Models from yr 2002 through to 2012 or so. Why are some of these priced on the lower side? Something wrong with them?
Looking mostly at 2375 and these 400 and 385 units. All very reasonably priced for the hours on them. Easily $50k min cheaper than equivalent HP in a deere machine.Most do t have a PowerShift. Versatile struggled making them. Good solid tractor
876-946-9480-2375. Had them all thousands of hours on each and never an issue. Do your regular maintenance and they will last for ever. Just got out of the 946 working some breaking down for a neighbor.
none of those model numbers are the same model sequence. A 2375 is the most basic, no buddy seat, only cable remotes, most don't have pto's and no powershift. A 400 is a higher end tractor, buddy seat, bigger cab some had powershifts and electric remotes and most importantly a heavier tractor. Not sure where you get a 385 from? are you sure its not a 375? One thing to remember is that a 400 and a 375 can come in both an old style and a new. 2011 and older is the old style. FYI we bought a new old style 375 in 2012 with 6 cable remotes, full weights, a pto, full gps and a standard tranny for 190 grand. So that is why they are cheaper, they were cheaper when they were new.Looking mostly at 2375 and these 400 and 385 units. All very reasonably priced for the hours on them.

IMHO stay away from the 2375 and the m11 cummins. Spend a little more for the model 435 and the bigger cummins engine. 375 horse power is different on a m11 compared to a n14 engine or if you decide to go newer 15 l ISX . I used to run a 2375 buhler and it is a comfortable and dependable tractor, however I was disappointed with the lugging power and hydraulics when pulling a 43 ft disc drill or 38 ft tandem disc. I still run a 946 as a second tractor. It has a n 14 engine with 13000 hrs. It will probable last forever! For those reasons I ended up going with a deere with a high flow hyd pump and power shift. Your right deere is 50 k more at least, but remember you get what you pay for these days and often cutting corners ends up costing more in the long run.Looking mostly at 2375 and these 400 and 385 units.

2375 good unit so far. It was 100k cheaper then a green/red/blue one of the same horsepower.
The tractor cab is the same as the 9280-9880. **** when your greasing it some of the part still have blue NH paint. One just sold at an auction sale close to me. 1100-1400 hours went for 130k. Somebody got a great deal
Don’t think you will have any issues. We pull 51 feet of double shoot drill with 430 cart. Some years I’m seeding 2 inches plus deep to find moistureI bought a 2375 new in 2011, i've used it for 8 seasons has 1350hrs, its been one of my best investments so far, very simple, reliable and easy on fuel so far since only pulling 39 feet of drill and 380 cart but I am about to find out if I need a different tractor since buying a 48ft 3310 and 6550 cart. I have weight kit on front and rear and 710 tires, hyd my be my biggest concern. might have one for sale, LOL.
Not a fluke. Happened to my cousins two or three times. Its a weak spot if using all or most of the hydraulic capacity.I pulled a cart with two fans with my 2375 and had no issues, though the hydraulic cooler did crack and fail and puked all the oil out. I don’t know if that was related to the work the hydraulic system was doing or just a fluke.
