I have a older M120 and it's been a good tractor. All that been done to it is front wheel seals that were ruined by twine. It's the first tractor I have owned that doesn't leak oil all over the place in the winter and it will start - 40 if forgot to be plugged in. They are light on the back end so I would recommend adding weights. Very dependable tractor in my opinion.Anyone using kubota mx126 or similar size? want to know people think of the larger kubota sizes.
Open center is not a bad thing in a loader tractor for winter use, in my closed center tractors I had to use a jumper hose to keep hydraulic oil circulating so hydraulics and steering will work.yes the JD is way overpriced it came in at 31000 more for a bare bones tractor compared to loaded MF or CaseIH ended up with the MF as it still did not have the DEF system in it as the CaseIh already had it. Another thing is the hydraulics the MF had closed center putting out 29 gal/min were the Kubota was an open center 22 gal/min
