    Default A rather big repair job!

    I know this isn't really a compact tractor, but it certainly is a repair story [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I dunno what the car looked like, but I know which vehicle I would have wanted to be in!

    MetalChicken,

    That is a very nice series of photos and a job well done!

    I got curious and looked at you profile, as it's been my impression that land in England is very expensive. I guessed that with two large tractors you had lots of it. I see you have five acres, and guess I'll have to add you to my list of examples of how it tractor size really depends on the owner and what he wants. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Still, I wonder if you use your tractors to work land other than you own... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    hi Henro,
    Thanks for the comments. You're right, land is expensive here and it is a big tractor for what I need, but the total cost of the tractor was low [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    You're thoughts made me think that others may be interested in the basic tractor usage differences between the UK and US so I've put my thoughts in this post on the owning/operating forum.

    Right now I only do my own work, but would very much like to start a sideline of cutting other peoples paddocks at some time in the future. Much more fun than my computer business [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Oh yes, and I will be selling my 484 sometime soonish as I really can't justify two tractors!
