I bought my 1570 Case several years ago for $2200 with a spun rod brg. I did the work myself and ended up with a good running 200hp tractor for around $4500. Bought a 2590 Case last fall with a C-3 clutch problem in the power shift for $3500. If there are not any other problems in the ps $2500 will go along way. So if I can get it going for a total investment of $6000 that would make both of them cheap power.

And if you only need a tractor that big to run,say,a chopper and a chisel plow,but it's too big for the planter,grain drill,sprayer,haybine,round baler,grinder mixer and manure spreader,what's the point praying at the alter of the Deere and spending $30,000 for the same power to do a few jobs? Once the silo is filled and the tractor is just sitting in the shed the rest of the year,as long as the cattle are eating,it doesn't matter what put the feed there.

And as far as the whole "I can get parts for Deere",well good for anybody who says so. Mother Deere left some huge holes in her new improved dealer network though and I'm dead center in the middle of one. If you want to be broke down for a week to ten days,break something green and yellow around here.

as long as you can get enough dsl. fuel for a deere, the 30/40 series had atrocious fuel consumption and no low end torque

Hi It don"t matter if it"s Deere or Agco equipment round us the parts system is messed up right from the Manufacturers. we have plenty of independant not all one group dealers for both, and still a pain in the A#$ to get some stuff.
