8160 Posted by Jordan on 01/05/2012

I bought this tractor to pull my new miller pro sprayer, I own a case IH 5250, but it has too many monitors already in it. And I was actually looking for Another 5250 because I like it so much, but I saw this 8160 at the local dealer and tested it out and actually liked it a lot.

The tractor is very reliable, has excellent lighting, and the cab does have a lot of features the 5250 doesn't. The only con is that it does not go into the rabbit gear in high gear, you need four wheel drive for the extra speed which sucks. But over all it handles well and preformed as expected. And it also has an 411 cubic inch motor which allows you to increase your power immensely if you add a turbo!

ITEM INFORMATION
Model year: 1998 Date Purchased: 04/22/2009 Number of Hours: 1900
