    I hated the decelerator on the road found it bloody dangerous! You used it to slow down coming up to a roundabout, then you needed to stop what do you do? take your foot off the declarator which in turns gives you more regs speeding you up, but you actually wanted to slow down! As an experienced...

    all of the decelerators I’ve had anything to do with you set what revs they drop too and it was like an on off switch. When you got to the point of the switch being activated it cut the revs to the preselected engine speed,,

    Sounds a bit way out to me tbh. surely al the deceleration pedal is is a switch that onice activated cuts the engine revs to those that you have set on the armrest comouter? How would it know how far you had pressed this new found accelerator.?

    Thin wax oil down with a but of standard thinners! Thin enough to go through a paraffin gun. thinners evaporates leaves a nice thin coat of waxoyl that after a couple of meters of ploughing has all come off

    Vaderstad 8m headland trip in tips I’m missing a bit

    What speed do you run your fan at? How times do you drill round the headland? Can you set the sensor at the back to turn the seeder on earlier? Do you fun in low lift when drilling? How fast are you Travelling when dropping the drill in? Lots of variables!

    Problem is though it’s a compromise and Pete knows there are better machines for spreadin* lime so he will find every little fault with it!,

Etc etc i reckon he could purchase an older Tractor unit and low loader for circa £15k tart it up over...
