We have had a JD 9400 that has been used and abused for 15 years now. It’s over 8500 hours now and pulls a 9 shank dominator in the fall and 48’ field cultivator in the spring. The trans and engine haven’t had any large issues. It has the 12 speed Powershift, but I wouldn’t suggest that. A quad would a little better with more speed options. So take a look at the 9000 series Deere. Might sound about what you are looking for.

We’ve got a Deere 9410R for sale

We use jd, all power shifts, currently with tires. I’d like to have tracks but they seem expensive. We just traded our 9410r for a 9470r. Not excited about def.

Versatie 2375. Very simple machine if you prefer to do your own work.

1000 series challenger or Fendt

We have a Buhler Versatile 2290 turned up to 350. Very simple machine. No bells and whistles but easier to work on. Some parts can be hard to find if you don’t have a good New Holland dealership close by.

If you have a certain hp you are looking for, I do custom ECU tuning for more HP.

In the past I have had customers looking for a certain HP and I have been able to point them in a direction to save some money between tractor models. (Buy lower hp tractor and add a safe HP tune to get it to acceptable hp)

Stay away from the deer 30 series. They are notorious for shelling the water pumps and then blowing the motor up. Other than that I can't any are any better or worse than the rest.

I would second this. No one could give me another one after having a 9430. we like Deere’s but I will never own another 4x4 one. Switched to the new style versatile and have been very happy so far.

Have had 4 caseih Stx steiger series with very good luck. Biggest problem is def on the newer models

I’ve got a Case STX330 I’d part with. It’d be a newer/updated version of what you currently have. Powershift, 3pt, & PTO. We like the tractor, it’s just more of a reducing debt issue.

Regardless I think anything in that hp range should handle what you’re after. Why not look at a MFWD like an JD 8530 or other color equivalent?

We have a challenger mt845 been a great tractor with lots of power and traction also good hydraulics.
