where did everyone go? I like my mahindra but the problem is empty beer cans get in the way when clutching.
I got news for you guys...it's the *elite* Deere owners that hold all the animosity....*some* JD owners think because they own a Deere they own the best there is...("de-nile" is a river in Africa)...:laughing:
Personally, Unless I've had a previous bad experience I don't avoid any brands...I buy what suits my needs...but I don't buy overpriced equipment made with inferior steel just because it's green:D
If I had found a JD tractor that met my needs and was within my budget I would be JD owner too (and may be one someday)...but it's always fun to poke sticks at those that are so loyally biased to brands/colors...
I think if you look carefully you can see just a bit of Kobota Orange !
Do I hear 30?
I agree with the above. Sure gets tiresome and I am definately loosing interest in TBN myself. I find it harder to find threads of interest where you can learn something new and benefit by it. Most threads are rehashing the same old BS and my tractor is better than yours. I don't follow the Kubota and other brand threads closely and almost never post in those sections but I have noticed lots of these other brand followers are in the Deere threads.
Their are lots of good tractors available today by a host of manufacturers, I think people should buy what they like. With over 40 years of using tractors I know what has worked out best for me and that is Deere. I have had good luck with the Deere equipment over the years but have had other brands of good tractors too. Most people buy what works for them and if you are satisfied with it over the years it becomes your preference. I think that is where I am at and I am comfortable with the green stuff. If you prefer a different color that's cool too.
