Weaving GD user thread

No you can’t. It’s a real problem. The red crosses are simply the drill indicating that it’s not seeding which is what happens on the headlands anyway. They need to get it sorted.
Hi, This is why i think it is something to do with the top depth switch. Either the rams have retracted letting the switch go to neutral, (which might be your valve issues doing that)??? or somehow the switch has gone to neutral by itself.

Apparently there's a sensor in the motor and one on the shaft to sense if the drive has broken between the motor and the metering mechanism, but if both aren't turning and you are travelling with it in the ground in work, there's no alarm for that eventuality unless you spot the red crosses have suddenly come on which i never seen as they are so small. I think we are going to have to install a stand alone sensor to monitor the metering mechanism, trouble is the alarm will go off when the mechanism stops when lifting out of work! It only does it a few times a year but its a worry as some time in the future it may do it 5 times a day.

It’s part of the Rds box to do with the micro switch

I have my drill with a magnet on the lever in the cab which was good with the magnum but not so good on the new Holland t7

the best system would be gps auto on /off as the sprayer and Fert spreader have but need another unlock

we do now have a camera on the metering device

i have had the metering device jam with a bolt which must have come from the seed plant and a stone on home saved beans

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
