Thanks Steve! Our salesman went above and beyond to make this happen asap. Tractor from one sister store, and backhoe from another (and in another State!). Orange was talking a 4 month wait. Prefer Made in USA anyhow. A win win.

Billy,

I shopped for my last tractor at different dealers, amazing how much difference there can be at dealerships in attitude and pricing. I was looking at the Kubotas as well, was leaning that way only due to cost, but found a deal on the JD that I could not pass. Very happy with my purchase.

What are you going to do with your tractor?

Where are you located?

We're in South East Arizona. Our land needs constant maintenance because of monsoon storms. With the help of a friend with a Case Backhoe, we've built earthworks, swales and berms to protect the developed portion of our property from flood waters that may breech the banks of nearby washes. So that'll be an ongoing task. Besides that we are building a Straw Bale House which hopefully will be completed by the end of 2021. My wife is a big Gardner too so preparing land for her greenhouse and garden plots will be much easier too. Link to our YouTube channel in my bio if you're interested.

Billy,

Sounds very nice and a great excuse to buy a brand new shinny Green Machine.

I had never thought about the monsoon rains causing wash outs. I have flown through Arizona during this season. I thought it was beautiful to see from the air and the storms were confined to areas that I could go around. When I started to hear the airliners get busy and asking for new routing and then saw how fast they grew, I know I needed a plan B. Sounds like you have it figured out.
