    Today at work

    Were basically farming an ancient river bed so stones and rocks are just something you get used to, we do have some good ground without stones but the majority of the paddocks have stones in varying quantities.

    So what is high hours for a tractor ? or miles for a car ?

    I would be more concerned by the fact the engine has been sat on idle for 25% of its life, nothing worse for a engine than sitting on idle for extended periods.

    Volvo Ec140 value

    If its a machine you have had for a while and know how its been looked after then keep it , you will gain very little in performance or running costs by getting a newer machine and 7000 hrs is not hogh hours for a digger.
