Their target market is city folks in the upper mid income bracket or higher. So my guess is they will sell some because a lot of them like showing of brand names that generally cost a little more. I can see it now, the burbs on a Saturday morning with all these Cabela's tractors mowing postage stamp lawns, that is the guys who do manage to find them after taking em to the hunting property to do food plots. It will go right along with their 500 dollar cammies and 2000 dollar shotguns. Guess next will be skid steers with the Cabela name on it.
I thought that was JD's target market for their SCUT's?
I lurk at a website (for comic relief) dedicated to as Art calls them, the "Cidiots" who have paid the price of admission into ownership and it's UNBELIEVABLE. They pay from $20,000 to $40,000 for their toys and finance them so much a month, and then cry when they break them while trying to dig out stumps with the available backhoes, etc.
That's one thing I have to give my one neighbor credit for, when he retired as a salesman from the local short line dealership when it closed 5 yrs ago he wanted a backhoe to play with, remove some brush & trees, and do a little landscaping around his house. He bought a used JD #710 TLB that was traded for a newer model by a large construction co. Yes, it had a bunch of hours on it, but was used, not abused, and it can do some amazing things compared to these expensive toys.
