In my opion i was dissapointed with the transimission in the t8 it is very rough shifting escpecially between (12-13) I think CNH could have sorted the porgramming with this gearbox. Or is this a tatic from CNH to justify the price differance over the Magnum. I also think T8 is finished porly.
On the ad-blue side of things , Why would you buy a SCR tractor when Deere are offering a single fluid solution (disel) or in AUS JDL. have provided customers with a Tier2 option. At the end of the day you have to remember "you get what you pay for" Good luck
Tango I thought I was the only one that had the Friday built T8.275 tractor the Adblue system has been the thing that has annoyed me the most. But there have been a multitude of other problems such as oil leaks, fans belts failing regularly, hydraulic remotes not working, airconditoner problems, hydraulic hoses to the front suspension rubbing through, wiring under the cabin rubbing through in three different places. There have been so many things that I cannot recall most of them. But like I said before great dealer support, great tractor to drive and operate, but it cannot be relied on. Are other brands any better?I have had my T8 275 1200hrs and is nearly 18month old. Not one issue with adblue had a great run with it, not a issue in amount used. Main use of tractor is spraying and 3pl spreader. Cab comfort is great and linkage and front suspension awesome. I don't have cab suspension. Question would you by again ??? No, and for someone that is all blue and yellow I think a colour change could be in order. I got a Friday built tractor. Yes the long warrantee is great because your going to need it. Dealer doing their best, you can't prevent this stuff. Can't believe what's not covered. No oil loss, no coolant loss. I know I sound nit picky but 15hrs after I got it idler went through fan, faulty from new.i get to pay for labour, coolant and belt. Yippee. Currently I'm over 1000l of hydralic closer to 1200l on the ground. Every two days it's back into the dealer for diff leaks , brake leakes, hydralic seals, remote couplers that blow out. Also if it's to much to work to make a fuel gauge work. I know a stick works but so dose my fuel gauge work in a 30year old little 574 inter. Sorry for the rant. That's just my experience, heaps more happend that these few.
