I sometimes tell folks to look at the attachments they want before they buy the tractor. At least that way, a thou, or two difference in tractor price doesn't seem so bad! :D :D

The hard part for a new tractor owner is waiting for the bank account to refill enough to be able to get the next implement. Not that I know anyone in that situation or anything....

That's what I'm working on at present. When I mentioned to my wife the other day that I really needed a new sprayer for the L4740 and that it would be nice if Santa brought me a little backhoe for the B2400 her only comment was that, "It would be nice if you had someplace to store all that junk away from the house". So, I'm taking that as her voicing her approval and I've started research on a storage building/pole barn .... prior to getting the other stuff.

Besides, it's an obsession, not a hobby and it's difficult address the financial aspects when you're a little unstable.

Tractoritis is insidious and pervasive :eek:. There is no known cure, but it can be managed with difficulty. Jay :D
