    My dealer is 650 miles away, the only time that I have gone there is to buy a new tractor.
    Ta, Mate. There's a first time for everything and I reckon I'm ready. With the good help of TBN I started a thread a few months ago asking what tools & such I should get for for my 'Maintenance Shed'. The response was great (I think someone mentioned they were going to print the list off & use it as a Christmas/birthday list!) and I've managed to accumulate most of the suggested tools/gadgets. As we say down here, "She'll be right Mate."

    Actually, this brings up a point to pass on to "Newbies". You're going to need to budget for the tools to maintain your rig... I remember when my manual said to torque my wheels at the 10hr. mark... I had to make a trip into town to buy a torque wrench. I use it often now.

    Mind you, the worst thing is going into the hardware shop for just ONE THING, then coming out with an armfull of things I never knew I needed!

    SingerToo, Congratulations on your new tractor! Being from Maine I recognize all the dealers you mentioned and agree they all have a great reputation. I went to Hammond Tractor to buy a Deere. Seems they sell both Deere and kubota it was nice to be able to shop and compare. After talking with the saleman, He actually talked me into the Bota. I am very happy with it and I am sure I would have been happy with the Deere also. As far as as I am concerned the color and name make no difference as long as you are happy with your purchase. I have a neighbor that bought a Deere the same day at the same dealer from the same salesman. He is very happy with his purchase also. But I will admit, we enjoy harrassing each other about our choice of brands.
    SARCASM: Just another service I have to offer!

    It only takes 1 time with a bad dealer for you to find out how important a good one is. I can testify to that. I had a case 75c (Same as a T4.75) spent more time in shop than it did in my barn, my dealer was not very helpful. Tractor is now gone, went back to my New Holland dealer.
