    Case 4230 4WD

    The 30k 5130s definitely didn't have 4 wheel braking, many were converted to 40k with only the 40k gear set used & not the full kit. I will hold my hands up though & say I could be wrong on 4200 series as we sold very few of them 👐

    Case 4230 4WD

    Basically no, not on a 4200 series, this function is only a requirement on 40k.

    Claas dominator 106 settings

    It's mostly been covered but I'll just repeat it, are the drum & concave worn ? Is the concave badly bowed ? Are the drum rasp bars so worn they've become almost bald & are sharp ? Is the basic setting of the Drum/concave gapping right. Does the drum speed get up to 1500 rpm. Next is the...

    class forager

    Of all the trailed Claas foragers we sold only one was an engine on version. It was a 60e if I remember correctly. Anyway, it had a Ford 120hp engine on it, a local farmer/contractor ran it for quite a few years & to be honest I can't recall too many major issues with it.

    Stopping red fading

    This stuff works in restoring faded paint & will protect it for so long. There are though lots of products available now to protect paint. Ceramic being the hardest wearing, longest lasting although generally not cheap option.

    Tractor servicing costs

    When I worked at main dealer, IH & CaseIH, plus Claas, we stocked recommend oils as well as a less expensive ( still good quality ) oils. Customers then had a choice of what they wanted to spend their hard earned cash on. Provided the non manufacturer branded oils were of a good quality & within...

    recommend me a round baler please

    Another vote for a Claas Rollant 46, I worked on Claas kit & the R46 is probably the most simple, certainly the most reliable of Claas balers around that era, find a good one & you can't go far wrong. The earlier Rollant 44 isn't a bad baler either, it's just not as good a bet as a Rollant 46...
