Bit of an update on the deutz if anyone's interested. The tractor was bought with a few small problems mainly cosmetic. one of the problems was an oil leak on the side of the gearbox coming from the gasket between the valve block that controls the powershift gears and the gearbox. This seems to be a bit of a common problem our 6160.4 also did it and also know of a McCormick with the same transmission that has just done the same.

Back wheel off and had to remove the steering oil filter and a few other pipes and wires etc.

Not great photos but you can see the breaks in the bottom part of the gasket although some of them might have been torn when I took it out.

Was a bit fiddly getting it back in with the gasket on, not a lot if room to work in there. Took a couple attempts, ended up cutting some M8 threaded rod and screwing them into the gearbox to act as guides, then once I got the block held with the proper bolts unscrewed the threaded rods .

Also while the wheel was off took the airline and blew the top of the gearbox clean, there was a lot of stuff came off it, tractor must have been working on heavy clay ground because the earth that was coming off was like concrete and was baked on pretty well :facepalm: also took off guards under the fuel tank and round the battery and gave everything a good blew out. Also had the wheel off the other side and had to weld up the bracket that holds one of the air tanks on.

Scrubbed down and painted both spacer rings while they were off too as they were orange with rust :facepalm:

One of the mirrors was broken and one had been replaced by one from a M series, so thought I'd try these duel view mirrors that had been spoken about on another thread , wasn't sure for a start but after a bit of use really like them 👍👍

Not done a lot with the tractor really , bit of dump trailer work and a bit of ploughing mostly, but so far really liking it, C shift armrest is really nice to use although have to be careful not to press the wrong buttons :facepalm::ROFLMAO:. There's a lot more power over the 620, always thought it was quite good but this is a much smoother power, and picks up better and quicker.

still a few other bits to tidy up and sort out but it's a working progress.

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...
