Mike R 418408 385 NH TG 215 Super Steer either
NH TG 215 Super Steer
NH TG 215 Super Steer with NH TL 870 (Quicke Q85) loader. Notice that the tractor has the wrong subframes on. Frames are meant for a standard axle, not supersteer. On the supersteer frames, the loader would sit ahead almost another 1 1/2 feet. The frames were eventually changed to the right one.

Re: NH TG 215 Super Steer
Notice how there are 6 hoses for the hydraulics instead of 4. In North America you have the choice of going with a "Live 3rd function" or a "Selecto III" to run a grapple or other hydraulic operated implement. LIve 3rd means that when you press one button on the joystick it opens the grapple, and another b utton closes it. Don't think this is available from Quicke in Europe?

You are starting to see less and less row crop tires out here, but there will always be a need for them.

Re: NH TG 215 Super Steer
Well how bout that, just when I was about to ask you if you had any of the 870TL pictures, look at your most recent thread. I always liked the TG better than the MX for loader work, SuperSteer, shorter, better visibility, better lighting, the only problem is that the MX has the left-hand-reverser with Park, where as the TG only has the right-hand shuttle shift like on the 8070 tractors, unless the dealer was willing to either special-order it, or make the the modification themselves. We found the TG to be more expensive than the MX, however that was really only because the TG had SuperSteer and the left-hand-reverser included in the quote.

It was just a little too big for working around the yard, and we wanted the Variable Transmission among other things.

You seem to know a lot about Quicke, that's good to see.


Bobman, we don't all run row-crop tires, however most of the guys that run these bigger loader tractors are dairies, and many of those are immigrants who are rather fond of the bigger metrics. Most North Americans however don't give much thought to tires besides the fact of the bigger you go the more expensive they are, and they'd rather spend the money elsewhere. For loader tractors you're not very worried about compaction, and until you've tried the big boots, you don't give much thought to them giving a superior ride. We never gave a second thought to tires until we ran 650s on a 7720 loader tractor, and the traction and the ride really impressed us, woke us up if you will.

The TG215/870TL we specced out had the same tires you're suggesting.

Re: NH TG 215 Super Steer
Normally wider tyres also last longer. that compensates the higher cost a bit.
Question: How does it goes with a turned supersteer and a loader? Is the tractor as stabil as with a normal front axle when you lift the frontloader?:-)

Re: NH TG 215 Super Steer
I'm always on the ball Josh... The TG is definitely better for loader work over an MX in my opinion mainly due the the shorter hood. However, I've always bean leary about a loader on the Supersteer TG mainly due the the weight distribution when the loader hangs out so far. The supersteer does make it nice to stack bales though!
