    Default Finally pulled the trigger

    Well I finally made up my mind on which type of tractor to buy. I finalized the deal on Wednesday and gave the dealer a deposit. It was between a TC33D or L3010. I felt more comfortable with the L3010 and also the kubota dealer. I expect to take delivery within the next few days.
    I got it with a loader, 5' Woods Brushbull, and a 5' Woods rear grading blade. I have jobs planned already of course. I told my wife that it will be my midlife crisis toy. Better a tractor than a Vet and a blonde. The dealer said, yea Bill the tractor is more practical too.
    Thanks for everyone's help over the past few weeks.

    Congratulations, Bill. I got really close to the same thing (my Father has a 2001 L3010 HST) just before I found the old blue Ford. I've managed to stave off the inevitable for a few more years. My second childhood is scheduled for between 2005 and 2008, if my wrists hold out with the manual steering.

    Pictures would be nice.

    Congratulations Bill. I bought my B2910 two years ago using the same "mid-life crisis" term. Fortunately, I was quickly corrected by someone a few years my senior that said I was "too young for a mid-life crisis, your tractor is a pre-mid-life crisis".

    That leaves some wiggle room for a vette after the tractor is paid for. I won't comment on the blonde...my wife is within visual range of my monitor. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]


    Enjoy,

    Hmmm... I never thought of it that way, but... I got the blonde in November and my Deere in December. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Neither was new but each was low mileage. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img] Guess which one requires less maintenance. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I tried the mid-life crisis thing a couple of years ago when I first started to look for a tractor. I said I wanted something that would out-last me. She said I was to young for a mid-life crisis, anyway I was supposed to want a sports car. I waited a year or so, and went I out and bought a Lincoln LS V8. I know this may not be a proper sports car, but this is my first real car. I've only owned trucks. Now its a year later and I'm still looking for a tractor. She says, I'm wierd.
