    Is the secret code phrase "I'm a friend of Bubber's"?

    I dunno. A 3039r with a cab is still calling my name. Gotta resist swinging by the dealer's lot while I'm out today...

    That's me. I don't want a new tractor. Could have bought (most) anything, but I chose a 790 for a reason- simplicity. No computers, no emissions equipment, just tractor. When dad bought his new 5065E, I encouraged him to find one that was either new old stock, or slightly used- just avoid the tier 4 stuff. He found a new, 2014 model. No DPF, but still plenty of electronics to become a nightmare...

    I'm with you, Bubber.

    I've been doing some "Window Shopping" & dreaming also. Although I'd love a new tractor(FEL/BH), I'll have to wait a few years(hope I live that long).

    While I'd love a new 2038R I just can't justify spending that kinda money. My old 955 with 700 hours does everything I need it to. Sure a JDQA style loader would be nice. But that can be fabricated. The autocorrect next deck is neat. But I only take my deck of a few times a year and it takes about 10 minutes to put it back on.

    I'd love a backhoe for it though. And they are tough to find around here.

    But I can always rent a mini excavator when I need that.

    So I really can't complain.

    This. That is one reason I went with my 955. I can actually work on the thing.

    Visiting and participatng on this forum every day makes it tough - especially with the new 2 series. But at the end of the day I am still very happy with my now 10 year old 2520 - don't know that I would ever give it up.

    Same goes with my now 8 year old pick-up. Maybe it is older age (and certainly the lack of money) but I've become quite attached to my older stuff.

    When I bought both they were to be a lifetime purchase and that is holding true - so far......

    My tractor is 10+ years old and it took all I could muster to pay as much as I did for it a few years ago. If I brought home a new tractor, Sweetie would have a cow!! Of course, the local JD dealer does have an '09 4520 on his lot that would be a sweet upgrade to my 3520! Not gonna do it though... but that exhaust stack coming up through the hood is pretty cool!!



    One thing that I am glad about is that when I bought, I bought bigger than I'd originally planned on buying. And I've bought plenty of toys that fit on it too. (hmmm, those same toys would also fit on that 4520! )

    Why do I feel like I've heard that a thousand times before...Images of my mother and my wife just keep swimming around in my head. My old LX 172 is a 1993 model, and has about 1200 hours. The hood disintegrated a long time ago, but she just keeps huffing and puffing and eating the grass. The "Hey, look at me...I'm driving a John Deere" feeling has passed, along with the hood; and I get the distinct feeling that my neighbors are not as jealous as they once were...even if they mow with MTD's and Huskys.
    Have wings, will travel.
