I am thinking about getting an M7060 but don't know if I should get the transmission with 8 speeds or 12 speeds (which also has a few extra features, but is 2K more). Any advice?

Thanks

Ephemeral,

Having the few extra gears available is really only necessary during demanding situations, such as when plowing, tilling, or blowing snow.

There are a few other instances when having an extra gear to pick from would be nice -- such as when spraying pesticides, applying fertilizers, or working on hilly ground.

Hope this helps.

Joel ....

I have a 7060, with the 12 gear, and I had them install the creeper gear as well, I will be using the creeper gear for my rototilling work. Ilove the little tractor, love the features, the "E" PTO, as well as the overdrive in 6th high range. Still getting onto the whole Tier 4 re-gen thing, One word of advice the mechanic gave me is to keep idling to an absolute minimum, as that tends to load up the re-gen, and will hasten the re-gen modes. I have around 300 hour on mine now and it has only gone into re-gen perhaps 4 times. As well, the tractor is great on fuel!

Cheers

Roger ....
