Big enough price relative to paying a bit more and buying g a fresher lower houred tractor.
in practical terms
Has the old swing back hitch
No air
No 50k
The head would need doing on a preventative basis if not already done
And has 10,000 hours if being bought as a frontline tractor.
the above things are not a reason not to buy it but at €43k you are a lot of the way to something like a T7.200, loader aside.
Tbf when buying a 155, 50k doesn't come into the picture as they never came with it, air is rare and it's 05 model so a sauermann push out would've been out of the question unless you find one with it fitted after but I agree. Could find a good t6080 or t70 series in that price range and for what they are looking for it, makes timmins seem cheap

A bit ot but am i right in saying that valves dropping are more prone to tm than they are 40 series??
have 8240 10k hrs doing 2260 rpm flat out should i be concerned?

interesting how little price difference there appears to be between the pre 96 Ford 7840 and the blue roofed version which replaced it ?

the pre 96 ones gave bother with the SLE , had those problems myself back in the day , fixable but costly

A rather unusual looking version of a 7810

Cool yoke though, would certainly be different to the norm at a tractor run.

Shame it has the H pattern box. Would be a right job with 8x2 box. With or without dual power

Is it possible that it's a Brazilian import or from somewhere similar like that

Was in Majorca for a week back in 2017 ( last foreign holiday ) and its was a fairly rural area on the east of the island , interesting seeing all of the cabless tractors working in the fields while driving past , obviously an entirely different climate

Anyone have a suggestion on a toplink for a 7840 either conventional or hydraulic. Max weight carrying approx 1.5T
I don't trust the thread on my original one anymore.

usually i would say either genuine, but if looking for the hook, maybe up to what a tm or 60 series would use. hydraulic wise, we have a sparex top link. granted it hasnt been used much due us mainly using it on the tm and that be used for trailer work, when we had it on the plough and it worked somewhat well. was able to adjust the top link length on the fly but its main downside on the tm was its length. wasnt long enough when ploughing. didnt even have an quarter of an inch of play in the sliding slot on the plough but it be plenty long on a 40 series as the link arms are shorter on them compared to a tm. great for the fert spinner we think as well. obviously the main issue is it takes up a spool so if you only have 2 spools on the 7840, i'd be slow getting a hydraulic. another couple gripes is also adjusting the length when out of the cab but that cant be helped and the handle thats used to hold up the top link when not in use gets caught on the pipes but maybe thats improved by being half inch wider on newer ones
i will have a look tomorrow to see the dimensions of our top link are

The brochure was not specific to the 6410. It was 5610 to 7610. E bay would be your best bet.

A bit of a pipe dream for me I'd to get a cabless 78 and put an ap cab on like the original prototype!

You wouldn't be alone there but with a crash box as well!

I've got 2 single sheets and 2 multiple page brochures for the Gen III from 5610 to 7610.

6610 on the double!?
had to get the luxury of a super q!
Tell me that you had to unload a few bales somewhere , and the tractor was a back load ?

This is coming from a man who leaves the loader on the tractor year round , but drop the implement for road trips .
Same here the loader has only came off once in the 8 years its been on the tractor. i would regularly take off the forks but it was only a ten minute spin to collect it and had throw out a bale afterwards. no quick attach so its not a drop and go job either to get it off!
