I don't know where you are located but many places 80-100 H.P. tractors of that vintage are surprisingly cheap, if they are not John Deere that is, the reason is because of fuel consumption and demand, though the 4010 is not bad on fuel compared to the older 4020's. Craaigslist has plenty of Case, MM, Allis Chalmers, there is a world of them out there low houred ready to go,I paid $4250 for a Case 1070 with cab last year that is now hooked to my round baler.

I should look at other brands, not familiar with Case or Massey"s but the dealerships for anything I can find parts for are all within 2 miles of each other and all 40 miles away. I quess I"m not really looking at all right now. Was skimming through tractor the other day and found this one locally and got me thinking if maybe trading was a better plan than limping along on what I"ve got. I quess I wanted opinions/experience on limping verses a small amount of debt while trading up(meaning anything comparable that"s less worn out).

d, I am sympathetic to your problem. I upgraded this year. Even though my tractor was dependable and never let me down, the heat this year got me to thinking about forty year old hoses on the hydrdalics and cooling system components. It got me to thinking that if it let me down while I had hay down this could mess me up bad. And I must admit that newer A/C is wonderful compared to just keeping sweat from running down your back..

I got an o8" T5060 New Holland it is a 105 HP tractor, but I think those horses must be shetlands, its just not the horse my Massey was..

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

But the shetlands require "less feed" than the draft horses to appease the Government. :wink:
