    Profi Plus

    The model year is 2016, any idea how to find out what receiver can go onto it? The tractor is currently sitting in a second hand machinery dealers yard, not at a Fendt dealership

    Profi Plus

    I am looking at a 5 year old Fendt 516 Profi Plus, can anyone tell me what I would need to buy to make it steer and apply fert using variable rate maps? It currently has no receiver on the roof but it is Profi Plus which has the 10” screen and I believe it to be steering ready.

    Which mounted sprayer

    Mounted is surely easier on the ground if tractor is already kitted out on good tyres

    Free flow return.

    Would you not be as well to connect it into the free flow fitting to keep the oil cool? We borrowed a machine lately which uses constant oil, plugged into double acting spool valve. Our tractor has a temp sensor in the hydraulics and it went off after 10 minutes. Just showed me that the same...

    Which mounted sprayer

    We are looking our first mounted sprayer as well, anyone tried KV/Vicon? We have a dealer nearby and thought they looked quite smart, vertical fold 24m... Also, we think a front tank would be a useful addition for ballast and extra capacity, would we want to spend the money on a proper...

    Need a Jetter

    3 out of 3 sounds good! Anyone jetting big drains with theirs? Apparently you can get a cage that goes around the nozzle to keep it centred in larger diameter pipes?

    Need a Jetter

    What’s what in the world of Jetter’s - been pricing Sieger (Agrifac), Mastenbroek, Homburg and Mitchel-Rowlands (S-S) Are there any second hand machines around that could be bought, to save going new? And would you go Hydraulic powered or Mastenbroek which runs much higher water pressure and...

    High horse power four cylinders can’t sustainably do the same job as a larger six pot of similar HP. Tell me I’m wrong

    Depends what you want, I had Fendt 415 (4 cyl 155hp) and T6090 (6 cyl 165hp), obviously the T6090 had more grunt but the 415 is extremely capable, over a ton lighter, turns a much tighter radius and is cheaper on fuel for the jobs it is used for (which are mainly field operations). But obviously...

    Is there such thing as an air spanner?

    Threaded hole, all needed replaced this time rather than just turned.

    Is there such thing as an air spanner?

    Cheers for all the suggestions, I think Allen head bolts could be the solution, will see if I can get several hundred ordered up!! Thanks to all who contributed

    Bendy socket no good, can barely get the bare socket itself on

    Is there such thing as an air spanner?

    I know all about it, done it plenty of times before but there HAS to be a better way. We have 2 of these machines which is actually over 300 bolts to change

    Is there such thing as an air spanner?

    Here’s my problem, even a 1/4” drive air ratchet won’t fit in. There’s 162 bolts to undo by hand 😭😭😭
