Richard, I was told to spread so I did, just have to wait and see if it was the right thing to do.

Philip, It certainly is better than the 6920 I used to use and it actually uses less fuel per acre.

Nice pics :-)

By the looks of the weather you will be hoping for some sunshine, to get that grass growing.

Re: 7820 Spreading fertiliser
fbaxter ,they are a good tractor much better hydralics than 7810, but that was its only weakness,7820 picks our Dowdswell 6 up like its not there but the 7810 used to stuggle when plough muddy. ;-)

Tas, The rest of the field has slightly more grass I must have picked the wrong place to take the photo.

Philip, Yeah its been a really good tractor so far, it only has 850 hours on it so not had it to long. Your dowdswell must be lighter than a lemken we demoed a 7810 and a 6 furrow lemken, as soon as the plough got muddy I couldnt get it off the ground.

Re: 7820 Spreading fertiliser
fbaxter nice ride . Can you tell me more about that GPS device , what is the device name ? How precise is it ? How much money it cost and can I install it in my old tractor ?

Re: 7820 Spreading fertiliser
Ratarko, That GPS device is john deeres own system called starfire, I think it costs around £2500. There are two levels of accuracy SF1 which is accurate to around 30cm and SF2 which is about 5cm but you have to pay a subscription for SF2. There are other companies which make cheaper systems and still as accurate, some of these are around £1000 these are easy to fit to any tractor. Try searching for gps guidance and you should get some pages to look at.

Re: 7820 Spreading fertiliser
andy_d, We've not had it that long but so far its never been any trouble, on the tractor its just for guidance and auto steer on the combine.
