    well i bit the bullet and bought a new tractor.
    2012 Mahindra 5010 gear 50hp
    full cab. ac/heat, panasonic cd player.
    4wd, front end loader, quick attach bucket, 6ft heavy duty cutter

    plans are to add a few more work lights, winch on the front, load the rear tires and get a 72" root grapple.

    I have been eyeing the same model as I need one for winter work. Do you have a break down on what everything cost that you would share? Did you go with their fianancing?

    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.



    5010 gear w/ cab and front end loader was $26k, 6ft heavy duty cutter $2400. tax etc.. total was a shy over $30k. no payments until november. ( i plan to drop a large amount on the first payment)
