Olivers??!! About the only thing they have going for them is they are cheap, and rightfully so. Some relatives of mine had a few Olivers around 100 hp, and the Waukesha engines were JUNK.
My dad has used JD equipment for 30 years, and has no plan to change. When you have 20 year old tractors with 10,000 hrs that have never been apart and still run like new...stick with what works.
