    Yep as I taught, I Never saw one around here anyway. Heaps of them TW’s alright, big dogs of yokes but they used to a serious amount of donkey work back in the 90’s.

    Mowed silage with one of those , Wouldn't set the world on fire with it's road speed , not half as awkward as you might think , he'll of an improvement on something like a Leyland 2100 , which would have been a forerunner at silage work , around these parts at least.

    None of them big Ford's or Massey were popular around here.
    6cyl crystals or ursus were the silage contractors choice if weapon.
    No tillage worth talking about
    A couple of s/h Deere that were fantastic until the hours got big and back end trouble came

    High horse, everyone that knows me, knows I've a distinct dislike of horses... and if I was on a high one, I'd have a broken arm a long time ago.:laugh:

    Anyways as Marco says, there are far better things to be discussing on here.

    And one more thing, we like to be civil to one another here, I don't see why every second sentence that you have has to have a swear word in it, it's easy to replace it. We have a wide and diverse membership on here, young and old, male and female from many different countries and surely a bit of courteous English is not a big ask.

    I was being perfectly civil if you want to go back over the posts on two threads it was yourself that was coming across with the attitude.
    Your clutching at straws at the swear words there it's a slippery slope if you start telling lads what they can say.
    If it was strong language you'd have a point

    That's just his opinion, a bit vague as he hasn't said why.......... I'm not overly gone on cows but I do like the way they eat heaps of silage and turn it into slurry...

    Whatever about dairy farmers anonymous meetings ,
    There isn't such a thing as weekends on a dairy farm , at this time of the year. Half the time , you wouldn't be certain what day it was :scratchhead:

    She's a grey chassis too. They are easier to extract power from than the black chassis.

    Bit expensive, isn't it? I get it's 3000hrs but when you add the VAT and then if your in Ireland buying it, you're spending around €30,000 right there. You can find yourself a decent TM or 40 series in that price for way less than that.

    Indeed you could find a TM or the TS predecessor and older 40 series for less money but it will not have 3,113 hours on it. You could also get another TS115 for less money but it will not be a low hour one and for some people that will be worth a premium.

    Its worth what someone will pay for it, and If its genuine, it wont sit around for long.

    I never had one but the ts115 is highly regarded I believe.
    Could be turboed if doing heavier work too
