That's a tough one! Even though I always wanted a panzer, I think I would go with the Gravely. You don't see many of those around.

What is your plan? are these for show or are you going to work them?

They both look great! I.m guessing there around $1200 or so?

Am I remembering correctly? Does that Gravely have a Rear engine?

That is a tough call. Both are pretty special tractors.

If it was me with that choice, I would not eat for a month and take both! :laughingteeth:

No really, I have always liked the Panzers. Will have one someday! But I would take the Gravley because of how the body style looks like a "Big Tractor" scaled down.

Both are definitely worthy of being show tractors.

Tough call. I like the Panzers and they do not exist up here so that's what I would go for.

I don't know what either are worth, or how much money went into either of them but I would take the panzer over the gravely.
