Literally all I know about this deal is a buddy is going to look at both tomorrow. The 8n is $500 the 641 is $800 and I have the option to buy either I want. (He's a farmer, mechanically inclined and has a couple tractors. We do deals together and hook each other up.) so either will be worth it if he gets them and gives me the option.
