    280. With the R series the clue is in the model number.

    Hi chae I will do , hoping to get near the combine this weekend as we have another new holland out on demo on tracks but I'm working 15 miles away from it today may be a chance tomorrow , trouble is if I take any more photos they will be all the same as the others that were on here , dam shame they were all lost . as nothing new to show and I'm doing the same old thing I thought I might start boring people ,

    On one of the American channels, one of the numpties on their said how the large framed 7000 series just weren't heavy enough blar, need a bigger tractor, blar, the 8000 series I a bigger, better tractor, blar. Then someone pointed out that not only is a 7280R more powerful than an 8400, it also weighs more

    Why not, they work in conjunction with the raise lower of the drill, not a lot of hardship, make a good reference point when setting in and on sideland/ headlands, if the centre disc on front of drill is running in bottom of mark then joins will be bang on. No hassle for peace of mind IMO
