well being a realist, I would like to move up to a MF135. Wold nicely fit my needs, and something that there is a CHANCE of me affording. If I had the money to spend, I would like to have one of the 1400 seires MF compacts.

A Deere 435 diesel with cat "0" 3 point, or an early 1980s Power King with an 18 HP motor and the dual transmissions and 3 point hitch.

I would like to have a old late 20's Rumely Oil-Pull just because you don't see that many of them and i like the way they look.

If we are opening up to more then one. I am still looking for a late 50's early 60's Homelite GT that I used as a kid. Been looking for years but never found one.

The Holy Grail Tractor?

Everyone so for has given the wrong answer. :) There is only one tractor that can live up to this description, has to be a John Deere 4020. It is large enough to do everything except plow up the largest of farms. Small enough to be used to cultivate. Restoring one wouldn’t cost much more than buying a new tractor. There are enough around that one can still be had. They are/were popular enough in their time that they are becoming collector items today.

Here is a picture of what one should look like. This is not mine, but I do wish I had one like it.

John, the 4000 55 Series tractors are the final and most updated version of the 4000 20 Series tractors. Which was discontinued after 1992.

Here is another nice 4255. I like the 4 post ROPS and the 466 cubic inch engine was a sweet motor. The 4020 is the one that started the popularity of these machines and is an icon for Deere.
