At that time Mahindra didn't build a cab tractor in the size that I wanted so I went with a 70 horse Kobota, HUGE MISTAKE. I hate the thing, it rides rough and I tore the bucket off it trying to pull a truck out of the sand the first week I had it. It's just cheap made and expensive.
I have owned several tractors of different manufactors and Mahindra has my vote by far.
Tough, comfortable to operate machines, reliable and cheap to buy.
A down side to them is their resale. I have bought and sold alot of tractors at the big auction in Idabel Ok and have seen near new Mahindras come through for 1/4 the price of a new one. Mahindra is just not a household name (yet) like John Deere or Kobota and they don't bring the money as the others do. That will change with time though!



That green paint is also very expensive, even if it covers up another manufacturers name just like caterpilar and JD heavy equipment..
