Is anybody using an essential spec 6700s, good / bad points please currently using a 6470 for spraying - hedge cutting so not constantly using lift arms so don’t think I’d miss the armrest controlsand normally use power control for gears when spraying Thoughts-please

I'm not sure about 6700s but when I was pricing tractors last Oct/Nov I priced an essential spec 5713. It was really basic, 2 spools, mechanical suspension seat, 57lpm hyd pump, 4 work lights, 16.9x38 and 13.6x28 tyres, no sun roof, no front mudguards, no external linkage controls.Fanciest thing on it was the hydraulic push out hitch. It was £55k. To get it up to a "normal" spec was bringing it just over the £60k mark. Effecient spec might be worth while looking at.

Its and essential spec 6613 I have, wanted a 16 at the time but no price advantage so it made it 5 k more it replaced a teir 3 6470 .The T lever is no problem to reach , the new essentials have a rocker switch instead of the 3 touch pad ones, its murder but unfortunately I havent got hold of any one savy enough to upgrade the ecu software .I use both doors, with the control box bracket mounted on the door it opens out with it .3 mechanical spools have been trouble free after 6500 hrs now personally I prefer the essential cab with ccls cab and front suspension bigger lift cylinders and 50 k .
