It was them red un's
Or was it them white and brown un's
Or was it them white and orange un's
Or was it them red un's wi blue wheels
Gosh not even db could decide on a color the disguse them as something else to try and boost sales
It was that bloody stopper idea that let them down straight away and the lever setup that closely resembled a field of willow

:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::p:p:p

most of the colours, right up to 1965, were actually based on the clothing worn by the north riding hunt

hunting pink, being the red jacket, the primrose yellow being the neckerchief

french blue was chosen by David Brown junior, as it was felt the new 900 needed to stand out from the old old pure hunting pink models

the very first VAK1 prototypes has silver wheel centers and rims, 30 years before MF chose that same idea for the wheels on the 100 series

The brown and white came about as the american dealers wanted a tractor that didnt look like an IH

what like the bloke on here who has sent his TM head into mcmurray for a rebuild even though it hadnt dropped a valve yet...........

see my point yet

I think the point of sending my cylinder head to McMurray because it hasn't dropped a valve was a wise decision, as they are recommended to be done at 8k hours.

Hardly much point waiting to it drops a valve and then sending it away. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

And at £400 I now have peace of mind and a completely bullet proof tractor for another 8k hours.

Nobody ever knows when a DB will snap a crank tho. Ticking time bomb comes to mind [emoji41]

Don't worry about it you don't have one so there's no chance at all of it happening to you:)

You concentrate on how to change that lightbulb without a 1st world Telehandler(y)

Best idea would be to get the old cross cut out and saw the pole down change the bulb and then dig a new hole and put it back up ;):rolleyes:
Anyone else surprised that electric light has reached the mothership ?:whistle:

It's called preventive maintenance John, I'm a big believer in it it's the secret to running older gear reliably, spot problems or potential protearly and fix them when your in quiet times of year etc, if he waited for it to drop a valve it would cost a lot more than doing the head now

But, if you believed a quarter of whats wrote on here...it shouldnt even need doing because they dont drop valves

apparently:whistle:

Look at that @John 1594 , he clearly says they are the best engine on market and they do drop valves but 10 thousand hours before they would do it, doesn't mean they will do it bang on 10,000, some may never do it. When your 1594 gets to 10,000 trouble free let us know, the diff only could last 4750 hours. Yes you tried to blame it on your driving but you said that teeth had been broke off before you went subsoiling, it may have finished it off but it must of been soft to start with of teeth had came off in only 4750 hours. Whenever you fixed the 1594 did you not take precautions when you fixed it? Like did you not consider taking the hydrashift box to Barclay Williams for a once over as it was something you didn't want to have to take out again?
A very good friend of mine runs JD, when they reach 10,000 hours as a precaution he does the Head and Powerquad, they may never go but he says it cheaper to prevent it rather than fix it when it's fecked. One of them he done the head and powerquad and a few hundered hours later she burnt to a crisp with an electrical fault.
Everything breaks down and has faults, whether it be porous Fords, broken cranks in DB, maxxumm diffs etc just stop goin over and over the same points and trying to make out you know everything and that you are always right. You have some good ideas and run your business well but don't preach unto everyone how good DB are and that we should all run one.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

court-640x360.jpg
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.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
