    Doesn’t look like genuine hours to me. Cab upholstery worn. High number reg plus front linkage looks like an import. How could an import that went to limerick and ended up in Fermanagh only have those hours....

    I’d like a good look at the pedals, hitch and rear linkage.

    Tbf i'd say i would prefer a tm155 with range command than a 165 with power command. Just a better transmission

    Looking at the picture of the back of it the hitch is up nice and snug and not hanging down like one of those tractors would with high hours. Of course it could have been done up to but the lift arms look in very good condition as well. Then again where the passanger seat is/was looks shook enough so I don't know :unsure:.

    Paint work is decent as well. If the done up the paint, cab will get the same attention. But what boggles me is the black chassis. Early tm's had a grey chassis.

    Fair enuf. But again, the cab will get the same attention as the body work you know.

    Range command is a far better not to mention nicer transmission to operate. I can see the idea behind the power command in no need to change ranges but if a driver isn't able to press in a little button to change range he/she isn't much of a driver. Power command trans are rough between some of the gears as well. At least any of the ones I've driven have been less then stellar imo.

    I've noticed with PC is that when it warms or has a load behind it, it runs a bit smoother but even then not as smooth as RC.

    I think it's gearing down there worse then accelerating. You'd have to wonder at the engineers who designed it that they couldn't get it smoother?.

    If that tractor was as good as it makes out to be , you’d struggle to buy it off that man for that money, that yoke has been around the clock twice I’d say ,
    Its a import I’d say , I’d rather see one with genuine high hours and tidy

    Tbf NH been like that since they got digital dash boards never showing a 10,000 symbol or number saying "this is the 2nd run of the clock".

    That was a big tractor in 2000, highly likely it was bought by a contractor, who surely put the bones of 1000hrs a year on it.
    I would imagine she had 5500 hrs up by the mid noughties

    At least it has RC but would want new tyres.

    I would agree with you 100% that the RC is a better transmission than the PC,but the automatic mode on the power command is a real advantage on the road it changes up and down like a dream.Its great when pulling out heavy load on a bad road.You can concentrate on driving and it looks after the gear changes.

    I have driven them r.c. and it also has automatic mode in each range .Is the only driving difference between r,c, and p.c. is that you have to clutch between ab&c ranges in the r.c.

    Little button on the front of the gear handle thingy for changing the ranges or the clutch pedal either.

    Theres a mod some lads done to pc boxes i think it was an extra disc somewhere to help smooth them out. I drove 1 on a dump trailer 2 year ago for a day and she was smoother than most rcs iv driven but ir was a very well minded tractor that got anything it needed and sadly wasnt for sale
