Yes, quite strange, I guess you would need to see it in person.
Massey Ferguson 3080 Turbo
Stupid money for this yoke,probably worth half what’s being asked for it at best.
Something about the paint job doesnt look quite right to me
The doors are missing the Datatronic / Autotronic decals
Probably the worst €10k+ tractor on the internet right now.
Ha, there's probably worse!
Kelly's of Laois had a nice original 3000 series in stock last week and at around 10k it was not a bad tractor.
On a similar theme.
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.
Sorry for bringing back those bad memories!!
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.
Ye deserve a medal for putting up with that over 10k hours
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.
