Hello,

We run a 2008 MF 7475 with a Perkins 1106 motor, and from a product brochure its listed as a 1106D-E66TA.

It looks quite different to the 1006 motors in our 6270 and 399.

Just curious is the 1106 the same motor as a Cat 6.6 and therefore is essentially a Cat motor (of Cat heritage), not Perkins heritage?

Bought the machine used and would have liked to have got my first SISU powered MF but no complaints, its a great motor as are the numerous Perkins that power our 20 odd MFs.

Cat own perkins so its just rebadged and sometimes a different fuel pump.

Perkins also buy in a fiat power train or iveco engine and rebadge that CAT and or Perkins!

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
