Massey Ferguson 6170
Massey Ferguson 6170 spreading slurry,in need of a wash due
to the windy conditions over the last two weeks
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
why don't you just use a tank when you aren't injecting
anyway what's the use of this system then??
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
well firstly for speed,this system can spread around 25,000
gallons per hour and also in this part of the UK alot of the
land is too wet for a heavy tanker in the winter.Not much
injecting is done around here
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
the cord is a great way of shifting slurry fast without
leaving fields in a mess
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
Our contractor has a rolls royce engine on the pump!!
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
what sort of pipe does he use?we pump down 4 inch pipe but
i've heard people use bigger pipe!doesn't it use alot of
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
Our contractor uses 8 inch flexi pipe, sometimes the
conectors between 2 pipes explodes with all the power from
the rolls royce and it sprays all over the place and the
guy on the spray plates needs to radio the guy watching the
pump to say nothing is coming out his end!! How do you get
the pipes across the road? we use ramps with the pipe
underneath. but some lift it up with a telescopic!! It uses
less fuel than tanker because it is "constant work" not
filling tanker, moving tanker, emptying tanker all day.
just constant spray!
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
shit!! I mean 6 inch pipe!!!! not f***ing 8 inch!!
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
yes we have road ramps and CB radio in the cabs so im always
in contact with the pump man.Why does he need so much horse
power?we have a valtra T150 on our bauer pump and its on top
of the job and before the valtra we used a deutz agrotron
120 which managed
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
This is how we do that here ;-).
16.5m wide MF 7495 on v nice tires running on 0.4b Doesnt
fuck up the land at all. Mostly used in wheat, barley etc..
The hose here is 5inch transport and then 4 inch halfway
down becouse its more flexible. Hose over the road is here
also done by JCB teleporter.
On the pump is a 215hp MF 8260.

Do you have pic's from the 500hp Roll's?
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
He has 1 mile of pipe!!!! pumping slurry through that much
pipe needs a lot of power. if you use tiny little pump
there is no pressure when it arrives at the field unless
you use booster pumps. You can follow the pipe along the
road for a long time!! I think its more of a "look at my
pump" kind of thing!! dont think he acctually needs
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
We have 2000 metre's of pipe and sometimes use a booster
pump if we are going full length or alot of up hill,mostly
4inch and some 4.5.My 6170 has been replaced with a 6480
nice.I do have pictures but my computer won't let me post
anymore :-( I'm a massey man at heart so i loved the picture
or the 7400 series

We are thinking of going into slurry injection one day,does
anyone have any experience of this?
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
We have a little bit more then 1 mile of hose running
maximum, the booster pump can handle. Mostly only half a
mile or .75 is out. The MF on the pic is an 7495 btw, has a
easy job as it need 130hp or so and has 180.

Law in Holland says you must inject slurry so we do, your
tractor atleast doesnt get so dirty and the ammonia doesnt
get in the air so it is better for the invoirement after
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
how deep do you inject slurry?
does the 16.5m injector take much dragging?
when we splash plate it makes a right mess of the tractor
but at least we can drive across the pipe as we spread :-)
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
immm himmmmm intresting..... They are onabout bringing in a
law in the u.k that u can only inject slurry in winter and
cannot spread it i think it may even already have been
passed. and now the goverment is given 40%grants for builing
new slurry tanks to hold it over the winter we building 2
mayby a third... dont know?
Re: Massey Ferguson 6170
well doesn't the ground have to be dry for injection?
