    Default Mahindra Tractors, Reliable?

    I'm in the market for a 50-100 hp tractor/loader, used or new, but I don't want to break the bank with a big 3 new tractor. I am curious about reliability/company stability issues with a mahindra. Any feedback would be helpful.

    They seem to be the 'up and coming brand'. Lots of Mahindra followers on here.

    Either a 7520 or 8560 will fill the bill. Very good machines, only downfall in my opinion is that they only have 12 gears, would be nice to have a 16 speed power shuttle.

    Thanks Don87, MtnView and Flusher.

    No negatives so far, that is promising. But yes, more gears are better, but 12 is manageable.

    Own a Bota which plan on keeping but next tractor purchase will give India RED very hard look !

    BTW : Brian if he buys one don't forget to teach him the tapping on the dash trick.

    Ask the owners of the first models of the kubota M7040 about dash problems.

    I have the 5010HST Cab just under your 50HP but so far she is doing everything I ask of her. I had one minor problem and the dealer had it fixed in a couple of hours and back to me the same day.
