Our local Claas dealer often had replacement stereo's for sale on their parts counter, I think they work with the Kramp network, so it might have come through them.
 
I managed to post this in the wrong place so let me try again. Here is an old Sony radio, removed because the CD player had a fault.
It is the pull out version so it can be removed at night.
Reasonably priced to a good home.

While were on the subject of stereos, has anyone ever replaced an old push button type with something more modern, I've a couple of tractors that need new juke boxes but theres no room behind the unit to fit a standard tape deck or CD type.

I fitted a couple of these back when they were only £20 and no postage, must be 2 years ago and both going well with good bluetooth connection but not great for answering phones but have managed it. Im lazy and speakers were iffy in a tractor, this just need constant power, key power, earth and aerial.

Thinking about it, I had a troublesome one this year.
There are 4 bolts on a slot that you can adjust the clamping thing with. Basically the linkage wasn't going over centre to lock. I extended the slots another 1/2" and it worked perfect

Just ordered 14cube at £86.50 c40.east Yorkshire

i've put one of these in my digger, stuck the remote to the window i dont even have to turn round to touch radio
I’ve got two of the same here, can’t go wrong for a tenner, never used the remote but the kids like the blue tooth for playing the music off there phones, one in a 2650 and other in 3cx. Very clear and go off with the key unlike the originals, so no more flat batteries. Also have a clock on them and a plug thing so I can charge my phone

I looked at a few of them but never got around to ordering one. Need something in the digger and there’s bugger all room behind for a normal one.

If you don’t need tape or cd mechs then the round gauge style ones are easy to fit come in a variety of prices for. £20-£200 take your choice based on reviews etc but 2” deep easy to wire and with a hole saw can make a tidy install even where there was no factory fit unit

Very easy to fit , it came with two different adapters, so it connected straight to the existing plugs, it’s controls are easy to use and it goes loud enough to be heard in an older vehicle. I will be fitting 3 more when I’ve got time as I like to charge phone off it and my old machinery doesn’t have usb or even a fag lighter. Wasn’t expecting great things but was pleasantly surprised

I find the cheapo's horrible to use. You can buy a low range pioneer for €50 if you look hard enough, much better buy. If your tractor doesn't have the proper euro plugs you need a piece of loom though.
