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.
Nice equipment there gwk4667
I am a firm believer with proper care and maintenance the older equip. will always get the job done. We're using a Case 930 Comfort King for disking,not sure what year? They were built between 1960-67
This year we used a 1963 Ford 4000 to pull the drill to plant the soybeans,we've even used a old John Deere johnny popper B farming
