    Site Ownership Changes

    GTT members, supporters, and most importantly friends:


    Brian and I, as the owners of this forum have watched it grow at an incredible pace over the last three plus years. We’ve put of hearts and souls into this forum, and quite often our money as well to make this best tractor forum on the net, one that truly is dedicated to helping people and making the members feel at home and unafraid to post even the most basic of questions. We think we have done pretty darn well and are very proud of our site and its members!


    This forum has given both of us some very proud moments. We have found ourselves celebrating over what some people may look at as a small accomplishment, but too us, we were thrilled with every hill we were able to climb. With those celebrations also came times of stress. We always wanted to have our forum online and without errors. We held our self to the standards that at some times were unattainable as we wanted to be everything we could for our members. Because of this ever expanding growth, the day-to-day operations have become more than we can handle by ourselves, the time it takes to run a GREAT forum like ours behind the scenes is tremendous, and with young families and full time careers we are often tasked to the limits.




    So, after many long discussions, we have decided that finding a small company with the same goals that we have who can dedicate the proper time and resources to continue to grow the forum would be in the best interest of the future of GTT. It was important that this company be involved in agriculture and understand the members we have. We also needed to know that they would run the forum with the members best interest in mind. We selected a company that is dedicated to making very few changes, and has the forums best interest in mind. They see all the good things we have done and want to continue forward in that direction. Rest assured that we have researched and vetted this company extensively as we feel GTT is a part of us, and we want to see it continue to be a welcoming place for all.


    Brian and I are NOT going anywhere; we are still a part of the forum and will continue to be contributing active administrators. It is our intention that this change goes unnoticed by all the members of GTT.


    At this time I’d like to introduce Lee and Kevin of Congregate Media, their usernames are LeeD and Texkev , they open to any questions and/or suggestions you may have. Please welcome them to the GTT family.

    Hello GTT community!

    My name is Lee and I am one of two partners in the new ownership of this super community. Along side me will be a dear friend of mine, Kevin. Kevin will handle much of the day-to-day items, but we will both be around. I am thrilled to take the reigns of a community that is not only a great resource, but a great bunch of people. Both Brian and Kenny will be sticking around and continuing to be a part. We very much look forward to the community's bright future!

    I am 34 years old, married (for 16 years), with two daughters. I hope to fit in along side of each of you and enjoy the community for what it is...a great place for folks to talk John Deere!

    Hello Hello...

    Hello all

    My name is Kevin W, I work with my beyond good friend Lee. I live near Denton TX, 40 years old and no kids - I have lived in Texas my whole life. Very happy to be a part of the group here. We have heard what an amazing community it is, and can certainly see that for ourselves.

    My wife is from Cedar Falls Iowa. Her Grandfather retired from John Deere and loved that company, I mean loved it. Other members of her family back in the day used to work there as well. 2 still regret to this day leaving it and coming to Texas.

    I stay at home and care for my disabled wife, so I am usually online if there are any issues reported, etc.

    If anyone has any needs or questions, please never hesitate to ask or PM me. I just want to be a help here if I can.
