    <font color=blue>...you can easily get into the tractor of your choice and finance what you need above the cash you have available. You could put $5,000 down on a new tractor (say 25-30 hp) and use the rest to buy the implements you need....</font color=blue>

    JINMAN,
    Sounds like some pretty good advice. Maybe I can afford one of those Kubotas after all.

    one thing u might try is , to tke a ride into some rural area's where u live. sometimes u will fing tractors out for sale, sometimes not(but worth a try) where i found my tractor was a web site www.ironsolutions.com. click on search and put in your prefernces and see what u come up with, sometimes u get lucky. just remember u may not get all that u want, but u should be able to find something decent.i personally used the STEP UP program. buy a tractor and use it, AND keep looking. when u find something better at a good price, then STEP UP and buy it, and sell the old one and then repeat the procedure.

    I'd say:
    Allis Chalmers-D17,160
    Case-430,530,1190
    David Brown-780,880,885,3600,4600
    Ford-2,3000 series
    IH-400 or 500 series
    Massey Ferguson-35,50,65,135,150,200 series
    Oliver 550
    White 1270,2-45,2-50

    If you noticed I did not list Deere. They are way too overpriced for what you get,in my opinion!!

    I'm partial but the imports have come a long way in the past few years. I've gone with Jinma. Its been sold for years under alot of different names. Alot of machine for a little $$. You can get a new one for well under $7K, under $9k with a loader.

    Welcome to the forum. I was looking for the same kind of thing. I ended up spending more, but that's another story. I did run across some useful websites. I listed them below. Good Luck!! Kent
    http://www.irondealer.com/ I think that was mentioned.
    http://www.agdealer.com/
    http://www.machinefinder.com/
    http://www.machinerylink.com/resources/uevg/default.asp
    The last one is a great place to find out if the price is right for a used tractor.

    If you still want to find a used tractor, scour the wantads of the "local" online newspapers (yahoo is normally a good place to find those urls)... Personally I think you'll find better tractors for better prices from private sales. Good deals definitely go FAST!!!!!!! After you've missed a couple, you'll learn to get there early and pull the trigger quickly...
