I spend a lot of time and money on things and Made a decision last month to make some changes. If it doesn't improve me as a person or my homestead Im getting rid off it. My last wheel horse was sold yesterday and I traded one of my 420 deeres for a little bit bigger tractor.

Ive got some parts of stuff ill sell off or scrap and am left with the Honda repowered JD 420(my mower) and this 1954 Ferguson to30. I do alot of 3ph stuff and the GTs just were not big enough.

That's too bad but keeping priorities in check is important, you'll just be tractoring in a different way now!

@BairleaFarm I own a 6.7 acre hobby farm and TBH the sub compact diesel tractors do all the actual "work". Red Stag is a luxury off road tractor but I still have a couple of low buck machines that have a purpose weather it be for mowing or just pulling a small wagon around.

>  If it doesn't improve me as a person or my homestead Im getting rid off it.

Went through something like that 12+ years ago as I sold or got rid of much of my hobby computer stuff.  Sold a bunch of antiques and such too.   I still buy tools, but, I try not to buy junk or too much of something.  I fit all my clothes, except for boots, belts, and coats, into one dresser drawer.  Underwear and socks into 1/3 of a drawer.

I do buy more seeds then I really need or can use, but, they are more of an insurance policy then anything else.

Sold almost all my gold, ammo, and guns to pay bills. Except my house, my debt is very low, my CC usage only goes up as I buy at auction and some things take a while to fix and resell.

Canceled cable, stop watching TV, and literally burned hollywood and the music industry out of my life.  I get much more traction in my life now out of riding lawn mowers.  Sold off everything 1f601

I will probably still have 3-4 LT/GT at one time during a year for my own use, but, I have been looking at buying a sub-compact or compact 4x4 tractor myself.

Ripping up hard packed ground with a bottom plow or something like that is not exactly LT/GT territory no matter what rear axle you put under a Craftsman. $0.02
