    No your not missing much, the big advantages that fendt had have been eroded , fendt were the most comfortable tractor to sit in all day now valtra have caught up to them, the vario transmission in the fendt is a fantastic design but now the new valtra transmissions are doing nearly the same...

    Low loader floor steel or wood?

    Timber floor but timber on the ramps won’t last long . I put new timber in the floor of my 3 axle McCauley low loader and it didn’t cost a fortune . I sweep the floor before I load the digger , this gets rid of small stones that get pushed down into the timber doing harm.

    Dealer changes again the north or england & south of Scotland

    Your correct on the pricing , I know a farmer who bought a new valtra t234 for the same money as a used Jd 6210r with 4000 hrs on it. Jd are pricing themselves out of the market.

    Dealer changes again the north or england & south of Scotland

    He was just the European sales manager , we had a good discussion about the complete tractor market and what he told me is what is now happening on the ground. Basically he did not like the Massey tractor brand due to too many issues just like the issues that Speedstar had with his.
