I have joined this forum because my dad has owned John Deeres since I was little and they just keep on chugging. Hes now up to 4 of them. I am purchasing a piece of land that warrants the use of a tractor and I think that a Deere is the way to go. I'd like to start figuring out which tractor suits my needs. I am between the 300 series and 400 series tractors (but would also be fine with a 140). My dad has a fair number of attachments for his 140s that I can borrow as need be. The 2 I am attracted to the most are the 318 and the 425. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
