I found out yesterday the old JD 2240 is toast. Had planned on doing a tractor upgrade in a about 3 years but I guess that idea is out the door now.. I know this is beat to death but I am mechanically inept and need a used tractor that will get me through the next 15 or so years as trouble free as possible. Anyway, I would like to spend around $15,000-$20,000, need round 50 HP and gotta have a front end loader.I have about 20 acres to mow, plant 8 acres of summer crops,plant about the same in fall/winter plots and other than that just the normal mowing, grading etc on 320 acres.. Probably don't rack up 100 hours a year in tractor time.So what says the Aldeer peanut gallery.

Find a gently used JD 5205 ( or similar model ) 4X4 with loader.

No you didn't.....

Money is green and Green Tractors are going to separate you from it.

Well first off it burned up a little due to a mouse/bird nest under the hood. Spent 3-4 months trying to find someone to work on it because my really good old guy died and spent boo coo bucks replacing all wiring, injectors, etc, got it running and radiator blew out.More money and time on radiator and yesterday a new mechanic finds block is cracked or head blown or something equally bad which will cost more time to fix and is most likely not cost effective to fix. All of which I was dealing with from 350 miles away. And I gotta plant in 3 months. At some point I will get the old tractor looked at and fix it.The only thing better than one tractor is having two.When I do get up there I have to have everything running or important things don't get done.

I think that's going to be hard to do, if you get 4x4. You can find lots of 2wd tractors for your budget, but resist the urge. It almost got me, glad it didn't.

What you want for it? I'll give you a fair price.

I'll agree with color of tractor but anything red (especially football teams) is the spawn of Satan. Trucks should be black.

I've never been unhappy with anything I ever bought made by Kubota. They just crank, run, and do exactly what they were designed to do.

I have been happier with our small ( 23 hp) hydrostatic drive tractor than I would have believed possible. If I buy a 30-50 HP unit, it will be orange and have the full hydro drive.

Tractorhouse.com has a bunch of listings for orange and green, and Snead in Centre, AL has a smoking deal on an MX5200 Kubota with factory warranty until March.
