Its the lever beside the seat. Its currently covered in snow right now after a freak storm lol

Any other tractors you think I should look at? I like Jacobs it seems like a decent size

a guy at church just got (I think) a 5085 JD w/o cab or anything. It's a nice tractor, but $$$$. I would definitely shop around to get comparative specs for probably a lot less.

Agreed. i'd be looking at MF and NH first. They make some nice tractors, and have quite a few choices once you get to that size range.

I priced NH also before buying my mahindra. Nobody could touch the price and warranty from Mahindra.
Once I pay off my 5010. I plan to get a 6110 w/ cab and no FEL as a dedicated bushhogging rig.

No, not for sure. I haven't kept up with them like I have Deere.

around here JD was always higher, but apparently from corporate, JD has been forcing the "little guy" owners to either get bought out by larger dealers or go under. Meade Tractor bought out the local guy who had two dealerships around here and ever since their prices have basically been msrp, no negotiating or anything. They have the "green" market sewn up for all of southern WV and southwest VA, over 150 mile radius I believe, over 6 or 7 dealerships got bought out with multiple locations. So if you want green, you're definitely going to have to spend it now.

Seems to be the same way everywhere from all I have read over the last couple years. It's certainly going that way here. Only one or two small dealers left in the southern half of the lower Pen of MI that I know of.
