    What's the stable door bolt latching to now you've taken the chunk out the wall?

    They are a tight fit. If you're normally a 10, then you'll probably need a size 11. That's what I've found anyway

    Valtra or Deere

    It's been a couple of years since that John Deere bikini fitted me properly to be honest 😳

    That the one you say only cost £8.73 in replacement parts for the first 8000 hours? 🙄🤣

    James DS has decided he's above the rules of TFF about hiding your identity, and has registered another user name and email address. Let's him go undercover to tell us all how brilliant he was choosing valtra 25 years ago 🤣

    Valtra v John Deere

    Don't know if Agri knives said about the brakes, but find it best to ignore what Jimmy writes 😆 If the pedal was soft, the brakes do need bled properly with a trailer pipe connected. It's a simple easy thing to do and results in a very solid pedal. The dealer has crapped on their doorstep if...

    Think it was to match his hat, or maybe it's makes him look taller? Dunno, ask @Northeastfarmer... 🤔

    Valtra v John Deere

    The direct gearbox "engine" braking is superb. Its a common complaint that valtra brake pedal feel isn't good, and they're spongey overall. If they are, then they're needing bled properly with a trailer hose connected. Bled properly, you need to watch you don't put yourself through the...

    Oh bugger oh bugger oh bugger What have I done? I bought a Direct for loader work! The gearbox is going to break???? Do you know that in the entire year that I spent looking for a second hand N series direct, I never saw not a single one advertised that had gearbox trouble? Never even heard...

    Valtra v John Deere

    Valtra has 2 gearboxes, the direct "Vario" hydrostatic, and the "conventional" 4 range 5 powershift. This is in the active, and versu. Most if not all active/versu will also have a creeper box which will be slow enough for feeding silage. Active has manual spool levers, and versu has electric...

    Valtra v John Deere

    Lifting the top 2 layers on their cans you only need to stick the bottom tines in 6 inches or so, the top grab holds the 4 together. It's easier with the new grab (X FORM GS76) because the top opens over vertical back towards to tractor. Previous (smaller GL66) grab to get the bottom tines in...

    Aye, but CNH brakes really are crap I mean, single discs in this day and age? 🤔 🤣🤣🤣

    I like my grab too 😜 It's a 7'6" wide X form GS76 forklift grab with 1100mm tines. No bother to the Q5M loader 💪(though lifting 2.5 tonnes is best done with a wee bit of weight on the back) After 8 pages, it's definitely a lot cheaper spending someone else's money 👍 🤣

    Crikey at first I thought that your silage bales must be very small to be able to lift 4 at a time..... I can only do that with straw 🤔🤣 The new quicke loaders crowd is pretty much the same as MX, and better dump unless I'm mistaken. They're both in a different league compared to Deere...

    Loading a bale trailer

    Without damaging the bales, or damaging the tractor and trailer? I'd say all three would suffer with a bit of unintentional "modification" yes

    Valtra v John Deere

    @Northeastfarmer what spec of N series have they quoted? Active, versu, or direct? Active is 5 powershift and manual spools, versu adds electric spools, and direct is the bells and whistles "Vario" gearbox. Go for the direct, please! You will not regret it. It drives just like the forklift on...
