    Yes, quite strange, I guess you would need to see it in person.

    Probably the worst €10k+ tractor on the internet right now.

    I might be a little biased. I'm sure we were very unlucky but if I was to go through our history with a certain 3000 series Massey you wouldn't believe me.

    What gearbox? What sort of issues? Always had a soft spot for a 3000 series especially a 3095 or 3120. Not too different on the surface to a T2 5xxx series Massey.

    3645 dynashift. Bought new, serviced and looked after. Had the box open 6 times in 10,000 hours. Studs came loose twice in the top of the box and it mangled itself. Bearings collapsed. PTO clutch pack drive shaft rung twice before MF realised it wasn't up to the job. And then there was the hydraulic system, electronics, pick up hitch and 4wd coupling system. I'm sure we were unlucky but never again.

    More bodging on an elderly MF,steering was very stiff when the oil was hot so went about replacing the orbital.
    Main dealer was €900+vat,got another quote for €500 + vat from the uk.
    QTP do this for€304 delivered so I’ll see how it goes.
