Been searching for some time. Mostly locally, but looked at a few tractors while I was working in MO/NC. Maybe I was a little gun shy after 56's dealings with his Internet purchase, and not really wanted to have to work on something with Winter pending I kept shopping locally.
I had talked to the local Deere dealer about a 6420 they took in trade. The lot salesman gave me one price, but when it came down to really getting firm numbers the price went up, and for an older tractor I really didn't want to spend the money.
This tractor happen to be part of the same trade in from a local hay operation as the 6420, but wasn't big enough for their liking.
I think it will suit me and my needs just fine. If I need a bigger tractor down the road, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. May keep an eye out for an older 2wd tractor for hay needs, but that will be way down the line.
Here ya go Diane!
