Used to be there wasn't any kiddy junk. It was all the same high quality toys. I don't know why people think kids today shouldn't have the same quality toys that we had? Throw away society I guess. I still have this one and almost every other one I ever got too.

I wish things would go back to the quality of the one you got there . They are adding more detail now than before but they aren't meant to farm with like the one in the pic . They should start and run for the price they charge now days ! Picked up a 1/64 scale 4 row planter it was almost 9 bucks I remember when stuff like that was 75 cents

Ya,this stuff just got so out of hand,I started collecting the real thing instead. I can still tell you the tractor that destroyed my interest. I wanted to have all of the 2 Cylinder Club tractors as they came out. By about the third or fourth one the price went from $40 to $100. I bought one,but came home from that show so disgusted I was ready to throw all of them on a wagon and put it in the front yard with a for sale sign on it. That was the last 2 Cylinder Club tractor I bought and I've bought darned few of any kind since. If I find something old for a good price I'll pick it up,otherwise,forget it.

I love my toy tractors to much to give up entirely but you're right a guy can buy an old piece of equipment for what these toys cost I usually spend about 2500 bucks a year on toy tractors but I've started slowing down I need to put the money into my showroom . I've been trying to get most of the foxfire farm series and I have a 20 of the original precision series and a couple of the key series I'm not sure about this new precision series .

I'm pretty much running out of space anyway unless I put up a separate building.
