    Zetor 7211 cab heater?

    I recently fitted a new cab heater fan in my zetor 7211. The fan is working fine but blowing cold air. No heat at all. I’m unsure what to diagnose or look for. Any suggestions? I know many will maybe say coolant.

    Just been looking at Valtra's A series and G series and can't but help notice that there is significant similarities to Masseys 4700 series and the new 5S and it got me thinking about the structure of AGCO while I assume they will go the same way as CNH, SDF and Argo at some point it seems...

    Telehandler vs tractor for daily chores ?

    Power harrow pto speed and forward speed

    Most combi drills come with a hydraulic fan nowadays so no need to run the power harrow full pelt to run fan. Running the power harrow at a slower speed of say 600 (if conditions allow) would require more power or would be easier to drive allowing a faster forward speed?

    I need to fit some new tyres onto my MF390T. Been given the options of the BKT in either Radial or Cross Ply. The radial option is quite a bit more and I'm just wondering what the benefits of a radial over cross Ply tyre would be. The tractor does very little work each year ( around 80 hours)...

    New old gearboxes

    Just flicking through a John Deere 6030 tractor brochure from 2011. They were still offering 12/4 SyncroPlus gearbox for this range. That's a fully manual box, no clutchless shuttle or splitter. Has anyone here bought or used one? I know these type of boxes are still offered in other countries...
