Hello, not sure if there is a Claas tractor thread, couldn't find it anyway so said i'd start one. I'm considering buying a SH tractor in the new year as we have nearly 15,000 hrs on a 7740 doing 900-1000 hrs a year and while it hasn't let us down yet I can't rely on it and it's showing it's age in wear rather than cosmetically. I'm looking for opinions on the '07-'11, 500 series Arions, or maybe a 430 does anyone own one, how do you find it. They seem to be a bit of value second hand and are made from good components. Main duties would be diet feeder, trailed and mounted spraying (18m is the plan), fertiliser, small amount of ploughing with 4f reversible overum. Any input is welcome. I'm also considering a NH T6020/6040 or case equivalent or even a Nh t5.105. The JD options are too pricey for me.
