And we have a John Deere but i don't want to talk about it. :oops:
Yeah 8560 are pritty good. 60series were just an more tarted up version from the 40series. 1995 7840? thats the ford model yeah? haha yeah never talk about them deeres!

i'm fairly sure its somehow fastened to the flashing light bracket,it seems a good set up although i just have a sirio ml 145 on the top of my fergie and i think i just get out as well,how do you like the fendt to drive?and do you think the vario saves much fuel?

I'll look in to mountin on the flasher braket then. :wink: Just before i got the 716 to try i drove one of my mates JD 6910 autopower and thought it was awsome, then i got on the 716 and hated it, but after bout 2 days when i'd got used to it i loved it. Really good on juice, can do bout 3 days de-stoning on a tank (300l). good on the road aswell, 53.2 kmh at 1500 revs!!!!!!! 8)

Did you not think of a vario massey?exactly the same back end and 20k cheaper!

Has anyone out there done much chopping yet? We got one farm done back when the weather was good and half way thru another but the weather isn't really helping much at the moment
