Tanco mower thoughts?

I’ve come across this before CTF likes 12m

the challenge I see is for the fickle market we seem to be supplying here. I want to be able to cut 12 meter passes and leave the crop in 2 6 meter swaths as narrow as possible rows with both rows close together so that I can pull both rows together easily for baling.

I have a 3.6 meter krone front mower coming which I’ll run with the 4 meter nh rear mower but I really want a grouper on the rear mower but no one here knows what I’m talking about.

That’s what rakes are for.

No, many people aren't that keen on a big fat kid who hasn't grown up and does his best to fill young boys heads full of sh1te.
But you have to give it to him, he basically was one of the first to create 'tractor porn', has succeeded in creating a global brand from basically nothing and gives his public what they want. At the end of the day it is just a large merchandising business and believe me it is run as a business, have spent time in his company and his phone pings when internet sales dip below a set point so they then put a post on facebook or youtube to rekindle the fire. Content is sitting queued up ready to go all the time and someone monitoring facebook posts 24/7 to delete unsuitable or rude posts to ensure its child friendly. Yes it may be a lot of sh!te but reality is it is by far one of the safest things your child could get into on the internet. If on a Sunday afternoon you hear Donkeys voice on your ten year olds ipad you know they aren't watching someone self harm or a gifted oriental lady firing ping pong balls into the crowd :oops:

Oh yes, my hats off to them for the business they have come up with.

But they have a generation of young lads heads filled with nonsense, which young lads are good enough at without any encouragement.
What colour of tanker looks best on a Fendt 724 or which 30 grand compactor trailer is best isn't the kind of thing most young fellas need to think are relevant

Yes they basicly paint this picture of u can just buy this that and the other just cause u think its a good job which for lots of farms isnt a realistic. Plus the way he laughs after every sentence i find annoyin and feels fake so i choose to not really watch them unless its a video on somethin that im interested in but usually its not that informative anyway
