    Can a Kunh/Accord one pass drill be run at 1000rpm? I know the Harrow can be used at 1000rpm but should the drill not be at 540?? Thanks in advance.

    Somerset all the time now ... As I'm a civvie
    I'm fairly sure ours is run on a 1000, we had the tractor end of the PTO shaft changed to a 540 yoke, as after a "full Autumn " season drilling the 21 spline job would jam it's self of the shaft,, it used to a right barsteward to get off,

    This left our yard for the final time this week. Bought new in March 1998 for £16k punts including Vat. With 23 seasons working an average of 500 acres per year (our own and some hire work) it has been a loyal servant. Got a nice little trade-in price too.
    Given what goes on around our yard it takes a serious machine to make it out alive after 20+ years. These are built to last.

    Perry's put enough stickers on it anyway!

    Just goes to show if you mind something it will always serve you well and you could be surprised when its traded in when its "vintage".
