I guess you actually have to run a Fendt to know the controls are much more user friendly than most anything out there...
At the price point of any tractor, 10k hours is what should be expected before major repairs. European tractors often get 1000h+/year and tend to stick around until 10k or more hours. The previous 800 series Fendts were unbeatable in reliability.
I have looked at that row of used tractors at Pentagon. Have wondered about buying a 2000 926 Fendt, 260 HP, 13,000 hrs, good tires, clean straight tractor. Asking $79,500. Don't put many hours on any more but like the features. I have a good 2135 Ezee On loader I think could fit on. I just want a yard tractor for light loader work, pull 6 yard scraper, run HD 9' rototiller, move snow, PTO work, etc. What is owning one of these with all the electronics and high tech hydraulics going to be in the next 10-30 years? I typically have equipment that is up to 30 - 50 years old and works like day 1.
