What would the ballpark be on an 8S 205 do we think? Are MF still doing the 3 equipment levels or is it pick options as you like now?

Would certainly want the “exclusive” spec from the 77xx models.

ive heard anyone who got one ordered before xmas got some v keen prices but its all changed since new year & brexit & nowt much dearer
if a comparable Fendt is no dearer then even me the die hard massey man would have to really look at the greens iam afraid.
Seeing Masseys biggest issue is resale value of which fendt leads the tractor market in that dept.

Didn’t someone on another thread a few days ago say a new top spec 7719s was about £110,000
Id say your about right... there is no way you could even get a 8S.205 for £115k now. pre xmas maybes.
There no use to me far too tall see what the 7S is like in about 5years time.
Thats if us Tenant Farmers are still in business by then

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

AHDB is now stopping programmes of work that could be restarted in the future by grower associations, individual growers or the supply chain. This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information.
