    Holy cowbells...

    ...are tractors expensive! I think all of you great folks on DC should donate to my new charity. It's the Timmy needs cash fund. all proceeds will go directly to a big, honking monster of a tractor.

    I take checks, PayPal and cash. Who's first?

    Know what you mean, a good bet is to keep an eye out for estate auctions sometimes you can make good deals on tractors and implements.

    Sadly, we already have one of those. Ours doesn't have the cool tires though.

    Upon closer inspection of the photo I can see that ours is different. Ours is a two speed electric transmission John Deer mud pie hauler.

    You probably mentioned it before, but how many acres are you farming?

    This is what your thread title made me think of...........



    Ya'll need lots of Cowbells to buy a tractor.

    Depending on what you need done, you can usually hire it done too. You are correct though, sir. Expensive.

    51 acres, but a good part of that is woods. About 15 acres of actual yard/field.

    I guess it depends on the price of the work. In the long run I know it will be cheaper to do it myself. I have big plans crammed into my tiny brain. : )

    Hey "Timmy" it's just a thought, but can you get by with an ATV. They're making all sorts of farm implements and attachments for ATV's now.
    Primarily for food plots, but if you're only dealing with 15acres to till/mow it might work for you.

    Look into the Ford, New Holland, Kubota models that come with a bush hog, front end loader, trailer and usually one other implement for around $20,000
