Wondering if anyone had any information on Hesston tractors good or bad. Looking at a hesston 640dt has loader. Will be using it for moving hay and taking hay out to cows.

Not 100% sure but am thinking its the Fiat tractor that was almost like the Oliver 1365 if so they are very good tractors.

They were a failed attempt by fiat to try and a get share of the
us tractor market by using a well respected name on a foreign
built tractor it didn’t work . They are awkward to run but no
worse than any other foreign built piece of crap they sell now
days They look nice . I don’t know who you call for parts
hesston is now agco which agco is slowly making the Hesston
name disappear and fiat owns case ih now so I guess get on
the horn and see who still wants to claim it .

Go to this link and scroll all the way to the bottom. They're rated Excellent. If they're half the tractor that the Oliver 1365 is,
I would have to agree.

I remember a Case dealer here that sold Hesston had some sitting out front for a while, but I never knew anybody personally who
bought one, so I can't say from experience. Remember, they were Fiat and Fiat owns New Holland now. They claim that some of the
transmission and rear ends in the new New Hollands are carry overs from the earlier Fiats.

The motors are about the same too,the mechanic that overhauled my 1365 4WD said that some of the NH tractors built today still use the same block.

Pretty darned close to my Oliver 1365. Fenders have a newer square look to them. I'd grab it up in a heartbeat. They're tough as a
two dollar steak.
