    We plan to always rake up big/the most hours on select newer gear which is transported from farm to farm, the enables much higher than average utilisation for regular updating to the latest & greatest(??) to keep pace with seasonal changes/opportunity in our farming operations, so there's usually 5 or more tractors replaced each year - for example the McCormick & the Landini's purchased in 2011 will be replaced this year (with 3x Daedong's & probably 2x Deutz's), as will the (broadacre) 2006 Case STX530 & 2009 NH T8050 for two large hp row crop machines.....& we also schedule rebuilds on our older gear to keep them reliable.so we need a few "clunkers" around.....for practical (& sentimental) reasons.(+with no ECU's/computers they're a piece of cake to work on & to wind up the hp easily ..)

    Default Re: How many people own more than one brand of tractor

    I have a kubota L3400 hst with a loader and a 5083E with a loader. The kubota does the daily chores and the john deere gets the heavy work (round and square bale moving) brush hogging (10') Pulling vehicles out. I love doing little jobs with the HST though, boy is that nice not having to throw gears.

    I gotta lean towards the cab though. This is my first cabbed machine with A/C and boy is that nice when its 90* out!

    Kubota, John Deere, Case, Massey Ferguson, Ford

    Default Re: How many people own more than one brand of tractor

    Case, John Deere, Ford, kubota, Massey Ferguson and my brother owns a new Kioti I like. I mostly run Kubota now as they are the ones with cabs and really don't have a favorite, different size for different things.

    Fortunately or unfortunately I find I pretty much like them all and even though I doubt I will buy another I find myself driving through all the dealer lots from time to time.

    Kubota MX5100F IH McCormick Farmall 140, Massey Ferguson 135

    Default Re: How many people own more than one brand of tractor

    I have a kubota MX5100F and a Farmall 140 (was FIL's). My BIL keeps the Massey Ferguson 135 (was FIL's) and he has a Kubota m5700 4wd. He lives around the corner and we share equipment as needed.

    My favorite is the 1962 Farmall. It is a workhorse but is the ideal garden tractor. Gardening is about all this machine does other than occasionally pulling a cultipacker. I am afraid it needs a head gasket but am sure it will be well worth the fix. My second favorite is the MX5100. It compliments the Farmall well.

    The 135 is a great tractor. Since 1972 it has been restored twice - it still is a working tractor mostly for teddering and raking hay.

    The M5700 is a good machine for its purposes - mostly baling hay and loader work cleaning the feed barn.

    Deere 317 & L118

    Default Re: How many people own more than one brand of tractor

    I used to be color blind, right now I have 2 Deere's. Here is what I have had over the past few years:

    Tractors:
    1st tractor: Yanmar YM169D (16 hp, if I ever get the chance to get another Yanmar I will, they are awesome tractors)(sold)
    2nd tractor: Simplicity 9518 (18 hp, it was a project that ended up getting to expensive so it was sold)

    Skid Steer:
    1st skid steer: Deere 317 (61 net hp, with counter weight kit it is rated to lift 2100 lbs )(this is my current machine)

    Riding Mowers:
    1st riding mower: Allis Chalmers 712 (I think)(scrapped)
    2nd riding mower: John Deere L118 (current machine)
    3rd riding mower: Allis Chalmers 610 (dropped a new engine in it, sold)
    4th riding mower: Simplicity 738 (sold with the 610)
    5th riding mower: Simplicity 5008 (parted out, sold parts with the 610)
    6th riding mower: Craftsman 917.270780 (fixed up and sold)
    7th riding mower: Sears 10/30 (scrapped)
    8th riding mower: Simplicity 6108 (sold)

    For being a 17 year old kid I have had quite a bit of machinery so far.
    My Fleet:
    2004 Deere 317 Skid Steer Loader
    66" Construction bucket, imatch QA adapter, CU72 Jake Rake, Middle Buster, 60" Landscape rake, 54"x 48" Pallet forks

    Kubota L4610 and John Deere 410

    Default Re: How many people own more than one brand of tractor

    I have a kubota L4610 and a John Deere 410 backhoe. Certainly two different machines. There is nothing about either one that makes it good or bad from a design standpoint. From a personal preference standpoint though, I don't like the HST pedal on the Kubota, but that is purely personal opinion.

    I'm very happy with both. I'd like my next tractor to be a Case 75C (identical to the New Holland T4.75). I'm the opposite of color blind, I don't like having two of the same makes, not just in tractors/machinery but also other things.
