    I was behind this yesterday afternoon . Ford 8700 doing a consistent 32 mph . Some tyres on the back . I find it a little difficult to take good photos at 32 mph...

    @gone and @Mf240 pulled the cheque books.
    I Bought this about 3 weeks ago . Went to get a wheel cylinder and a gearstick knob.
    Left into garage by a retiring farmer to be sold. I Had no notion but the handy hours sowed a seed.
    A neighbour of mine saw it driving the harvester , and described it as " a pocket rocket ". 4 cyl 128 hp according to tractor data.

    It is more or less the same tractor in ways.
    Same capacity engine , but a lot more gutsy . Supposedly 20 hp more , and feels every bit of it . Wider tyres . We put the weights on the 10641 , when using the buckrake , but dropped them to put back on the loader . 14 or 15 x 50 kg is too much for what id be doing . Makes it Noddy.
    No . 12145 has the agitator left on it. I was going to work the harvester with it still and mower with 12441 , but 3 spools suited JF better. The scrap harvester had hyd controls for the spout , and another needed for pick up. Also , i got a contractor to mow it in 10 fts . The Surgeon hadn't the mower ready. Anyway , it freed up me to do the milking .
    It was from the farmer himself that I bought the tractor . He , and I, both gave garage man something for his trouble .

    Thanks DB.:Thumbp2: .
    Strange enough . Within a mile of here.
    I got that , Mf240 got his MF , a lad who has a small farm and works in an engineeringplace bought a nice 1995 MF 390T 4 wd , to replace a sick engined 165. A retired teacher/ suckler farmer landed a Landini Powrrfarm 2 wd with New Rossmore loader , to replace a 135 , that he bought around 1990...

    Thanks baz . Time will tell , buts seems that way.

    That was the impression I got from garage man , and the reason I bought it. No point in being sorry afterwards, Nd giving ages looking for another. 3499 hrs on it now.

    The stock market doesn't rely on my involvement. I foolishly bought a handful of Eircom Shares , and that was my education in stocks and shares. :scratchhead:

    Not sure if its 14 or 15 x 50 kg weights . I think you know the yard owner well .:wink: @Peter

    About €700 if you had to buy them but nice to have them thrown in.

    He still has a Kubota with a loader. He used it agitating , spreading slurry ,fertiliser and 3 days hedgecutting in the last 2 years , because he asked me did I want to buy a McConnell PA93.

    I think that's a full set of weights . You can put on as many or few as you like . shorter bit of threaded bar if using less.
