I can’t remember now,looked decent value when I saw the ad.
6290 , wide tyres 13k hours. In good nick. Needed the usual front grill, arm rest and pick up hitch lever. Price plus vat.
Talking myself into buying this.
You'll need to update that tractor quote to an Optum 300 so
if the floor and chassis are in decent shape, it could be pretty good value for it
Old lorry chassis though, with the diff axles and no brakes
Looks fairly tidy , haven't seen one of them in a while
That looks very tidy. Especially considering it says 5500 hours. No mention of twine required .
Yeah most of them I ve seen were rough enough, it's a neat little thing.
They shared some drive components with older Claas combines and the Jaguar SF so bits should be easy enough to get for the drive unit, and I guess standard Mengele parts in the harvester section.
Serious value at that money. Those big feeders depreciate something horrid
Will you/have you purchased?
How many cubic meters is it?
If your not interested...I would be.
Let me know please.
It’s 40 cube,I’d have to remove some roof to fit it in one of my buildings because it’s 150mm too high,I’d also have to fit an elevator to fill a trough,in reality I’m a couple of years off buying it as I’m planning on a new feed passage so I’ll not need an elevator.
If your interested check the front gearbox for leaks as the front reservoir looks empty,otherwise it’s very good value.
What height is it? I’m constrained to 3.2m.
It looks good value in fairness. Transport would be fairly saucy for me, but it’s coming in at good value.
There wouldn’t be any need for me go see it...is it far from you? :).
Axles wouldn't make much of a difference if the shaft is taken out, if anything I think it's a plus as they are designed to take big weight. as for the brakes I see a 2nd hose or am I seeing double. Either way it's still decent value in my eyes
Free shed for someone in louth https://www.donedeal.ie/farmsheds-for-sale/free-shed/25831818
And it’s gone now!
It’s 3.5m high,located about 250miles north of me.
What is this exactly, never seen or even heard of one before. I guess you twist and tighten a coil spring and then it releases giving a hammer blow
see a few of them for sale on ebay
Free sheds dont hang around long! Looked to be a 2 bay round roof hayshed and a two bay lean two with galv cladding in good nick I'd say it be hard to put s price for someone to dismantle and erect it again u would need 2k I'd say nice bit of work in it all
Not a lot to lose,when it breaks big time scrap it.
Anyone know what these things are like, and what they’re worth?
MF 8480, 2007, 7k hrs, new engine and gearbox at 5k hrs.
I drive one infrequently. Animal of a tractor.
It came onto a farm second hand at maybe 5-6 hrs old or thereabouts. Never gave any bother other than a sensor for front suspension and a leak in an oil pipe.
Not sure but there was some mods done on them at some stage - something to do with the engine stiffness and torsional strain but someone on here might know of it. Maybe that why your one there had a new engine ?
It’s really cheap horsepower and I want it for a job for no more than 400hrs a year.
Has it got a Sisu engine?
Did the modification work?
has the sisu engine alright ,900 series fendt gb and back end,classic tractor covered them in a high hp mf feature recently
