    How large of a frame do you want? That is kind of a broad question. You said feature packed so I would consider the JD 5E Limited series which has 80-101 hp. JD 5M series with 65-101 hp. JD 6030 series with 95-125 hp. These would be considered medium and large frame utility tractors. The JD 6D series has 99-138 hp but not as feature packed. The JD 5Case-IH equivalent would be the Farmall 85-105U series with 85-105 hp. (Previous JXU series).

    Next would be the small frame ag tractors such as the JD small frame 7030 series with 125-180 hp. The Case-IH equivalent would be the Maxxum series 110-140 hp. The Maxxum line has small frame of 110, 115, 120 and 130 with same hp. Maxxum large frame has the 125 and 140 with same hp. The Maxxum has Pro models of each which has more features and options. Case-IH also makes the Puma line 115 and 125 models with the same hp. The Puma lines has the nicer powershift tranny.

    I have a Case-IH Maxxum 125 Pro. Basic tractor is around 12,000 lbs. With loader and weights, is closer to 16,000 lbs. Love it but may be too big for you.

    You can see why your question is kind of broad. Need to know more what you want to use it for. There are other JD tractors in the 5 series but are basic tractors. Then there is the kubota line and NH lines. NH lines are nearly the same tractor as Case-IH. There are almost no Kubota dealers in the larger tractors in my state. I have no knowledge of the MF line. I would not have any problem buying JD or Case-IH. Have had both. JD tends to $$ more for similar tractor.
