Thanks a million Arthur, I'll have a go at freeing it tomorrow.
Would be a real beauty if it had the full cab
i wonder why he didn,t put the front grill on as its there in the photoes , its impressive though alright
Six inch pipe??
Lot of work gone in to it.
Hard to know what it's worth??
Managed to free them after a bit of a struggle and it's fine now. Thanks again
Good stuff, you could easily make shite of them if you weren't patient trying to free them.
Another nice one. Probably big money as well. Would look well in front of a trailed silage harvested.
It was looking good yesterday at the tractor run in Kilbrittain https://photos.app.goo.gl/Jg25ufZAnYBnqFpB6
She's a lovely tractor
That fella is only a few miles over the road from me. I was talking to him at a tractor run he went to with it and he said that he bought 2 of them in (either Cork or Kerry) and made 1 of the 2 of them. She is very impressive and sounds sweet too.
An east cork man had 4 of them in his working fleet onetime, 2x2 & 2dt's i think they were, all from new..
@Limestone Cowboy did you say you bought the tractor from a dealer with warranty and he didn't sort this problem out?
Wouldn't inspire much confidence
Ya and I brought it back to him afterwards aswell and he obviously did nothing with it. They have more interest in selling than servicing anyway.
Whats lads experiences with L and TL new hollands. Power shuttle or mechanical shuttle which is better thanks
@muckymanor has a 5050 ,AFAIK, which is the newer version of a TL 100. I think @humungus has A TL 100.
I do know the 6635 predecessor had a Scottish clutch , if used with a loader by a non sympathetic driver . So , id say definitely go powershuttle.
Our 5050 has been faultless since we got it new in 2009. 4500 hours on it now. The only problem that we had with it was that the alternator fell apart about 3 years ago and a new one was quite expensive compared to alternators for other tractors. Ours has a power shuttle and it has not given a bother.
If I want to find fault with it, it's that it's 97hp, but a very light tractor. Yes, it's easy on ground and very nimble around the yard, but you need an extra bit of care with a heavy load behind it such as a dump trailer or tanker.
It would be mostly loader work it would be doing here dropping in wraps. And d usual topping spreading fertiliser and dung spreading
If it's intended for loader work then the powershuttle is the only way to go.
Would wheel weights do much for it in your opinion? We wouldnt do heavey pulling much but ya never know what could be put on it around here
If budget allows il definitely get a power shuttle model seen a few on ag affaires not badly priced but i wouldnt know what to look out for on 1
Wheel weights will help but the wheelbase is so short on these that it won't be fully effective I think. Always have a weight on the back of the one here, she would be very lively without.
Isn't much to look out for on them really, they have an iveco engine which is pretty faultless. Just the usual checks on that. The pickup hitch design is not great and can be very sloppy, drop the hitch and shake from side to side to check for play.
Also the guides either side of the hitch for the release get worn at the bottom and can fall out.
If it's manual shuttle the cough release is very high so don't panic for this but do give it a good try out .
Compare the wear on pedals to the hours advertised. In my experience these tractors hold their shape very well and if anything they could have a few hours more than stated.
We traded one with over 10k hours which no man could guess had more than 5 looking at it
I don't know. A neighbour has front weights for his 5060. He rekons it gives it a bit better traction. Ours is a limber little tractor - if you put weights on it, it becomes cumbersome, in my view. Its harder on tyres, and harder on ground. Its 6 of one and half a dozen of the other.
Thanks il keep all that in mind. We have a 70-90 thats rusted through for foddering at home and shes a dinger. Their an expensive little tractor iv noticed
Yep, couple of grand dearer than any comparable tractor I'd say. I would say they are worth it though. They really are like the fiat you have without the rust. Apart from he electric shuttle if you go for that obviously. You'd be very unlucky to get a troublesome one I think
