Aircon or Not

Can't understand people who don't like aircon, I issue more staff bollockings over aircon than anything else, I leave it on auto mode and just adjust the temperature to suit the day. Windows always demisted, everything comfortable, blower adjusts to suit requirements. When I get in a vehicle and find it either turned off or played around with and fan spinning on max despite being at set temp I do ask why it has been fiddled with. Even worse aircon off and windows open.

I feel a lot healthier doing a day on an open station/ROPS tractor than I do spending a day in an airconned cab.

But living in a cab without aircon? I'd rather be dead.
 
I don't know how anyone could drive a machine without it. I was once driving a machine when the aircon stopped (wire under seat went) and within minutes the interior was hot and sticky as hell. I persisted to get the job done and stayed going another 30 minutes by which point I was covered in sweat and nearly dopey from heat exhaustion.

Fitting a front windscreen and wiper is the best thing I ever did to my ROPS tractor.

But yeah, nothing keeps the cold out like a cab.
 
People Don't know how to use it.... problem number 1..... Mine are always on... Hot or cold it does it job.

If it were my Machine and just me using... Yes Aircon would be specc'd

My Machine and someone else using ... Yes Aircon would be specc'd

If someone can't use it correctly.... No Monkeys Given,

With award presentations by Tom Bradshaw, Vice President of NFU, 24 farms took home the evening’s top awards for highest yield and highest potential yield achieved for wheat, winter and spring barley, oats, and oilseed. The 2021 winners came from all corners of the UK, as well as from as far afield as Finland and New Zealand.
