No doubt in my mind it would be a diesel SCUT with loader and backhoe. Have been almost envious as I have watched my neighbor or accomplish the many landscape projects on his place with a Kubota BX 25. And have many projects I would like to accomplish where one would be a great enabler. I consider th SCUT to be the Super Gt of these times.

I am not real brand loyal so whether it would be Kubota, Deere, Massey,Ferguson, or Simplicity Legacy.

Every one has it's strong points and it would come down to the dealer who offered the best deal.
Even if money was no object, my nature would be to be frugal.

Hummmm. INteresting question. I am not sure of the brand but here is what I would want in no particular order.


1.  4wd - so I can get stuck in deeper messes.

2.  Hydro trans - getting old ain't easy

3.  Front end loader capable of lifting at least 1000 pounds - better it lift than me

4.  Small enough to pull behind a pickup - don't want to have to get a CDL to move it.

5.  Tight turning radius - Making 425 point turns gets old

6.  Front and rear PTO  -why limit yourself to just the rear

7.  Power steering - like hydro trans it makes life easier

8.  Comfortable seat! - that is where I will spend all my time.

9.  Cup holder. (Coffee pot???) - a sandwich maker is probably asking too much.

10. 3 point  hitch Doesn't make sense to not have one

11. 60 inch mower deck - could be a finish mower on the rear I am not choosy.

12. Lots of lights - working in the dark gets old.

13. Front winch - I have needed a winch of more things than I can count.

14. Diesel engine - more power better fuel economy

15. Lots of attachments - tiller, plow, rake, box blade, maybe a Gannon Earthcavator etc etc for rear Grapple and forks for front at a minimum.

16. Backhoe - although it won't get used much it would be handy on occasion.

17. Heated removable cab - Air conditioned non removable!?!?!?!?!?NAH.

18. Probably more stuff that I can't think of now.

If just a "new tractor", I would upgrade my full size tractor - add a 4000 series Deere to park beside the 2320. I'd like to do that now, but the 2320 is paid for, runs good and I have the time (and other tools) to make spending the money for the upgrade a luxury as opposed to necessity - but if it were FREE !!  :dancingbanana:


If we are staying with the older GT theme..... maybe one of the 400 series Deeres with a diesel? Hard to decide, since I still have 3-4 GT's waiting for attention at the moment...


What I would REALLY LIKE, would be attachments!!! They seem to be the harder thing to find for me.... If I could have one of each of the "available" attachments listed in the old catalogs for either my Ford LGT, Cub 1650, or Sears SS16!!! I think that would be my preferred method of "spending" all this free money if I could get them!!!
