Re: NEW JCB 3230
I think these have new JCB engines? not really sure. Its
certainly better in the field than the 3185 it replaced.

Re: NEW JCB 3230
Hello there, I work for a nottinghamshire based farm.
Wondered how long you have had your horsch chaser bin for
and if you like it or not? We have a Horsch uw 160 too, its
on the big 1050/50 michelin flotation tyres thow. We also
had the new 3230 on demonstration and though it was awsome
but still prefer our mercedes benz unimog.

Hello I am from England.
Owner of a new Fastrac 3230. :-D

These models use 6.8 litre, tier3 common rail Cummins engine. :-)

The 3230 model is rated at 230 hp.

This machine was ordered with Nokian 2 tyres, as its main duties will be transportation.

Re: NEW JCB 3230
Tractor was only delivered a few weeks ago. Not done any hard work yet to test it. I will let my views be known as soon as possible.

Re: NEW JCB 3230
i don't like this tyres, but when you use it only for transportation i think it's the best choice

Re: NEW JCB 3230
The Nokian Tri2 tyres were fitted to give high performance on the highway. They (JCB) claim 6000 hours plus from these tyres when used on the highway. The Fastrac 155-65 in the background will perform less highway tasks in future, following the 3230 arrival.

Re: NEW JCB 3230
Welcome to Farm Photo & nice pics :-)

They havent really caught on here in Australia as farm tractors. Here they are used as fertilizer spreaders (longer in the chassis with a 5 tonne spreader fitted), crop sprayers or as highway maintainence tractors (verge mowers, etc).

Re: NEW JCB 3230
Over in England the Fastrac is best used for highway, spraying and fertiliser spreading. The 11 year old 155-65 shown here with dump trailer, completes all the farm's fertiliser spreading.

Re: NEW JCB 3230
This is an image I found to show you the sort of spreaders we have on the Fastracs here in Australia.

This one is a 3185.

Re: NEW JCB 3230
Very few long wheel-base Fastrac's over here. The ones I have seen pictures of are special builds for the army.

Re: NEW JCB 3230
They are pretty much all like that here (the ones I have seen anyway), except the few that end up in actual farming applications.
