    Hi great pics thanks for posting them, Why do you have a snow blower on the front and another one on the back .

    And any major reason for the change to Massey from JD.

    The snowdrift was hard as concrete and the front blower was not man enough so had to turn the other one around, the boss wanted to try massey and see how it compares reliability wise to the jd's.

    Here are some pics of the cow house.

    The slurry is dragged of the floor with these, 1 on each side, and goes into a large diameter pipe and down to the basement slurry storage.



    Two winches pulls the "trolleys"



    Other side.



    Started with some drilling, no point in waiting for the snow to go away :P





    Ad-blue troubble with zhe Fendt so currently using the dealers Massey demotractor :/





    Our last "old" type Fendt in action with the new harrow.


    Oh Deere! Snow + hill + slurrytanker = bad idea

    What do you wonder about?

    Its fully automatic with 2 big fans in the roof and you see the holes with the chaffs on the walls which closes and opens to regulate the airflow, I think.

    During the winter we have had some Claas prototypes for testing, the one with loader is the new Arion which will start production sometime in 2014, and the larger one is the new Axion 800 which was revealed at Sima this year, both had CVT transmissions.










    Axion 800 undercover

    Very interesting pictures Tinemelk. The bonnet looks modified on the Axion 900? Do you know what CVT transmission they have put in the tractors? What was your verdict on them?

    Think the bonnet and cabs were from the 900 series, they were put together outside the factory so they used existing stuff on the outside and new stuff on the inside I think


    I wont say anything on how they performed as these were early prototypes, but they both had emergency stops fitted hehe

    Thank you for the explanation. I was talking to the Claas importer a few days ago. He told me one of the Axion 800 CVTīs is currently demonstrating in Germany. Sadly they couldnīt get it over here. It will be a busy Agritechnica for the Claas boys!

    It looks like they are really focusing on their tractor department when they drag them all the way up here for testing.
