    Thanks guys, I haven't started back shopping real serious yet but hopefully next week will allow some time for that. I do plan on keeping the b7100, but I may sell one of the others. The ford needs a clutch so the new tractor will be my only loader tractor for a while. I'll probably look for another Deere dealer and try to look closer at the 5e tractors too but I'm leaning kubota.

    Well I went a different direction alltogether. I found a nice low hour Ford 3930 4wd with shuttle and loader. Just got it home, I'll try to post pics later tonight. It's much heavier built than anything else I've looked at new, the thing's a beast!

    Looks like a good straight tractor.

    Thanks guys I feel like I made a good choice, and yes it cost a TON less than the new ones. Toting that note would have been a burden honesty.
    But just having the shuttle will be a real nice improvement for me and if the clutch ever needs work it will be cheap compared to the hydro shuttle. I don't think I need to load the tires on this one either!
