The best tractors on the market today are the Kubota models. JD, M-F, if you want a small compact mowing/utility machine. Personally I'd stay away from anything M-F. I worked on my buddy's 1984 M-F 1010 a few months ago and parts were not to be had. I could get a fuel filter ($10)and an air cleaner ($30) but that is it. The dealer told me parts were not easily available even when new. These were built in Japan with a now out of business engine maker there and no one picked up the aftermarket parts for them. No one stocks many parts around here. Closest M-F dealer is 30 miles away. STEINER TRACTOR is about 35 miles away but they only stock certain model parts. My old neighbor bought a JD Compact Utility tractor and he can mow with it and plow snow but cannot hitch a plow or disc to it. My 2nd choice would be a NH Boomer. PowerMaster or Workmaster model.
