    Could I view that report anywhere?

    Read an American forum there now and the general consensus is that they’re a horrendous crock...!
    However I’d like to hear from people that know them well before I’d spend...they must be very cheap for a reason.

    There’s one near me and it’s forever giving trouble , only does 3/400 hrs a year and sometimes less as it’s stopped so much. Has had a transmission rebuild last year and it’s still giving trouble. Serious power and weight tho when it’s gong

    Like everything it could be a lemon and it’s the only one I know off . It does serious heavy work but I do know it was parked up for good last spring in the middle of planting after being in the garage for 2 or 3 different problems in a month or 2

    Yes sisu. And there has been no troubles since. Doesn’t do big hours but It works a seven furrow Reversible plough And big square baler And such like when on the go.
    From what I know, whatever the issue was, it had been addressed during the previous ownership. It is an 09 year tractor.

    You’d imagine. With those shared components From sisu and fendt Etc That someone some where would be able to get on top of the issues, though obviously not in that case.
    I’d expect The boys that have machinery like this are usually no fools!

    Yes, it's advertised as a Collins Teleshift, no age given. Asking for £6000.

    Id be inclined to agree , that it seems balue enough.

    But it sounds like you'd need a Minder , when approaching the seller :undecided:

    It was probably used for something like this



    There is some good videos of them extracting the marble blocks, it is a real test for machinery. This is well orchestrated from 1:50 on

    It's not on It's money in my view depending on how it runs. I wouldn't be keen on buying it though if that was the attitude of the seller!!
