How good are kubota tractors
compared to other makes
The reason i am asking is the main dealer based at Oswestry
is looking for a fitter and I thought of enquiring but things have changed a bit since I last
worked at main dealer 40 years ago
Once again trying to weigh up whether to buy a jcb. For the duties of short transport and fertiliser application. On the road I feel jcb has the edge, in the field a conventional tractor seems not far ahead. So it comes down to reliability and service, running costs.
Tractors with inboard...
Hi Guys and Gals
for those of you that don’t know me I import and export farm machinery. I used to do this in the UK before emigrating to Australia in 2015 .
Just putting a question to you all .

We could do with another tractor. Currently we are hiring through harvest which is costing £700/week and then using a contractor at other times during the year. Last year in total we spent £4,000 on hire and another £2,000 on a contractor. It will do about 350 hours a year so not massive but...
I have a tractor on 600/65/38 and 540/65/24 and would like to go a bit narrower for yard work. I've been told 520/70/38 will fit the back, what will I need on the front to match and what sort of cost would they be?
So on a not for profit basis ie you want to have the best crops in the area.
How should your tractor be kitted out to provide the best conditions for your seeds.

Had the bank manager out this last week about our personal current accounts but got chatting generally and she was saying in her client portfolio there’s a growing concern about machinery prices and how she is being asked more and more about financing used machines. She said a typical scenario...
Case Puma 230 cvx row crops. How do I know if the rolling radius is correct?
I’m fairly sure they will be right but want to be certain!
I’ve asked the dealer but the are taking a while to get back to me.
Considering putting about 300ac into AB8 or AB15 stewardship grass. It requires topping to control black-grass and aid establishment in the case of AB15, and topping to keep grasses under control, smash up cuttings and allow flowers through in the case of AB8.
Not quite sure how big a mower I...
Not for competition ploughing, but ploughing at home.
David Brown 990 and David Brown C Type Plough, either a three or four furrow, both would be set to 12ins furrows.
The tractor has Power Assisted Steering Fitted, and, as the book says, 56ins is the narrowest track setting achievable with...
I was looking at a restored 1965 Massey Ferguson that is for sale. Everything seemed good, however when I let the clutch up on a hill to move from a standing start, the tractor jerked and juddered. It happened later on level ground too. The owner said the clutch had been replaced. Anyone...
looking for some advice on putting 710 tyres in furrow.
Gregoire Besson plough hrpw7 I think!
should I be looking at furrow wideners or collapsing the furrow wall etc? Heavy land so will take a lot to fill the furrow after it’s been squashed with the wide tyre!
would normally plough on...
I will be in the market for another tractor soon, whereby I would appreciate some advice on what to look for.
Budget will be around 25k Inc the dreaded vat as not vat registered.
So what would be classed as a good alrounder for general hay making tasks, mowing, towing trailer etc
Anybody else had this before?
Unfold drill and pressurise wings down. Switch to up/down and markers mode. After a few acres the pressure gauge has dropped from 200psi to 0psi.
I’ve isolated the ram seals to check they are all ok.
