I understand that you can almost never, in resale, get back all the money you spend on upgrading old equipment. Any guesses in how much more, if any, someone may pay for an older tractor with hydraulic remotes than one without? I can balance that with the added convenience of being able to do more with this tractor.
The main application that I'd like to use it for is to pull a v-rake. Right now, I usually have to rake and bale using the same tractor, while the MF65 is just parked. If I can pull the rake with the MF65, I can save time by not having to unhook the rake to start baling (or someone can start baling while someone else is still raking), which could be valuable if rain is coming.
I thought about just selling this tractor and looking for one that already has the remotes, but I kind-of know what I've got with this tractor.
