Not sure where you are in CT, but Goff's in Litchfield carry's the MF line. GC series tractors are nice or you can step up to the 1800 series. They were pretty straight forward and upfront when I talked to them. I'm up in NH so if I wanted to avoid the sales tax I had to have them meet me over a state line and transfer that way or some such foolishness.Ive been looking around for quite a while at used ones. Like someone said the used prices are way up as well. I do still look and will until I actually pull the trigger on one.
