Been looking at JCB Fastrac 7230 lately. Used one, like 2009 or so. Anyone has some experience to share with me? What should I be careful with? Heard that transmissions are prone to failure. Thanks guys

They are using the Fendt transmission, but supposedly those are failing @5-6K hrs in JCB?!

im a big jcb guy and my advice is run a mile from the 7000 model go with 8000 models here bomb proof and it is correct it isn't the fendt trans in them until I believe 2012 when it was match up to the sisu motor
the 8250s are a great machine hard to beat if that stepping up in price range find a 3220 there a gd fastrac also

All the literature I've seen on them it should be the p tronic semi powershift. Never been interested in 1 so not looked much but I suppose it could be a fendt transmission but I'd suggest it would be very rare.

That's right, p-tronic is what they call it.

Thanks Mark. I did realize that 7000 series has ben produced only for a few years and is discontinued.
