/ I did it. Roast and discuss my choice. (sharing experience + numbers for others) #31
My GC1705 wants to grow up big and strong like the 4707. Good choice!As title suggests, I did it. I bought a tractor and paid far more money than I ever thought I would for something that isn't real estate. After many hours of reading, test driving, calling, and spitballing on what I should get I landed on the Massey 4707.
931 loader with soft drive
30 inch rears
60k even, delivered.
For reference, my main goal with this is to put a massive snowblower on the back and keep my driveway clear. I have a 500ft drive and the drifts are terrible where I am at. Secondary goals are driveway maintenance, pasture fence maintenance/moving, and managing 30 acres of pasture. I currently rent out my crop land but that might change in the future. Potentially could get into making hay to sell. Land is fairly level.
I'm a suburban dude who just wants to be comfortable while doing work outside. How did I do for a first time buyer?
