    They will be missed. Not least for Sunday opening at harvest time, but you certainly paid for the privilege

    That man you mention with the 188 found that tractor years after selling it and bought it back and did it up to as near as new condition as you'd get. His son has it and a few others now @jf 850

    Different man we are thinking of , and different 188. H P. One of the 188s was traded for a Q cab 7610 nearly 30 years ago , bought by a man near here , reconditioned, and a hedgecutter put on it . He sold it soon after. The 1977 was kept by the original owner , and I think itself and the 7610 were sold for export 10_ 15 years ago. They drew a lot of cattle for a while with a tandem axle trailer behind the 7610 , before buying a truck to do it .

    I was in that yard numerous times in the late 90s early 00s,he couldn’t get tractors fast enough to sell them.
    Sold huge numbers of 40sTS and TMs.
    There’s an 08 plate 6030 near me,he wouldn’t have sold too many after that.
    Limerick doesn’t even has a NH dealer within the county anymore,their sales figures in limerick must be tiny since he folded.

    I don't know anyone going to Colemans for tractors now.
    Cronin in newmarket seems to shift a good shot of them but AFAIK he would t be selling new ones

    In fairness he knows his stuff on the older ones anyway. Sound for repairs and advice.
    Don't think he is particularly cheap to buy from though in s/h tractors

    Will New Holland be replacing them with someone else in the area?
