I did wonder whether or not the discs could be worn quite a bit further past that point. I'm only about half worn at the moment before my larger discs are small disc size, but good to know and I'll keep that slightly larger than new little discs in mind.
I stick to the book so far on a 4.8m, 4800 for larger seeds and iirc 3500 for small seeds. I pick somewhere between the two for medium seeds. Not noticed much, if any, coming out of the air bleeds, unless an outlet is blocked.
My tine drill is a converted accord system and was driving the fan...
Possibly some of the issue is that so much of what we have to be positive about seems so mundane?
On the whole, plants and animals have a natural tendency to grow. Which is a good thing, though not necessarily that exciting.
Nice idea to start a positive thread in the Agricultural Matters section. I rarely look in this section of tff after coming to the conclusion that it was mostly just for rants.
I'm just going to take any attempts to be positive in Agriculture Matters as a good thing.
I know what you mean, but a lot of the soul here seems to go through a sticky stage as it gets wetter before it will smear.
This is drilling today, no smearing in the slots or trouble with the discs, but the soil is building up and steadily applying the breaks.
With a trailed GD, caddy at least, if there is any side slope then it will crab to some extent. The steeper the side slope the greater the carb. Having the transport tyres lifted off the ground full makes the effect worse. Drilling deep for beans so more of the weight was on the pivoting discs...
