    I say test drive them all, then decide that's how I picked mine. All dealers are a PITA anyway so after the warranty is out you wont want anything to do with them.

    One option I find very important on a tractor with a back-hoe , is having only one seat that turns instead of having to change seat when operating the back-hoe. Also the boom must swing 90 degrees each sides. Good luck .

    LS is definitely still building their dealer network....looks like their only NH dealer is in New Boston.

    Thanks for all the help and advice. I decided to go with the Deere.

    I did check out the LS (the dealer listed was a guy at his house selling out of his backyard) and I was leaning toward the Massey initially, until I went to the dealer and found that to match the Deere package the two were the same price but the Massey couldnt take a backhoe.

    Delivery is Monday and I am praying it doesnt snow too much between now and then because I sold my snowblower!! It's kind of like a late christmas
