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...

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.

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! )
