Can anyone tell me what kind of road speed they've had on a CASE IH MX270?
I know they are 40k but just wondered if it's a "just about 40km/h" kind of tractor or if they do a bit more?
 
I can't remember in all honesty, was too long ago. It was a big tank of a thing on the road, bonnet it out in the road at junctions, be even worse with a front linkage.

Old style Magnums with the HE-MAN gearbox were plenty fun on the road, shunt-shifting your way up the box meant you'd need a neck-brace eventually.

The top speed of them isn’t really a ‘thing’ on a tractor like that.

About 20 years ago a building contractor got a 7250 pro out on demo, he had 40k 1056 Turbo’s and a 5150.

He put a 16 ton digger on low loader and 3 buckets. Weight probably about 21-22 ton. It was pulling up hills at 20mph where the maxxum was in second range.

He worked out it was doing about 2mpg so bought a lorry.

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
