New Holland 8360

What are the high and low points of a ford/new holland 8360? I am looking at one(they want $22,250 delivered for it) and wonder if they are reliable? It is MFWD with 8300 hours. Is this high hours for a tractor like this? What transmissions do they have? I am asking these questions because I have only used John Deere's and know nothing about Ford/New Holland tractors. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

From the ad it looks pretty nice, has some killer weight out front for the power level of the tractor. If you are looking to put a cab on this thing that is going to be one heck of a chore. The old man had that idea once with a 4630 Deere but for the price of the cab alone and the amount of work put into it I told him he was on his own, which means it would never get done, so he passed it by.

We bought competive tractors and took them apart for us engineers to look at. We bought the highest horsepower Genesis at the time rated at 250 HP. The final drive was sized for about 120 HP so would appear to be a little weak behind a 250 HP engine. The newer New Holland tractors use the Magnum final drives so should be an excellent tractor.

We ran some 8560's as snowmobile trail grooming tractors. Had the 18 speed power shift in them. Biggest issue was the electronic displays. Kept getting fault codes on the hydraulics. Shut them down, restart and they were fine. Never any engine or trans problems with them. Typical diesel fuel/icing issues, as they were run in very cold northern Michigan conditions. Had to change filters often, and run additive, but that was more a condition of the weather rather than the brand of tractor.

Well I have never used one, can tell ya it's the same thing as a Fiat M135 which anything that says Fiat on it scares me right away, if you have ever had to work on a Fiat/Oliver you know what I mean. It did have the 456 (7.5L) engine in it which is supposed to be bullet proof and at 115hp should last near forever. That's about all I know, remember any used tractor is only as good as it's previous owner. One more thing to think about is parts availability. We have one ford TW10, which shares nothing in common other than the paint with the 8360, but the closest dealer is around 60 miles away and they are useless, there is a good dealer about 80 miles away but that's a long way to drive to get a widget. Even though CNH Capital is the holding company for both Case and New Holland, Case dealers can't get you parts. I'm more of a Deere guy than anything also and after owning one ford, it's a decent tractor, but I won't take another one.

On a side note, this wouldn't happen to be the one at M&S would it?

Technically speaking, the 8360 and your TW10 don't even share the same paint. They're a different shade...

The tractor has a Genesis engine. They had an 18x6 powershift and a 24x12 syncroshift I think. The remainder of the drive train is of Fiat parentage. I'm not very familiar with them but haven't heard anything bad either....

For what it's worth, if this is the same open station tractor asked about on the Ford board, move on. You don't put cabs on them although you could probably wind the power out of it easily enough...

Neighbour has an 8560 I think with the 18 speed powershift. Has had a fair amount of electrical problems. He has about 6000 hours on his so far. I think he has put 4 lift pumps in the tank so far. Most of the electrical problems are the connectors I believe. If you buy a used one it would pay to pull them all apart and get some good electrical grease in to stop corrosion.

Rest of the tractor has been A-1. Uses it for plowing, all their loader work and before they bought the TW-30? to pull their old small no till drill.
