    Default JD 5085M vs NH 4.85 vs Case 85C

    I have a small (80 acre) farm that is mostly tillable and another almost the same size that has become overgrown. I am renting the tillable land currently. I am planning to start rowcroping on my own. I will hire/ sharecrop the combine work. I am planning g to buy a new or slightly used utility tractor to for all but the combining tasks. To include making hay (small bales for horses).

    My research has led me to a new or slightly used 85 horse utility tractor. I am looking at JD 5085M vs NH 4.85 vs Case 85C. Any recommendations, experience or advice is welcome.;

    I found open station JD 6x15 series selling cheaper than 5000M series. Seems when they get that big everyone wants cabs. I bought a JD6415. They were sold as an economy version of the 6x20 series.
