Very sound tractors ,way a head of there time , you must have been looking at the same sale as me as I thought would be a good yard tractor and some thing of an investmentAre these little tractors any good
One coming up for sale . would it be handy loader tractor
What’s craic with turbo matic clutch
Not the one I seen
We've seen that too. Four years older than the 310 we're still running.
Advert says 4000+ hours and one owner, but the seat looks older than that. Or owner was heavy.
It has 47 hours on the clock, so 10047?
But will still make about 15k?
Maybe think again about your insurance value,,you say 10-12k trade in value but what you need when you claim is actually replacement cost not trade value? So could be somewhat higher than trade valueNo idea. Seat is wrecked, but advert says 4714. So a rebuilt engine? Still a very tidy tractor. Our old 310 is insured for £12K and dealer says worth £10 - 12k as a trade in.
They were / are good tractors.

I would say if the clutch and gearbox is in good condition then there would be many worse loader tractors.. the 300 series box is quite light and positive to operate. I don't miss a reverser on ours as you can jump from a low to higher gear easily between reverses. Dry clutch is great for precision maneuvering.. 8 hour shift stacking bales would get a bit hard work obviously but still not a bad backup machine.Ahead of their time is a ridiculous phrase. Ahead of the competition maybe but nothing is ahead of it’s time,it is of it’s time .
A 309 is a fine tractor but it’s heading for a fifty year old design at this stage.
As said above hopeless as a loader tractor compared to a modern shuttle box.
It may have 40k, front brakes, a 750 pto and electric hydraulic control but l too would not like it as a loader.
