Re: JD or Husqvarna
So you guys are telling me that a 20 or 30 yr. old tractor, will be trouble free, vs. a new John Deere x5** ? I thought that JDs, even small ones were tough? and old stuff is.... old stuff. it's like buying a car, I woudl always choose a new car over an old Ford. Tractors have the same components as cars; wheels, engines etc. so they are bound to break down if they are old. right? what am I missing?
And I know I can only use a single moldboard plow on a small garden tractor, it's not like I could pull a set of 7 plows, but on 2 acres I can afford to leisurely chug along and do it furrow by furrow
I am not really disagreeing with anybody here, Im just trying to get to the bottom of this, because for 6 grand all I see available are antiques.
