  1. 3pt lift on 7130 vs 7140 weight ratings difference.

    Logical question might be...would I be able to replace the 1 1/2 cylinder with a 2 1/4 cylinder? Would the hydraulic pump be the same? Any issues?
  2. 3pt lift on 7130 vs 7140 weight ratings difference.

    Thanks guys. Ok, that would explain that. How about the 72XX ? Again a jump up in helper cylinders? And I guess for the 83xx they did it again?
  3. Just wondering is there actually any difference in components in the 3pt lift mechanism or not? Tractor data has progressively higher 3pt lift ability in each sequential 7150 more than 7140 more than 7130. The 7150 is listed at 12,720lbs vs the 7130 at 9,300lbs. Is there really a difference in mechanism? Then the 7230 came in at 10875 and the 8930 at 13000 to 16000 lbs. Found a 7130 with I like but ...my attachment is heavy (right at 9000lbs, wet and dirty it could be 9500).
  4. Older Magnum buyer advice

    Thanks...that is what I was thinking. So, do you have issues with the mx and EPA cert for the engine?
  5. Older Magnum buyer advice

    Bitty- I was wondering about importing from Europe. Did you use a broker? Or how did you buy them? Seems they are at a bit of a discount and due to age they don't need emissions EPA cert. All- Anything to look out for? I see some cautioning to look for later models due to some improvements made in 1990 or so? Anything else?
  6. Older Magnum buyer advice

    Hi, new member here. I'm looking to purchase/lease/rent an older Magnum. I've spent the last 20 years away from land management and would like to get back to that, actually I'm a forester by training. Not getting younger. One thing that interest me is putting abandoned farm land back into production or to correct the problems of badly degraded forest. To that end I've been researching tractors with over 200hp and a strong 3pt (equipment will weight 10500lbs) and quickly settled on an older Magnum (7140/50 and 7240/50). Price is a bit of an issue, I won't be getting rich doing this work but as long as I don't end up at the repair shop in the first 2 months I'll be ok. I'm looking to rent/lease/buy and am located in North West VA, not really big tractor country. So I'm looking for advice on what to look for when inspecting an older Magnum? Any and all insight is greatly appreciated!
