Automatic stabilisers vs sway blocks John deere 8r

Does anyone here have experience with automatic stabilisers on John Deere 8r tractors? Can they handle doing heavy tillage? Or am I better to go with sway blocks? Will be pulling a 9 leg subsoiler 40-50cm deep in heavy ground and also some power harrow bed forming work. Thanks

I’d be asking if they’re worth the extra money unless your putting a plough on the back?

Remember you still need to manually set them so no real time saving over sway blocks and for cultivation work they would spend most of their life in the fixed position anyway.

Is it possible to set the sway blocks so link arms are tight and centred for rtk powerharrow bed forming work?

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
