    If that Ford is in good shape it would be great! You could probably get a FEL for it too down the road. Sounds like a pretty complete setup.

    OK… what would work at the lower end? Just for mowing. The current owners have been using a JD LA145. It looks to be in good shape. I thought of asking what they want for it, but since they want to sell me three ton of pellets at retail price, I don’t think there’s any bargains to be had from them. Is this a total POS or can something like this ($2K new) work for mowing. That would allow me to shop around for a nice old farm tractor with a loader when one comes along cheap. After reading all the pros and cons, I really think the best thing for me may be two machines.

    If you are going with a John Deere you may want to look at one of these. Would be fast, but I don't know about the quality of the cut. ?

    Damn! I gotta have it!

    Wonder if I can make it to Sturgis with the old lady on the queen seat.
