Just Another Reason I Like Gts

So my advice to anyone looking to get an old fixer upper tractor is, you better have deep pockets. Unless you get an amazing deal on the tractor, you can probably get an older top of the line GT and all the goodies for what it would cost you to just buy the big tractor.

I've seen rare model tractors bring even bigger money. Some of them over $150,000.

That's one reason I got into GT's as well. I like the big boys too,but the cost to restore is really high.Also,it is a lot easier to store GT's ,because they take up less space.
Same reasons as Maynard here. I have 7 GTs in a 24 X 32 garage plus the wife's riding lawnmower setting outside. No way I could do that with a farm tractor. If I wasn't so lazy I could have put the wife's mower on the table.
The youngin' in the photo is my 6 year old tractor mover/helper. Note: No state or federal wage laws were violated because I don't pay him.

Then mowing the "back 40" with the D160, I hit a mud hole. The top looked solid but the front tires went out of site. 1 chain, come along, and 15 minutes i was back in business.
Did I mention I am farming mud.
