I noticed that it has a stated 81.8" wheel base in 4x4. That is longer than the current Workmaster 50/60/70 series which is 77.5" and shorter than the current T4 which is listed as 82.8". I bet it is the same chassis as the T4 series and they put in the current 50/60/70 engine, 12 speed shuttle option, and cab. Makes sense to me. Guess they decided to leave out the buddy seat to save money along with the manual spring seat. They are trying to hit a 35K-40K price point. Probably made in Turkey.

In a cabbed version you think they will keep the price point that low? I felt like mid to upper 40's for an optioned out 75. But I hope it's more in line with your thoughts for sure!

New Holland t4.75
Around here a T4.75 is priced around 46.5 K cash and 48.5 financed. Thinking about it the only difference in a 12x12 hydraulic shuttle would be engine, buddy seat, and air ride seat unless they go with only 1 rear scv versus 2 and perhaps cut the tilt steering wheel and other cab options. The 70 would need to be priced 5K under the T4.75 to offer a competitive alternative IMHO.

I have a WM 55. It's a tier 4 interim and has about 600 hrs on it. It has been trouble free but has sat a lot the last 2 years. I have also wondered about the gearing. My old Shibarau has 16 gears on it. That was nice once I found the right gear for everything.

Unless they let the WM 75 take place of the T4 75 powerstar and skip straight to the T4 85. Especially being both are about the same size class tractor. But, if they are trying to get into that class seriously I agree $42-$45k with cab and loaded in a WM 75 would make it a serious contender.

But then you now have the MF 4707 loaded with cab for $44k now and that is a seriously nice tractor with tons of features.

just so you know when you buy one knock 15hp off what the side of the tractor model is then you know what you have to the PTO, a 55 only has 40hp I am sure the CNH version will be the same

My old WM 50 was rated at 53 and 45. The 60 was rated at 60 and 53. Can't remember the 70 specs. I think it was 70 and 62. Don't know the validity of those but that was the NH literature.

yea I got my numbers from their website the 55 = 54 gross/40 PTO, the 65= 64 gross/50pto, the 75 = 74gross/60pto.......fuzzy math on them exaggerating things but they all do it to some degree -

Turby_1700 was referring to the WM 50,60,70 the thread was originally about. You're referring to the new WM 55,65,75 we derailed this with. Lol

correct I was just stating that regardless if its a 50/60/70 since you cant purchase them other than leftover stock or used and the OP isn't sure he is going used and maybe new I was stating the ratings - for the 50/60/70 is 45/51/62 so know what you are getting was my point I know there are posts on here that people buy something and then realize when they get home they have something else ;-) and then don't have enough power !!!!

a 15hp deficit is huge in a presuming 75 hp tractor and only having 60 or a 55 only having 40 it makes a ton of difference when you to go hooking implements on things.

read a post on here yesterday guy bought a tractor and is reeling from not having enough power - spending 25K in his case and being sick when you cant get your job done would be awful - so just trying to help and of course buyer beware
