Do you reckon you'll ever upgrade your 8070s?....to something like a couple of TF78s?....high output machines - if you don't bother too much about the straw & people seem to regard them as reliable.

Hi Richard,if your looking in i,m finally getting a TF78,were almost finished the wheat
only 60 acres left,will try and get demo on last bit to try it out ready for next year,
it wont cost much to change as these 8070,s are well sought after :thumbup: hows

Hiya Roly,

I gather from your post on BFF that you're in the market for a TF78. Reckon you'll be delighted with the performance from one of them and the cab will be a nice place to spend the harvest time.

This firm have a good reputation for service & back-up.........

Not sure about these fellas, but they always seem to have a fair collection on offer......

Harvest is going well down here, mind you we're not really large scale producers.....anyway brother finished the winter barley last Monday morning just before the rain came (again). We haven't got a drier so have to wait till its 15% before starting, mind with the 12ft header we can afford to be selective on the days we cut.....add another '0' to the acreage and for sure we'd need a different policy.
Brother is in the process of putting up a new grain store, need it in order to get the farm-assurance stamps.....bit of a caper as far as i can see.....he was only now saying they (the white-collar brigade) were insisting he bought a 1 metre long grain probe for measuring the temp of grain in the heap.....just how the h3ll they used to manage I really don't know.

Now brother just bought himself this new (to him) 5130 w/ turbo, Old man reckons the place is getting like a dealership yard and time to have a bit of a cull........ so he's giving it a good work-out now with the plough & one-pass cultivator - so don't reckon I'll get much chance to do ploughing this year, there's quite a lot of workshop jobs left to do before I go back to work at the end of the month, brother got the stubble turnips in on Friday afternoon & now there's some grass-seeds to do soon.

Anyway, there's some spring barley left to cut, he tested it on Friday evening & it still wasn't quite dry enough (for us). The forecast for the week is not good. I've been at a local vintage rally for the last 2 days with the D4 & the County 1004, Saturday afternoon the heavens opened up and we got drenched!....today wasn't a bad day, good crowd of people showed up. One bloke down here on holiday was looking round the crawler and was telling me about his 'old days' driving a D6C & Onions scraper, heard some tales from other folks about their old Cat driving days......it's not until they see this stuff that it sparks the total recall about the "good old days driving machines that never seemed to break down"

Anyway here's some harvesting pics

Hello Richard, thanks for the photos. & info. about how the harvest is going.

Very good to see some "real" combining. Around me if you haven't got a 30ft header and doing about 140 acres a day you're not in contention. :dizzy: :dizzy: :dizzy:

Agree with your comments about the shows. I have learnt all sorts of stuff when I've been at shows. Not just the drivers who used the kit in anger but the spanner men who kept them going. "Have you ever had so and so give up the ghost on you ?" "You need to watch that" This is priceless info. and no amount of money can buy it.

Keep up the good work - David. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Great harvesting photos there Roly & Richard :thumb:

Seen a few combines at work last couple of weekends around the country but always in the distance so no photos :(

Fields nearest me were spring sown so not ready yet (still greenish tint to it) and the winter corn up the road was done when i was away, so missed that.

Hi Pete, its a Powershift version with a TB Turbo - plenty of poke, oddly enough its 30km/h (at the moment) and seems like its origin is from Southampton area.....so far it runs good.....the County is getting a holiday now, no more ploughing or round baling to do

Morning Richard,

Nothing wrong with the TM. All I need is a place to buy so that I can "marry up" the TM and the DP1 that I bought. :D :D :D

Martyn

Yes Martyn, I helped on the home farm and the uncle had a flock of 130 ewes, manys a time I was roped into helping him wth them- discontented devils would be the understatement of the year more like a "shower of whores bastards". They're one part of farming I dont miss!!!
Richard, thanks for the photos, interesting your comment about the County gearchange, I have driven a lot of modern tractors but I reckon a well used 5or 7000 with the crashbox is as easy to drive.
