Everyone that has drove one really talks good about them. I will have to wait a few years for yours to get some hours and then go buy it when you trade. I just can't afford new big tractors. I did buy a new New Holland TSA115 tractor and loader this past summer. I wonder how long till CIH and New Holland get a CVTIJ Seems they are falling behind on that. Where did you trade tractors atIJ How many hours did you have on your 9785IJ I really like mine so I guess it will stay for a time. We will leave for louisville tomorrow night and be there all day Wednsday. Then we will go on to Washington DC for a few days if the weather is okay. Maybe I will see you thereIJ Ilnh
I traded at Kuhns in Arthur. It had 580 hours on it. I just made the mistake of driving one of those CVT last fall,if you dont want one ,dont drive one or you will be trading,I thought I got a good deal. Priced around and they beat everyone by 10grand.I really wasnt in the trading mood,but couldnt resist the trade difference,5 yrs newer with the CVT for under 5 thousand a year. I guess I wont see you down there I am going Thursday. IG

Will then go out to Washington DC to see the wife aunt and uncle and site seeing. Hope the VP don't shoot usIJ Sounds like you got a good deal. Your old tractor(if I can call it thatIJ) looks good yet. Not a bad price on it, $77,500. Dealer here has a demo DT240a that he may rent out. I may try that this springIJ Or he has a NH TG for rent also.
