    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.

    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.

    The 6100’s were supposed to be a ball too, the one series we skipped here over the year

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Would you predict a further 20 percent drop for a low houred 12 month old example.

    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?
