    IMG_0021.JPG IMG_0311.JPG I'm nearly 60 yrs old and I never owned a new tractor before. But I needed something with a solid front leader, a great backhoe, and enough hp to run a large round bailer. So when I retired, I bought a Mahindra 6530.

    Now I had my shiny newness sitting in the rain and snow.

    So next, I built a 24' by 40' open faced tractor barn with room to store the Mahinda, my older John Deere 790, and two older pickups.

    I did that 20 years ago when I bought my first new tractor,

    Lots of money to sit out in the weather.

    John Deere makes a nice midsized 4WD tractor, except it costs $9k more.
    The new Kabotas don't look anything like the old ones. I was kind of disappointed.
