Best value new tractor

    Hi, i currently have a 2008 claas arion 7500hours and a 2006 deutz tractor 14000 hours plus an old jcb 410 12500 hours. Repairs in 2023 cost 9,800e and 6700e in 2022, there is a few months repayments left on the class, 8,400 made in repayments in 2023.

    All machines need tyres in the next 6 months. Deutz and claas on slicks and jcbs tyres have serious dry rot. Do 1000 hours a year over all. A bi of road work.

    Im wondering would i be mad to consider a new 120-130hp loader tractor and sell my old ones. Keep the new under warranty. And change out of warranty.

    I do my own slurry,fert, mowing, zero grazing, haulage etc.

    Value would be a primary concern, but it has to have a trade in value after warranty. Full cost of ownership would be key.

    I would have a buyer for my own machines and would hope to have 50k cash plus finance for a new one. Or fully finance it.

    Any thoughts
