    what type of a machine were the TMs, good engine, but how about the gearbox and backaxle, were they a bit soft when subjected to continusous heavy work

    would it be an accurate statement a lot of the problems were due to not enough cooling in the overall design and the TM 175 195 were more prone to trouble than the 135 150?

    By the time the TM155 appeared they were pretty good, the engines are very reliable in themselves, the water pump has a weak/poor design shaft seal IMO, transmission problems we had were the common one of worn range synchros, and it also needed a layshaft in the gearbox at 1200 alone because the bearing runs direct in the end of the shaft. Chattered bearing "cup" = new shaft!. Can be prone to the old groan from the hyd pump on start-up as an air bubble or two go through. Not a bad functional all rounder.

    The transmission/hyd heating problems came with the long wheelbase 175/190's though they say that a late fully modded one is cheap HP and pretty reliable

    Local Case dealer still has my old 175 in, it's coming up for a year now since we traded it for the Puma, It was a tidy 1 as well so they must be asking too much

    We picked up a very tidy Tm155 Power Command a while ago on 650's but we find her useless on the fields. Digs her self a hole and traction is non existent. We find her a road tractor than a field tractor.

    We take it, the tractor is just too heavy on her backend compared to our smaller TM's.
