    Massy 5455 dyno 4

    Use hand throttle, foot brake and if unsure the clutch.

    Lift arm mod for mower?

    We just bought a new 8’ Kuhn plain mower. It came with a chain from the headstock side closest to the mower which was supposed to go to the top link bracket on tractor. Turns out this is in case used on older tractor without electronic positional linkage to set a constant height. We therefore...

    Most efficient way to combine a large triangular field?

    Having just rowed up some hay in small triangle shaped fields I can tell you progress seemed much quicker doing the middle straight than when I was going round doing the headland. As previously said when the triangle starts to get small it just becomes a pain.

    MF 5455 and Loader

    See them advertised for 30k sometimes

    MF 5455 and Loader

    Couldn’t rate them highly enough really. Been running them for 18 years with minimal bother. Look at front axle pivot wear when viewing. Damper plate between engine and gearbox is a consumable, but you just need to take that on the chin, not too bad. Check for evidence of greasing if front axle...

    Massey 6480 t3 just gone really aggressive and jerky on the shuttle and clutch at bottom

    The Belleville washers have gone in my 5455 twice now, at 500hrs and 17,500 hrs. Both times it was the forward clutch pack and it would only drive backwards, no matter what position the shuttle was in. It is speedshift so we could at least knock it into neutral to use linkage.

    Retrofitting softride to a loader

    It would be better for them to be on common pipework to the two rams, but I expect it makes little difference. Identify your tee in point and put in a pressure gauge instead of accumulator. Have a few different weights on the loader and read off the pressure and get a pre charge to suit. My...

    Kevs diary

    I smell a scam. All water is billions of years old, unless you’ve struck a deal with JCB to put bags on the exhausts of the new hydrogen engines.

    I think this tractor needs front end weights!!!

    Seems to be the done thing out there, trailers to big for the tractor combined with pulling above the PTO somewhere.

    You have to go into the menu in the dash to set it as such. A reasonable safety feature in my opinion but they have thought of tasks like slurry tanking.

    Massey Front Loader Rams leaking

    Those rods are clearly pitted. Just small dinks in the chrome like that will allow oil to pass the seal and leak out. They will also start to damage the seal.

    Lenken DL120 skim clamps

    Try Westlake ploughs. Their listings on the website are good (new and used parts) but a phone call will otherwise answer your question. Don’t bother emailing them.

    Bullock acting odd

    We had some smaller calves doing funny things, but probably not capable of climbing walls. They picked up some toxicity from some straw bale walls (we think) multi vitamin injections cured them over a few days.

    Another PTO guard thread - How do I pull this one off?

    I think he means the yoke won’t come off the machine. Ratchet strap around yoke to loader or shed post and give the yoke some hammer to try and release the bond.

    Re-ringing a roller

    And some farmers who would dearly love to have a set of triples to speed the job up (or even incentivize doing it at all sometimes) but for the amount they would be used simply can not afford a ‘good’ set.

    Massey Rear Wiper Broken

    I’ve had the wires break from all of the window opening and shutting. They go the cab side of the plug, so check all 4 wires have continuity or a power signal.

    Kverneland Plough Mouldboards

    100 leg spacings require more lift as the weight is further out. If you’ve got a 4 cylinder tractor I would be weary of the front end lifting up. From personal experience I would stay away from the 120 headstock, which has the ram out front and a slot for the end of the ram to slide in. I...

    Retrofitting softride to a loader

    Some might, but there is one on each side of the circuit on my quicke. I believe some have 3or 4 accumulators for your reason. However not had a problem with the single accumulator on the up circuit and works with various loads on the loader. Needs right precharge obviously. Think it’s 20bar on...

    Retrofitting softride to a loader

    As per nearly you can fit it anywhere just with a tee and accumulator. You can make it more complicated by adding in a valve or solenoid Some loaders have 2 accumulators, one on the down side of the system, and another on the up side to take the bounce out.

    Massey 5711S Vs 5711M Vs 5711 Global 🤯

    We had a 5S on demo. I know it is more money, but was a nice tractor, clearly properly thought out. Doing 1000hrs a year I think it would be a suitable investment.
