A friend found this when they were clearing out an old shed.
Either due to abuse or design the teeth are not set, (but they could have been when new?)
The steel is rigid and not designed to flex.

Reports in the paper today that Boeing is thinking of winding down production of the 747.

The tractor is a 2001 with about 7k hours.
A while ago the Datatronic seemed to lose its memory as it would 'factory reset' over night, lose its presets and start 'talking' French.
Now it has given up even that and...
My "old style" Pure Highway has died.
With a plug in aerial and 12v plug you could move it with you between tractors, combine and pick up.
The replacements all appear to have to be wired in.
Has anyone recommend a good DAB that can be shoved in a pocket and moved easily?
