Have you considered swapping your factory fuel filter/base for a different style such as the Roosa-master rectangular type?

No, just a little hesitant to muck with system design. Am I being too cautious?

My knowledge of common-rail fuel systems is very limited & I plan on my not having any "hands on" experience. So I will not comment further on altering/substituting fuel filter.
Have you ever checked the fuel transfer pump pressure/flow?

Not sure but I am assuming (I know, bad) that the JD Tech did when he was diagnosing the issue once. Lord knows I paid enough for the service call.

From what I’m understanding, all the recommended models are under 100hp… any particular reason? If I was ready to splurge a little, any models over 100hp? Predef/pre 2013…

Pretty expensive, especially without a loader. Check around online and you can get a better feel for current pricing across the nation.

If you go above 100hp, the physical size gets to be too much. There are some exceptions to this though.

I suggested a 5101E I know some may say that is a cheaper version but I think they are rating it around a 100HP. LIke I said neighbor pulls a 9 ft discbine with his and it is not that big of tractor for physical size.

Yep.

I am running a 5100E, 2240 and a 5400 with mostly CAT1 implements on 28 acres. the 10’ flail will only run on the 5100E along with the 12’ disk. I am not set up to handle the physical size of a larger tractor in some of the tighter spots. I have had no major issues with any of these tractors, but I put about 200 hours total on per year between all three. At some point, it helps having multiple different sized tractors that are close enough in size to run most of the same implement, just in case of breakdown.

I have a 5105m....the most hp in predef....other than a few of the 5115m's that were only avaliable for a short time......but nothing you mentioned would require over 85 in my opinion

As a comparison in 2019 I purchased a new 2019 5100M with a loader for $72K. Granted it uses DEF but the price on the one you mention does seem a little high and not include a loader. Last year I bought a one owner 2013 6105M (461 hrs) with a loader for $74K. Not sure if this helps or not but at least its a comparison.

I wouldn't hesitate at a well cared for and serviced, 2 to 3,000 hour tractor, if it was priced accordingly. Have to know the price of a comparative new one to know what the price per hour difference is. You may be better trying to find something under 1,000 hours though.

Thank you! And thank you helping me throughout. Seeing a lot of 5100m’s for sale 2013 and older… is 5095m > 5100m? Again, sorry for the noob questions… just wondering if certain models were better than other for whatever reason.

Also priced our a new 5100R with a loader and a 12’ rotary cutter… $112k!

It's been a while since I was a dealer tech so I could be remembering wrong but I think the 5095m was tier 3 emissions vs tier 4 for the 5100m. I would definitely recommend against an early tier 4 tractor if you're getting a tractor with emissions equipment get as new as you can. Or buy something pre dpf (5095 5105)

The 5r series was just coming out when I left the delearship so I don't know too much about them but between a 5m and a 5e the 5m is a much better built tractor.

This entire time I’m searching for older Deere tractors thinking ALL new diesel Deer’s have DEF. Otherwise I’m definitely interested in a new 5R without DEF… would that be the 5095 or 5100?

Sorry for the confusion. Any new tractor your going to get in that size is going to have DEF. All 5r tractors are going to be new enough to need DEF.

What I was referring to are what are known as Interim Tier 4 tractors, the first round of heavily emissionized tractors that have DPFs but do not take DEF and are in fact worse than the tractors that take DEF. I think the 5100m is one of those tractors that has a DPF but does not take DEF but I do not remember for sure. Where a 5095M is a tier 3 tractor so it has minimal emissions equipment.
