I think any of them would have to be good to make this list. Nobody picked the "Yard Man".
Would have to second the very first post on the panzer. I'd heard they were great little tractors. But the key there is little and that's what I wanted. Just wanted a little slice of my farming heritage while stuck in suburbia.

Just looks and feels nice.
Original manufacturer still in business and making tractors.
Hard to beat the dependability.
Never gives me any problems.

Definately most collectors dream of owning.
Exceptional resale value.
Every option a gardener could need.
Reasonably still easy to find.
Excellent quality and craftsmanship.

Oh, did I mention I like John Deere?

Grew up on green since birth. Lost many hours of my life on a flat fender 110, 210, 212 and a few hours on a RF110. When I got older time behind the wheel of a 1962 4010, a late 4010 (forget the year) and a JD 55EB combine sealed the deal. Worked grounds crew during grad school and spent many an hour on a 4110 compact tractor and several different Lanmar powered front mount machines. When I got to a place in my life where a rider was practical JD was my only choice.
