Looking for a fairly big hp tractor but nimble enough to go on corn cart etc.

I have demoed it and ti be honest really liked it, but I have never had a case before, so what are people's findings...

if you can manage with 265 bhp i would look at an mf 8s look very swish 10 tonne lift capacity too.

Local outfit Glovers Agri Contractors near the Wissington beet factory here in Norfolk bought one 3 years ago and have just taken delivery of a second one. Im guessing they must have been suitably impressed by the first ones performance to have bought a second.

Definatley need 300 on my 6m Claydon fully mounted.

Just as our dealer told us when Optum came. It's for the people who want power close to Magnum but in a frame close to Puma. Optum had great visibility also. (y)
