    Stihl strimmer difficult to start

    Got the strimmer out to tidy yard up and was tricky to start and when it did fire up it would idle but as soon as you try to open the throttle it would stop.Any suggestions on what I should try or do I just take it to local lawn mower guy?

    Is a Fendt 720 the same as a 724?

    Are they the same mechanically with different software to produce the different amounts of power? If so could you buy a 720 and chip/map it to produce the same hp as a 724?

    Light weight 14t root crop

    We have 14t Bailey root crops are present and find the unladen weight of over 6.5t plenty enough. Maybe they are over engineered for carrying potatoes and corn as that what we use them for.

    Lightest 16T root trailer

    Are there any good but light weight root trailers on the market? We have 14t Bailey root crop trailers and they weigh 6.5t empty , which seems a lot of dead weight to be hauling around if we don’t really need the strength, as they are only hauling grain and potatoes.

    Gps Pilot loosing signal

    We have a Lexion 760 13 plate with Class Gps Pilot using egnos.It works really well when it is receiving satellite signal but when you turn at the end the grain tank seems to block the signal and it won’t work, worse with a full tank. Class say the receiver needs to be replaced with a more up to...

    Adding furrow to Kverneland LM85

    We have a 5 furrow version of the above and I know it is not recommended but would adding a sixth furrow be out of the question ? We would only be pulling it with 160hp and tractors have damped linkage now which helps reduce the shock loads .Really like the plough and does a cracking job , but...

    Lexion 760 linseed rotors

    We may be getting a used Lexion 760 and it has linseed rotors fitted which we could possibly have changed for ordinary ones. Been told by the rep ordinary rotors are gentler on the straw and slightly more efficient at separating the grain from the straw. We don't grow linseed at present so would...

    Claas 2Xl to 4XL auger

    Looking at changing our combine and seems sensible to try and go to harvest CTF and 30 m tramlines and 10.5m header would suit our system. Have found a Claas 760 with 10.5m header that ticks all the boxes except it has a 2XL auger on and believe we need a 4XL so we can stay on the tramlines at...
