The guy is in no rush to sell it, I think I will pass on it for now. I need to make room inside for the rest of my stuff. Matt will still have it in the spring.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

So let me get this straight. Not sure if you should buy a $900.00 M that you can drive down the road in road gear. Please, Please, Please buy it. :tractor:

Word. I have never let a little thing like shelter space hold me back!

That would be a 2500 dollar tractor here.....

I’m thinking it would be where he is too.
I’m sure he’s getting the first cousin discount.
Anyone else would pay up.

Na. Don't do it. Probably have to pay personal property tax on the tractor and another piece of machinery for your family to include in the estate sale.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Actually, Eugene, here in Ohio, we don't have that pesky personal property tax on such possessions. If we did, Bill would have been in trouble long ago.

My first farm "job" included driving wagons from the field to the barn. The boss bought a new (used) combine and wanted to see what it could do. Well, this field was 2 miles from the farm and he was filling up the combine and wagons faster than I could transport and empty them.
After exhausting other options to speed things on the JD 2510 like pulling the throttle knob out to get a few extra RPM's, he told me to swap tractors.

Go get the beautifully restored wide front Super MTA. Man that tractor would FLY!

I was trying to be funny. Some times it works, other times not so much.

Missouri, we have to list ag machinery on our holdings for personal property tax. My antique working tractors, I pay a couple dollars a year property tax for each tractor. Enough on taxes.

Son and I are considering purchasing a 3-point back hoe and a larger tractor. Considering an M to carry the back hoe.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I'll add my encouragement to pull; will give you a good excuse to build a barn.

No more barns allowed.

You need a reason beyond this?
Seems like you’ve made the most convincing argument for bringing it home. ;)



I second this .
