Default B7410 Fel

Hoping for an opinion on the B7410, doesn't seem to be the a lot of info on this model.
Are parts still avaliable ?

I'm looking at a 2005 Fel with 660 hrs for 6700.00, it seems in good shape.

Thanks.

It's a geared tractor so not very popular, everyone wanted the HST's.
Parts are still available and parts are shared over several models.

Not a Bad price for it either as long as it's in good condition.

Thanks for your note.

It would be going to a remote island in Northern Ontario, so service will fall on me, I'm pretty good but a clutch repair is out of my league.

If it hasn't been abused how much more life could I expect out of the clutch with 660 hrs so far ?

Thanks again.

Woodcutterc65, if you can do any service on your tractor you can do a clutch replacement. It's just like anything else, just a series of small steps. Not any special wrenches required, really...just time and a bit of coaching. It's a good learning experience, confidence builder and opportunity to know how your tractors works.

The hours one can expect from a clutch is determined by how it is used and stored. Leaving a tractor set with the clutch face against the flywheel is probably more damage then constantly slipping the clutch. But under usual conditions 600-700 hours is nothing for wear!

Just like D2 said:

A clutch job on these is really easy to do.

It's hard to say how long the clutch will last, it's a huge variable.

Thanks to both of you for your responses, I appreciate the "series of small steps" sentiment, it's the way I approach any given project.

Back to my ignorance. I have driven lots standard cars and an old Massey 135 at my folks farm, but have never heard of leaving a vehicle with the clutch face set against the flywheel ???

What does this mean, how does this happen ?

Thanks in advance again !

If you leave your tractor for any length of time unused, put a block of wood on the top of the clutch petal and some part of the tractor to keep it pushed down. This keeps the pressure plate off the flywheel and it can not rust/seize to destroy the clutch facing. Probably a more important measure if you leave the tractor in an enclosed barn that allows the tractor condensation to build up.

You learn something new ever day !
That is really interesting and useful to know.

Thanks very much, you've been really helpful.

I am going to give it a test this week and will post a pic if I make the purchase.

Good luck with your search. Just ask lots of questions. I call it the Columbo technique (from the TV show). Be sure to ask some questions you already know the answer to, just to get and idea if the person is honest and/or knows what he's talking about.

Find out how long he's owned it, why he's selling, what he likes about it, what he dislikes, how does it start when cold, does it need attention to anything, etc? It gives you some insight.

It's on a dealers lot, does that change the buying strategy at all ?
