    Had good results from Autoglym Super Resin Polish on tractor panels. Use some WD40 on the front mudguards to shine them up a bit.

    Is this stuff suitable for hand polishing or are you lads using a machine?
    Do you finish off with any other product afterwards?

    Super Resin Polish is manually applied, ideally you would follow up with a wax to help seal the surface. Their Aqua Wax is handy for this

    Fitted the bare-co PTO cover today. I had to completely remove the yellow corrugated section from the rotovator side due to interference with the clutch bolts & existing cover on the rotovator but that was easy after heating it in some boiling water to soften it.

    Also modified some existing brackets last week so that the tractor can't lift the rotovator too high, doing so would damage the PTO cover & also probably break the PTO drive if in gear !

    Had next door's trimmer here yesterday for a few jobs, new flails, new flaps and the pin between arm and dipper. He lashed out on flaps from mcconnel, bet they were pricey too!! There wasn't that much wear on the pin tbf!!!:whistle:

    Some wear on that pin on what looks to be a handy enough trimmer like a PA 95 or so, were you short for 2 comp flails.

    Its a PA 500, thought you'd spot the two T flails :deyective: That's a Alviti tip, comp's hit the bolt on the drive flange so two T's on the end stops the bolt getting bent or broke!!

    Just moved it a bit yesterday, forgot what its like to use a switch box!!!:tdown:

Three of them. The mig welder is great for getting them out much better than the stick welder. All 3 of them came out easily enough. A new set of studs and manifold gasket used. It’s great when a job goes with you, which is not always the case.

    If everything went with us we'd be finished most days for dinner timer, farming is mostly a life of changing (some would say failed) plans.

    Yea the strut is is gone on the seat. The chap that drives that tractor has left all the air out. If he worked it with the seat pumped up he would be thrown all around the cab. Might fix for him some day!

    Claas tractor, two issues 4 years old just bought it with 700 hrs on the clock, so very very little done.

    1. It has 4 spool valves, i have a suspicion only one was ever used, other 3 I failed to get a hose into tonight No hydraulic pressure in spool, I think it's just down to lack of use.... any ideas apart from brute force? everything it's been on (sprayer, roller, trailer, fertiliser spinner) has only had the one ram until now so hadn't noticed.

    2. Steering brakes, pressing either of the brakes (left or right) brings on four wheel braking meaning sterring brake doesn't work very well. I've been told this is normal on the smaller Masseys? seems daft whats the point of two pedals if you cant use them to aid steering?

    Thanks

    Is there a lever on the side of the spool block . Pull it down and get someone else to push in when you release it maybe . There are two switches on our brakes one for the brake lights and the other for the four wheel drive . Never used the side brakes .

    make sure the brake switches arnt sticking an your in 4wd all the time . the 4w breaking shouldnt come on if your using the independent brakes .
    the spool valves also had a habit of sticking , the good news is the couplers arnt as expensive as they used to be

    Not only a NH problem,the manifold bolts and the turbo bolts sheared on my Fendt 720,mechanic blamed the exhaust brake,have been fine since though.

    One way with the spools is to hit the collar on the spool with a punch,this pushes it in easier than the balls trying to push,also spray wd40 in them.

    Any time i had a spool seize like that i just kept pushing the tip in with something flat like a punch and it freed out
