Fine looking machine, forget that 7720 and buy her lol
Lovely looking range of tractors the 8100 series but they had about the same reliability as the 3.0 litre troopers. There's a reason most 8100's have low hours done. They didn't always keep going. The 8200 series are what the 8100 should have been and are a good tractor.
I wouldn't be a fan of the funk box either
Even when working right it is a frustrating gearbox to use
I've never had the experience of operating one with that box. Were they rough or jumpy?.
If I had a need of serious power then I'd be looking to the 8280 MF.
Absolutely hopeless at road work they could get warm enough to melt the fuel tank.
as hot as a power command tm?
I used to drive a nh with the funk gearbox,it was an absolute belting tractor,I just couldn’t ever own one though.
The 6100’s were supposed to be a ball too, the one series we skipped here over the year
It must not have been that bad, It's sold already!
The purr of that engine alone.
late ones were ok
I've a MF 8240 with the funk 18 speed box. Great machine which I find easy to drive. There's a few anomalies with that gear box though, never stall her and get gearbox recalibrated once a year and it wont ever let you down.
Yes,great engine and gearbox control was excellent,there an old gearbox now and knowledge of them in my area would be zero.
at least theres a vast knowledge of them on here in the form of skimmer
Am I right in saying all the 6190's were good machines due to being a late addition to the range? All manual shuttle, no gear issues and updated brakes?
I think they were high enough to take 20.8's or 650's too.
1997 Massey Ferguson 6140 Dynashift c/w Loader
Very nice little tractor.
See the new Massey 8s starts at 156 000 plus vat.
Youd buy 20 acres for it
I say that’s retail price if u went to buy one I be expecting to pay 20 percent less, Masseys prices are hard to follow sometimes.
Only a paltry 16 acres then..
Would you predict a further 20 percent drop for a low houred 12 month old example.
The 20 , or 16 , acres will be there for ever .
But it might last as long as you
I don’t buy much new machinery.Is the idea with the retail price that it makes the buyer feel like they’ve negotiated a great deal. Or is it that when selling a s/h one the dealer can point to it costing a fraction of the price of a new one(retail price) or as having a good residual using the -20% price depending on the customer he’s selling to?
