A Tractor Question

Oct 21, 2008
   I am looking for a long term tractor with mixed feeling on most of them.  I want a tractor that is dependable and in about 10 years or so when I need parts I can get them!  Do you have a recommendation?
   My friends are divided between Kubota and John Deere. At the present we have a ford 3500 and need parts for It but I feel we need a new tractor at this time. The computer test I took said I need a 27 to 30 horsepower tractors with a front end loader and 4 wheel drive, but gave no light on a make and model! 
  Thanks for any light you can shine on the question to help me make a good choice. I am open to your suggestions.

Having owned both J.D. and Kubota tractors and currently do i find the Kubota is an exstreamly tought built to last and minor problems if any,i would look at the Kubota MX5000 ,with 4x4,w/a monster front loader,and be assured it will still be running and any parts available in 2oyrs or more,kubota makes all there own parts,not J D
