    Upgrading a Lely RP245

    I wouldnt say im a big fan of the control box but that would be somthing that i would get use too. the way the drive chains are being run, there is a lot more corners for the chain to run and more sprockets which makes me think more stuff to go wrong. And the biggest thing is taking a roller...

    Replacing front tyres only

    Replacing fronts without back is no problem if the same profile of tyre is put back on as replacements. It would put less strain on the tractor running with 2 new tyres on front than it would with 2 very worn tyres. Bold tyres can cause front diff problems if run for too long as causes vibration.

    Silage additive

    Sowing grass seed

    Have found a grass harrow with air seeder for sale at not bad money, i would believe they would work alright at overseeding a bare field after sheep after a few passes to gather a tilth. Bearing in mind it get manages properly afterwards!

    Sowing grass seed

    Our issue is having the seeds on the surface of the ground, hence the chain harrowing. With the tined cultivator as you said its tucked away just underneath the surface. The only other option would be a guttler greenmaster

    Sowing grass seed

    You have a good point, by using the tine harrow seeder it will still cut out the chain harrowing after spreading the seed out.

We normally run a chain harrow over after...
