After too many hours of research, test drives and other research I pulled the trigger on a Kabota L3800 with FEL, box scraper and clamp on pallet forks. Was only able to run for about 6 hours before having to park and leave town. Really am happy with the tractor.

Congrats on the new machine! I bet you'll find it a bit different to operate than the old machine you're showing it with. All I can say is that it looks like you got your money's worth out of the old one.

Can you believe that some farmer ran that old Fordson all day. That's why they live short lives I guess.

A lot were converted to rubber tires for a good reason.

That ol' Fordson is holding it's own, nose to nose with a machine of 'light' duty parts.
"go git im' Fordson!"

One of the first projects was to move the Fordson back about a foot to give an oak tree some room. The Kabota moved it but not without working a bit of a sweat.:thThumbsU

I think you'll be very happy with your purchase as I know I am with mine after almost a year and a half. Got the quik-tach loader and I can switch to bale spike in about a minute. Very powerful cut tractor, but wouldn't have it without 4wd.
