I agree with Ultradog and Ed - I have a 3000 diesel with 8 speed, 2 stage clutch, PS, Traction Lock, and the biggest flipping battery I have seen in a tractor. There are other good features, but power and fuel efficiency are the biggest. If you can afford to wait, I would much rather wait for an 8 speed, and I would strongly recommend the diesel for fuel economy even though the purchase price may be higher. Oh - and if you get PS you must have a wood neckers knob on the steering wheel. Mine must be as old as the tractor.

I do not need my tractors in Minnesota winter, but I start and run them to well warmed monthly - neither of my 2 diesels or my remaining gasser ( an 871 ) let me down as long as I don't let their batteries down.
