davey52 293754 307 massey ferguson 6480 either
massey ferguson 6480
this is a massey ferguson 6480 and it is only a year old it
belongs to a local farmer it is used for all the jobs and
there is only 2 people that like to drive it
Re: massey ferguson 6480
al the other people don't like to drive it?
it must be a verry bad tractor then:-P
Re: massey ferguson 6480
no the othe 2 dont like it because it is complicated to
drive but they are 55 and 61 so it is complicated to them
Re: massey ferguson 6480
I am only 49 so it all seems so simple to me;-)

Why not say it as it is? The two older guys are just too
dense, thick, of low IQ, are lacking in basic brainpower and
should have been castrated before they began breeding more
of the same. Perhaps I should put this more plainly? :-P
Re: massey ferguson 6480
I dont think its that they cant drive it, its because they
dont want to drive it!! show them the castrating pliers
and they would soon be driving it!!! HUW, were will you be
when you are 61???:-D Will you let me castrate you in 20
years time!! I think not!! I have a pair of castrating
pliers, so if your interested huw? give me a ring;-D (I
have 2 sizes one for bulls and one for lambs):-D:-D
Re: massey ferguson 6480
the 6400 isn't difficult to drive I thing:-\
Re: massey ferguson 6480
Zetormatic, let's make one thing clear; you will NOT need
the lamb rings


:-P :-P
Re: massey ferguson 6480
hi boys they say u can't teach an old dog new tricks but my
grandad is 75 and just as fit as a 25 year old and he drives
TM's JD's and hes even lifted silage with my mate 7490 with
a MX 6 i hope im just as good as him when im 75 :-)
Re: massey ferguson 6480
Ok huw! see you in 21 years time:-D
Re: massey ferguson 6480
I am rubish at mathematics! I mean 11 years time! then you
will be 60 years old i think Huw? You must be one of the
oldest guys on farmphoto!!
Re: massey ferguson 6480
I am only as old as the women I feel ;-)

Anyhow, with age comes much wisdom :-)

And yes, I have trouble explaining the finer intricacies of
the 7490's systems to much younger men :-\ This has lead
me to the conclusion that either a whole lot of people are
really stupid and of poor intellect or that tractors are
just getting too clever for them and that I am
super-intelligent. I am inclined towards the latter :-D
Re: massey ferguson 6480
Possibly:-\ but maybey it is that the "younger men" think
that you are stupid:-\ I have seen it happen! 2 very
stubborn (And very thick) men trying to explain each others
tractors "best points" while i was trying to get some work
done! in the end they were still arguing over a massey
6160 and a ford 7840 (if i remember correctly!) but i had
finished clearing this field of silage bales (that they
asked me to help with) on my own with a leyland!! so in
the end who had the best (and most productive) tractor??
Re: massey ferguson 6480

Your tractor was the most productive.

But the two others saved a lot of fuel and had a nice chat!
:-D :-D
Re: massey ferguson 6480
Yes, the others worked smart ;-)
Re: massey ferguson 6480
hows the 7490 doing now any good hard days work :-P
Re: massey ferguson 6480
Since completing around 60hectares of very heavy first cut
silage with a Mengele SH40 and some round baling, it has
done the fertiliser spreading. The only problem during this
time was that it ate its engine fan surround. This is a
known problem with Sisu engined tractors up to around a year
ago and there is a stronger fan shroud soon to be fitted.
The tractor really does fly through work and it is amazing
how much more productive it is than my NH and Same
semi-powershifts, even on jobs like fertiliser spreading. It
just shifts so smoothly and accellerates and decellerates so
quickly. The rate of accelleration between the two
programmable speeds [SV1 and SV2] can now be set by the
operator as well as general speed changes by lever or pedal.
The tractor just keeps getting better and better :-)
Re: massey ferguson 6480
is it true massy ferguson are updating the 7400's so they
have the same vario 'box as the new fendts rather than the
old tecnolgy
Re: massey ferguson 6480

They already use the latest production and unique MF
software and driver interface technology and this is updated
dynamically. My tractor has had several software updates
with some minor and some major changes in the way it drives
as a result.

Where do you get your funny ideas from?
