Hand cranking a ’38 Model A John Deere to work on the farm in 100-degree Tennessee heat ain’t anything fun. Modern solutions are needed, so I upgraded my tractor. We did our research, shopped around, and came up with a John Deere compact 3 series as the winner (3038E). Of course, it isn’t as good as the old one but it’ll do. Regardless, two green tractors are infinitely better than any combination of orange (Kubota), blue (New Holland and LS), or red (TYM). This is a known fact! Don’t @ me!
