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.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?
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 opinionFrom 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…
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.Is this crazy or OK?

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.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.
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)Thank you!

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