We are NOW (our Home page!) PleasantCreekHayEquipment.com
The equipment purchasing side of PleasantCreekHay.com
We also have a new major interest in Dairy
We are currently doing 2/2016 updates
Last Week...........Nor this!
Featured on E-BAY
Pick 3 or be patient!
At any given time we have approximately 150 tractors, 150 Mowers, 50 Ploughs and 50 Balers that are listed as for sale globally. Few of the dealers are ever contacted as to there tractor and/or being available and willingness to ship their equipment to the nearest major port for delivery to Boston, New York, Baltimore or Suffolk, VA. We recommend you choose 3 tractors from which to contact. Contacting all,, we are going to take a first response approach unless a dealership suddenly balks at shipping the tractor to the nearest port!
Our most recent approach is to contact all of the Loader Tractor and 80 K owners in an attempt to get solid FOB prices to the nearest European Port.
On the loader side, we are making serious attempts at building a relationship with Stoll USA, so that you are not dependent on EU inventories.
Our 60-60-60 (And others) 2013 Lease
(Try it before you buy it!)
It should be mentioned that we stand behind the EEC Dealership Field Ready Warrantee against manufacturers defects REGARDLESS OF AGE and that all of our tractors are "field ready" AND THAT THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR
60-60-60; 60 days, 60 hours, $.60/hour/$1000. It's our in house rental rate! Our 60-60-60 is very close to the real long term cost of operating the unit. Sixty days, could be 50 if we wanted to, it gives you sufficient time to cut first and second cutting hay or perhaps do some tillage before first cutting. WE ARE BETTING ON YOUR PURCHASE SO WE ARE BEING LEANIENT ON THE LENGTH OF TIME YOU HAVE THE TRACTOR!
And others: Being custom operators, PleasantCreekHay.com has to get slightly more for what will be back up tractors if the tractor is returned. All of our listed tractors have front PTO and Air Brake systems. PLeasantCreekHay.com is only interested in a minimum 50K/Hr! The 40K's may have CVT Transmissions! Great Farm Tractors! For custom operations? Slooooow! If you are interested in the outright purchase of a front PTO tractor with less power or >65K, PleasantCreekHayEquipment.com will be happy to do a search of available tractors from our European suppliers.
Too much power! Maybe not for your operation, but as custom operators, we would rather put a second tractor into the field rather than load up the horses with a tractor that may or not be able to utilize the additional power in our mowing operations. We have to get more pennies/thousand $'s to cover the over investment if we have the tractor turned in without a purchase!
At times, availability is limited in some tractor lines and in "mower collectors", but when available we are limiting our leasing to units able to utilize collectors and are requiring the leasing of mowers with collectors when we can find them in the tractors location or here in the US!. If the lease is returned, we want the unit up and running to mow Pleasant Creek Hay's hay the next day!
We don't want you leasing the tractor on a whim! If the tractor is mechanically correct, we expect a purchase and feel we have a lease price adequate to cover PleasantCreekHayEquipment.com's costs if returned!
We're leasing our "fleet tractors", the JCB 3185's, 3190's and those of the 3200 series, 60-60-60.
Those with loaders, 60-80-60
We're leasing the "Big brother", the JCB 8250 of cab forward design, 60-65-70.
Those without cab forward design, newer 8250's, 7230's, 7270's 60-70-80
Claas Xerion 3300 VC's and 3800 VC's WITH FRONT PTO (50K), 60-75-90.
We're requiring the leasing (and purchase with the tractor) of a triple mower including collectors if they are available. A super mower 11.6 meters wide with its collectors is required for tractors of 255 HP or more.
Over time we hope our partners have a fleet of front PTO tractors, parked and ready to roll! (We'd like for example, our partners to have a mixer wagon of adequate size to utilize the power of one of our mower tractors and loader of adequate size to mow hay by day and feed cows by night and or in the mid AM!
The timely feeding of our partner's cows and mowing of our partner's fields is always our first priority!
ALL HANDS AND TRACTORS READY TO ROLL WHEN HAY IS READY!
Dollar for dollar we think the best money is in the mowing, but think there is money in joint ownership of forage harvesters OR SHOULD WE SAY FORAGE HARVESTING SYSTEMS that require FAST and
TRUE OR FALSE?
although a 65 K machine may be adequate to get from field to storage, from farm to farm and from the last bus stop to the farm the 80 K machine has the advantage: therefore for our partners we are recommending the purchase of 80 K machines as a first choice of purchases.
