    Default Out with the old, in with the new

    Although I've never asked a question here, I've followed all the advice and went with the best dealer in my area. Our 'old' 1466 was a great tractor. The sound of a turbo diesel is the best. But it was starting to develop too many little problems and some transmission trouble, so we decited to buy a new tractor. Since my inlaws farm we can sometime borrow implements so a 'compact' would be a little too small. Our choices were the JX55, TN55, 5xxx series. The New Holland/kubota dealer has the feel of a used car lot. When we asked for a price the salesman said, "yeah, it's about $xx,xxx, I think." The Deere dealer never did follow up with any prices. Here's the photos of the old and new.

    PS I'm posting here since the CIH forums don't get much traffic.

    Last of the new.

    I only have 1 hour so far, and we're going out of town this weekend. I'll try to answer any questions as soon as I get some seat time.

    I'll get some closeups on request.

    A Man and His New Tractor! It just doesn't get any better than this! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I know what you mean by the "used car salesman" mentallity. Had one of those at a somewhat local kubota dealer - funny how everything he had in stock was just perfect for me, but nothing I asked about (and he didn't have) would work. Yeah, right. Took my $$$ elsewhere too!

    Luckily I found a good Kubota dealer and I got what I actually wanted (insert shameless plug for Rioux Farm Equipment in El Campo, TX here)! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Woodland is just north of Sacramento, Woodland Hills is near Santa Clara. There's few hills here. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
