So, are people hanging on to their 'democracy pen'? When i voted I was handed the box of pens and ended up touching 5 or 6 trying to get one out as they were all jammed in there.

Their models around 40-50 hp have the nicest gear boxes and brakes I've used. Same with PTO engagement. Mediocre steering and substandard hydro on the three point linkage. That last is the deal breaker.

It has to be said though that the majority of expert opinion is that the track we're on now is the right one. Imo, Australia is, NZ is, Sweden is. Not sure about the rest. I'm not sure how those can all be on the same right track. The Swedish penchant for eugenics seems to have come to the fore.
