    Air Diffuser's

    On a Cayena drill would the fitted air diffuser's make a seed blockage monitoring system defunct? Its a rare event to get a blockage but most happen at the coulter from soil plugging. The seeds will blow out the vent won't they?

    Will classic cars be vilified?

    Some of us have classic cars which may have been an enjoyable investment. Do you think as electric vehicles become more mainstream with tighter emissions in place that the older combustion engine will be frowned upon? A bit like smoking has in the last few years. Could this sentiment make them...

    Kuhn PTO shaft

    A bit disappointed when our new Kuhn 5004R turned up with 8 hour grease PTO shafts having seen the above before buying. Has anyone got the 250hr ones? Local dealer says they only come with the rigid version not the folding.

    Claas Tucano 570 Combine

    Running a Lexion 540 at present and require 30% or so more ouput. Anyone running a Tucano 570,preferably the 2016 model,with the single rotor. Not sure we can get the output from the straw walker combines so we may have to go up to the hybrids to achieve 40t/hr in 10t/ha wheats!!

    JD 7800 clutch adjustment

    Clutch pedal has dropped down a bit and not fully disengaging drive when applied especially when warmed up. Can you adjust these? Can't see a master cylinder anywhere but they must be hydraulic. Think I can see a cable from the pedal. Thanks

    More Traction

    Need a bit more traction for the moler. Get to a tough bit and struggle to pull it which is not good enough. Got the power but what would you do for another 15% grip? Not gonna use duals and the rear 710's are about 60% tread left and used at 10psi. Got some ideas below but what order of...

    Defender 90 Drop Arm

    Trying to replace the drop-arm that comes from the steering box on our Defender 90, but can't get it off the spline! In the picture you can see our 2-prong puller done up as tight as we can. Had plenty of WD40 and even a little heat (bearing in mind the box seals which we don't want to ruin!)...

    Solideal tyres

    Anyone had any experience with Solideal R1 tyres? They have been recommended for our loader(R20"x405/70). Mainly for concrete work but occasionally on dirt tracks when dryish. They have a more hard wearing industrial type tread. Used in construction a lot apparently. Cheers

    JD 7800 rear links

    Want to use our 7800 with an old DP7e (6 furrow) plough for a few acres a year. A setup we used many moons ago but the lift arms pick the plough up far to quickly IMO which has fractured the headstock. Is there a way to slow it down to a gentle raise! Cheers

    Weasel v Bunnies

    We used to have lots of rabbits around the woods going back a few years but Weasels have been spotted on several occasions and seem to be controlling the numbers. I have seen them on acrobactic bunnies back on 2 occasions - amazing. Not many rabbits left but are the weasels doing any harm...

    Turbo woes

    When changing the engine oil filter on our Cummin's equipped SP sprayer we remove the clean air intake tube from the air filter to the turbo for easier access. But the spindle, now exposed, that goes through the turbo could be moved up and down about 2mm's. It did spin freely. Not the sort of...

    Grease on MFWD U joints

    Some of our John Deere's have grease nipples on the front wheel drive UJ's and some don't. Thought they must be sealed for life but in the manual,of our 7830 for example, it says remove plug and screw in a grease nipple every 250 hours. Never have in 2000hrs does anybody else? Some kingpins...
