Wheres everyone gone..........

Its been very quiet on this forum for too long now. I know ive not been on, but neither has anyone else.

Fresh set up.

I've recently got a fendt 724 and decided that I am off to treat my self to a new set up rather than disturb the set up in my old tractor. Anyone out there got a set up in one of these that works very well? I am president CB through and through so that would be my first choice.
Cheers.

Re: Fitting a CB in a JD6830p.

If theres a gap next to the radio it cant have electric mirrors, but there is still the wiring for them behind the radio in the cab harness. if you can find the loose plug ends, then stick a fuse in the gap for electric mirrors in the fuse box, bobs your uncle. Thats what mates of mine have done bef...

Baler box interference.......

All seem quite in this section at the mo, but could do to pick some brains anyhow.
I've just got a Welger 435 Master round baler, with the all singing and dancing control box, but it seems to play havoc wit my Rig, like 5 - 7 pound of noise.
Any ideas????

if you want a good all-round tyre, i don't think you can beat BFG All terrain. There's cheaper ones about but you pay for what you get. i've got over-sized ones on my freelander, plus they look mint. :roll:
