    Which factors influence your machinery purchases most?

    This is driven by my curiosity and a thread from earlier today. Which factors influence where you purchase a new machine from? I realise there are many, cost of ownership, depreciation, dealer backup, warranty etc. Do you buy by brand as that’s what you’ve always run? Is your local dealer...

But I feel the drop in output from 8 to 6 plus unblocking Coulter’s etc means the amount we can do in a day is much less at a time when the weather...

I've been reading through a lot of machinery threads and trying to collate the...

    Currently run a 3m Amazone super power harrow and drill combination but looking to move to a 4m setup. Probably either a Kuhn, Lemken or Amazone. All heavy duty models (260hp tractor) with a rear tank. Is there much difference in their weights? Thanks

    Horsch duet coulters

    Has anyone modified their old duet Coulter’s to be more like a bean coulter? I have a set that will never go back on the drill and am after a narrower point. I think I could cut off the wings and weld a new seed boot on and end up with a 25mm point? Any experience??
