    Income Taxes: Turbo Tax - H&R Block - File Your Own?

    Well I'm on the fence to continue paying our tax guy $250 again for what is now a very simple return. I just did it by hand using the 1040 .pdf file and know what the results should be. I've always done my own but the past 20 years we have used her family friend tax guy and the bill was $340...

    Retirement Planning - Lessons Learned

    I could not find a SS calculator that I liked for age comparisons so I made my own for "Dick" ad "Jane". Most people will be in their late 70's before cumulative earnings even out when comparing SS at 62, 65, 67, and 70.

    Tractor Sales In This Volatile Market

    What do you guys think? Will dealers soon be begging you to come buy and offer great deals on current inventory? OR Will dealers hold out for the better price being unsure when their inventory will be replenished? I think we can agree the economy is getting ready to take a hard hit, just...

    SCUT with AG Tires Question

    YES. another AG vs R4 tire thread. I was comparing tires at the MF dealer recently and he had identical SCUTS with R4's and AG tires. I wish I would have looked at the brand a little more closely now. I know people say AG for best traction, but these AG tires did not look aggressive at all...

    Compact Tractor Financing Comparison - Hopefully this helps someone

About 3 ways to buy a tractor looks like. DON'T be sold on the 0%, it's a gimmick and always will be. Obviously paying cash and finding the...

    Used SCUT TLB Market: Massey and Kubota With Pricing

    Did this just for fun and I know it has been discussed here. Obviously most people are upside down on their 0% financing deals when trying to sell and the ones that are many years old have really high pricing. All the more reason to buy new. I would also think that most people that have $15-20k...

    Test Drive Massey Ferguson GC1723E/GC1725M

    Great feedback, keep it coming. I stopped by my local dealer yesterday just kicking the tires, mainly to look at a used 2018 GC1710 TLB he had for sale for $13,900 with 188 hours on consignment, pic attached. Salesman and I talked before looking at the GC1725M's he had on the lot, basically...

    Test Drive Massey Ferguson GC1723E/GC1725M

    Here is recent review for these models. Somewhat long and may not be useful to anyone but a non owner like me. Looks like the biggest complaint was steering and control levers are tight for a big man's comfort. So for the GC owners, what are your complaints with your units.... Thanks

    2014 Review: Kubota BX25D vs. Massey GC1710 TLB's

    I was in the market back then but never made a purchase. This review material I created is 4.5 years old but may still be of use for someone today, I was unable to attach this PDF file back then. It may also create some discussion for what has changed on these models since 2014. I'm...

    Craftsman Briggs 14.5 HP Engine Surging at Full Thottle

    I am looking for reviews from owners of the GC2410 and the newer GC1710 series SCUT's and want to know how it has served you as far as service needs since you bought it. If you don't have a backhoe unit that is fine, still looking for info on the base unit. Tell what you like, don't like...

    SCUT: Massey / Iseki vs. Kubota / Kubota

    I have to ride past a MF dealership on the way to look at Kubotas where I am comparing the GC1710 to a BX25D. Has anyone looked at both of these in person before buying and did anyone go with the MF? I have now ridden both at the dealerships. In my mind Kubota is king for SCUT's but this Massey...

    BX25 Quality Issues

    Looking at BX25D at the dealer yesterday and noticed a bad 12-18" of weld on the backhoe. My flip phone pics will not do it justice and if it had a good coat of paint on it it wouldn't be noticed, weld located to the bottom side of the large Kubota decal. My past job experience tells me most...
