I joined the ranks of tractor owners that have both older Fords and a more modern tractor. I picked up a well used 2006 Kubota B3030 and used it last winter and retired my 860 from winter snow duty. While the 860 worked, I have to say the comforts of a cab, front snowblower, and hydrostatic transmission were easy to get used to. The 860 is a keeper though, and I want to clean it up now that it will be semi-retired. I treated the 860 to new front tires this spring.
