Holder Tractors

Recommended Posts

Ever since seeign the one we used to have at Newton Rigg, I've always had a bit of a hankering for a Holder A60 or similar. We're currently using a 30hp Landini on the forwarding traielr which is doing a really good job for it's size btu we are on an unusually flat site at the mo.

 

Long term we're thinking of getting hold of something with more power, bit heavier and also a bit less fragile underneath.

 

The Holders seem to be maiking more sensible money thatn they were when I first looked into them a few years ago and generally I've only ever heard good feedback about them but I've seen/heard of a few that have needed new engines/lot of work on the engine.

 

Are they prone to engine problems or are these liekly to be worn/abused?

 

I would consider another alpine, but for what I want it for I'd really be needing 85-90hp to get the weight/clearance and they are like rocking horse poop

The Ferrari is a good piece of kit, agile and powerful for its size , it is an investment as is all kit , good luck in finding one.

add to the above , the last time I tried to find a holder ( apart from Steve's one ) I was outbid by a dealer who was exporting them to holland, there is a demand for them and with the euro as it is ! good luck in finding a good one here

I considered buying Steve Holder skidder. I sat on my money one day hoping to have a bigger tractor. The Holders are ace little things. If you watch Riko the ocasional big alpine tractor comes up.

Thansk for letting me know - It'd be a bit small for what we need and it'd most likely be more than we're looking to spend.

 

I did used to have a 48hp Carraro in the woods a few years ago and know that if I was getting another alpine it would need to be a big one to cope with the trailer when fully loaded on rough going.
