    Although I agree that the JD 4020 is a GREAT tractor, I have to agree that you'll get the most bang for your buck with an Oliver.

    A neighbor bought a 1972 Oliver 1755 in '95 or '96 and I've forgotten whether he said he paid $5,000 or $5,500, but in either case, he's sure gotten his money's worth out of it. For two summers, I racked up a lot of hours on it myself, cutting, baling, and moving hay.

    I'd look at the IH 66 or 86 series.
    I just sold an early 70's 1466 (140HP) for
    $ 10K.
    These are strong tractors or go to the 88 series.
    The family is looking at getting a newer Magnum
    and selling the 5088 (150 HP) and 5288 (168HP)for
    around $20k each.

    I used a Case 970 on the farm with a cab - Case had nice cabs back then. - also a neighbor had a Allis XT 190 - He had it a long time. My 1st tractor was a Farmall 966 - No Cab - Daddy said I Didn't need a cab starting out farming - Still no cab.

    My father in law was nice and let me use the 5020
    to haul my grain into mill.
    NO CAB, 5 to 7 miles and near 0 outside pulling
    2-4 gravity wagons.
    He used the 986 w/ cab to run augers
    Best thing he did was trade the 5020 for
    a 3588 (ant-eater).
    For the money these are good tractors u see
    many of them under 10k and the're over 150 HP
    w/ CHA.
    Only problem is LOOKS .

    Looks are a matter of opinion. Mine is that the 2+2's were some of the nicest looking machines International built. They are nice machines and I know of a lot of farms still using them so they seem to be holding up quite well. I still hear rumors that CNH is going to release a MX based 2+2 soon. It will be interesting to see what happens with that.
