I was finally able to find a ride to replace my pro fxt that was stolen a couple months ago. I’ve looked all over and wasn’t able to find a pro fxt in stock they all pretty much had a waiting list and wasn’t sure when they were getting them. The few dealers that had them had markup on them and I was not about to do that. So I ended up getting a new 4010 trans 4x4. If anyone have any feedback on them I would appreciate it. My plan is to keep this one until this inventory mess is worked out and trade it for a new pro fxt or who knows I may just keep it. Again I’m curious to hear how these things workout as hunting rides pictures would be good too Thanks.

We had a 2011 and kept it for 6 years before trading it in on a Can Am. No problems at all with the 4010- it had a dealer-installed lift and Essex tires on it when we bought it and would go anywhere on the place and usually 4WD wasn't needed. The only thing I ever replaced was the belt and that was understandable because I usually hauled 1000 pounds of corn when I was filling feeders.
Good machine, but slow. That was OK most of the time.
The Can Am is a much more powerful machine and is faster and rides better. But I would still take another 4010 in a heartbeat.
I had the oil changed every year and kept it on a battery tender. Other than that, nothing special to maintain.

Curious how much the new 4010 models run?

I just bought a 2012 4010 Trans 4x4 and paid $7k for it. It's in good shape, but there is a bad vibration in the middle rpm ranges. Not sure what's going on with that.

Ride is good and the overall design seems perfect for us. But I just hope this thing doesn't turn into a maintenance nightmare.

I picked up ours for $9699 plus taxes and fees which changes if you are ag exempted.

Nice ride. That’s one of the few things I want to do to it a lift, bigger tires, winch, and a tailgate feeder.
