JOSHJA 377303 382 Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000 either
Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000
I did some feeding the past couple weeks so I decided to take a few feeding and bedding pictures.

The first few are from last Saturday.

This tractor now has ~1,600 hours on it, about 1,000 of which were spent on the Highline 7000.

Next week the new tractor will be taking over this job.
Looking forward to that as it will have more power, fingertip controls, and you won't have to twist your neck around so far to watch the processor. Right now it's so far back there you can almost watch it in the mirror. ;-)

The TM125 and TV145 side by side, normally the TV145 bucket has teeth as well, but they were removed for digging this fall, and left off for scraping until the new tractor arrives.

Thanks Mehmet Dogrul, not the most interesting stuff I know, but it's all I've got without posting others' photos.

TM125 grabbing straw bales for me when I came back from feeding.

Blowing straw into one of the five cattle shelters. It is capable of blowing the straw much farther, so it's hard not to pile it against the back wall.

Grapple broke on the TV145 a couple weeks back, so I dropped it off in the shop for welding and we used the TM125 to get the bales ready (in the background).

I thought it looked rather ridiculous without the bucket, but it provided excellent visibility.

No jdeere, the TV145 will be staying, the TM125 is on its way out the door, possibly to be replaced down the road with another loader tractor of similar size. We would like another TM155 with Q75 loader, but unfortunately production stops on them. Possibly a 7030SF next year when the new North American design comes out, or maybe a Fendt 700 or 800? I believe the Fendt dealer should be bringing a new 800 series with loader out on demo.

Good pics Josh, interesting to see how you guys do it over there ;-)

I still find that tractor unusual to look at, as we dont seem them in this part of the world.

Tas, you've got a few over there, just don't see them very often. ;-)

Josh, when you say 7030SF do you mean JD tractors?
Here in Costa Rica NH tractors are known as "fuel spenders"
Take care.

Re: Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000
Yes Victor, I mean a JD 7030SF. We'll see how well they do on the Waterloo version... but not until August.

Another tractor isn't necessary, however I would like to be with another loader tractor at about 115 PTO Hp.

The TM125 will be leaving, and I would like to replace it, the 7710, and Cat crawler loader, with a single machine. Not this year, but perhaps next year. We will see what all the brands have to offer then.

I would like to have..:
2004 TV145 @ 105 PTO Hp
2007 7630 @ 140 PTO Hp
2008 XXXX @ 115 PTO Hp

Some may call me an idiot about not going to a Fendt, but fuel consumption isn't that big of a selling point for us that we'll compromise in other areas. The Fendt salesman was telling me he'd save me 25% of fuel resulting in thousands of dollars in savings every year. Which is interesting since 25% of the annual fuel consumption for each one of our tractors is < $1,000. :-\

For some yes, fuel is a big cost.
[Edit: Forget my previous statement on amount of hours we put on --- I think I had my head up my ass when I originally said it.] :-[

Re: Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000
I won't call you an idiot. I used a 926 for two days last fall and I don't care if they save me a litle fuel. I hate the cab. After two days I was in pain(I am a large guy, 6' 2'' 240 lbs and the cab is to small, the dash hits my knees). I spend at least 1000 hours a year on a tractor, so in March the will be a new JD 8530 on the yard:-)(big cab and know wat every switch does after a few minutes).

Re: Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000
aslomp, I'll agree on the cab, however I haven't run a Fendt, only sat in a couple with loaders. I cannot stress how much I dislike those cabs, and I'm only 5'8. There are some things I like about them, and a good number that I don't, and I will not bash one until I try one, but I don't plan on trying one until they change the cab.

Even my 5'2" 110 lb mom didn't like the Fendt cab, nor the JD7520/IVT cab either. Didn't take long before everyone was convinced on the 7030LF/8030 cab. ;-)

What did you think of the Vario vs the IVT? I know a lot of the guys on the forums -- old IVT owners and fans -- say the Vario puts the IVT to shame. Having only tried IVT myself, I can't really say, but I have no complaints on it, at least not on the bigger tractors. My neighbor has also tried a 926 and although he said it was nice -- he's a short little shit -- he still likes the IVT better, and has since bought a 7820/746 and 7920/746 with TLS. Deerline has been really good to him.
Is the 8530 replacing or complementing?



mark, the cattle shelters are just that -- cattle shelters. From calves right up to adult cows averaging 1,500lbs. During the summer when most animals are put out on pasture or when we are running at only partial capacity, we will also park equipment in some of them. Things like the baler, silage bagger, mixer, mower, processor, Cat, etc. The 7710 and TM125 will also fit, but not the TV145, and certainly not the 7630, too tall. I believe that is our smallest cattle shelter.

We are looking at building another shed this summer strictly for equipment. It will be large enough to hold all of the above listed items, as well as the semi, 2 pickups, and a few more misc things. It will be big enough for us to be able to access each thing independently (without having to move something to get another thing out).

Re: Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000
I guess it comes down to people's individual preferences. I know guys here who swear by Fendt's, they reckon they are the best tractor they have owned (700 & 800 series). Others only drive Massey's or John Deere's.

I guess it comes down to what people like & what sort of success they have had with certain brands & models.

I am sure all makes have their good & bad points, otherwise everybody would only buy one brand :-P

Re: Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000
There is nothing wrong with the Fendt Vario once you find out how it works. The IVT is a lot easier to operate. I never drove a 8030 with IVT before but if it works just as good as a 7920 I will be happy. The 8530 will be on the manure tank. The 8330 that is on there now will be used on the airseeder and the rest of the field work, the 7920 is a little to small.

Re: Feeding with New Holland TV145 & Highline 8000
aslomp, the 7630 arrived, certainly takes some getting used to, mainly the IVT. It's a big bloody loader tractor.... at least for us it is. The tread spacing is set for optimum turning ability, and I am quite impressed with the turning radius of it. The 7720 I demoed had the tread spacing reduced so it could fit 2 pairs of cast weights on the outside as well, so I wasn't happy with the turning ability of it.

I fed again on Sunday (how odd is that, I rarely fed for the past few years, now I've fed 8-9 times since January...) So I took some more pictures, more explanatory of the system.

This is picking up some of the silage bales I brought out for this feeding.
