I'm looking for a fresh tractor. I'll be using for spraying, fertilising and pulling 4m direct tine drill with a hopper out front. So a reliable light weight machine, which is still man enough for draught work. Any ideas?? I'm pretty open minded on age, hours etc..

Case/NH CVX are reliable and should the worst happen and a new gearbox is needed its a lot less than what any other make costs. Use a NH T7.270 occasionally and its still on the original box after 11,000 hours with zero issues. It does all the work on a 500 acre farm.

Valtra T174 or N174? I use a T174 on my 4m Simtech which is all on the back with only 700kg on the front when drilling wheat, the hopper holds a tonne and a bit. Most of the time it purrs away at 1100rpm 8km/hr on flat heavy ground on the drill.

Although the N(4 cylinder) is a little lighter if buying new or with some care second hand the T can have bigger diameter wheels to offset the small amount of extra weight. Mine is on 650/75R38 and 600/70R28s.

What sort of tine drill. You’ll need a lot more horses to pull a 4m Claydon/muzuri than a sabretine/simtech kind of drill
