Now your seeing it the same way as me, 10k plus a bit of love and care and i have something worth a fair bit more than i payed what can take some of the stress off the 1594, and it will do 40k with ease

plus it has front links, TLS axle and all the other goodies
You JAMMY____;). TLS and front links(y)

wouldnt buy a new trimmer as cant get one light enough and long enough for what i want, and im definately not going down the axle bracket route

Always fancied a 66, and just so happens this one is in my price range, and knowing the full history of it it worth a bit as well

Wouldnt fancy hanging that mower on the back of the 15!!!!

Want the deere and 15 to be able to run the same kit, so ive got two options for everything, deere on a plough, 15 on drill combi, or 15 on the plough while the deere is out on hire carting tates (although there is every chance the 15 will end up on hire as well, i had both the 14 and 15 out last year all lifting season

if it was round here on flat going id have no issues hooking the 15 on that as you might well know

only stumbling block i have so far is front linkages, the 66 has a "proper" one, whereas the 15s linkage works in a different way, the main arms are higher up, so the front press will need adapting to allow for both linkages to fit it

You could sell the 1594 and 1494 and get a 6400 or something similar as well?

Not an option, im not a lover of the 4 cyls at all they nod too much and i just dont like the sound of them

had a 6400 and a 6600 where i first worked, even if it meant half hour swapping implements id always take the 66 over the 64

Will still keep the DBs, they are only ever going to increase in value the longer i keep them providing they both kept in good order, which is easy for me to do

Cheers...thats gave me a rough idea, so basically to put her right im looking at least a grands worth of parts im guessing

Tractor in question has been through the wars, showing 9700hrs

spent first 5000hrs of her life on dual wheels, has broke both back axles twice (@Roy Stokes !!!!!) Its had the heavier duty solid wheel centers and extra center plates fitted, had full back end rebuild and new brakes at 7500, since then its been relegated to trailer and yard work, pto loom is damaged due to fertiliser, the gear selectors in the console are sloppy and need sorting (C,D,E F range are pot luck to find. 3 new tyres, the powerquad feels crisp and instant, and the engine still starts and pulls well with no breathing. Puh is stuffed, cable broke, pin and latch removed and had been replaced with a solid drawbar pin, rear fenders damaged due to when axles broke

Question is, is it worth £9000????? I think its got potential
Think you would get some change out of £1000. Beside that sounds like a standard UK 9000 hour tractor.

The only reservation is the ranges. Might be something simple (cables, linkages etc), could be something a bit more serious in the range box. If it's not that, it's about the right money.

Having had a quick look, there appears to be a long bolt what holds the 3 selector forks, this bolt is loose and moves up and down in the bracket whats fixed to the cab or wherever, once its in range it seems to stay in, just all the selector forks move sideways and up and down

Also, all the spool valve cables seem jammed, i know the o rings can cause this, but it may possibly need a set of cables as well to effect a permenant repair???
