Getting to the stage where my old Bateman is due for a change. Have spotted some 2nd hand chafer sentry 5000s with 36m booms, and wondering about them.
Are they any good?
What is a pressure based system like compared to flow?
Anything to watch for?
Not having an engine, wheel motors, etc...
Hi, just wondering what are people's views on how these 2 tractors compare to each other? Having driven a few Auto command equipped T7s recently, I really like the transmission. I realise that the SWB only has a 2 range transmission compared to the 4 ranges in the LWB, is there a noticeable...

Looking at next tractor hires, have Massey 7722‘s at the moment JD very competitive just wondering on opinions of Wether the 215 price difference gives significant in field performance boost over the 195, either would be on command pro. Many thanks in advance.
The hydraulic pressure light, the one above the hare symbol is after coming on along with a beeping alert .
Have changed all the filters but no avail
The book says the symbol represents steering port , trans pressure . .
A pressure test of the packs indicates the pressure is within its range...
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...
Hello all, I'm trying to optimize our already 6 yo setup here.
We're running a JD 5100M with a M732 (year 2014) trailed sprayer controlled via the Implement Display 1100 (part no. AFH210446). We would like to get the speed taken into account to keep our application rate stable.
If someone is...
Fed up with messing about with 100l sprayer on quad, temperamental pump, sprayer on quad when you need it for something else etc.
I have a 400l ex Hardi tank and frame and am going to build a trailed sprayer mainly for lance and small boom work doing hedge bottoms, lanes, yards etc. It will have...
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...

Looking at setting-up a basic trailed sprayer rig with cm accurate GPS.
The Reach RS+ is now £520, this looks a good deal.
What's people's experiences with using it as a single unit?
And also, anyone still using this set-up with FieldBee app?
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...
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.
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.
I've just been reading the latest Farmers Weekly Magazine and saw the article 'Farm accidents claim four lives in three weeks' which I found quite shocking. I there a way to make farming safer? Or do you just accept the risks? I'd be interested in peoples thoughts....
