Was there poor performance from some of the 2021 New Model lexions this harvest or was it just sales talk from a rival dealer . Did class put in an extra drum and shorten the walkers ?
Even TFM cannot carry a €200K combine without selling it . Usually high value rival machines are exported so as not to displace a new sale of their own brand as they are under extreme pressure to reach the €13 million sales target that the mothership has laid down for them .

Other brand fresh SPFH sat out front of local TFM for 2 years.

Was that a common tactic of one of the diet feeder companies to always have some very new competitors trade ins advertised, yet when people would try to buy them they were suddenly just sold

Yeah that and a yearly sale day with ads for weeks before listing low budget machines that didn’t exist, but if you went looking for them they were very keen to explain how the only machine for you was a brand spanky new one

What size are you after. Friends down the road traded in their 2264 with Timmons. I believe last I looked it's still sitting in the yard.
Is that a 6 walker machine?
Im not too well up on the jd numbering but something 5 walker with a 16ish foot header, comparable with a tx63-65?

yeah. She's a 6 walker. I think the next size down 2258 would be a 5 walker. a tx65 would be a nice alternative. Don't know much about new hollands combines, Claas and John deere would be the 2 main players around here.

Yea, it will be difficult to find someone prepared to give that much for it.
They are a great little combine though.
A DF 2680 would be in a different league altogether.
Were there any differences between the late and early ones aside from the colour?
I know this is an old post but just wondering can't any one remember how much that 1530 was

View attachment 100241£37500 was it yourself or Hamilton
I know this is a lovely machine, but if a dealer did buy it to pass on, what sort of money will he need for it?.
£37500 plus auction fees?, plus transport to N.I, plus a profit on top- its alot of £££ for a 25ish year old machine, but I guess thats maybe just where the market is at the minute.
£37500 is just over €44000 today according to google.
