Got it out of Euro Auction to replace a D85 (pos) a while back. It's an ex Japanese tractor that's been pushing wood chips in a saw mill its a cracking tractor to drive loads of power but likes the fuel. How's things with you boys where you working

I have been looking on and off for a good D7R to pull a 435G. Found a nice 8K but not spacer plate.

It would be a good match for a 435 id say ,also they have the advantage of ease of maintainence over the d8k. There not everyone's cup of tea but we always like to run big LGP tractors on our work, we're going to buy a D8T LGP when a good used one comes available ,the ones we looked at in the US were around 400'000 a bit more than I'd like to pay.

I had MST in on site early one friday morning end of last month. We took the tracks off and out of none of our R's including rolling up by the mst driver in an hour and a half. Back on the Tuesday, tractor ready to go on wednesday. Bloody good service by them. Had a wet turn incuding remove and refit shoes new bolts, under 1500 segments on top of course.
No signs of any leaks or problems yet. Well worth considering I would have thought. They are Berco chains.

We also fitted two new track chains on another of our 6R's MST supplied ITR for about 36 hundred the pair. Cannons out on this tractor too for new adjuster seals and the main seals and bushings. This tractor has C9 and servo hyds seems to be going ok.
Tim.
How are the ITR chains doing on the 6r's trax ? I have a full ITR undercarriage on a d3g still very early doors yet in its life, will just have to wait to see how long it lasts. Got 2 6ns of system on chains ones got over 7,500 hours on original chains will be needing replaced soon was looking into converting to normal chains.
