I’d forgotten how good they were/are.
Bloody uncomfortable down a bumpy track, but a good old workhorse, nonetheless.
I bet the New ones aren’t as reliable. I have a friend who has one and it certainly isn’t. But he is a dairy farmer!
Sold ours last September with over 200000 miles on it, getting expensive to put it through mot we thought by the end, rear tub rotten trough, bushes, and so on, but chassis like new on it. It's still going strong though, the bloke who bought it put an mot on it.

Helps balance it out. Being 6row there is 2 out one side of the tractor and 1 row the other side. It can nose dive a bit on that side. I'll put up some more pics.
That hoehas been converted to 3point linkage to go on the front of my tractor.

Is yours an after market 40k kit like mine? My 885 is actually 2wd under the silly wheels so she moves now on the big wheels.

Innovation and tech in action at Cereals LIVE


There is nothing quite like seeing tech in action to understand how it works and how it can be beneficial on farm, which is why Cereals LIVE will be putting demos right at growers’ fingertips.

From state-of-the-art robotics, to autonomous tractors and electronic weeding, Cereals LIVE will have it all available in video demonstrations in the brand new Innovation and Tech Demo ring, says event director, Alli McEntyre. “It’s a brave new world for farming, with innovation driving sustainability and efficiency. Being able to see the most cutting-edge technology in action will give farmers an insight into where their businesses could be headed very soon.”

So what will growers be...
