    We go a 5075e 4x4 with the largest loader and bucket that fits. A 5’ offset harrow. For 40k I think 0% apr. 4 year warranty. I’ll have to look if that does not sound right.

    Don't over look older model tractors. I bought a 1961 MF 35 for $2500 with a 6' finishing mower. Turned around and sold the mower for $500 and put it towards other implements. So far I have already prepared about 10 acres to plant. MF 35, 135 and Ford 3000s are great tractors that will handle what you want to do without going in debt.

    You also need to check with your local nrcs for funding you might qualify. We did and it paid for the tractor and more.

    No doubt. Probably the route I will go!

I grew up on an H with the two tires close together on the front. I laugh at my 7 year old driving the tractor with power steering. He has no idea how good he has it.

    Smaller tractors can do more than most give them credit for. And if you are going to be doing small foodplots and trails in the woods you might not want a big tractor.

    Eff a bush hog. Worst thing for a quail or turkey.

    It will be sitting quietly in the barn then BAM! May hits and all of a sudden you have an overwhelming urge to go mow down all your brood habitat. Next thing you know it’s the end of September and BAM! You have an overwhelming urge to go mow down your escape cover right before the hawk migration.

    Thank goodness for that bush hog now you’ve got a neat and tidy farm.

    It's amazing how much people used to do with less

    Dad has the SuperM, I had a sweet little SuperC that I regret selling.
    Both of them are tricycle front end. Right after I first got the superC I took it to a property to scratch up some food plots. I was loading it back on the trailer and had a chisel plow behind it. Anyway I had it sitting on the trailer and looked behind me as I was easing the plow down and throttled down a bit. I was about to hop off and strap her down but there was a problem. I never her took her out of gear. Soon as I left off the clutch she hopped up and rode over the winch on front of the trailer, over the metal bar behind the winch, over the toolbox on the tongue (crushing the lid in the process) and about the time I locked her down the front end came to rest with the tricycle front end straddling the jack. I was about a foot away from loading it up in the bed of my truck. Anyhow, I looked around an assessed the situation and decided there was only one thing to do. I was afraid to get down off the tractor for fear of disrupting the balancing act on the jack. I hit reverse and drove backwards across the toolbox, back over the big metal
    Bar on front and back over the winch.

    I've popped a few wheelies in my day. Never on a trailer but I could see how that could happen.

    My mule is at the shop. While backing it off the trailer it popped off the tongue. Apparently the tongue lock didn't catch. That's a bad feeling when you are mid mistake and know you just have to commit.

    A tractor has killed a lot of men but most of them were killed by tricycle front end tractors. Fuckers look neat but they are meant for parades and museums these days.

    Like i said an old SuperM is still doing all of our work, it's a lot of tractor for the money considering what was paid for it.
    They're fun to to play around with but there are better options out there now days for sure.

    When I sold the SuperC I about got ran over by the man that was buying it. I was standing by him on the tractor kind of in front of the back tire and talking to him and showing him some things as it was running and he was sitting in the seat. It was in gear ( I thought he had it in neutral) and he let off the clutch real quick on accident As he turned around to look at the PTO shaft. It popped forward and started taking off. The back tires pushed into me real quick like me and I had to jump backwards and roll to get out of the way

    Slaya and I have planted hundreds of acres of food plots and dove fields with 40 year old tractors, one disk, and one spreader. Buy what you can afford and keep moving up when you can. There is a lot of satisfaction in doing what you are contemplating.

    I would imagine not, but it is what it is.

    I am afraid that we are getting ready to learn how big of a national security issue it is to keep our farmers from going under. It is so wet in the midwest that they can't get corn and beans in the ground before crop insurance deadlines and more rain is coming.

    There is also a swine flu in Africa and China that when, or if, it comes to America it will desimate the hog farms. The protocol in place is to kill all hogs within the area of infection and leave them in the fields to rot as burning the carcasses does not kill the flu. Most of the corn grown in the Carolinas goes to hog and poultry feed mills. There would be a tremendous over supply of corn. Lets hope the swine flu doesn't come. God bless the farmers!
