Where to look for tractors?

Recommended Posts

I was in Cheffins last week, some good machines going through. I nicked a 58 plate transit for £450 plus buyers premium. The lad I went with was buying tractors for export. There was plenty of decent tractors going through that he thought were average money.

Not local at all unfortunately.  But tbh I'm not expecting to find what I need super local.

Look on Youtube and look at what some of the lads in Ireland say about hours on Valtra's  


I think those lads in Ireland are saying good things, right?  This is all I came up with on a quick google...
