My Case 7250 was within that budget (just). Just over 4000 hours, so only just run in. I could have bought a newer tractor for less money but I prefer respected models that will have little if any depreciation.

Local contractor had a 9 series renault absolute animal. Also a 82 series massey would fit the bill and budget
are those 9 series renualts reliable ,i know comfort wise they are good
His never gave trouble. It went on fire 1 day as ther was some stuf had gathered up and went alight. Burnt to a crisp. Was a shame as it was sum machine on a buckrake
a mr sander douglas has a clean one in north east england on agriffaires

we had a 7040 out for a couple of days and it seemed a bit dead would the 7060 be a lot better can they be mapped
We had a 7050 from new that was standard. It pulled well. Did 8.5k hours and pretty reliable. Sold it well within your budget.

Got a t7 260 now 7060 equivalent and it's a beast. Engine never seems to give up.

Sure they can be mapped. We had a bad experience with putting a chip on a green tractor in the past and won't be doing it again.

Chapman argicultural services has a case mx270 on agriaffaires with around 5k hours for 27500. That would be a good match to a tri axle wagon as its heavier than a nh t7070 or case puma 230
