    Main air filter.

    Was talking to a distributor the other day about ordering filters when i happened to mention the air filter, i take mine out and blow the dirt out with an air line, same with the cab filters. No he said, you should leave it until warning lamp shows then replace it, that way you don,t break the...

    Fendt filters

    Is there anyplace you can buy them, say on-line or a kind of super store? There are quite a few eg control pressure filter, ad-blue etc etc. I don,t want to pay a 50% mark up from main dealer. Its a main service and there are quite a few to get.

    Mc Hale netter

    It works ok but every few hundred bales it wraps around the rubber roller about 1/3 and a tiny bit ends up on the bale, very annoying when in hay like i was today, Any problem solvers out there.

    Kuhn FBP 3135 v Mc Hale Fusion

    Given the choice what do people prefer. I do like the look of the wrapping system on the kuhn, the extra wrap on the edges is a good thing, but the mchale is such a strong and reliable baler.

    Bale wrap and net price

    I thought before i ring the merchant i would see what other people have been quoted for net and bale wrap. I don,t like forking out thousands for bale wrap, then having to wait several months after it,s been applied just to get paid back on the stuff. Do farmer/contractors add on a surcharge...

    For several years I have been charged £100 for every 10k worth of overdraft, until now where its jumped 50% for a 12 month period. Call centre won,t do f all about it, they say that,s what it is now, so we are paying the same rates as jo bloggs who has a 2k overdraft facility i presume. This...
