"Tractor is a long wheel base Range Command, 40km, terraglide front axle, mechanical spool valves.
Tractor is used 95% of time to tow a vertical auger manure spreader, 15-16 tonnes of manure, 8 tonnes of trailer. Requires every horsepower under the bonnet.
The tractor has been very reliable, as per my T6030 range command, and T7.200 range command.
Mechanical faults: viscous fan bearing @ 150hrs, hyd. pressure pump @ 2400hrs (both warranty work).
- Teir 3 torque from 1400rpm is nowhere as good as new Teir 4 T.7.200
- No control for 3PL implement lift rate. Would help to "feather out" as we lift a long pre-ripper/cultitiller/seed drill outfit. Good control of everything else.
I would recommend a T6000/T7 range command tractor to anyone."
