Where to look for tractors?

Recommended Posts

Theres a galway based contractor with well over 20,000 hrs on a t130. Still going strong.
Cavan/Monaghan valtra with crane said to have 30,000 haven't seen it in the flesh mind.
Was on a job where a 16k hr t130 was running the chipper.. it still looked fresh considering the hours.

Guy over here is running a big Valta with 22k hours on it. He tows and powers a big Heizo with it.

All that's needed doing to it apart from services has been on alternator.

 

Pretty impressive.

Thanks all. GIven me a few more places to check.  Yep, buying without seeing makes me nervous, but I think I'd rather get the right machine with that risk than the wrong machine local.

 

Valtra 6350 a good machine?  There are two for sale with loads of hours but for about the right price:

I bought a digger from Andrew Wilkins a few years ago, not the cheapest dealer but I've never regretted buying from him 😁👍

Still looking and sat on the fence waiting for something here as well. Paris tractors get some nice clean examples in

I’m amazed none of you lot have snapped up that new Holland crawler in Maclean’s. Fancy it myself for subsoiling but it would be the thing with a winch on the back!
