New holland t7 185 or class Arion 650 cd is

Just looking for peoples thoughts on claas tractors at the moment I run new Hollands t6 160 t6 175 and a t7 175 local claas is trying to get me to buy a few claas put the t6 160 in for a Arion 550 and the t7 in for a Arion 650 cebis been to see them and they look not bad and lots of room in cab and more comfortable than the new Hollands just wating for some prices from claas and new holland as thinks of having new shape t7 and t6 but new holland doesn't seem to changed much only the bonnet and cab roof the inside of the cab seems the same lot of people say don't touch claas and others love them thanks


Claas will have JD engine. I'd buy the Claas. T7 185 a bit of a pointless model in my opinion. It's the smallest hp in that chassis size that goes up to 210. 185 not a very popular model they seem to push the T7 200 for some reason. The T7 185 will essentially just be around 140 hp before boost.

Claas looks a much better finished cab. Residual values still seem pretty poor though.
