Leyland Tractors
« on: January 05, 2004, 02:16:23 PM »
I saw this tractor for sale in the autoseller classifieds so i checked their website and got a picture. The price was 8,000 CAD. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me anything about them, I've never herd the name before.

In the past, they were good tractors (I used to use one to plow ag land 20 years ago).  Good meaning the one I used had good power and good hydraulics. I'm a Deere person, but I still liked using the Leyland (although I recall the brakes would fade after using them a lot when plowing on a sidehill). I don't think they were like the Deere running in an oil bath.

To make a buying decision, I would investigate availability of parts and service that you can tap into. Nothing (much) worse than getting a great price for something that can't be fixed because no one has parts or knowledge about mechanical servicing. (Just my opinion).

 I wasn't actually planning on buying the tractor it just looked like a good machine for the price. The parts is a big issue because i have no clue where you'd get them around here. Same with international and massey ferguson dozers, i don't know if you could get parts for them at the tractor dealer or not.

Leyland was a Brit conglomerate and had companies like Triumph, that built cars and motorcycles. I don't know what company was their ag division.
I may have been born on a turnip truck, but I didn't just fall off.

We had a dealer near hear years ago,so there were quite a few around.I worked with one for a couple years,nice to operate and very stingy on fuel.But brakes would not last and many (most?)ended up in the weeds with warped heads.

parts for most any dozor, will only be availble from an industrial equipment supplier.  halifax/moncton maybe.  we buy our case parts from LaHave equipment, in bridgewater ns, and most other stuff, we get out of the city.
