Default massey ferguson 3095/85

welli would like to know as much information about these tractors as possible as we considering one(but then again the tractor reference is different everyday). It would particularly suit us because they are low money and we wouldnt have to worry about finance for it. What i would like to know is:
are they under rated ?
are they electronical nightmares ?
do they have 40k box ?
would they stand up to abuse ?
would they be easily fixed if they broke ?

also if anybody see's some floating about the internet please post it in here but has to be in ireland too expensive to import.

would be very greatful for replies

We had one from new, cira 89-90 ( i think) may of been later im getting old
ours had a good 100HP no tweaking, pulled a 3m kuhn accord combi, 4 leg shakerator, 5 F dowdeswell rev,
any electronic issues honestly no.. minor it can sometimes need to have the battery terminals sorted/cleaned as it likes a good contact.
ours would 20 MPh +
how much abuse?? you dont want to be kicking the arse out of any tractor realy , it was serviced regular etc,
very reliable,
pros, excellent gearbox, dyna shift is seemless, how ever the linkage nder the cab can get sloppy soon sotred with a 10mm spanner, dont rest your hand on the long levers as it wheres the high-low synchro,,
comfy office to sit in all day,
make sure the mirror is still on the back window so you can see the pickup hitch (its the best invention ever..)

the fuel filler cap is by the back window... what a shit place to put a fuel cap.. crap all over it,,,

pto is easy to change pair of long nose pliers to ease circlip,
the door pockets are rubbish the bottom will drop out...

if you can find one get one, we should never have sold ours but the hp needed on the farm meant it had to be "up graded."

David king electronics will probably fix it cheaper than that.

Still as it is I bet it is no less than 10k

Good tractors very underated cheap to buy easy enough to maintain.
The cab is a very comfortable place to spend a day despite no axle or cab suspension.
Cab doors can suffer from rust and they aren't cheap to replace.
The front axle bush will wear without regular greasing which will cause the pinion to run slightly out of line and will chew the splines but easily modified with a hardy spicer if got in time.
Handbrake is internal can break up and send bits flying around the backend rare enough for that to happen though the discs usually shatter in half easy 150 diy fix.
Electrics are simple enough any fault i've ever had was usually traced to a broken/bared wire or bad connection somewhere.
I think all the 5s were 40k with either 16x16 or Dynashift box.
The 3095 is the one to have my one pulls like a train
