I am proud of the fact that we run mostly older equipment - - - We did get a JD6170R this year as my son and daughter-in-law toped all sales records for a local seed corn company and were awarded it free. Other than that the 2 articulated tractors ( 9170 Case and 8560 JD ) are both 1989 models and the 4650 JD is a 1985
My grand daughter is now 5 1/2 and can run the skid steers as good as most men and my grand son is 2 1/2 and feels he is ready to run everything!
I even run older equipment in the gravel pit. The Cat 980B is a 1975 and the Cat 980C is a 1978 and both run daily.
