So if it has been Bolens and Massey all along, why change now. Do it for the team. Go team Bolens!

Why change it you ask? Why do we change are clothes? Why do we buy more tractors? Simple, we get tired of the same thing all the time. Besides, we need a new brand up there. Next month I will nominate the Toro that is my avatar currently. George, what is next month's theme??

I see no need to change a thing. This forum was built on everyone helping one another. Maybe certain brands have won the featured tractor for months before. The only way I see to change that is for more people with other brands becoming active in this vote. I am happy to see my tractors in second and third because they are not the normal winners thus far. But that can change. I refuse to bit*h about the system. If I want something different from the system, then I find a way to change the system. Bit*hing gets you nowhere.
That's my $1.50's worth.

I wasn't complaining, I was trying to point out that mabey lesser known brands should be entered more often, in addition to the norm, because they have shots at winning, just like the others. I'm not saying you can't enter a Bolens or a Massey, I am saying if you have something you think is great, enter it. It might lose still but it CHANGES what can be voted for, and mabey could win. You never know if you never enter it.

I know guys and I was just kidding also. I would love to see any many other brands as possible. They are all unique in their own way and have something great to offer. They are all history that shouldn't be forgoten.

Sorry, Casey. But your post came across to me as a gripe. This forum has lots of Massey and JD people who stay with their brand when voting. We will get other tractors to win when enough vote outside their brand, going for the tractor they like.

Ya Kenny, I reread my post and thought, ok, mabey Kenny read it differently, I better clear up my thoughts. I really would love to see some other brands win once in a while, it just seems like the name brands get all the votes, and anything that isn't common just sits there with a few votes, and it is the very same every single month. I know we all like tractors and variety, so why does it seem like each month is a repeat? (I know you can't enter the same winning tractor for 12 months)

Doesn't matter what brand wins, as it's the voters who have the say. But I would think more would vote.


I agree with you on that Daniel.

Heck, I just threw my tractor in there so there was more options for voting. Just checked and I'm tickled pink that I got the number of votes I do. I was never expecting that at all. I don't expect to win but thanks to everyone that voted for my little red cub.
