Realize this is off topic but would like your opinions and input - and kicking tires on the new medium size tractor. Looking at Coyote Mahendra Kubota International and any others that you want to throw your two cents worth in on!! Know that there are some that are in favor of the green paint but they are too proud of it dollar-wise! Looking at something between 45 and 60 horsepower! Thanks in advance for your input. Dusty B

Can't go wrong with a Kubota, but they're somewhat proud of those as well. I would consider a Mahindra, but know nothing about a coyote. Kioti is another one with decent reviews, but almost same price as it's orange cousin, which is a sure bet.

Myself, I try to look at resale down the road because you never know what might happen in your life. Sometimes, stuff just happens. If for any reason you'd need to liquidate the tractor, a John Deere or Kubota will sell easily where you may sit on a lesser brand and really take a beating on the resale price just to move it. Maybe it won't be you selling it, maybe it will be your kids once you're gone. (FYI, I'm taking my Cub with me) :lol:

I'm sure all of the tractors mentioned will give good service but years from now how hard will it be to get parts for the lesser brands? There are many forums for the JD and Kubota to provide support and years worth of used parts availability too. Having a good dealer in your area is another consideration. JD and Kubota dealers will always be around to supply parts and service too.

My dad purchased a JD 210 Garden Tractor back in 1974. Many of his friends thought he was nuts paying a premium price for a JD while they bought Craftsman or big box brand mowers saving a few hundred dollars. He used the mower from 1974 on and now 42 years later, I own it and it still runs like a champ and the motors never been apart. His friends have been through a pile of other mowers in the mean time....

Dusty,
I'm with Ricky on the JDs...

We had 3010's and 3020's all the while I was growing up and farming with my dad. I still have one of each, I believe they are around 60 hp.
The best part is they are simple tractors and as easy to work on- similar to a Cub only bigger. Not sure what you are going to be using it for but these handled all our manure hauling, haying, and medium duty field work.

One of the things to watch whatever color you go is tire replacement prices, that's what will kill me when that time comes...
Not sure the going price at auction, but they usually are fair priced tractors for what they can do.

I personally know nothing about the newer tractors, but have been seeing many of the farmers in this area that were buying JD and Kubota going to the new series of Farmalls. Kubotas have a good reputation, but if you need a non standard part it takes forever to get it. About 5 or 6 years ago one of the guys I used to work with got rid of his 2 year old Kubota after putting u hay all season with no AC because they could not get a compressor relay. I have also seen some complaints on other sites about JD claiming the farmer does not own the software in the engine control computer and that no one but an authorized dealer is allowed to work on parts of it whether in warranty or not.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Who makes the new Farmall's? I know there's no lineage to the real Farmall. Probably some far east company just purchased the righs to the name..... :roll:

What is the application? 45HP to 60HP sounds like you have a task in mind.
Is Diesel or Gas preferred? Is a 2wd acceptable or is a 4x4 required?
I personally really like older iron. Even the Green ones.

Don't forget about Case IH. They even make modern tractors in the Farmall name and letter series nowadays

Case New Holland Industrial (CNHI) manufactures several lines of IH named tractors including the Farmall.

International Harvester went through several purchases, ultimately purchased by Fiat. Fiat split off it's heavy manufacturing to include ag machinery 2 or 3 years ago, forming CNHI.

The Farmall name on a tractor is probably a paint color and decal change from another CNHI manufactured tractor.
I have an excuse. CRS.
