    jimotis4heisman mentioned he'd like a thread on favorite tractors so thought I'd start one.

    Favorite Farming tractor: John Deere followed by Ford.

    Lawn Tractor: For big yards: Kubota

    Normal yards: Cub Cadet or any Tractor with Briggs and Stratton engine.

    Power tools, home improvement projects and now tractors...I'm not sure there are three subjects I know any less about.

    ...it's getting harder and harder around here for a guy to pad his posts before he goes back to work. :biggrin2:

    I grew up on a farm where everything was John Deere. Thump, I know you didn't have much luck with John Deere lawn tractors, but our 316 lawn mower was great.

    My favorite model of tractor that I have driven is the 9400:

    Though my dad's new toy is pretty cool:

    Nice choices, however, A Kohler engine blows a Briggs out of the water.

    Be cautious about John Deere lawn tractors. Now that they have allowed places such as Home Depot to sell them, they are some quality issues with the newer lawn tractors.

    Farmalls are the best. We have about 8 of them.

    I don't know a damn thing about tractors, but that is one sweet machine.
     
  9. ill go with late 40s mccormick farmall cub a [​IMG]

    brand wise-john deere they run better and are easier to fix.

    my point of the old john deere lawn tractors (1xx,2xx,3xx,4xx series) being the shit and the new stuff(lx,gx,lt, gt) being shitty seems to be carrying weight.

    My grandpa had an old tricycle Farmall that we used for raking hay.

    My Dad had 2 Farmalls, an "M" and a "Super M". Both 40's era, they were a little underpowered but damn reliable.

    Exactly the same here!! :wink2:

    By the way, did you ever have any luck with Massey-Fergusons?

    Never had one, Dad has an 80's Case 90 horse, forget the model #. but no massy's. I do dig some Massey's pizza now and again though.
