I have gone back and forth on this topic in my head for quite sometime now. What i am going to do:

PLAN A-If i can find a t190 or s185 with less than 1k hours on it for less than 15k i am going to buy it

PLAN B: I will find a 35-45 hp compact tractoruse in the 13-15k range with less than 1000 hrs on it

PLAN C: If i cant find either of those machines i will go with an older 763 bobcat low hours or buy a brand new 4000 series john deere with just the loader and add attachments as i go.
