thats what i thought it was i was looking at a 5420 open station 81hp with 3000ish hrs on it and factory jd loader  they were asking $21900 thought that didnt sound to bad i have a 4020 now with no loader and im ready to move to a front assist with loader the one thing i wish it had was a left hand reverse but o well glad to see yours can handle some big logs.  i used the farms 6430 the other day to move a 42-36" by 10' walnut log and i think it was about all it wanted unless i put weight on the back but got it loaded know i just have to decide if i want to set it on my mill  ???
