It really depends on the situation. We farm a good amount of ground and put 5-800 hours on our tractors a year. For the longest time we had 2-4850s and a 4840 for the planting, graincart, side-dressing, etc and a newer 4wd for heavy tillage. We worked on everything ourselves and it seems like we were always doing something to them. Granted, they pulled more modern equipment which more than likely worked them alot harder than the equipment they were meant for.

Now we don't use any of those tractors much any more and could not be happier. We rarely have to work on anything and our productivity is alot better than before. Not to mention with nicer cabs and controls we can work longer hours and alot more of them and get everything planted in a timely matter with maybe some time to spare to do a little custom work.

Electronics are alot more reliable than most people realize. Just think how old some of these electronic combines and tractors are now and they are still operating just fine. Everyone thought it was the end of the world when the 9000 series combines came out, guess what, most of them are still running strong.

With that being said I still enjoy hoping on a 4020 in the summer to rake hay or grind feed, kinda hard to beat that.
