I am 55 and my bros and I row crop and raise cattle and my my son and I are general contractors and the largest hardscape contractor in our immediate area. My father bought the first Kubota in our area in 1973 a little L175 and and am patching up a B7100 hst to trade for another Deere. We have owned each color out there and our deeres wind up the cheapest to OPERATE over the long haul even though they are somewhat more expensive in the beginning. We paid about 21.5 for a 4105 and loader 2 yrs ago and we use it in the winter to feed 5X6 round bales in the winter and on the jobsite in the work season it now has just shy of 400 hrs on it and won't be 2 until april. We run our equipment as long as it is not a problem and have 4240 w/10k+ AND 8640 W/8800. so our deeres have been good to us.
