[ Our Equipment Page ]

The need for a reliable, lighter, and more manueverable tractor had become significant.  With our long, wet springs, I needed to find a way to cultivate and prepare the soil for spring planting.  We cultivate too much land now so using the Troy Bilt tiller is not practical and the 606D is too big and heavy and is prone to sinking and getting stuck.

At David Pendergrass' suggestion, I started researching the Mahindra line of tractors.  He knew my affinity towards classic International Harvester tractors and explained that Mahindra's roots were in manufacturing International tractors in India.

8/30/10 -  This led me to finding a local dealer here in Molalla about 10 miles from the farm - Ernie's Imports, Inc.  After going back in forth in email over a period of several days, we made an appointment and Dad and I drove up to look at the tractors and equipment.  I got all of the pricing and information, did some checking around, bounced it off of David, and called Ernie back and ordered it.  He delivered the tractor and all of the equipment today.

The equipment package ordered along with the tractor included a Mahindra Model 106 loader, Howse box scraper, post hole digger, Howse 5' mower deck and a used Yanmar tiller. John driving a tractor, and a manual transmission, both for the first time. Temporary parking spot.  I just needed to get things under cover.
