A good customer and friend just purchased a 930 this winter. Dang, I wish I could have beat him to it. You see when he gets a different tractor to put on his feederwagon it is a certain death sentence for it. These tractor do not ever leave his yard alive. As a dairy guy he's right when he says he makes his living taking care of cows and not tractors. Different help coming and going with no one really caring. I know in a couple years this tractor will be running around with all the windows broke and missing the grill screens and hood. This is what has happened to the previous 5 930's he has used. He likes them because they are simple and durable. When he brought this over to get the PTO fixed I knew it was a new addition to the fleet cause it looked to darn good. 2400 actual hrs, good rubber and not a dent on it. Runs like a clock. He's a nice guy, but I sure wish he had a ugly one to beat up. Oh well, it's guys like that which keep me busy. Rod.

I know what you are saying. Someone would love to have it to restore or take care and use it as is but on the other hand he found it and bought it so like it or not it's his to do with what he pleases. I tried buying a really nice 510 MF once and I knew the guy who bought it would demolish it but he was willing to bid more so there wasn't much I could say or do.

I bet he goes through pick-ups that same way. Some folks just have no sense of value. I agree he should take care of his cows, but if he adds up the cost of the tractors he "goes through" he will find that the cost is affecting his bottom line in a very negative manner.

A good craftsman always takes care of his tools.

This just makes me mad that he buy's something nice to destroy! Find a piece of junk if you can't appreciate something nice. I would love to have that tractor I want a 930 or 1030 with a factory cab! Nice examples are hard to come by. Someone needs to talk this guy out of this one.

If you look close, the tractor didn't leave the factory with the cab on it. That cab came in 68 and the tractor is older thn that. Desert sunset steering column and has the screens in front of where it says 930. Not that it makes any differnce, its still too nice go get a death sentance. We have a similar operation about five miles from me that is currently mauling a 83 2590 with 1500 hours on it.

I have seen this happen many times to all color tractors. The first farmer has taken care of it since new and the next guy could wreck a rock with a rubber mallet. The funny thing is the guys that buy these tractors seem to have money. And why would they buy a ugly tractor? They already have a shed full of them. JW... There is a low houred 1570 on a manure tanker gettin it here. BS.
