It's definitely the drive shaft carrier rattling on the pins that is making the noise. They all do it eventually.
Yea, seems to be. Spoke with a mate today who looked at mine And he had the same problem previously with his old Renault which had the same axle.

Why do manufacturers continue to fit this axle the amount of bother they give?

Was looking at Mcormick at Highland show and it had it fitted and immediately put me off it. Axle was giving bother years ago on Renaults.

After having run the 2008 version, with grease nipples and adjustable nuts, of this front axle for over 7000 hours I would choose it over any front axle that I have driven since... I have demoed a handful of tractors from CNH and Agco and I believe they all would have had better comfort with the Carraro front axle.

It's all very well being comfortable but at what expense?

Fine if you drive it for someone else and don't have to pay repair bills I suppose.

Got the same axle on our NH 7550 , had a demo 7.235 and the ride is like chalk and cheese I tested it out on a nice and bumpy road (plenty of them around here !! ) took mine at 50 k and not to bad took the 7.235 and couldn't stay in the seat ! , if it costs a few quid to maintain so be it .
Done 5k hrs not touched it yet but think it could soon be adjusted .
 

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
