My neighbors have a John Deere and once there's a problem, the software forces them to hire one of their experts to come fix it. My neighbors can't fix things themselves. It gets expensive and it costs them time as well. Are most tractors made like this nowadays? Are there any tractors you can still fix yourself?

I own many Farmall H tractors. I can fix them all. I don't try to work on my newer International ones. I think you're right, tractors are like vehicles now. You've got to go to the dealership to work on your car now too. Technology!

Deere has been notorious for this. I can't say if the change is good or bad, but I have to question the necessity of it.

I too own many Farmall H tractors. I've torn three down and rebuilt them. I don't own any new tractors. I do hear a lot of people complain about newer tractors and technology!
