    I couldnt get the chains right so we've had to order some plates that bolt to the side of the front linkage with hooks for the chains, the mower lift is on a separate spool and at the moment ive just got the mower lifting but could lift the linkage as well if needed, the linkage is double acting.

    Some more shiny paint arrived this morning, not the best pics as it was getting dark when I got back from spraying.

    Well they've been using the in cab boxes for a week now and they are spot on, far easier than the usual box, they got the pro feed system setup as well, it's really good for loading the feeder and it's handy being able to change rations wirelessly.

    Yeah it was working spot on, there was a wee hiccup at the start but it turned out to be operator error, I had to alter the working width but didnt alter the offset as well.

    I tried a bit like that but we found the tedder was going better when it was following the mower so I was laying 12 rows one way and 12 the other for the tedder to follow. Out of interest what tedder and rake do you run?

    It's a claas 770 Tedder we have as well, not all the time but sometimes it does go better when following the mower, having the luxury of autotrac it doesn't matter to me how I mow it. There wasn't a huge crop of grass but to get three cuts done we need to get it done before to long, meant to be starting at the main farm the end if this week.

    Its a contractor with either a 7350 or there new 7380 that chops it. The 78 is just on a trailer this year, it used to do all the mowing but it doesnt have a front pto so was demoted this year.
