    I'm sure everyone has a tractor or tractors that stand out they would love to own something you have kinda always wanted.
    Since I was a chap I always wanted a 5020 john deere

    Ford fw30 is on my wishlist as long as I can remember. Saw it on a paper when young and was fascinated that it was articulated.

    An aul pig of a Renault Atles 936, if I could get one with a 5ton front linkage to buckrake I could die happy after that.

    Massey 4800 series. Huge articulated beast of a tractor. The 5200 series were bigger but I don't like the looks of them.

    Ford 8600 or 9600, first big yoke I drove, always liked the styling preferably without the cab. Or an early American artic, Oliver or Allis Chalmers.. IMG_20200731_105448.jpg IMG_20200731_105313.jpg

    A green one passed by on the road a few weeks ago . There is one on a big Mulcher up the country.They make big enough money for an unreliable yoke.

    Hated the colour scheme in the promo video but saw another video from a just a regular YouTuber and the silver looked far better. Too white looking in the promo imo

    would love a pre vario fendt favorit 824 but a 515c is more likely. as a ford man be undecided over 2 blues. 8830 powershift or a top spec tm155 with range command, front brakes, air brakes, the works

    Mrs says I always buy what I want anyway.:lol:

    Always fancied a mf1200 purely for oddity.

    Still on the lookout for a nice 148.
