For years, I've noticed "trends" that business's go through. The current trend seems to be: "Grab all the cash that you can before the economy collapses". I've seen others on the Nightly Business News saying the same thing. Also rumors going around that "business people" are predicting that the economy will tank in the 3rd quarter of this year - and they all want to have lots of cash by then.

All my life I've heard people talk about repairing instead of buy new. I think that the margin between repairing and buying new is getting narrower.

Not sure I agree that the margin between repairing and new is narrower. It seems like the pricing on new is continuing to grow at a "healthy" pace.

It all depends on what you're working on. I won't replace my old 4430 with a new one because it will need a hydraulic pump soon, because a new tractor would not get enough hours on it to make it pay. However, I've junked hydraulic cylinders because there have been times I've been able to buy a new one for $15 more than the repair parts for the old one would have cost, plus my labor to disassemble and reassemble.
