Sure they would sell @Cab-over Pete a couple. 10t lift and would carry 55 TFF members to the Claas factory. Not sure of the mpg but 315 kph top speed. Slight problem of $38 million for a new one. Maybe second hand is the way to go. :giggle:

You never know....they might even hire him one!

It's worth requesting a demo at least.....! (y)
 
what do you think you could get per hour at 2 ton per acre tipped in the field to be spread on stubble, loading and spreading yourself ?
40-45 t per hour maybe?

That’s not going to happen round here any time though!!

Still not the output of the Big A.

Best ever with that was 60t in 60 minutes. Another day I did 460t and ran out of lime. I was spreading at 4.30 am and home for tea with the kids. Went back the next day for the last 80t so could have done the 540 all in one day. Again though, once in a blue moon round here.

that's more like the output I thought you could get with that kit, roughly twice what we use to do at best
why is the big A faster ?
