Same 60 Vigneron Posted by kurtatphv on 09/06/2011

This is a vineyard tractor designed to be work narrow rows (I have it set up a wide as it will go because of my hillsides and work rows 8.5 feet wide, if narrowed it would work 7' rows maybe narrower).

I use it on a hillside and its low center of gravity makes it quite stable. It has 56 hp at the PTO which is plenty to run my air blast sprayer. It is 4 wheel drive making working on hills easy. I has been reliable but parts are getting hard to find. If I were to replace it, it would be with something that parts are easy to get, probably a Kubota or something similar.

It has a three cylinder air cooled diesel. I worried about cooling but have not had a problem even in 100 degree weather.

The hydrolic system could be a bit beefier. I use it to run a hydrolic hedger, leaf puller, grape hoe, and fork lift as well as the three point lift. I work with each of these implements but could use more volume for some of the heavier users. I would also be nice to have two sets of ports rather than the one.

Nice hydrostatic steering.
