@declanc304 just rereading my post from last night I was a bit rude running down your tractor. That was not my intention, I was just trying to back up my thoughts.



Little scope mucky, I'd rather spend the excess on upgrading a few machines or a bit more steel and concrete which is a better use of cash and tax allowances. Ive no interest in borrowing money for depreciating assets and starting on that merry go around. That's just the way I am.

If you are leaning towards a TSa forget about 20k, It's 30k you need for anything decent and even then :scratchhead: and more still for a 6010.

And It's over 8 years for machinery, 7 years is for sheds and land improvement.



Mike answered it already I'd say but any change I'll let you know JohnBoy.


Ah i get ya. It's horses for courses I suppose. With me not being on the outfarm all of the time, I need to ensure that it's safe for whoever is doing the work - be it me or anyone else. Something reliable with first turn start is also vital. Added in that I could get some extra benefit from the right tractor on the home farm, and I think it would be a good investment. Couple that with the added benefits of putting depreciation against tax and it makes it a bit more justifiable in my circumstances.

But as you point out, what suits me doesn't necessarily suit you.

I have been eyeing TSA's for a while now. You're talking €25k to €30k depending on spec, hours and condition. The equivalent Case is a good bit less but scarce enough. T6010's aren't too plentiful either. But for the spec that they are, they aren't over priced. I see a very low houred one in a dealer in the north that would come in at €34k delivered.

Needs a gearbox repair - it can be costly in them. 10,000 hours is quite a lot for one of them too.
Depends on whats wrong. A lad i know fixed 1 for less than €200 was only a worn bushing under d gear lever preventing it from going into some gears. D lad that sold it was told by a mechanic that d box was gone needed a full rebuild

Hi @nashmach only seeing this now. Problem with buying something close to home is everyone else is looking for similar so it might be better to look in the UK (as Sterling is weak at the moment) or even France if you could get @Sheebadog to keep an eye out.

I have not really been looking at used tractors since I got fixed up but here are a few that caught my eye but you might need to haggle on price. Not sure if your budget was including or plus VAT

Drove a T6010 Plus for 2 days about 8 years ago, absolutely loved it. Animal of a tractor to pull a load of grain.

May have been because it was Plus spec and ex ag college though...

What would its main dutys be nash.

Youd hardly get away with a 2 wd

That must have gotten edited out as I see my idea of keeping this low key has been blown off course...

Basically a sub for the 9880 and taking the heavier work from the 3600

So:
Spreading fertiliser with a 1.25t spreader
Spraying possibly with a 1000lt sprayer in time. 600l for now
Drilling with a MF30
Hauling with a 10t trailer
Ring rolling
A bit of harrowing with 10ft harrows of various descriptions
Potentially ploughing but not fussed on that!

A 2wd would do a lot of that work nicely.

Big tractors are grand but threading lightly on the land is good.
