    Just seen this

    Oddly, I was thinking exactly the opposite. No tractor I've driven in recent years has underwhelmed me as much as the current 6120m. Coming from a 6230 Standard I thought it clumsy, high both to get in and out of and to go under sheds, not appreciably more powerful and possessed of quite the...

    Direct Drilling Grass

    After persevering for a few years with a plough more suited to corn ground, I've bought an old KV conventional on No3 boards to try. It should get it's 1st outing after silage. @Kevtherev's Dad has the same setup (albeit at 12 ins furrow width as opposed to my 14) and it produces some lovely...

    Today NOT at work

    No matter how big your farm & machinery, there's always a place for a single axle dropside trailer.(y)

    Loaded up and trucking!!

    Llanidloes road, Newtown. Well known place for bridge strikes, there used to be a signed route through the housing estates to avoid it. Newtown bypass opened a few months ago, so can't understand what he was doing on the old road?

    Spot sprayer pump

    Cheers Neil, but I decided to cut my losses and buy a new pump when my local Wynnstay happened to have one in stock. I'll bear you in mind for the future though (haven't brought the tractor sprayer out of hibernation yet...)(y)

    Spot sprayer pump

    The Delavan pump on my Enduramaxx spot sprayer is leaking heavily where the pressure switch joins the pump housing. Guessing the diaphragm has ruptured. Anyone know if repair kits are available, or do I have to bite the bullet and replace the pump?

    Today at work

    I can't go wider than an 8ft conventional ballast roll because of some of the lanes and gates around here. So every year around this time I get covetous about an end tow. Until that is I find out how much they are.:eek:

    6610 replacement

    I had a 6120m with a 623r loader on demo a couple of weeks ago and really didn't care for it. Loader had more capacity but seemed clumsy compared to my old 633 and view to the attachment was terrible. Pallet forks vanished altogether. Also quite finicky to put on. Found despite what the lad...

    6610 replacement

    Exactly. It's not many years ago all you heard on this forum and it's predecessors was how cr@p 7530s were and that what you wanted was to find a good 7810.

    Row crop duals

    Tractor is still at the getting quotes stage. So probably 460/85r38 or 520. Hoping with narrow duals to keep width to 3m so can run on the road without removing (both legally and, around here, practically).

    Row crop duals

    This is the sort of thing I had in mind, ideally a tad narrower. Picture lifted from Stocks website.

    Row crop duals

    Has anyone experience of using narrow row crop type duals outside normal tractor rear tyres? Looking into changing the tractor and I don't want to go particularly wide on the tyre front. It will spend half it's life on loader/road work, we've got some steep ground so grip is mostly more...

    Short disc ..... any good

    I've got a 3m Rol-ex on order with @Ludan on here. Looks very similar to the other Eastern European machines above. Well priced too.
