    Default How many people own more than one brand of tractor

    I was wondering how many folks are color blind and own more than one brand of tractor and how do they like them. Any all around favorite from your stable?
    I have LS P7010C, kubota B26and John Deere 332 garden tractor. My brother in law has John Deere 750 and New Holland T2310. I cant find any one thing that makes one brand better than the other. Mine are all totally different so uses are different so my favorite depends on what chore I am doing, but if I had to keep only one it would be the B26 for the backhoe and it being very easy to maneuver. I like the LS when moving heavy loads of dirt and when like last week, dragging over a big 3' diameter oak tree that had blown over and held in the air about 15 feet by some large limbs. No way the B26 would do that chore. The one thing that I dislike on any tractor is fixed width of wheels. Some like my B26 have a fixed width and not adjustable without expensive spacers and then only by a few inches and not sure that would even be allowed due to the back hoe weight. Wheel spacing is not much of an issue till you start trying to use cultivators or disc hippers to make rows for gardens etc. and then the CUT's are normally too narrow to straddle 2 rows and too wide for just one.

    My off-road fleet consists of a green Montana 2740 for most of the smaller stuff, a yellow IH 3414 for the heavier wheel tractor things, a red IH TD-14 dozer for clearing and rough stuff, a yellow and green Yanmar B27-2B excavator for cleanup, digging stumps and burying my mistakes, and a green Craftsman 22hp garden tractor and a red Crafsman 21hp to take care of the yard.....Dan.

    Ford 3000-Rhino 554,Co-Op ,Honda ,Gilson riding mowers

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

    I started with the Ford 3000 selectospeed it's my favorite for rough cut mowing ,loader speed(17+ gallon per min. vane pump), The 554 Rhino more powerful, dual remotes Quasi quick attach/grapple, suspension seat and 4x4 for loader digging. Mowers 2 hydrostatatics the Co-Op(MTD) flat out kicks the Honda's u know what ,it's much smoother doesn't jerk back and forth,rear discharge ,smoother riding and parts aren't outragous the good old Gilson belt drive, even cutting

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

    Across the farms we run the "rainbow" of brands, following are our current ag tractors (& excluding earthmoving gear):-

    McCormick TMax 110HP
    Landini 2x Powerfarm 110 FEL
    Daedong (Kioti) DK1002 100hp FEL 4/1
    Phillips 3x Acremasters 330hp
    Phoenix Acremaster 330hp
    Steiger CP1400 400hp
    Steiger 425hp
    JD6030 212hp
    Versatile 835 230hp
    MF1805 x2 200hp
    Mercedes MB1500 FEL & Blade 150hp
    Mercedes MB1500 FEL 150hp
    Mercedes MB1300 FEL $ Blade 130hp
    Mercedes MB1300 Blade 130hp
    Mercedes MB800x2 80hp
    Austrak RT45 x2 4x4 Fel/BH— 65hp
    Case Agriking 1370 165hp
    Deutz DX230FWA 230hp
    Deutz DX140FWA 140hp
    JD 8440 215hp
    New Holland T8050 325hp
    New Holland TJ450HD 450hp
    IH1486FWA 150hp
    White 2-135 150hp
    White 2-155 160hp
    White 4-150 150hp
    White 4-225 230hp
    Allis 7580 4WD 220hp
    Allis 7045 2WD 170hp
    Belarus 1770 165hp
    Belarus 1500 150hp
    Fiat 780DT FEL 75hp
    JD415 CUT 200hrs 15hp
    JD LT155 1070hrs 15hp
    Iseki TX2160 2600hrs 18hp
    kubota B7100HST FEL/BH 18hp
    Kubota B7100HST FEL/BH 18hp
    Case 4890 300hp
    Case STX535 535hp
    Case STX530AC 530hp

    Hard to pick a "favourite", though I'll settle for all above 150hp that have done 10,000hrs or more without incidental breakdowns/cost.
    So my favourites by hp range:
    less the 50hp = Iseki TX2160
    50-110hp = the Daedong DK1002 (we'll be buying more ) or the Fiat780DT
    110 -180hp = any/all the White's
    180 - 250hp = the old Allis 7580 or Deutz DX230FWA or for a 2WD the JD6030
    250hp &up = the Acremasters hands down
    If I could only have 1xTractor it'd be close between the Mercedes MBTrac1300 4x4, the Fiat780DT or in hill country the Austrak
    And my least favourite brand = A toss of the coin betwwen New Holland & Case (try finding a mechanic who is capable on recent models..), least favourite tractor is my JD8440.. (too costly to buy/run & maintain from new)
