My point is that anyone who knows a little about tractors knows that they should bash the SOS. I have a second generation SOS in my 971 that has worked very well for me for 10 years working regularly. many others with some experience with them and knowledge of the second generation SOS will even declare that they are "bullet proof". I will not go so far as to say that they are bullet proof, but I will say that from my experience and that of various others that know the difference, that there is a night and day difference between the two. I can't tell you exactly when they came out, but I can tell you that the first ones had no drain plug on the bottom but second generation ones do. As a "Ford guy" I would think that you would not want to push any more blame on Ford than they really deserve. Sure it was rushed into production early, but just as Ford has done the same thing at other times so has every other manufacturer.

Reread my post Showcrop.
I was specifically talking about the 6000.
If a machinery manufacturer put out a similarly untested, unreliable tractor today they would probably not only be paying for a lot of new trannies but also some sort of compensation for time lost due to malfunction through a class action lawsuit.
