 m/f 231S

bigbukhntr,

I'm going to have one of these delivered this Saturday (231S).

After looking at a few of the real "compacts", I finally decided on a more "traditional" farm tractor for my needs, the MF 231S.

With the current program(s) I can get it right now for $11,950.00 (plus 6.5% sales tax).

This is a 45 hp machine. The nearest I could come to that (hp wise) in a compact is a NH TC45. The TC45 I looked at is an old stock item at a local NH dealer (Tulsa, OK) and he's motivated to get it off the lot.

He says there's three programs on it he can offer. He states it's a $19,000.00 tractor and he'll sell it right now for $14,500.00. It's a non HST, 2 wheel drive.

Since the NH is just the 2 wheel drive, I'll go with the Massey and save the $2500.00. If the TC45 had been FWD and HST, I WOULD have went with it.

...that NH TC45 is a new machine with zero hrs (or near zero).
