    Default Input Welcome

    First Post here and would like some input.
    First I have had nothing but a 9N and then an 8N for farm use since I was a kid and that has been 50 years ago. Now I need a new modern tractor for our Goat operation. So I have narrowed it down to some specs.
    1. 35-40hp
    2. 30-35PTOHP
    3. FEL

    Needs to be able to lift round bales.
    Due to my previouse tractor experience I reall would rather have a 8X2 gear shift, that is because I don't know enough about shuttleshift and such.
    I do not think I need 4wd either. What I need is a good old heavey framed reliable tractor without a lot of maintenance junk to break or bells and tricks.

    I have narrowed it down a bit ( in no particular order)
    1. LSg3038 $16800 w/fel
    2. MF 2605 $17000 w/fel ( $11900 w/o fel) ?? Why is the FEL so high on MF's 66" bucket
    3. Mah 4035 $ ??????? Can't get a quote, they say come on in and we'll talk.

    So what say the crew about the list..
    I will be shreading, draging and stacking hay. Cleaning out barns and lots. Just general farm utility use.

    Thanks

    Have you considered kubota MX 4700 or 5100? They are a little higher hp than your range but are good tractors. They will handle round bales with ballast in the tires and on the 3 point hitch.

    Those numbers look a bit off (low) to me, but they're too high to be 800mm specs.

    LS shows the max lift for the R3039 at 2,250@ the pivot pin.
    Kubota shows max lift for the MX 4700 as 2,443 @ the pivot pin.
    MF shows max lift for the 2605 as 2,650, 2,859, and 2,952 @ the pivot pin for the L200, L210, and DL250 loaders .

    Pulled those right off the published paperwork. Might be wrong, might be right.
    I talked to the Mah dealer and he has a 4025 2wd with Koyker fel $15200.00 4025 2wd with Mahindra fel $16500.00
    Don't know much about the FEL's.
    Anyone have any comments on these. Wife says I have to buy this weekend.. She's so pushy
