    Horsch Taro 6m mounted disc drill

    I believe they have power disc coulters, are these any good for dd and moved ground light and heavy? Looks like a good set up, wonder how well it would work in the wet. They are a similar set up to a trailed one minus the front discs?

    Interested to hear peoples thoughts, there is a chap on youtube running a Kuhn 6m with a weaving tine on the back and behind a New Holland T7 245 I think. 1.5t hopper on the front balances it well. The New Holland is one down from a Puma 240?

    Frontier to blame for holding the OSR price down?

    OSR is currently around £320 with demand out stripping supply in the UK easily, importing large boat loads from abroard mainly Canada is holding the price down. Neonics dressing still used over there. I have never dealt with them and don't think I will to be honest.
