Looking at next tractor hires, have Massey 7722‘s at the moment JD very competitive just wondering on opinions of Wether the 215 price difference gives significant in field performance boost over the 195, either would be on command pro. Many thanks in advance.

will be a mix of trailed sprayer 6m 750A drill grain cart and shallow cultivation with 650 carrier and 6m weaving sabre tine cost difference per year is not huge.

We have swapped from a 6195r to a 6215r to lift a sabre tine better, the 215r is 1ton more lift through the lift arc, handles the drill a lot better, always happy with the 195 but the 215 has some serious go about it, we are on 710 70 42 tyres these I really recommend for using the sabre tine.
