Don’t understand logic,
Don’t buy a copy ?
where are PZ made, ?
PZ manufacture probably subbed out to cheaper source,
Recently bought new Television, Panasonic, made in Czechia,
White goods, Beko and Zanussi made in same factory in Turkey, but different price range and intended market,

That would be a Kuhn then, they're too expensive for what they are. I was quoted £3100 for a shop soiled (3 year old) 6ft PZ190, collected from the dealer in a crate. I didn't ask for a built and delivered price!

All those multitudes of green ones with white or yellow skirts will fracture and split everywhere though, the headstock geometry is not even right for hitching up to tractors over 90hp in size.

Compare a 40 year old PZ to a TALAXAMAZATOROV

I don't think the headstock geometry is any different on the Kuhn. They're all designed for 60hp tractors. The larger models may suit 100hp plus tractors but you'd have to have more money than sense to buy one of them.

I bought pz haybob 360 build quality is awful compared to the old pz200 that's been left out for prob 20+ years ,360 is rusty as **** and just about recoverable that's why I asked original question

Paint was better prior to mid 90’s, Look at an old Kuhn FC from Circa 1990, she will be dull but the paint will still be there.

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
