So I presently run a Amarok doing 15,000 miles a year. It’s leased and going in June this year. It ticks all the boxes for me as it’ll travel across fields, tow a trailer, carry stuff in the pickup bed, takes the kids to and from school and is also happy travelling to the coast on holiday.
Have had a quote for a John Deere 6130 M and a valtra N134
Both have loaders, the valtra has come in a few thousand more than the JD, I would say the valtra is a higher is spec than the JD but not a lot on it...tyre sizes are the same on both machines.

My boy who is twelve has asked for a dirt bike for Christmas. We are complete novices with scramblers so I would appreciate any info on makes/models and what we should pay and avoid.
Any advise appreciated.
If you were to lease a Tractor for set period say three years or so what percentage of the retail value would you expect to pay. We have been approached to try leasing but it looks very unattractive compared with hire purchase or getting a loan etc.
