    Don't hear much of them nowadays, I thought they'd dissapeared into CNH.
    But lately a small machinery dealer near here seems to have been sharing a lot of their posts on Facebook, do they still sell into the UK? I'm half expecting an announcement they've taken on the agency. Are they just a Case in different colours now?


    Spot the spelling mistake, don't seem to be able to edit the title, should of course be steyr, damn auto correct!@llamedos, can you help please.

    Think you are right. I believe Tunstall tractors might well supply them?

    Used to love the CS150 I drove... it was way ahead of its time as was the cs94 . Compare that to he 856 or even the 4240 it was years ahead

    I had a quick google and tunstall tractors were the only ones in the UK I could see with any connection to steyr but when you look on their website they only seem to have second hand ones for sale so I'm not sure wether their connection with steyr is current or historic.

    As far as I know no dealer in Uk is a steyr dealer, only case and ford offered
    You can buy new steyr in Europe
    Particularly Germany /Austria
    Look well in steyr colours

    David always could get new ones.. been a while since we’ve had one off him. As mentioned before, good tractors way ahead of their time that always punched above their weight! Had a 9115 that was supposed to be 115hp. On Dyno she was 140 at shaft. Came new like that :D always thought it was lively (y)

  12. In sure they still make "the proper Steyr" quite expensive I think it was the 9100 range.
    They never used to much trouble until parts got cheapened.

    They can be bought but it's a hard process to obtain one,through CNH dealer I believe.
    I remember the 1st CVT 170 coming, after dealing with hundreds of 975s and 90 series
    The CVT was out of this world

    Brilliant tractors in their day and sold really well with a good following too

    image.jpg These two showed up at Mavern a couple of years ago. There used to be one in Lincolnshire, out on the Wolds, like the one on the left, but considerably bigger. Never did find out who owned it, or ever saw it working.
    A contractor in Nottinghamshire has one, but newer type, like the Case equivalent.
     
  14. An 8150 and possibly a 540
    The 81 were absolutely bombproof I'm sure they had the Daimler engines
    Same class as the older fendts in terms of reliability

    We had an 8165 reverse drive come through 1 of the lads took it tractor pulling at great eccleston

    Most Case IH mid size are built in Austria at the old steyr factory?

    All new ones are just case. I have been told that they get alot of options as standard package. Only real difference is the bonnet.

    Old school (SISU engine, ZF CVT) Steyrs are sadly no more. What you get nowadays is a red and white T7/Puma.

    I had a brief play on one of Cefn Llwyd's old school Case Steyrs some years back, pulling horse boxes out of Llanfair Show. Absolute beast of a thing. First time I'd encountered a drive pedal as opposed to a foot throttle and took some getting used to. Plenty of people with more experience of CVT tractors than me argue they have never been surpassed.
