    KV LD-85 plough turnover creep

    Hello. For seveal years now the plough has tried to creep while its lifted up, until the rear wheel rests on the ground. This means when you are on the road you have to keep fiddling with the spool to keep it at 90 degrees. Recently it has started doing this while it is in the ground, so that...

    Anyone out there have any knowledge of the robomatic automatic shutoff system? I have it installed on my 575 from when it used to run the farms blower fan for the drying floor. The idea of it is that it shuts the engine off if it runs out of water or oil (as its left going overnight) . But the...

    580G quick hitch

    Hello again I recently bought a quick hitch for my 580g, manual with a bar in a hole. However it seems that the hole for the back pin is about 1/2-1" to far back to fit on the buckets I have - it hits on the frame of the quick hitch before it gets to the tab that moves backwards and forwards on...

    So you may remember I put something on here a while back about our 398 with it's 880 loader. Well, one of the 880s tip rams will not seal round the flange nut, keeps leaking even after some of the local agri engineer's "magic glue" and 2 or 3 times of fixing it... the loader is completely worn...

    Direct Drilling Vs Alternatives

    We currently plough in the stubble, and then drill with a sulky master 3 with suffolk coulters on the back of a 3M kuhn powerharrow. Works well so long as there isn't any rubbish on the surface to clog in the harrows at the back or between the coulters. We are considering direct drilling or...
