There are better tractors out there...
Here is onehttp://seattle.craigslist.org/est/grd/4135997723.html
Here is what I like (860 and 861). 5 speed and live PTOhttp://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/grd/4146667558.html
And for $1600 more you get substantially more tractor...http://seattle.craigslist.org/est/grd/4152002116.html
That took me less than 5 minutes to find some other options. Don't be dazzled by fancy paint, you can always do that to one of these ones in need of paint. Some lookalike they have been painted a couple times.
So my advice is go for a 8xx or 4000 series. More tractor, same size. 5 speed and live PTO are nice to look for also. This post was edited by cbrown9064 at 22:33:45 10/28/13.
