Lamborghini, Interesting, as well as some old Porsche models. I don't think it would be really suitable, but I do like old odd things.. Moving in July, have to sell the current home. Will check out the dealers in person and see what they have to offer. Kubota, and Kioti seem the front runners right now.

That’s what I would do. A tractor is pretty much a tractor. I’d get more horsepower than I thought I needed.

I bought a 2018 Branson 3725, mostly to load logs on the sawmill, get them out of the woods and move pallets of lumber. I’ve been extremely happy with it. Enough power and lift capacity for what I do.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

What I am considering the most is the mower, Mid mount vice rear tow. Other than the driveway it will be where it is used the most. Maybe get a cheaper tractor and get a zero turn mower for the "yard" Then again, in the future I may want MORE.. It is the retirement home, so I will have time to do the work. No need for something quicker, if it takes another hour or so, so be it.

Another question, would be a flail moweror a brush hog. Seems to be advantages to both.

A flail mower is slower, but will cut finer and grinds up litter. Flails are more laborious to service. A brush hog will cut saplings and small trees. A heavy hammer flail will cut saplings and small trees, but is a much more expensive implement, requiring lots more horsepower. Most heavy hammer flails are on arms, further requiring a larger tractor.

What will you be mowing?

Heavy wooded brush, the back acres have not been touched in decades. Clearing a trail or two and perhaps a food plot.

New Holland sells more tractors than any other maker in the world. There's a reason for that. Good luck in all your endeavors.


MAGAA!

You'll want a heavy duty brush hog, but you also might need someone to come in with a Fecon head (forestry mulcher).

You could also consider a heavy duty flail on a 3 point hitch, but you'd have to slowly and gingerly back through the heavy woody stuff. Your wear and maintenance will be accelerated.

I believe that the New Holland is an LS in the compact models. At least the Boomer is I believe.

Make it easy on yourself and stick with Kubota. They outsell everyone else about 10 to 1 in the US on small tractors. I personally wouldn’t worry about the emissions stuff, more power is better.

A bush hog is a basic necessity for maintaining acreage. If you want something like a flail mower then get it later, but don’t get one expecting it to do what a bush hog will.

That's a pretty fuzzy metric. As a single brand, I'd be shocked if New Holland sold more units worldwide. I'd even be surprised if CNH across brands sold the most units worldwide. 50% of the global tractor market is in India and China. India being the number one consumer and China being number two.

Orange is a great tractor, but any Kubota under 70hp is weak at the bucket/pivot, deal breaker for me with cows and hay to hoist.

Your results may vary...

Mahindra sells the most tractors worldwide. Deere is 2nd. 50% of all tractors produced in the world are sold in India.
New Holland is way down the line.

If Mahindra brings this to the US market, I’d take one.

Bet that little pickup would beat the hell out of one of those overpriced Jeep “pickups”. And be much cheaper to boot !

Be sure you have a solid dealer nearby, regardless if you buy new or used.

They all break and the one who can get parts quickest is the one you need in your corner, even if you use a side mechanic.

I have a mechanic who was John Deere trained, worked for the dealer for years, now has his own shop. Find that guy in your area and go talk to hiim.

Sometimes those guys know of a good tractor someone is wanting to sell, may have kept that tractor serviced for years. Never know until you ask.

We have a 22horse massey 4wd. We have just under 100 acres and the biggest problem I have is the weight of the tractor. We have the tiller, 48" brush hawg, back blade, and a 48" snowblower along with the bucket. The light weight is my achilles.

I don't like the hydro tranny either. luckily we got a bobcat 324 mini excavator that makes up for the short comings of the tractor.

Our massy is the 1705 model and with the whole hindsight thing we should have gone bigger
