    Go with the JD. You will be able to get parts and service for as long as you own the machine. Also, there are no finer, better illustrated, owners and shop manuals made than those from John Deere.

    Wrong DOW on EE?

    Based on my calculations, the DOW ended yesterday at 35. EE is using 91 as the DOW to calculate starting numbers. Think they will correct it before the field trials start on Friday?
