 New Boomer, looks like an 8N

Just saw a picture of one of Ford New Holland's newest, a Boomer in a 1940's dress to resemble the old 8N's. There wasn't much text other than it mentioned front wheel assist. Never know it might be a hit with the nostalgic silver haired,(or no hair) set.

Here's a picture--and it comes with a curved arm loader too!

I hate to admit it, since I DID own a 9N, it is kinda growing on me. Even though I'm nowhere near the grayhaired and nohaired. tehehe

EW; Only your hairdresser or your wig fitter knows for sure. Wouldn't have a clue how to spell tupe, tupay, topay, twopay, so wig it is.

Looks pretty neat. I'll have to stop by the NH dealer and take a look. I'm wondering if these are Shibauras. And what is a CVT doing in a tractor?

If they are going after the market who used the 8N when new, beleive they will find it to be a smaller market being active then they think. I know they had gone to the 601 series by 61, that was 48 years ago. So a 20 year old who used one is now 68 and I do know they buy tractors, but have feeling they will find not many. A local tractor dealer, one I bought my Kubotas from, told me about 8 years ago they were a very soft sell now as those who had a tender spot in their memory were old enough they were not buying them.

These type of Corporate decision to make stuff like this kills me. They are likely bloated $$$$ from last summer's "feeding frenzy" when farmers were buying new equipment during the gas prices hikes to make bio fuels---then the market dropped out. So these $$$ are probably the result of "R&D write-offs" against those profits--just one man's opinion.

The flip side is it does attract attention and has to resonate amongst those like Kenny said had one growing up.

KW; The CVT in a compact doesn't surprise me, I've wondered for while who would be first in a compact with one.
I never was around the 8N's as a kid so the nostalga bug isn't biteing me too hard, but if someone stated building new "M" Farmalls I'd be drolling all over one. Frank.

I dunno. My impression of CVTs is that they are pretty weak. Are there any diesel cars or trucks sold with them?
