Spent a week on a CS110 and dump trailer and it was unimpressive powerwise to to say the least and it was supposedly opened up to 150hp. Wasn't a bad thing to drive tho if I'm honest, visibility out the back wasn't that great. Will see if I have a pic of it


CS 110's are 4 cylinder. Be very surprised if it was more than it's rated 113. 4 cylinder tech obviously wasn't what it was then, as it is now.

The steyrs are a good bus 6 speed with a 4 speed power shift and a pre select forward reverse the later1s had front suspension as an option
Also a rear electric spool aswell as the normal lever 1s

The older steyrs like the 8130s with mwms engines bomb proof nearly until neglected then costly to repair same with gearboxes.
The only issue with the 81s was the brakes they were a dry external disc brake which required regular maintaince and was a fire hazard they had a front disc brake on the prop also
A good solid tractor and something slightly diffrent aswell id have one in a flash

Ok let's look at this from a different angle. Joe is in the Orkneys am i right?

What experience in repairing tractors is there up there? How easy is it to get parts etc. I know it's not timbuktu but it's not like round here either where main dealers are a stones throw away for all major brands.

Whatever the local spannerman/ tractor seller specialises in is maybe the one to go for.

Or maybe all brands are well catered for @Joe S ?

Which models used MWM engines?

As far as I remember they were Daimler Steyr motors.

The Orkneys are well catered for dealerwise by the main brands JD, MF, Case, NH all have dealers on the Orkney mainland I think.
The Islands are not like the Western isles, with crofts and old small tackle.
Not so much arable stuff but for grassland and livestock equipment it far in front of parts of the UK. At one time they had the highest amount of self propelled foragers per acre of the UK.
Parts are the same as anywhere else with maybe an extra day required. They often get charged more on delivery though. Bloody Highlands and Islands surcharge.

I think the lesser brands might be more problematic though.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy
