Can't see the benefit of it if the AC is working. I never open the windows, only doors when i get in and out. 😅
Unfortunately for me, the A/C system in this particular machine has decided it doesn't want to be A/C anymore. The pump's seized, the belt's missing, the fans are noisy/not functional, the filters are clogged.

These Deutz cabs are like glass houses, the front window is the only thing stopping me from becoming a Sunday roast.

Previous to my post few weeks back this machine is working a treat, gave a little paint spruce up before covering it in sh#t. Leaving no stripy bits compared to the west it replaced :)

Why is black the new thing, what's the thinking behind it?
Contractor we use had a couple of black case and I'm pretty sure there's a black Deere john ploughing next door.
I agree, I appreciate most vehicles have air conditioning, but I thought black is the worst colour for reflecting heat. In the past on a very hot day I have touched the bonnet of a white car and a black car next to it , the white bonnet was surprisingly cooler than the black one, and “ I did that when they had both been parked for a few hrs so engines in both vehicles must have been cool” ;)

It does look cool but as someone who’s into paintwork and detailing I can’t think of anything worse than keeping a black car free of marks and swirls, let alone a tractor that spends its life getting muddy and dusty. I bet some of them up close on a sunny day look absolutely scuffed to death.

Picked this topper up this afternoon, managed to get a good deal as they said it was used but think it had just been sat in another dealers yard.

Want to tidy up some margins that have brome in them before it starts creeping into the field!

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...
