    That's why I put that link up! That one is from the first period when they were imported by Curley's in Galway.

    The spool valves are an after thought mind you!

    It’s nearly 20 years since I drove one she was only a year or 2 old at the time, but floor the throttle and u got enough black smoke to block out the sun. Think she was 240 hp. I think they looked much nicer than the newer MX’s.

    Why are Claas Tractors so cheap? Some of the Tumosan tractors are being advertised with better resale prices than these?
    Compared to other makes of tractor of similar size, these are very good value.

    Is there a pitfall?

    They give a good share of trouble going by the examples of those working locally to me. The Arions are actually a lovely tractor to drive as it so happens, had one on demo before changing last time around but didn't purchase. Hydraulics seem to be a common issue.

    they dont seem any better or worse than anything else round here (unless theres a owners pact not to talk about problems)
    residual values are the main reason here

    it was rumored other makes were working hard to devalue them .
    ours will do 7000 hours over 4 years , some have been bought as low houred second hand and run on longer
    the jd engines gave head gasket problems teir 2 were good teir 3 was a disaster anything worked hard was looking for gead gasket at 3000hrs
    the teir 4 on seem ok had an injector in 1 another 1 liked to regen the dpf 3 times a day till we took the power washer to it .
    gear boxes generally been ok other than the odd solinoid and switchs . beveled washers in clutch packs had a tendancy to crack ,
    jd would be having these engine issues plus they were having turbo problems as well . and mf would be having the same gearbox but both companies well establised where as claas kept on there dealers and a lot of the renault boys got the boot .


    we did once have a ter 3 claas 640 cebis that i recon was put together by hungover apprentices using warranty returns

    What are those Celtics/Axos type tractors like? I know the more complicated versions don't have the best of a reputation transmission wise but vast majority have mechanical linkage controls.
