OLD. I'm glad you've returned after a time away from here. Your pics are always worth looking at. Such cracking scenery in the background. :thumleft:

One of the best small tractors I've ever driven.
Basically a Fiat.

My mate has a jxu115 on their shoot trailer. It's so easy to drive, and as you say all mechanical. Much nippier than the massey 7495 we used to use. Harry doesn't like it (4 yo) as it doesn't have a proper passerger seat. He prefers the jcb 4220 they have on the beaters trailer

No, I don't think so.
The smaller TSA were'nt Fiat.
The bigger red ones might have been a TSA.

NO

Almost pure {older} Fiats built at Jessi in Italy.

The latest red & blue versions have new FTP engines to meet current emissions. & different cabs.
Some basic spec models are older Fiat designs built in Turkey

The power of those little things was just astounding.
I got given one for a day pulling a 10 ton trailer as all the other tractors were out.
I weren't happy...
Not until I drove it, then I was amazed.

If I ever wanted a small tractor, I wouldn't think twice.

Heard several very similar reports locally when they were launched. Probably helps that the Electroshift box in the range above is terribly power sapping, hence the equivalent power MXU/TSA have a reputation as gutless slugs. One neighbour swapped down a range when changing his loader tractor as a result.
