Your next tractor

So, you're probably here because you currently have a Renault tractor in your fleet. Now, if you're considering a replacement, which brand would you go for? Personally, I'm likely to stick with Renault/Claas (but not too new). I find my Ares very simple to operate (TCE is excellent), have been horrified by how unintuitive some of the newer tractors can be when I've driven them. HMS systems and the like are great but if you can't do the simple things like operating the linkage in a simple manner, then there's something wrong. Anyway, all the manufacturers have their own interpretations of how to do things and I think that now, more than ever, once you get used to a brand, it's difficult to change. Obviously poll answers are partly dependent on whether you're likely to buy new or used.
