    Yup. The later MFs even have an onboard PDA-esque unit with SD card readers. Also some Case machines have fully automated steering controlled by GPS. I trust computers, but not that much...

    No, nor me. Last tractor I drove was (IIRC) a MUCH modded MF "tractor puller" special at the Shukers agriculture dealer where I used to work fixing agricultural machinery and tractors.

    Beast of a thing it was, too.
