Had a Ford years ago until it broke in half (I wasn't driving). Parted it out and have been tractorless for too long, placated with an occasional excavator rental. My wife has been suffering tractor envy recently and the Ellensburg Rodeo JD tent sealed her fate.
So off she went to the Mount Vernon Washington Tractor, test drove a couple, and we'll be taking delivery of a new 1025r, FEL, TBL with thumb, and brush cutter tomorrow or Friday. Spent quite a bit of time browsing posts here and watching TTWT before pulling the trigger.
