I would go for the snapper 1650 with the cab and snow blower but the Casee 222 sounds good too. Glad you will be back to work :D

Glad for you! I'd pick the one you want the most.

After you get back to work, you can get the other 2 right? :D

I agree with George on this one, the SNAPPER sounds good, and it is a great machine. Of course you can also add the other two later.


Best regards George

Congrats on getting called back to work Tyler. As to which tractor to pickup I would lean towards the Snapper, not just for the cab and blower put you never know when having a second tractor that you can move implements back and forth from or in a pinch to rob some parts off of to keep one going would be handy.

It's great to hear that you're going back to work! If you don't mind me asking, in what industry do you work? Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Naturally of those you mentioned, I'd be partial to the Case 222, but if you already have a Massey or Snapper, that might be your best bet. Best of luck on returning to work! I hope it's not too big of a "culture shock" LOL!

Glad you're back to work, but expect an adjustment period. I know my body rebels every spring when it's time to get back to the physical labour.

For the tractors, I'd likely go for the Snapper first.

Full order books are a good thing. My spring is looking a little sparse so far. I think that'll change when the snow melts and people look at their yards though.

When you say electro motive, do you mean diesel-electric or the new electric trains.

Congratulations on getting called back to work! That would be a very interesting job. I've always been fascinated by trains, especially the locomotives.
