Wondering what model # front assist tractor around 200 hp would be a good reliable one to buy for $35,000-$60,000. Will probably buy case ih or a deere.

I'm looking row crop. I found a 8430 for $10,000 and was going to look at it and the dealer had it listed on the web site. I got there and they didn't even make the trade and have it. I figured for 10 g it could stay hooked to the disc and put a blade on it. I'm kinda leaning towards a front assist then I can pull the disc easy and use it for other work. I currently have a 4650 I like alot but want more hp and front assist.

Rowcrop or articulated an option? There are Deeres out there with live pto and three point hitch, not just a drawbar. Articulated tractor seem to go cheap around here.

I would go with a JD 4960. They where a strong tractor and the 15 speed power shift worked smooth. Also the average mechanic can do most of the work on one of these. The JD 8300 that these guys talk about has a very jerky shifting power shift when cold. JD did a lot of work on that problem which they solved on the TEN series. Had a customer break the back window out with his head while moving his JD8400 in his machinery shed when it was zero out. They would hesitate for just a second and then BOOM they went. You also have a whole lot of electricial systems that do about everything. I once spent two days with a JD factory service tech working on a new JD8300. It would not go into any gear other than the "come home" one. We replaced every controller on the tractor. Finally we had to go through the wiring harness one wire at a time. Found a bad crimped wire terminal. Think how you would like to pay twenty hours of labor for a fifty cent terminal? How about a ten years old car with electric windows?. I am a loyal JD equipment person but I personally run 55 series and older tractors. The electronics and plastic in the newer ones will not stand the test of time very well.

2210 Versatile Buhler would work very well also. The 18 speed powershift is a nice plus over the 16 speed in the 8870 New Holland. A little more road speed etc.

I've ran 4960's and 8300 tractors before and agree with the comments here. I had a 7120 magnum but it was under powered for my 3 ft disc. I never ran anything newer in a magnum. How does the magnum front assist turn compared to the 8300 and 4960. Shorter or wider. And does the three point handle 12 equiptment without lift assist as the deeres do.

Im a deere guy myself but we have an 8870 newholland we bought new in 98. Its been a really good tractor. never had a bit of trouble with it. Just usuall maintenance things. If I was lookin at a deere in that price range a 4955 is a good tractor but I would preferr to spend a little more for an 8300. They are more comfortable in the cab and a bit quieter.

Spent quite a bit of time in a Ford/ New Holland 8770. Pulling a big square balere and heavy disc. Good tractor. The slap shift Powershift is very nice.
I know it's not 200 hp, but its big brother the 8970 has a good reputation. Couple of the Big farmers here have em.

Can be bought WAAAY cheaper than Green.

Way off topic- when I first saw your "handle" I was curious, so I did a little research. Very interesting. Kind of like NY state and NY city. I hope that someday I can live where my vote counts. I always vote with the minority here. Too many urban/big gov./ welfare types here for anything or anyone other than liberal to get in.

As far JD I would try hard to make to the 8300. Big jump up in operator comfort, visibility, etc compared to 4955/60. Better tractor all around in my opinion.

With that budget and goal, either way would work. I was going for a 4960, but when I found a Magnum 7240 much cheaper, I bought it. That was about 4 years ago. So far, so good.

JD 4955, 4960, or 8300. All should have powershift. Have had them all. All are great tractors in that size.

We"ve got a few of every color around, but I feel that if you can find a good, clean Case IH Magnum, you would be pretty happy.
