If you had to buy a new tractor.....

Postby sdehaven4 » Tue Apr 27, 2004 10:16 pm

What make and model would you purchase?

No one wants to work on my old Cub 70 and I don't have the time right now. While I will restore my old tractor in the future, I am feeling that I need to buy a new one now.

I would like to hear from the group on which make/model they would purchase and why if you don't mind spending a few extra seconds typing.

Thanks -
Thank you -

:roll: Kinda hard to answer your question. It depends on what your use would be for a tractor. I could suggest anthing from a walk behind to a D-10 Cat dozer?.

As Johnbron said it's hard to make a suggestion without knowing your intended use, but my first requirement on anything like that I am purchasing is who is going to service it.

If you are going to USE the tractor as a Garden tractor, buy a 3000 series Cub Cadet. Powerful, easy to drive and good resale value. Parts and service are availible nationwide.

If you just want to cut grass, get a junky wally world special that has no features and no resale value......
