  • OT: New tractor day tomorrow

    My old(ish) Massey Ferguson is going to be traded for either a John Deere or a Kubota. Something in the 25 to 26 HP range.

          What do you do with a tractor like that? Well before Ford was building the first affordable V8, they also came out with the first tractor that incorporated the engine block as part of the frame. This allowed for lower center of gravity and lower cost. I was kind of looking for a small tractor like that to grade my gravel drive that goes back to our walk out basement. Instead, I have ordered a "power grader" from DR that can be pulled by an ATV or garden tractor.

          There was a charity that bought old Ford tractors and rehabbed them before sending them to Africa for hungry people to use to grow their own food. The machines are so simple that many people without much mechanical experience can maintain them. It was one of those "teach a man to fish" ideas. I don't know if the organization still exists, but he price of those old Fordsons and Jubilees have increased dramatically, so the idea that they could be refurbished on the cheap is probably over.

              I say hold out for the Hoyt-Clagwell. It's the best tractor for picking up hot babes.

                  Kubotas are rock solid. But be wary of the soot regeneration engines (an emissions thing). Most people don't like them. I think by now though they may be better - look into it.

                  If you get an older one be sure it has independent PTO, so that would mean it shouldn't be too old.

                      I`ve operated for years. The Kubota is going to be cheaper, but you`re not going to find anything as smooth as a Deere.

                        Well, I bought a new Kubota that falls just under the requirements for problematic emissions standards. The people at the J. Deere dealer were so rude that I walked out. This tractora step up from the one I own that is getting pretty old but also struggles a little towing my 4000 lb travel trailer around my parking area and in and out of it's carport.

                          Sounds like you need the whole Kit and Kubota.

                            I operated both for years. Kubotas are better, IMO. I'd never buy a JD over a Kubota. There are other companies in Asia now that make good machines too. Tractor production has shifted to Asia, to a large degree.

                            I do have a ride on JD mower though. Mowing my lawn is my new job. Going broke fast.
                            No complaints about the mower. I expect it to break at some point but it's been solid so far.

                              I almost bought one of these last year - fully restored. Glad I didn't though.
