I’m looking to upgrade a Kuhn 1131 and noticed @Longneck axis doesn’t have the telemat border limiter. How accurate are these spreaders for keeping the fertiliser inside the field ?
Very accurate you slow the outside disc down to do endrigs so you can just play with disc speed to get it where you want it. Or you used to be able to play with disc speed

How have they made the breakaway system work with the push back ram there? I'm thinking of doing something similar to my Disco, it's far too high in transport position but I see it has a pivoting headstock which would allow it to be pushed back. Don't know about the driveshaft though.

Not sure if those couple of pics are of any help? I can get more if you'd like a closer look? I would say you can go back as far as the conventional break back goes. It doesn't help to alter the height, just pushes it further back, but is within the edge of the tractor now. If I took the pic at the highest point the mower is barely any higher than the cab, but 8ft is our limit with it folded up the side at 90 degrees.

Thanks, that helps a lot.

Yeah, probably should have posted it in the bodge it thread but never thought it worthy enough! Space is an issue for us so thought up this ingenious way to park 2 or possibly 3 things in the same place! Haven't got round to 'hanging' the squeeze off it yet though. It's surprisingly very stable!
