    B2410 vs. B7610

    I have been reading the specs on both of these and they seem to have the same engine. Looks like the 7610 is just a spartan 2410. Is this correct? The price difference is less than 2k.

    TC24 vs. DX 24

    Sorry if someone else has already made this comparison, but what is the difference besides paint? I looked at both the New Holland and Case-IH recently and the NH is 3k less.

    Tires  Loading Tires

    I am going to have my tires loaded because frankly, the weight box is a pain in the petoot. Should I get tubes too? I am thinking that I will not be happy if I spend $240 to get my tires loaded an then the tire breaks a bead and my calcium runs out on the ground. Quote for tubes and...

    Trading Tractors

    Just wondering; Did you trade in your machine because you needed something different, or because you were bored with what you had? I am thinking that in my case it's both.

    Chipper  DR Chippers $1499

    I just noticed that Country Home has these on sale. They are refurbished. I saw that a JD dealer in Fairfield has them for $1800 & something new. The salesman said he had sold a couple and the new owners were pleased. I only have a half acre or so to clear out and I don't want to spend a...

    Can't quite make up my mind...

    Can\'t quite make up my mind... John Deere dealer insulted me with their trade-in offer ($6500)for my Cub. Kubota dealer offered me close to Blue Book ($10,500)on it. That pretty much narrowed down my color choice. I know that I want an L-series 4WD. I am comparing the L-3130 vs. the 2800 &...

    I have been thinking about upsizing a little. The Farmi winch is a little heavy for my Cub Cadet. Wheelies on motorcycles are cool. Wheelies on tractors are not.

    What Ever Happened to Mid-Mount Implements Anyway?

    My Farmall manual has a whole list of mid-mount implements that were designed for it in the 50's. They include: planter, mower, grader blade, cultivators, hiler, etc. Most any tractor (that I have seen) of this vintage had some mid-mount attachments made for it. How many can you get now? A...

    Anyone have much luck w/ 3PT cultivators? I had a set given to me, but it's hard to watch where you are driving and watch the cultivators at the same time. I have noticed that the seat on my Cub Cadet is almost too far down and forward to watch a rear implement closely.

    Did you buy your tractor out of need or want?

    I bought my Farmall because at the time, I was living on the farm and I needed it for mowing/raking/tedding/hauling wagons, etc. I bought my Cub Cadet because I was getting married and I wanted it before I had to explain and/or fabricate reasons why it was needed

    Which attachmant do you use the most? Favorite?

    Who Makes a Good Walk Behind Self Propelled Mower?
