Where in the world is this Scandinavia somewhere?
Yes.

Have another one also with 9000 hrs on it.
I like the 800/65R32 rear tires that I put into it 5 years ago. Lifting beet 1 bar on both the tractor rear and the 3 row Thyregod lifter with 1000/50R25.

Lighter field work I go down to 0,6 bar.

EZ-Steer on RTK keeps it well on track and it it still not stepping on the next unlifted row.

Video is from last year.

Retrofit assisted steering has really helped to get more out of my oldies...

What make is the beet harvester?
I don’t know anything about beet but it looks a good machine.
Will a sugar beet harvester harvest fodder beet without any modifications/ adjustments?

Thyregod. Made in Denmark. I do not know if they make them anymore as 6 row self propelled harvesters have taken the market.
Our harvester is from yr. 2000.

No modifications needed for fodder beet harvest.
But they have also made a harvester that took both the leafs and the roots:

Soon 60,
Many thanks for the info and video.
Just Googled Thyregod and they still make them.
Dread to think of the price of one but look as if they may have a place for a contractor in livestock areas of Uk where fodder beet is grown, with narrow roads as the narrower TIM 11 machine sounds as if it would be ideal, the economics may not be so ideal!!!!

Are the 5110s some special continental things? I always thought a 5610 wasn’t exactly supposed to feel powerful compared to a 46 so what was the reason for a 5110? Never seen one before anyway

yeah they were a derated 5610. Different timing on the pump / no assister ram - you could get them in the UK. The 4110 sold quite abit in the UK.

When i first came to Kenya the farm i was on had a 5110 it really wasn’t a good tractor very underpowered especially at an altitude of 8000 feet. I also have had a 5610 which again seemed to be numb. I couldn’t see the point of having a 6610 sized tractor with a lower powe rating. I had a 6610 which was great but best of all was a 6410 SQ that was a special tractor.

Interesting. I thought there was also complaints about the 6610 being pretty average hence the introduction of the 64 and 68 as replacements with the generation 3. I understood these went better but never driven any to know.

We had a Ford 6610 to replace an International 634 , that was a big mistake as the 6610 seemed gutless compared to the 634 it replaced. Ok the cab was nice compared to the Lambourn cab on the 634.
Oh those were the days when dad could afford to write a cheque out for a new tractor, and we were tenant farmers ,oh what has gone wrong :scratchhead: :scratchhead:

I don’t know i think it’s personal persception. When you were driving a safety cabbed 5000 you knew when it was working hard.As the cabs got better i think because you couldn’t hear or feel the tractor working then people thought they were weaker than the previous tractor.
