Just a quick look and there is some quality equipment out there to be had, but I highly suspect that in another month there will be many more deals..



That is nice but I need a loader and 4x4 and a cab as I brush hogged a hornets nest last year and just about didn't get to an EpiPen soon enough.

I think I am in love, Now the biggest factor that is swinging me to the TYM is every other tractor on the market is a common rail diesel with a ton of wires and sensors all over everything including the new exhaust BS. On the other hand the TYM is a miniature knock off of the old school Cummins with a Bosch injector pump on the side of it this thing only "NEEDS" 3 wires to run it. Pound for Pound everything else is a exact match. I will keep you guys updated as this plays out.

With tractors simpler is always better. Farmers are buying up all the old equipment because they can't work on the new stuff anymore.

I'm waiting on any non-essential purchase right now.

Sucks, but now's not the time for a big purchase in my opinion...

I think there will be some fantastic deals when we come out the other side of this.

Good luck with whatever you build. I agree with seeing if anybody offers 0% to help move product as we are all locked in.

I totally get the don't want to buy somebody else's problems.

My .02 is I'd go with the TYM over the LS. Rural King sells them if you need something. I thought they were pretty decently priced for what they are.
