We bought it along with a Brent 544 gravity box. Traded in the 9000.
I talked to the service tech that did the transmission work and I have the work order. They did spend 29K and change on the transmission work and another 1600 on the rear brakes.

Hydraulic flow test looked good and pulled the magnetic plugs on the front axle. No big chunks stuck on the magnets just a little super fine metal on the end. Looked the same as our Gleaner M3 transmission drain plug this fall when I changed the oil in it.

Jacked up the front axle on each side and the king pins were not sloppy. everything seemed tight.
The 3 point was throwing a error code (F011 and F06x cant remember now) and would not move up or down. They are fixing that as well as some other minor details.

Based on the serial number it is a 95 model. Engine dyno at 270 hp. seems a little hot!

We will not be working it hard pulling a IH 24' 496 disk or our JD 235 23' wing fold disk. We eventually want to go with vertical tillage and need HP for that. Thinking about a 4 meter VT disk for next year.

We have our TW 30 for backup. Dad didn't want to drive the 9000 anymore. I used it all last fall for stalk chopping. We also used it on our Unverferth 530 gravity box. The tractor ran good but the creature comforts were lacking. Earplugs were mandatory with the Hiniker 1300 cab.

Can't afford new with only 300 acres. Priced out a T7.270 and that will never happen unless we win the lottery or corn goes to $20 bu.

I hope it works out for you guys. If that 9000 was an open station I would be right up to buy it just to use for play toy purposes. Don't see many 9000s around, especially here NEIL.

The rear tires on the 9000 were like new Continentals and the duals were 60% Armstrongs. The duals are hub duals not clamp on's.
Here is what has been fixed on the 9000 in the last 10 years we owned it:

reman block and head from Alexander tractors less than 1000 hours ago

new clutch

new PTO drive hub

new hydraulic pump

new turbo less than 20 hours ago

new power steering pump

rebuilt dual power when the dual power clutch pack housing cracked

wired lights with relays

Wow J, you're Killin' me!! There is virtually nothing left to replace on that 9000. And anything else you could pretty much do out in the field with just a pair of pliers, LOL. What a cream puff. You should go buy it back and convert it to fenders. Well, let's hope it goes to a good home where someone will appreciate it as much as you have.

I wanted to keep it but dad said it had to go. He is almost 70 and didn't want to drive a rumble wagon anymore.

That cab comes off very easily and there is a pair of fenders on ebay right now. Mine was originally a cab tractor.
