    I can't think of one,our 5000 ended up going on export,same as our original 135,fair sure they went to Thailand.

    My grandads 4000 is still at a neighbouring farm,fair sure that's still on the same engine.

    The steering sensor senses the angle the wheels are at.. this is for the auto 4wd and auto diff lock.. when you steer wider than 15deg it'll turn off the diff (when set to auto). It's easy enough recalibrate or change

    Yep. Sure is. Identical one at home. Love that gearbox. Very handy for loader work for a tractor of its age

    I wouldn't bother fooling around with it I'd say it's flashing up on an awful lot of tms at this stage.

    That's true.. one of the first ones to flash up.. just remember doing it on the m135 and wasn't hard to do.. and the auto diff lock is handy when coming out onto headlands.. but it's not essential and won't do any harm flashing away..

    Is it just high and low on the left stick and 1,2,3,4 and reverse on the other stick?

    No. Left hand stick is forward for low back for reverse, up and forward for high.
    1234 are on the right hand stick

    I was thinking about selling my 7610 series 3 2wd for a 7810 series 3 2wd. Which one would you keep? Which one would be considered the true classic?

    Given that they are both 2wd, I would only change if you need the extra weight/length/6 pot lugging power of the 7810 tbh

    they both are considered true classics but tbh if you want the better pulling power and extra weight as mike said, might be worth the shot but tbh i'd be more inclined to get a 4wd

    Unless you are getting into a lower houred tractor that is in better condition than the one you have I'd stick with your 7610, the devil you know is better than the devil you don't.

    I'd be sticking with the 7610 but I'm a bit odd...

    I use the tractor around the yard mostly so 2wd is fine. It's really maneuverable around the buildings. Sometimes i might have to draw in bales then the 7610 struggles with 2 bales even with a full set of weights on.

    The 7810, if the hours are genuine, are much lower than my tractor. Both tractors are in the same condition. If you were to look at it from a classic point of view i think the 7610 4 cyl is more of a classic as it can be traced back to the ford 7000.

    Any yet for me there is something really desirable about the 7810. 6cykinder power, not common in 2wd etc. only solution is keep the 7610 and buy the 7810.

    What kind of money is it ?

    Think I posted this on here before but with VAT and sterling it is around €17k which is tall money

    That's the tractor. Money is a bit much. It would depend what i could get for my own and then you have transport down to the south.

    1988 my uncle bought a new 7810 2wd to pull the forager,year after he got a tb turbo fitted then promptly boiled it on the forager:eek3: the year after we fitted an engine on the forager and he swapped the 78 in for a 7610 4wd,at the time I wanted to swap 4wd onto the 78 but was told it couldn't be done:undecided: he never bought a 2wd tractor again.

    For the money there ought to be beetter value out there unless of course a person specifically wanted 100hp2WD or specifically wanted that model.
