This was posted a wile ago for any size tractors, but if you were going to get a full size tractor, and cost, and a place to use it were not a factor, what would you get?

Me? I would probably pick up an older MF165. Why? Well, I like the old MF tractors, have heard great things about them, and have a real good dealer near by. Now for my use a 165 is a little over kill, a 135 would be perfict, but we are talking anything, so sence bigger is better, the 165 would be for me.

Well you can't beat a 444 IH with a stick, but just for fun, I'd love to have one of those STX 440 Quadra-Trac CASE-IH tractors. Got a 440 HP Cat engine and 4 tracs instead of tires. We wouldn't even have room to turn it around here, but one of them could make it's own path!!!:lmao:

I like the John Deere 5520 for a smaller practical tractor and the 8520 for a larger row crop tractor. A 9520 would cool but what would you do with such a large tractor unless you have 1,000's of acres to farm. Does a 710-G count? :thumbsup:

Chief

If you could buy a Big tractor like a 9520,you buy a piece of land to play on.

If I had the money. I'd get a Deere 4410 4WD with front mounted snowblower and a heated cab, unless Deere makes a larger tractor with a front mounted snowblower. I am so sick of winter and snow, I want a machine that will make it fun.:)

John Deere makes the 4710 that will handle a front snow blower as well. They are real nice with the Curtis Cab, heater, A/C, and all the goodies! :thumbsup: Depending on how much snow and other chores you have in mind; the 4710 might be a bit large and over kill. I like that kind of over kill! :cool:

Pardon me for dragging up and old post...

I'd like a fully restored Model B John Deere like my Grandpa had years ago. He was a row cropper, Cotton and soybeans. I was little and I used to carry him out a quart jar of cold water... long time ago.

Or (a little newer) a 4040 JD. I'd like any number of early MF's.

No problem, Bring up any old post you want. Thata why there all there. Plus back at the start, there was not many people here, well, now that the numbers are getting bigger, there is a chance you can help/get help from those old posts.

Well as many all ready know I run a 9400 Deere earlier version of a 9520.But I do not own it I work for a 4600 acre farm family.They are in the process of ordering a 9520.Should have one this fall coming fall.It takes awhile to get them before you order one.The 9520 will be set up like the 9400 except it will have power shift.They will keep the 9400 and trade in there 8960.

However my dad and my self farm 240 acres we farm with a 1975 Ford 9600 and a Allis Chalmers one ninety XT.However we just added to are line with a IH3788 2+2 4 wheel drive articulated tractor.It is in very good shape but the ugly look like an ant eater.There was a local farmer we knew who retired and he took very good care of him equipment.So we planned all winter to buy this tractor it became a reallity a few days ago.Go it home today and will take a few pictures tommorow if someone would like to see our new baby.It is not a 9520 or the 9400 I operate.However this baby is ours.My dad is 76 years old still gets around like a 26 year old however.Hard to keep up with him most days.Dad will be running this tractor while I plant with the Ford.Dad does not plant now days he gave that job up at 73.Stay tuned for pictures.

Post away JD. I would love to see a picture. How about one of the Ford also?? A lot of us are filmilure with the L&G stuff, and also a lot of the vintage, and compact stuff, but for me anyway, I know NOTHING about the modern, big iron. Lets see them pictures, and if you have any specs on it also, that would be cool.:)

The picture came out dark I will have to take a better out side picture when I get a chance.But this is a picture of the new baby.It is a 1983 3788 2+2 with 170hp last of the International IH line before they merged with Case to become Case IH.
