    Looking to change the tractor,only doing ploughing with 4 furrow plough and baling and spraying and carting so no wide wheels needed.
    130-150 hp nothing fancy needed except front linkage and 4 spools.
    What's the most reliable reasonably priced make and model to buy?
    We have most of the dealers within 30 miles.
    Just want a no nonsense capable machine.

    Judging from what I see around I would say a Massey 6480. I don't own one but the ones I know of don't seem to be giving any bother. A T series Valtra wouldn't be a bad buy either and probably be bought for less then the MF.

    MF 6290 if you can find one with moderate hours, you can spend a little on it each year to keep it tidy plus parts and labour are 100% tax deductible or they are in Australia anyway. No cab suspension to play up, and mechanical injector pump much cheaper and more reliable than the common rail perkins that came after it.
