It may be the camera angle, but the front tyres don't look very big for 300+hp. Vario gearbox?
Here we go again, hold tight.

I agree. You wanna put some 1050/50x32's on that. And a stainless zorst. And tracks. And change the name to challenger.
Better still, paint it green with red wheels and call it a fendt. That wouldn't have skinny wheels, that would have gretol big ffukers.

Don't think its physically as big as a Xerion, though 300hp odds so will be a fair tractor.

Just think if i buy an artic dolly and fit a bunker i can undercut all the hauliers and not pay road tax into the bargain!

An i could do hedges for 11 quid an hour.
