The mighty 8340 is moving on and looking at possible replacements. TM is an obvious choice but are expensive. Seen this and thought looked like value. Whats the reliability like on them and whats everyones opinion on them ?

not much wrong with them. deere engine so make sure it got the gasket done :flappytounge:. massey backend as well so a lot of well proven components in them. that one looks clean enough new rear tyres is a bonus. bit of shopping around and you could find one with the grease hungry carraro front suspension as well
