Cheers folks. I'll give it a whirl when i get a spare second.
The Fergies do make good bases for mobile set-ups though, due to metal cab roofs still. better than having to bolt steel plates to the roof like i have. :roll:

Think the dyna 6's have had similar probs to that, just daft electric problems, :? but the 6485s have been a tad more serious. one of them is on its 3rd gearbox and back end, and the others had 2 management computers, and can't decided whether to go forwards or reverse. :shock: They make good weight blocks to put on the front of my super dexta tho. lol. :lol:

I had a brief experince of driving a 6480 dyna-6 last weekend as part of a young farmers event. not the kind of tractor you can hop on and drive first time. although i imagine days spent forage harvesting or ploughing could be very enjoyable aboard it.

Personally i am loyal to tracors that have the word FORD on the bonnet.

Was in my local NH dealers in the summer for mower parts and they quoted a customer who had a blue tractor 3 weeks for repairs :o

Quickest my Massey dealer has been is 2 hours, slowest is 2 days :wink:

I'm still getting annoyed of the cab suspension compressor on my 6455 cutting out my CB when it kicks in, does anyone have any ideas how to supress it??
