    I think of all the numerous tractors of that size over the years 2 spring to mind that were particularly trouble free... ford 8100 and MF 698T

    Ones we were scared to start every day included case 1694 and JD 3130

    I have a Hesston 100 90 DT and I have worked it hard. It was built in '89 and has near 3,000 hours on it.

    I have put a water pump on it and rebuilt the alternator.

    Great, brawny beast........ been a very loyal and reliable worker!

    '58 520 JD Dad bought it new and it was our main tractor until 68. Never had a valve cover off of it when we sold it 72. If the fan blade would move it would start even in the coldest weather. Pulled 3-14 plow, 2 row gehl or papec choppers. It worked for a living and never complained. When I went back to MN in 06, guy that bought was still using it as his daily chore tractor and still had never removed the valve covers.
