    Some very good details above, the only think I will add is that most of the L/35 models were sold with the manual shuttle so to get the power shuttle you probably need to be looking at a TL A.

    Also you could buy them in red too if you wanted as the Case IH JXU range.

    Yep more or less bang on. Some of the later tl's can be got with electric shuttle, 03 onward ... roughly. Tlas all have it I think

    i,ve a tl 90 here and i,d agree with all that the lads have been saying , definitely go for the power shuttle if you,re doing loader work pat timmons in carlow had a couple of tl 100s with power shuttles advertised a while ago but don,t be surprised if you can buy a tsa for the same money as tl,s any where you look

    Id buy a tsa only we have to get rid of d 7840 its to tall for a shed in winter for feeding and dont want to spend an arm and a leg buying a loader for d 40 then haveing to spend a ball of money changing d roof around. Was there any difference in terracotta tls and blue 1s or is it just d paint?

    I have a TL90A with a manual shuttle, if I was going again I would get the power shuttle, she wouldn't be great on bray's, even with an empty dump trailer you would need to change down gears and early at that too, other than that I couldn't fault her

    just the paint although i,d love a terracotta one, they,re great for low sheds and rust isn,t a problem , you won,t have a problem getting rid of the 7840 anyway

    D terracotta looks well on them i think. Id hope to get rid of it easy but finding a lad that wants to pay for it seems to be a problem lots of lads wants it for 6 and 8 grand

    it seems to be the case that up to 8k lads have cash but after that its a loan they,re looking for and banks aren,t interested in loaning small amounts, a dealer would surely give you that for her as a trade

    She must have good go in her!
    SLE have no export demand, but you would imagine a good one would be worth more than €8k, a breaker would nearly have to pay that to get something worth breaking

    Any kind of a tl will cost 20 plus and probably the loader on top of that so the 7840 won't put a huge hole in it.

    The tl would be an awful lot bouncier than you are used to and wouldn't be as much of a draft tractor as you're user to. Just to be aware of that before you change

    They are a very short tractor alright, a step below the likes of a TS110, 4355 etc
    @declanc304 , seen as you are not getting offered much for your 7840, would keeping it, and getting something like a 30e or 2cx be worth thinking about for around the yard?

    A TL series or 5050 NH will be the more powerful newer version of your Fiat 7090.
    Great tractor compared to the Fiat , but a long ways back from the 40 series NH.

    If the 7840 is half as good as you say it is , you would be mad to let it off , at 12 or 13 grand.
    Fix your shed so you can fit any modern tractor into it , with the money needed to change the tractor.
    Job done. Tractors haven't, nor won't get smaller.

    That would work too! Although he will still need a loader for the 7840

    Id love to if funds allowed me to. I dont know much about 2cx iv never been close to 1 for a gawk but they look a nifty machine. My other thing is we dont have much use for to justify d 40 really and no big machinery for behind it and i can get a heavy tractor off my relation he has a few big tractors if needed

    Modifying sheds is well spent money.
