We had an 8150. The Valmet engine, which is now called SISU, was a very strong, nice engine. It was very easy on fuel. The Dynashift was also a good transmission. The only problem we had with it was in very cold weather while the tractor was still cold, the transmission couldn't be shifted through the ABCD ranges. The lights on the dash would flash and it was locked in whatever range you left it in last time you drove it. It would work again when the tractor warmed up. Don't know if that was a safety thing to keep from damaging the transmission, but it was a little annoying. We got rid of the tractor because we couldn't keep up with the oil leaks on it. We would take it in and have them fixed and it would start again. The outlets on the back always dripped no matter how many o-rings we replaced. The PTO shaft had multiple seals put in it. The engine was dripping too, and we were told it was going to take $$$ to get them all fixed again, so we traded it in on a DT200A AGCO with a SISU. Didn't want to get away from that good engine.
