    Kuhn auto reset plough

    Does anyone know where there is a decent 121/122/123 4 or 5 furrow on h4 bodies for sale.Absolutely sick to death of replacing shear bolts on our DP100 (one of our blocks of land is called Fishleigh rock) Can’t justify new and secondhand they are sold instantly and a 150 would be too heavy.

    Neighbour is considering one as a loader tractor,would you spec TLS on a tractor that only really does loader work? Cracking looking tractor,ive only driven a Valtra with front suspension and a loader and it was hard to be precise with it.I presume you can turn it off on an M series.

    NH T5070 lost forward gears

    Forward gears suddenly stopped,reversed out the shed then wouldn't move forwards.First thought is solenoid or fwd/rev clutch packs,4300hrs but they have been hard hours,a lot of round baling,loading a wrapper and hauling heavy loads.Anyone had similar problem?

    Ok,probably not long term but in the short term the pound is weakening all the time,meaning higher prices for everything and with harvest fast approaching I cant see too much wrong or is this too simplistic? Not good for new machinery prices I know,but as long as JC is kept out of number...
