New Holland TM125 with Quicke 980 Loader
Had to feed the horses this evening with the TM125 so I
figured I'd take a few pictures. Not very interesting (and
not even fantastic equipment) but I figured I'd post these

Pic #3 This is our hayfield, and we seem to drop odd things
off here when we don't have a place/use for them(the '78
Ford F-150, and a few shacks). :-[

Just snagged this one of the sunset...

Last one of this.
New Holland TM125 and Ford 7710
Used the 7710-II and TM125 to haul out
the silage bales this past weekend. The
TV145 is on the bale processor.
Re: New Holland TM125 and Ford 7710
Next picture. Here you can see the TM125 as well, I
actually like this picture... :-\

I have a question, in other posts(such as Adrians TM155 with
loader) or my 7720 with loader post, everyone asks "why
would you need a loader on such a big tractor?" Well my
question is, why would you need a loader on a smaller
tractor? I mean, even the loader on our 7710(85pto HP) its
a pain being so small. It doesn't have very good lift
capacities, and it doesn't have very good reach(both height
and out in front).

Next one.
Re: New Holland TM125 and Ford 7710
Last photo of this. We could have put more bales on the top
of the trailer but this was the second load so we didn't
need anymore. :-)
Re: New Holland TM125 with Quicke 980 Loader
By the way, forgot to mention, this is the fancy hitch I was
telling you about. This(8 bales on the trailer; 6 below and
2 on top, and 1 on the loader), is how we used to do all our
hay (about 1,000 bales of hay alone)!! :-[ You'd think now
that we can haul 32 bales at a time, at highway speeds and
multiple tractors, we'd have so much time on our hands we'd
have time to build things like the bale spears... :-D
Re: New Holland TM125 with Quicke 980 Loader
nice pics!

About you loader question we have so many different loaders
now. JD 8120 with Q990, JD 7210 with Q980, JD 544H, NH LS170
and now a NH LS140(came today).

Different jobs, require different sizes of equipment. For
packing, nothing compares to the 8120, but when handling
large bales in a smaller shed I'd rather have the LS170.
Today i was cleaning out the horse stalls and the only
machine i could use for it was the LS140 since it is less
than 6 ft wide. For daily feeding nothing compares to the
strength and durability of the 544H. The 7210 is very handy
for loading bales and unloading them in a reasonable sized
sheds and fits in smaller places then the 8120.

I am certain the 8120 can destroy the 990 loader if you push
against something, but I also know of a 746 loader that
destroyed a 7720 with heavy duty front axle. I think 100hp
tractors make the best loader tractors. You just need to put
a good size loader on it such as an 980 or 741.
Re: New Holland TM125 with Quicke 980 Loader
Hey, great pics. Is that a New Holland or Versatile swather?
Where abouts is your farm located? Take er easy.

Versatile 400 Hydro
Sorry about this taking so long...

Josh, the swather is a Versatile 400 Hydrostatic. Not sure
if you're interested or not but I grabbed some pictures of
it for you.
Re: Versatile 400 Hydro
Its an old beater but this is just their(the neighbors) old
one. They have a new one, not sure if its a Massey or a
Hesston, with a 30-34ft header. :-) They have to drive it
up on blocks in order to get over the bridges when switching
fields... :-D This one is just used for cutting the ditches
and around the grain bins/driveways in their fields. They
decided to bring it over and try to cut this last field(they
have a little over 30 quarters; 5,4000+ acres) because the
stalks(oats) were so tough that the 30-34ft header couldn't
chew through it(kept switching over and using the relief
valve). :-[
Re: Versatile 400 Hydro
Another, here you can see the model, etc...
Re: Versatile 400 Hydro
Last one, this just shows that it has a Ford engine in it.
The machine very simple to operate, this one does have the
steering wheel, the direction and speed is controlled by a
right-hand leaver... the header is controlled by three foot
pedals. The controls are the exact same as bidirectional...
Ford 7710 & Highline BalePro 7000
Well we finally got the 7710 hooked up... I believe it is
100% functional. :-) Takes up a lot less room in the
shop now from the TV145.

The TM125 is still sitting with a bunch of leaks and a
transmission that needs to be calibrated again... Talked
to the dealer multiple times in the past couple months but
they don't want to fix it... probably for the best.. they
generally screw up more things then they fix...

Its not like we're mean to the dealer... one of our old
neighbors threatened the trucker simply because the dealer
sent him out with the wrong thing... We've come to expect
it so it doesn't phase us when it happens... ;-)

Gerard, a 100hp tractor is good for loader work because it's manuverable but they don't like to handle two bales at a
time(aside from the TV's). You may not have a problem with
that but you don't handle many bales, we handle over 1,000
bales of hay alone so...
