixed ROPS
11. NO Mid-PTO option

They kept saying basically "you will surprised at the price!"
