Yes probably don't know if it's sold or not, it would be a good machine 2 year old
Engine hours I think.
always liked these diy trailers and other implements
Heres a man thinks alot of his 188.
If the rest of the tractor was as nice as the exhaust then i might look twice but he is in lolo land. Maybe he put the decimal point in the wrong place/
That 80 loader wouldn't be the right era either.
Missing front cast rims too....
Loader a bit new relative to age of tractor , but not many would restore the loader . More likely leave it off.
Cast front rims weren't on a 188 . Standard front rims , but with bolt on weights on front wheels . Usually taken off to cure the appetite for wheel bearings that they caused .
A 188 had PAVT rear wheels , a 185 had ordinary rear wheels.
You are correct, it was those bolt on front weights that I meant when I said cast!!
What would this have been used for, would it be for drying grain, hay, spuds
For blowing about Valtras and wagons?
Silage tower perhaps
Done a search and got these
Back in the late 70s my dad and grandad had a lister barn hay drier,same principle,big fan blowing under the hay.
I used one in 1974 and it was blowing a bin of Wheat . The power source was a red David Brown and it was a bit of creative clutching to get it spinning
Still use a simplex pto one here to blow the grain. Must be over 40 years old at this stage.
The rarer S variant too....
Wonder how much an ecu would cost?
I’d say the fact their not putting it in themselves is enough to suggest it might need other work doing once that problem would be sorted.
never knew krone had a trailed forager
I heard of a Krone Conqueror which was a trailed machine with a knife bank chopping unit like a baler I think...
blockages sound like great fun with them then
Neighbours had one,when they were short staffed they would drive back to the clamp and tip while still hitched up,memories were it was pretty crap.
you,d think he could have cut the weeds around it before photographing it
It's only there since last week sure!!
