    Dairy cake rejection

    Hi,we have just received a load of dairy cake which about 1/4 of our cows are rejecting in the parlour. It is supposed to be the same as we have been using all summer. Has anyone else been having similar problems,or are we just unlucky with a batch of cake?

    NH1530 Wobble box

    The taper shaft that connects onto the arm that drives the knife was a little bit scored and the nut holding it on could have been tighter,but I don't think that was the problem,the key and keyway are fine.

    NH1530 Wobble box

    I have taken it apart,no obvious signs of bearing failure,some wiggle in the two ends that join to the y shaped piece,but seems ok apart from that. The two grub screws are about 3mm deep into the casing and not sure how much further they can safely go,but are tight at that,but still gives over...

    NH1530 Wobble box

    How much play between the pulley and the knife drive arm should there be? I have tightened the two grub screws under the pulley which I think is supposed to reduce any play but there seems to be still about over an inch of play,when the knife drive arm changes direction. The wobble box was...

    Kramer oil pipes

    We have bitten the bullet and traded in our kramer for a new one and another 3 years warranty . The new one hasn't arrived yet but we decided to trade in before prices went even further up. It is integral to operations here and reliability is worth the extra expense Not entirely satisfactory...

    Opened the info pack for voting and was surprised to see such high remuneration and bonuses,given the current financial backdrop. Not good PR at the very least!!!

    JD diff lock?

    Can the speed that the diff lock automatically disengages be altered on a JD6520 premium? At present it disengages at around 8mph ,but in my JD6330 it will not disengage until about 15mph,so I wondered if it could be altered. TIA S&P

    Research into cubical cleaners

    A proper analysis of cell count/bactoscans pre and post use of a mechanised cubicle cleaner would be very interesting. Proper account of relative uses of bedding material and anti-bacterial agents should also be factored in,as machines such as q-bedders make it easier /safer to use. We have used...

    Replacement seat

    Thinking of replacing the mechanical seat in my 6520 which although is still working,seems to aggravate the bulging disc in my back. I was wondering what the best seat is available at the moment? What the likely cost is and best place to get it from? TIA
