    hey guys, just wondering what u guys think about a tractor forum or something of that sort. it seems a lot of us have either a garden tractor or compact or maybe even bigger, alot of us use it for landscaping, aerating or whatever. yes its not the best for mowing but still some use it. i think a tractor forum would be good to discuss uses, implements, problems, add ons etc etc.

    I love the older tractors. I have a 1963 Ford 2000 and a 1958 John Deere 420. I would like a forum on the subject.

    I love my tractors, but since I quit serious farming I only have 2 left a JD 2520 and a Ford 6600. Hoss, I used to have a 430 and 630 two-cylinders, hoping to find another 430 soon. I think a tractor forum would be great.

    good idea, i mess with grey market tractors and own an A/C b wide front with a woods belly.

    i'm always looking for small tractors and parts and discussing models.

    Hey, I would love a forum on this...have an old Allis Chambers tricycle. Damn thing's more dependable than some of my 2 year-old mowers.

    I'm really surprised no one has mentioned TractorByNet.com:eek: That site has everything, and more, about compact tractors (and lawn & garden, and implements, and customizations, and etc.). Well, you get the idea. Unless I'm misreading this thread and you want to have your very own section here, you're not going to beat TBN :D ! Try it - you'll like it!

    It would be just the thing , one website with all the forums I will use. But instead of just one forum for all kinds of tractors, you'd better make at least two, one for big tractors, and another for garden tractors if not a third for compacts, as these are all in a class of thier own and it would keep confusion down. But if you can't get two, then one would be ok. Heck i'd even be a moderater for a GT one. I'm really into them. I collect them and show them. Restore and fix 'em. I have always thought it would be cool to have one on LS.com... BTW, when voting i accidentally got the "no-bad idea' button, but i meant to get the 'yes definately' one.
