i looked at deere,kubota, new holland. the new holland dealer is like a 1/2 mile from my shop on the same road.

the dealer i bought my walker from is one of the biggest mahindra dealers down here. nobody could come close to the Mahindra on price or specs(lift capacity etc.) kubota/deere were about $8k more, new holland was almost $12k more.
