I grew up in a small market town with farms all round me....since I've never worked on one, all my farmer mates at school used to call me a "Townie". Now I work and live in London, everybody there calls me a country boy when they hear my rural Hertfordshire (farming area) accent...

Can't bloody win, can I??

Um... I'm not sure if I'm typing this right, but when talking about the farming accent a question popped into my mind:

Is the Hereford-breed coming from that neighbourhood?

No. That's named after a town on the English - Welsh border call Hereford.

I come from a county (or district) called Hertfordshire just North of London.

Hm... I guess you Englishmen have quite a poor imagination, when all the town names are so similar icon_mrhappy

... but on second thought, 75% of finnish town names end with "-vesi", "-järvi" or "-joki" :oops:

My Grand Parents have a John Deere tractor and a John Deere Lawnmower. I was taught how to drive using their John Deere Lawnmower and it was all fun and games one time I wass mowing the lawn and hit a pit. Man that sucked I got thrown off and mower got stuck. It was the first of many where I had to have my left shoulder reset.

Good question Kashluk. First of all, I think you did a great job with the selection of manufacturers: saves me a lot of time when tractors like the Ukrainian Boreks -- a solid work-horse in its own right, but sorely lacking in any qualities that would make it really stand out -- have been eliminated from the race before it has even truly begun.

Tractors by their very nature are purely utilitarian to me, I have no sentimental attachment to agricultural equipment. Therefore I would have to say that my favourite tractor would be the best tractor. What is the best tractor, then?

I think the most reasonable approach, this being a Fallout forum and all, would be to rate each tractor using some sort of a tractorized SPECIAL system. I will use the following statistics: Speed, Durability, Power, Handling and Features, giving each statistic a rating between 1 and 10. You could pick any number of statistics of course, but I believe these five strike an acceptable balance between accuracy and simplicity.

Now I will explain how these statistics should be assessed; again, I am hoping to be rigorous enough to make a reasonable evaluation, without getting bogged down with the minutiae of the machinery. Speed and Power are pretty self-explanatory. For speed I would assign a mean value based on acceleration and top speed and for power do the same with torque and horsepower. Handling could be tested on some kind of a special track designed for tractors, just like is done with race-cars and such. Durability should mainly take into account exposure to elements, impact damage and regular mechanical wear and tear. These all could be conducted using a variety of stress tests.

Features are a highly subjective matter, some might opt for mechanical levers instead of electrical switches for maintenance reasons for instance. I think the best course of action is to focus on what the features are, not how they are implemented. For example, a tractor may or may not have a pedal or a switch for controlling the rear differential lock; a tractor with the said feature should be rated higher in the Feature department than a tractor without.

Back to your question, Kashluk. I am a little embarrassed by how much I have written about the best tractor without saying anything about my favourite tractor. That is because my preferences are highly situational: I might prefer a tractor with high Durability over a tractor with high Power in certain weather conditions, for example, but that fact alone could hardly be considered a definition of a favourite tractor. Now, maybe there is a "perfect" tractor but I have yet to encounter it. That is why I think it's more practical to have an Excel spreadsheet of different tractor models and their statistics, so that any time I am assigned a job that requires a tractor, I can pick the perfect tractor for the job.

Clearly the king of tractors is the Pipe and Cable Plow SPIDER F 250 Cab.

Here is why:

- Doule arm system in front
- Reinforced chassis and construction
-Installation blade in the middle of the plow
- Traction point of cable straight in front of the installation blade
-Perfect weight distribution for outstanding performance
-Two-part blade for optimal terrain adjustment
-Powerful 4 x 4 propulsion technology with differential lock
-User and service friendly

That looks great for plowing pipes and cables. As for plowing fields or snow, I'm not so sure. What's the pressure range on the flow control block of that beauty? If it's anywhere near 6,000 psi I'm sold.

I just got off the phone with the dealer and he said the psi is whatever you want it to be honey and said he would throw in some sleek rims for it summer time, this baby does it all apparently and the dealer assured med that he uses it for both forestry work as well as the yearly field harvest.

Well if you trust your dealer then I trust him too because I'll trust anyone. Anyway that settles it, this is the perfect tractor and also my favourite tractor and I will have the 6,000 psi block and these rims please. The flow control block is for plowing fields and the rims are for plowing the pu$$y.
