    Massey 87 vs 8S

    Being that you can't get an 8s Vario I've been looking at an 8727. They look a big old lump but only 0.05cm longer wheelbase are they practicable as an all rounder or they a big tillage lump only! Main jobs be 3m Sumo, 5m Carrier, 5m Drill and 4000L 36m trailed sprayer in early spring before row...

    John Deere trailed sprayer crabbing on slopes

    Using a John Deere 952i trailed sprayer at work and whilst it pulls in line on flattish ground or going parallel with the slope direction (it gets calibrated) it has a tendency to pull to one side when crossing slopes running out of the tramline by about 4-6 inches. Any ideas if there is some...

    Tractor hours

    How many hours is reasonable for a second hand tractor? I understand some is more then others but my understanding is limited to distance on cars, not hours on tractors unfortunately. Thanks.

    The on-going up hill battle that is agriculture.....

    It would appear iam not alone in having difficultly getting and keeping decent staff? Is it a nation wide issue or more regional? Wheres the best place to find the unicorns that maybe out there? Also, machinery price increases are a constant issue to us. I know theres nothing we can appear to...

    Free flow return.

    I have a trailed sprayer needing a constant hyd flow to operate the booms. The two pipes are plugged into the standard couplings on the tractor. No problem until I changed the tractor to another. I find the return pipe has popped out a couple of times. What's the problem. Worn coupling? Too...

    Which mounted sprayer

    Thinking of swapping our Amazone 28meter 2000L mounted sprayer. Been a good sprayer but only thing that lets it down is the time it takes to fold/unfold. Anyone running a landquip or kuhn. And other make with a tidy folding boom worth looking at.

    36m back to 24m

    Who’s done this? We love the extra output 36m offered over 24m and less wheelings etc. But the negatives - trailed machine: 1. uneven liquid fert application as it takes longer to get the required rate out of the booms due to the extra length and size of the pipe work (400l pump) so all our...

    Operator’s manual for Chafer T2000?

    Hi all, Can anyone point me in the direction of an operator’s manual for my recently acquired Chafer T2000 trailed sprayer? It’s from 1993 but has been really well looked after. I’d like to try to keep it in the same nick. I’m also trying to figure out the most appropriate size of row crop...

    GMR sprayers

    Anybody running a GMR trailed sprayer? Had a look at one and was impressed with paintwork and solidity if that’s a word. What are they like to use? Seem fairly cheap second hand.

    What £30k tractor?

    To pull a 4000 litre trailed sprayer (32m boom) as its main job (liquid fert as well) mostly flat land no root crops. It’ll also cart corn with 15t trailers, roll with 12m rolls and run a 4m combi drill on rare occasions. Edit - it’ll need a big oil pump as the sprayer runs off the free flow...

    Sprayer boom widths

    We’ve been using a trailed 36m sprayer running on 650’s all year round (tractor also on 650’s). We are thinking of selling the sprayer as it’s now 10 years old. Looking around newish trailed machines have shot up in price making decent used SP’s look attractive again but they all seem to be 24m...
