Creep box v vario

Looking at a few jobs where a very low forward speed is required. Currently dont have anything with creep box fitted. It would entail changing a tractor to one with a creep/vario box. Has anyone found vario to be slower than a creep box (something thats fitted in a same hurliman)

Vario would be a far more suitable transmission for low forwards speeds, creeper boxes can be a nightmare for getting a slow enough speed at pto revs.

As @Will 1594 sais with a creeper box doing feeding with a feeder, when you want to turn at the end or go to another passage you have to change gears which is not easy in the low box settings, i am looking to change my one tractor for a cvx box, but hard to find smaller tractors with them around the 100-120 hp bracket, definitely the way to go imo.

Have a old Fendt vario on my feeder and it’s perfect for it. My non techno brother drives it and he won’t go back to a conventional gearbox for the job

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.
