Dealer wasn't happy to sell me 612 as he said 702 was better built.
Also I think 612 is not adjustable width wise.
Yes funny i have heard the same alrite and yes you are right 612c isnt adjustable..but i can get a demo 612c in my local dealers for 11k a new 702 is 17k thats all i was thinking i only rake 140acres a year of my own grass

Thanks for the heads up.

Always do a comparison when buying equipment as running costs come into the equation here.

That's total rubbish. Neighbour has 612C and we bale about 300 round silage/haylage for him every year, not single issue with McHale round baler.
It's total rubbish is it? Just my opinion and it was ok in heavy crops but not light ones.

Speak as you find but after using one, I made sure that the rake I bought was adjustable width, like most are.
 

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
