    Weaving sabre tine user thread

    How much disturbance is there when drilling at 30-40mm in chopped straw? and how does it handle freshly cut oat straw? I now run a GD, but since most of my drilling is in chopped straw in the autumt and spring, i am considering switching to a sabre. I used to run a CO with metcalfes, and loved...

    What are the benefits of no-till farming?

    Would the increased losses from a stripper header be compensated by the lower diesel consumption? Here in Norway we have to stop combining early evening because the straw is getting damp. Would a stripper header let me continue a few hours until the actual grain moisture is increasing? if so...

    Options for leading discs

    I ended up buying yetter coulters from Canada and individually mounting them in front of each tine. Having used them this year i am wery happy with how they work. The only problem is the two discs behind the front support wheels that i had to mount quite close to the tine. They can block up...

    Individual depht control on Horsch CO

    I have been thinking about making adjustable dephtwheels behind each coulter of my co4. Something along the lines of the Sprinter NT. Since the coulter is positioned so far behind the "hinge" i think it could work. And then i could adjust downpressure by lovering the machine and have a low cost...

    Options for leading discs

    @JDJ what is the part number for the HEVA discs? thinking of maybe using those and make individual mounts infront of each tine. Would the rubber mounting take up some of the twisting force in sharp turns, or would it just break?

    Options for leading discs

    I`m looking to adding leading discs to my co4 to reduce disturbance. What options do i have? I like the simplicity of the leading discs on the Mzuri rezult, but are they strong enough for the job? The Yetter ones look good, but pricey. Are there other supliers of straight discs that i should...

    Air bleeds on co4 with metcalfe?

    Recently bought a co4 and have ordered metcalfe tines for it. I am considering getting a set of weaving air bleeds. Does anyone have experience with this setup?
