    Do I really need duals?

    On the hill you tend to slide if you have duals, on singles being narrower you tend to catch and tip. loose the water out of the inners and you’d have a better ride. what tyre pressures are you running on the inner and outer tyres?

    NH T7 tractor tyre size/wheel weights

    I get nervous with low tyre pressures. I’ve had a tyre come off the bead one guy doing hill work. I don’t need the drama so I don’t tend to go under 15 psi. Auto inflation would be cool…

    NH T7 tractor tyre size/wheel weights

    Down under I'm being told we can no longer spec a tractor with 650/65R42 tyres and have wheel weights on it. Something to do with the max weight the tyre can handle (think it's also to do with Michelin) I can get 710's on a 42 inch rim and still get wheel weights. All the other machines are...

    OIL FILTERS HOW EASY ARE YOURS TO CHANGE?

    we do the same on the T7's. Wheel off, axle stand on the axle & easy access to filters. Worth the 10 minutes to take the wheel off I recon.

    Autocommand wont move

    I guess one way around this is to leave the jump cables on between the two tractors for a bit to let the battery equalise for a bit too.

    Autocommand wont move

    the problem is most people need the tractor there & then, and probably don't have a spare battery kicking around. Fair call though, it would be good to charge the battery properly when possible.

    Autocommand wont move

    Best thing is to start it. Run the engine for a few minutes to put some charge on the battery. Then turn the tractor off and restart.
