My Tractor Posts...Clarification

To understand my posts.......

The tractors I listed are the opinions of many older farmers that used these tractors over the years, not my personal opinion. Additionally, the info was from some sources that test or gather information regarding tractors. I have not owned most all of the tractors, nor am I an expert. I think a tractor is a serious purchase & 'here-say' would be a dis-service. The info I gathered was over the last 3 months on the internet.

As for parts, the information I posted is for new parts for sale on a dealers shelf in the USA. After all, I would not buy a tractor unless I had ready access to parts so I can repair it quickly to running condition. Not all new parts are available such as steering gears or steel wheels. Fortunately, many used parts are available from yards & special interest groups.

Jimbob it seems to me you thought things out pretty good I noticed that you did not pick out one tractor in the beginning and try to defend it till the bitter end. If I remember you seamed to kinda have you heart set on a tractor at one time, but listened to the pros and cons from several people before making you decision. Not sure why some seemed to get their tail over the dashboard but I hope your new venture goes OK for you. Having been born and raised on a farm and living on my Grandfarthers farm I am the third generation here it is the way of life for me. Hope I can leave it so my kids and grandkids can make the fourth and fifth to live on it.

I listen to 'hands on' farmers...Jimbob..nt    Posted 02-11-2003 at 08:04:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