Perhaps False! Perhaps the best purchase is that of a 65K tractor with the goal in mind to eventually change worn 30R's for NEW 34R's AND RIM'S, changing the tractor width from 100" to 110"s and the inner width between tread from 60"s to 70"s, (even though it requires offsetting the hitch 15"s) a) About 52 MPH b)More tread in case you are in mud. c)You can straddle 3 30"row (even though it requires offsetting the hitch 15"s)
Our 8250's all 70K's! We don't have adequate inventory for a good "AVERAGE" tractor and suggest you use our 3200/65's as comparables.
Our Stock JCB 3200/65's!
If there is such a thing!
At 42 MPH, What is stock? Deere? NH-Case IH?
We think the 3200's deserve a category unto themselve. Four wheel Suspension, Self Leveling, Self Shifting, Suprior in so many ways to every other tractor on the market, including that of the JCB 185, 3185 and 3190 forerunners!
JCB 3230-65 Fastrac's Yes!
But we have even faster 80K machines.
JCB 3200's with loaders too
But not within the update period!
Use our Currency Converter to determine what todays price is in $ US
We are grouping our JCB 3190, 3185 and 185 Series tractors together. It is our feeling the multiple series have enough in common that the hour meter vs series places more differences in value then the decal on the side of the tractor!
JCB 185-3185-3190/65K's OUR MEDIAN 42 MPH!
With a Loader!
If a loader is a requirement, we generally recommend the purchase of a loader here in the US
OUR Not so average 185-3185-3190's 80K's 50 MPH!
Our Favorite, Cab Forward Design! 44 MPH!
There are 8250's and 8250's, we prefer those made earlier of Cab forward design and LIKE the newer FULL suspension of the 7000 series.
2) 60K Fendt tractors 38 MPH!
Contact US: We no longer maintain a web site inventory, but are willing to do a search for presentation!
Big Power! We've added some bigger Fendt 60 K machines to balance out big power requirements. Please refer to our Avco, Masey Ferguson - Fendt page for additional < 60 K machines.
Our Generic average 38 MPH!
3) 50K Loader Tractors 31 MPH!
Loader tractors, any color at 50K, 31 MPH or more!
We no longer maintain this category as well and advise buyers to purchase a loader to match a 180 HP Plus JCB Fastrac!
We envision using the loader, even within our partnerships to cut hay, then be available to pack the pile! Dropping the front mower and reattaching a loader (leaving the rear mower attached as balast) you can be pushing and packing the pile within minutes with a 180+ HP tractor.
Kind of embarrassing! Pleasant Creek Hay Equipment is working with a manufacturer to produce a European style buck rake to meet the US market. Our US loader tractors are not the most efficient way to move and (well really move) material! (You do see material moved with front loaders in Europe too!!!!!!!!!!!! But it still doesn't make them the most efficient way to move material up and on the pile!)
For Self-propelled Forage harvester operations, we foresee bringing 2 buck rakes! One for our immediate use with the clients tractor, the second for our continued use as one of the three tractors becomes no longer needed hauling forage be pushing and packing the pile. USING BOTH OF OUR 16' BUCKRAKES AS WE FINISH!
4) 50K Class Xerion Tractors 31 MPH!
For those of you that feel you need additional power, long a force in Forage Harvesters, let PleasantCreekHayEquipment.com introduce you to the Claas Tractor!
FOR THE XERION LET US SAY FASTER. FASTER TO THE FIELD AND FROM FIELD TO FIELD THEN ...
WELL YOU DO THE RESEARCH...... A TIRE WITH THE PROPER PRESSURE WILL COME CLOSE TO MATCHING THE FOOT PRINT (NON COMPACTION) OF A TRACKED TRACTOR, MATCHING THE LACK OF SOIL COMPACTION OF ITS TRACKED BROTHERS!
FACE IT! HERE IN THE NORTH EAST WE NEED A TRACTOR THAT CAN GET FROM FIELD TO FIELD (SMALLER, MORE SPREAD OUT FIELDS) THAN OUR MID-WEST COMPETITORS!
WE HAVE CORN, BUT NOT AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE! And think big radials with faster road speeds are competitive tp track tractors!
4a) 50K Class Xerion Tractors
w/Front PTO 31 MPH!
Not that common a unit, there may only be 0-2 with front PTO available Worldwide at any time.
IN SHORT SUPPLY, YOU MAY FIND YOU HAVE TO RELY ON REVERSE STATION MACHINES
4b) 50K Class Xerion Tractors VC's (Reverse Station) 31 MPH!
Contact us: We no longer maintain a current inventory!
4) Our Average 3800 VC!
