Hi guys.
looking to upgrade from a TM130 to a T6.160 AutoCommand. has anyone any experience with a T6.160 AC or could point me in the right direction of one for sale.
My main job for the tractor will be ploughing with a four furrow plough. something the tm130 has little problem with, should the 160 pull away no problem or will it have its work cut out?
Any advice appreciated. Thanks

I’ve got one, 2016, similar to the one above for sale. Can’t see why it shouldn’t handle four furrows, hell, back in the day when I was a student, a 7610 bossed one. Very smooth, ours is only used for feeder wagon, fertiliser and mowing, which it excels at. Not so good on haulage, collected a new to me Keenan, 10t empty, climbing hills is not its forte.
 
Here’s a tidy one for sale, seems high money for what it is, the age and the hours on it though but maybe it’s because it’s got a loader and it’s a blue power.

That if I'm not mistaken is the 50th anniversary edition full spec with gold grill. That might just end up being as sort after as a silver jubilee 7810
 
As to the original post I've put a 5 furrow on mine before as well as a twin leg subsoiler going a good 16 inches deep in heavy going. And it copes as well as any 130hp tractor would. Its great on pto work biggest thing a 3.5m power harrow. The fuel tank isn't big enough for it to last a long day if it's working hard. It's main job is fert spreading and spraying which I cannot fault it at.

Where I help out sometimes has a t6.160AC. It's an absolute pocket rocket. One of the smallest tractor in there fleet and one of most the drivers favourite. Small and compact but will handle 5 furrows with ease. Even manages little trailer loads of maize and it would out pull the t6.180 I had.
