    NIR Slurry Application

    As the French would say… sacré bleu!! Cheers to Chaunce from Solsteer for the wiring harness to get it working. HL is plugged into the Fendt isobus port, and JD screen is then plugged into two sockets inside the cab using the Solsteer harness. They are both seeing each other on the Fendt bus...

    NIR Slurry Application

    A start has been made 💪 Previously looked like this. Should lower the whole thing down too for better view out the back window

    Best way to lift & transport a 2 wheeled farm bike?

    A cheap push bike might be the job for your initial ride back, least it doesn’t matter if it gets a knock. 1.5k cycle that in a few minutes

    Fiat 110-90 makes £64,000 at auction

    I was told it went to a man near Limavady, who previously had lost a couple of 110’s in a fire. I don’t know the fellow though so can’t say if it’s true or not.

    NIR Slurry Application

    No, unfortunately no grants available for it in NI. Bought HarvestLab second hand, a new JD universal display and have a cable on order from Solsteer to make it talk to the Novatel receiver in the Fendt. Next hurdle is getting the dribble bar modified to accept the Harvest Lab.

    NIR Slurry Application

    Hi Stephen, appreciate your input. Our digestate is noticeable thinner in the early part of a spreading job, we mix it continuously whilst spreading but it still gets thicker towards the end. Our goal is to keep the nutrient within our control to help plan chemical fert application. With the JD...

    NIR Slurry Application

    Ok so a bit of an update - I have now bought a HarvestLab 3000, manure kit and a JD 4640 screen. I'll update this thread with how I get on - the first mission is to modify our existing dribble bar to make room for the skateboard and to get the HL mounted on it. Will be running it on a Fendt...

    Slurry proofing a tractor

    Has anyone painted the inner wheel arches with anything to protect from slurry? Our last spreading tractor the paint started to blister a fair bit inside the arches and I want to prevent it on the new one. Would Waxoyl/Dinitrol be a waste of time when the machine gets hot pressure washed, if...

    Can Fendt Novatel talk to JD Harvestlab 3000?

    I am working with a JD dealer to integrate HarvestLab 3000 manure sensing into our spreading operation. The dealer "thinks" but doesn't know, whether the Fendt Novatel receiver can provide a gps signal for the HarvestLab, to give it forward speed and mapping. This would leave a nicely...
