I have a number of tractors. The newest is about 15 years old. I have a couple Olivers, an MF and International. Most get used for at least one thing but mostly I just like them. But it might be time to get a new tractor (in addition to the current fleet. I need something in the 55hp range, 4x4, loader with detachable bucket. I don"t think I want a hydrostat as I"m told they are not really the best for baling hay but I would like to have a reverser?? I have a local JD outfit that I just can"t do business with but there are others within 40 miles. The most local is a Kubota dealer and he"s ok to deal with. MF dealer is about 40 miles also, NH dealer is also about the same distance. So getting to a dealer for service/parts is really about the same no matter what. So, if you were buying today what would you buy?

Hi
From what you have said, Not getting along with the green guy is the best plus you got here so no loss.
I got guys run all colors i know. Kubota seems to be getting popular from reading what guys say here, and see around in some areas. You got to listen around your area/ ask guys what they run and about problems, and see who has the best product for your job. Looks after customers the best. It"s no good buying the best tractor in the world, and the back up is useless when it quits or the warranties out.
I would just see if you can demo them and make a choice based on what you like and want to spend. Also now you got to watch this smurf pee (DEF) emmission control motors, I hear from most guys this stuff is unreliable and expensive. Some guys round here are paying premiums for good used tractors before this came in, so they don't have the added expenses when the warranty is out. Heard of a $5000 out of warranty muffler the other day. Another guy had a $1000 call out to reset the computor system as the New Holland didn't like running on Co-op DEF fluid.
Regards Robert
