    Ultra Reliable Tractor?

    Aye-up, This could be the shortest thread ever and let’s not get into waffling on about preferred colours. I might be looking for a tractor soon. 150-180 hp ish. Maybe 5-10 years old, up to 5000 hrs. I know, they are rare. More than the colour I’m interested in the reliability. I don’t...

    Bombproof old bus to pull 6 furrows.

    Just a discussion that arose from the tedium of lugging 4 furrows along at 4.5mph with 100hp in a biggish field. Hypothetically 20k ish budget, comfortable cab, realistically 150hp plus, any non exotic mainstream badge, not as old as TW 25 era. Just idly batting thoughts around, over lunch. No...

    what do you do? full time staff member, had many a telling off for cab smelling of smoke over the 2 years he's been here, but has always denied it. I've always been suspicious he either smokes with the back window open and hopes I don't notice, or stands in the doorway on a rainy day to save...

    As above I only ask as a machinery “geek” as opposed to having to buy the tractor or drive it !!!

    Cleaning out Combine Grain Tank

    Do you clean it out between crops? How do you do it? We tend to hoover it out here but getting the pipe in there and lifting the auger cover is no easy or quick job. All at height and needs the teleporter to attend. Thought about fitting a blower to blow it to the spout end. How’s it done on...

    Is it just me?

    For the last two days , the media has been full of sob stories about people “heroic” efforts to get back to blighty before a 14 day quarantine is enforced. Tens of thousands of poor families have had to curtail their holidays drive hundreds of mile non stop and sometimes pay thousands of pounds...

    Tom Heap

    he was on a programme on Monday about how our eating habits have changed during Covid, we have plenty of circumstantial evidence but I would be surprised if the BBC wanted to tell everyone we are eating more meat, did anyone see it and what did they tell us?

    PSIMat Pressure washer pump

    A good while back I was given a large pressure washer with a Brooke Crompton 2.2kw electric motor. All it needed to get it running was a new contactor. It was a proper job with a lance to match that had recoil about the same as a magnum 12! Mo markings on it but a PSIMAT ???/70 pump with...

    Case Magnum Freeflow return

    Hi, I have a Case IH Magnum 280, it has power beyond on complete with a small case drain, and large return which goes into the return oil line so has a residual pressure. I am wanting to add a large return with no pressure, has anyone done this or know where to tap into. Many thanks Paul

    Why is modern machinery so flipping unreliable?!

    It gets to about 3000 hours and hey presto, air con failures, ad-blue faults, pipes leaking, going into limp mode for no good reason and all costs a fortune to fix. I'm fed up with it frankly. I want to go back to a John Deere 10 series before the build quality of everything fell off a cliff...

    Deer problems

    Anyone got any ideas about how to keep deer off Fodder Beet. We have got a herd of about 80 that are in the process of munching their way through 20 acres. Anyone tried Grazers, and is it any good?

    This is the future

    @Clive you are about the only person I know here who might be interested in this . . . The rest of TFF seem to masturbate over any time spent in tractors, especially shîtty old Fords & Masseys . . . Personally, the less tractor hours the better
