How many hours is too many on these tractors? Would you buy a 10k houred tractor with a recent overhaul? I'm a smaller farmer and would really like the option of the FWA that this particular tractor would bring -- priced right - just not sure on the longevity of the tractor cause there arent any around locally. I know the 6x3 transmission is pretty solid. Tractor has recent hydraulic pump as well. Seems like guys will run magnums well over 10k and not think much of it - in theory a primarily gear drive unit should be more durable. Also looking at the Deutz Allis variation - I have a deutz in a combine and really like it.
Also if I'd go this route is there a way to set flow on the remotes -- my planter does use a blower, (great plains 1625) it doesnt take much to run, but not familure with the tractor.
