There possibly is as nowadays companies are so intertwined and with costs to stay ahead of emissions targets its possible they design stuf together anď then market it seperately, havin cummins dna isnt a bad thing anyway as they make good products toThought there was a connection,then wondered if I had just dreamed it up
There quite possibly is but probably out of my budget, I'm looking at about 25-30 k, im not interested in finance.For the ops question there must be x7 series mccorrmicks on the market down in money by now as they are out a good while now
Thanks for the replys guys, looks like landini is to be avoided, was considering them because I have a good dealer backup near by ( agars)
I'll concentrate on finding a good mtx, is there a certain year or spec to be avoided?
That's a very good point, I've got to go see agars anyway as I'm going to sell the zetor 7245 and the Ford 8210 to part finance the new tractor.Agars will look after any brand of tractor within reason as long as they can get the parts easily enough and it doesn’t require a laptop to fix. Why don’t you ask them what used tractor in that price bracket they would recommend/be happy looking after?
Failing that there is plenty of self employed ‘man-in-a-van’ mechanics in that neck of the woods that could look after a used Deere/CNH/Fergi relatively cheaply
We run 2 MTX 150's now at 8 and 10K hours, good basic tractors, and would have anotherMtx is a good solid basic tractor. Trying to find a low hour example will be your biggest problem. Excellent engine well proven gearbox which like any other brand does not like abuse. Clutch packs good for high hours if your sensible with it. Hand brake wont tolerate being driven with it left on. Good hydraulic output for your destoner.
Paint can be poor resulting in rusty steps etc. Would suggest changing brakes straight away if you buy one. There cheap to do and the new type disc is very good

I'd even be open to a big zetor, but I've never seen 1 above 110hp round here.
