Neighbor bought one pretty good size. Had a few minor issues with the loader, but was taken care of with warranty. He kept bragging it up, until the rear end broke into with a disc mower. Took about three months but was covered. He ran it through an auction and got a bid for half of its cost. He sold it finally privately I have no idea what he got. The price new was tempting, and to be honest he is known to be a little rough with equipment. But with my luck lately I don't have any room to talk about people. :oops:

I looked at one also and decided to go with JD. May cost a little more but will hold resale value.

A bit more than "a little more"....more like double the price +

I run a Mahindra for the past 3 years...have a buddy that runs one too. Mine has been trouble free...doing everything I ask of it. Buddy is brutal on his...and so far no issues. They are making inroads in this area...we see more and more. Also, have a very good service dealer just down the road. I am very pleased with the Mahindra.

Maybe so. Only JD's around here are the 100 HP and up models. For smaller jobs and smaller operators (45-65 HP) it's Mahindra, smaller NH and seeing more and more of the Kioti tractors.
