Picked up a Terramite T5c today. Super nice family, had bought in an estate auction. Figured be something I could haul down to my land and dig a few holes and ditches. Is an mid 90's model. Power steering. Paid $4500 for it. I believe I can use it for a year and still get what I paid for it. Good bit of hours, but no smoke, good power.

No I would not call it a garden tractor. But I would definately say looking at the specs it falls in the Compact Tractor category. The Terramite is a tractor I have only seen pictures of. I think with the loader and backhoe it will be a very useful machine. And since the ones I found on Machinery Traders were sellin for double + of what you paid, I'd venture to say yo stole it. No doubt you can use it and get your money back.
The only GT that might come close to specs would be the 600 Series Case.

Congrats. Once you've used it a bit you won't want to part with it. So, you might as well build a new barn for it now. Enjoy

ah now your killing me!! Oysters,Shrimp and gumbo sound like heaven to a land locked yankee!!
That stuff has to take a long plane ride to get here and you pay for it.

Congratulations on a really cool tractor!!
