Well, I’ve gone and done it: signed on the dotted line for a new tractor.
It is a 2014 Farmall 65A (same as New Holland Workmaster 65, just different red paint instead of blue). It is out of state at a different dealer’s lot, so it should be here in a couple of weeks.
For now I’m eagerly awaiting its arrival. And feeling the pangs of buyer’s remorse.
