The 6275 are good tractors but when you start to have brake problems they can be very frustrating. They use a equalizing system that will make you pull your hair out trying to fix. If you get them bled out they may last a couple of hours or maybe a couple of years. This usually will happen up in the 3000 to 4000 hr. range. Other wise they are good tractors. The 7085 does not use the same brake system and are usually trouble free. Just my 2 cents worth.

We have two, both ROPS with FWA. Bought new in 1988 and 1990. Now have about 5000 hours on each. Very good chore tractor. Most of our uses are mowing hay with 14' 116 New Holland, hauling 16' silage wagons. hauling manure, loader work with Westendorf TA26, planting no-till with 6-30 planter. Very fuel efficient, good starting in cold weather, strong drawbar, fairly quiet from the operators seat, strong brakes for stopping big loads.
We did have trouble with brakes equalizing like a previous poster mentioned. Took master cylinder apart and cleaned out dirt, put back together and has worked fine ever since. Also had trouble with one of the tractors blowing the head gaskets (metal washer). Finally adjusted the timing a little and hope that helps. Would be nice to have a little more hydraulic flow and a float position on the valves. Also miss the extendible lower links on 3pt. For the most part we are quite happy with them for how we use them.
