    Well, you sure answered my question, purple tractor man! If I squint my eyes, your thumbnail signature looks pretty close to what I saw on the I-state. Thanks!

    P.S. I can confirm it doesn't look anything like that goofy reptile!

    Long is headquartered in Tarboro NC, so it is not suprising you would see a truckload of them on the interstate. For a better shot of my tractor (no squinting) look at This</font color=red> thread.

    ED: i guess one of the biggest things was i really wanted a hydro, and they did not have one, also on the model i looked at 2years ago , the deck seemed a little cluttered. but do have to admit it was nice machine, and the price was decent. in all truthfulness i was afraid of a not well know name. have talked to a few guys in the area that bought one and they seemed pleased, if i was in the market again i would consider one again,did they ever get a hydro model?

    Frank, they have a Landtrac 390HST on the lot at my dealers. It is pretty much the same as my 360DTC, with a hydro tranny rather than a gear. It has a 2 pedal drive. I haven't had time to stop and ask any questions about it (I stopped to look at it on a Sunday).

    Thanks for the info, Ed. That's a nice looking unit. Looks like it's been several months since your picture was posted. Tractor and dealer still treating you right?

    That picture was taken in January.
    I am still very happy with both the tractor and the dealer. I'm still amazed at the amount of work I've got done with my tractor. I've only had a few minor problems with the tractor, that my dealer handled quickly and to my satisfaction.
