    MF 8s

    Was that rtk for that sort of money? . No front pto and just on standard 42s rather than the fancy hi load 38s I'm told the last of the 7720s vt where 108k. Add on front pto and rtk with fancy tyres was knocking on for 130k I'd rather have a 7719 vt than a new small 8s without a vario .

    winter oats

    Another field looks pretty handy too until I'm down in about them . Was trying to work out a plant count but a 10cm grid probably isn't big enough. Think its round up time for them

    Fuel price tracker

    It won't imo. They got caught out with stocks last year but now I think it will go same way as fags and alcohol and be a constant upward trend to the highest we can stand

    winter oats

    My storm sown canyon spring oats are still holding on . Tempted to leave some of them to take right through to harvest now. What happens about royalties tho as technically the seed was never harvested and was never off the heap

    Difference in 4ft to 5 fy rounds in rough weight

    Folk have given the answer but a few years ago I baled for a livestock place . They had a straw bedder so anything decent was done in 4 foot that could be rolled out by hand if wanted . Anything a bit rawer was solid centre 5 footers for the blower . I was shocked how much faster I could bale...

    Manitou 627 blowing fuse 8 for transmission

    Mine was wiring for the dump button on the gear stick. The wire runs down through the centre of gear lever and was shorting where it comes out. Can't remember if it was fuse 8 that blew or not as was a while ago now

    In furrow ploughing on 710s

    I tried a set on the overum but found it increased slip on heavier ground as it had sliced the wall off into the furrow bottom

    Ploughing with 710tyres

    I have an overum xl. One tractor on 710s and another on 650s . I can actually get it making a better job on the 710s as they have a narrower track . The 650s are out at 80" so the outside walls are out further than the 710s at 74". I have also used a couple of KV ploughs on number 28s and...

    Combine and tractor replacement policy

    Doubt it will be half of every farm but Lee does have some less forgiving ground so it might be an option for many hecs imo

    It’s official. Ploughing is good for soil OM!

    We had to spring plough some heavier fields last year as simply couldn't move the plough in the wet winter . Plough fully closed in , power harrow on stand by and tried a few times before finally going approx 48 hours after the plough , this seemed the right time for not being too raw but before...
