Depends on your how many acres you plan to do. I worked at an Aliis dealer 6 years and grew to love Gleaner conventionals even though I bled red as anyone. You can't go wrong with one IMHO becuase they are sooooo easy to work on and nice to operate although they are built a little on the light side and if they have been sitting outside for years get ready to get good at changing bearings :wacko: K, K2 ,F,L in all 3 series are great choices the newer the better. Nothing wrong with the others just they are older. A "G" with a 350 Chev sure barks nice B)

And theres only one rotary to consider if you go that route and it ain't galvinized its Red B) :D


For all the vintage green lovers............I made this video at last years John Deere Heritage Days near where I live ,Its a show put on by the First 2 Cylinder Club of Ontario at a different farm each year. No admission etc and WHAT A SHOW !

For a small operation and a older machine, a good 403 or 715 would be hard to beat. They are reliable and fairly simple to work on and operator friendly. The only drawback would be parts are sometimes hard to find due to age.
