    Volvo Ec140 value

    If its a machine you have had for a while and know how its been looked after then keep it , you will gain very little in performance or running costs by getting a newer machine and 7000 hrs is not hogh hours for a digger.

    Jd 9780i header settings

    Isn’t it amazing how people can run a machine and have no idea if it is running correctly, it’s no wonder some machines get a bad reputation when there set up wrong from new and used by people that have no clue on operating them.

    What effect heatwave on crops.

    Maize needs constant regular heat not highs and lows for good growth if it stays in the high 20's 24 hours a day with good access to water you will get optimum growth but when it climbs into the mid 30's growth will slow the same as when the temp drops below 20c.
