Recently our ranch purchased a new (used) tractor! We got a
1997 Case IH Maxxum 110 with MFWD (Mechanical Front Wheel Drive). I had the pleasure of assisting in the hunt for a new tractor and learned a lot in the process. The MFWD gives the tractor more traction so we don’t get stuck as easy in the sandy, sandy hills we live in. It also has a front loader and grapple (the bucket and teeth things). With 110 horse power it can run our bale processor, but our main use will be running V-rake for haying. I excited that my father-in-law and husband both trusted me enough to look at it when I found it and even more ecstatic when they decided to buy it (kudos to me). I hope it turns to be a good tractor for us or then I’ll feel bad!
