    It looks a very tidy tractor, if he spent €7500 he must have done some bigger ticket items, which means the new owner should have less to worry about.
    To me its cheap compared to a scruffy one at €14/15 k

    tbh i wouldn't go for it. i do see what you mean. but you can get a 7840 for a little bit cheaper and still come out better than getting that with the 7840 having more horse power being a 6 pot and it being SLE which is abundant, its a no brainer

    Where is the €7500 spent, wheels and blue bodywork repainted, looks like a new seat, 80% rears, 50% fronts. possibly the gaiters around the gear levers as they get torn easy enough.

    If he has the receipts to prove the work why doesn't he mention the work done in the add. 7500 is a nice bit of work.

    Unless it was abused to death it shouldn't need that money spent at 7500 hrs

    sl is 12 speed with dual power so 24F 24R, earlier sl's were non dual power. sle is 4ranges with 4 powershifts in each range so 16F 16R.

    That's more like a spend after twice the hours I would have thought.

    I agree with Mike though it's better than a scruffy one at 14/15k.

    Even at that you are talking the bones of 20k if you wanted a loader too.

    And which is the more sought after one and least likely to go wrong?

    SL with DP on both counts most would say.

    Have one of each here for over 10 years. wouldn't fault either. SLE is easier on the driver (less clutching). Manual SL DP probably able to take more abuse.
    I know a fella who has 2 SLE models and wouldn't touch a DP, he reckons they are more troublesome. A lot depends on driver i think, especially with sle.

    had a quick look at the front sus on the tm. on our tm we have a some form of a brace bolted onto the front of the tractor and leads all the way back to the cab. the previous owner had a front linkage which he took off before sending the tractor to us (my dad and him agreed that he can take the fl). and i presume that this brace was for extra support for the fl. but when i looked more closely a ram from the axle to the chassis is right up against the brace. i'm wondering if that could be one of the reasons the front sus is not working. i'd say the accumulator and control valve (i think it is) would have to be checked as well
