Welcome back Gumby!  I have to say, I look at the full size Massey's and even the Ford Jubilee models when I cruise Craigslist, but I know that I simply have no need and they will just sit unused and rust away.   So, I content myself with the little Masseys, which are still very powerful and capable machines.

Hi Gumby,

 

While others are welcoming you back let me review with you a few rules around here.....

 

1) Pictures MUST accompany a post where new GTs are referenced.

2) When referencing a new purchase of a GT, pictures are REQUIRED.

3) If photos are unavailable of the GT you are referring to videos are an acceptable substitute.

4) When unsure of whether a picture is required, POST ONE ANYWAYS!

 

:bigrofl:

 

Welcome back....oh and got a pic or two?

 

Matthew

Welcome back Gumby. Until you try it, you just never know if it's meant

for you. Looking forward to seeing what you're up to with GTs.

Having to do big farm jobs with the big boys makes them  "job tractors" and not "fun tractors".  My GT's are a blast to use no matter what I'm doing, even doing important farm jobs like cleaning stalls, small/medium digging jobs, etc.  No way I'd ever give up GT's!   :thumbs:

I have both a Ford 600 and 6 garden tractors, it is a problem storing all of them.I use several to mow with just to use them and the 600 I drive to the gas station to fill the gas cans just to use it for someting. In the winter we have shows to take them to and they all get out then

I have thought about getting a big boy, but being able to get in and out of where a GT will go makes me stay with them. Well that and the price of one.

Well I do plan to get me a sub compact with a front loader. I will probably end up getting a Massey Ferguson with a belly mower AND FEL. I can name a 100 x a day I could use a FEL. It will mow the yard and lift heavy stuff my back doesn't like to lift. If I can find a FEL loader for a sears I'd be all over it.
