    There would have been several of these here , but its over 50 years ago since the late Richard Moynan took the last Nan.

    I sold a 12speed box to a lad with one,never heard if he got it fitted,the multi box was ok but I’d have preferred a 12 speed.

    John Deere 6400 , I remember when they were launched, seemed to be just such a neat looking machine.
    There's one in the museum at the JD factory in Mannheim, been there since it was built, tour guide says they've lost count of the times people have tried to buy it.

    I've driven many of the most popular john deere models, 7810s, 4955, 3650s etc. 6400 is the one I always had a soft spot for

    As a tractor series, 'TMs' have to be up there, they have (and continue to do) done some amount of work, with very little fuss.

    @Mike: I think they should be the comeback king of tractors as the 60 series (first go at them) we’re a disaster.

    Mine would be a toss up between a 824 fendt and a MB Trac 1500 with reverse drive.
    I’d settle for a 7810 Deere if all else failed.

    I drove two in Uk about 20 years ago and they were balls of dung and the two contractors who owned them.
    Whom had pretty much the same consensus, they were very a bit step up from the 8340’s and gave a lot of electrical trouble. The TMs were a completely different beast I remember at the time.
    Never been a Ford/NH fan but the 8340 Sle was an animal of a tractor.

    had an 8360 here. sold it to get the tm165 due to dad wanting the suspension. he regrets selling that tractor. in terms of tugging power, miles ahead of the tm. noticed you have to drop a couple extra gears coming up hills. never dropped revs when mowing compared to the tm and never caused any hassle mechanically. had and have issues with the tm. not a fan of power command. has its moments but as most know, that box saps the power compared to range command. only thing it has over a 60 series was the suspension but even then you can fit cab sus to a 60 series if it has rc. if our tm had rc, be singing its praises. contractor friend of ours still running a 8260. never missed a beat. uncle in canada has an 8360. sent that out years ago when he lost a shed to the wind. if any nh was a disaster it would be the lwb tm

    pretty sure she's screwed to the balls as it is. the 83 was too and still would have it beat. would love to see it on the dyno and see what it can actually do

    A lad I worked with one time got his 8360 dynoed after he bought it. She was putting out 227 at the shaft.

    If she was screwed to the last she'd fill the place with smoke
