Only use it when wrapping silage.
    most dealers look in the cab first paintwork can be tarted up bit once that grime is in the linings thats it our local chap recks if an operator takes time to keep cab summat like likely he pull the dipstick and throw bit grease at it nomw and again

    Re: Exceptional cab condition

    I have 2 points to make:

    I hate oil/grease/muck on the controls in any cab so i have a pair of gloves in the cab of EVERY one of my machines and put them on to do just about everything when i'm out of the cab.

    Air con makes me drowsy on a long day in a cab and i find opening a cab side window very refreshing. I even open the door on the combine depending on the direction of the dust.
    I expect this last revelation shocks and disgusts some people :lolk:

    This cab has done about 4600hrs now. Does plenty mucking out through the winter. As DB says its not hard to brush out and keep in a reasonable conditio. Our old runabout 6290's still clean up well.

    Always creates a good impression when you go to a job with a nice clean tractor and machine.

    The cab is your office and only takes a few mins a day to ensure a healthy/pleasant working environment,

    My JD has done 4400 hrs and whilst it doesnt have a carpet on the floor i would have to say it is slightly cleaner than your Massey

    ( Most of the dust comes from the floor, if you keep the floor clean your 2/3rds of the way towards a dust free cab )

    Re: Exceptional cab condition

    In my opinion if buying a second hand tractor you can tell what sort of operator had it previously by the cab condition,

    It really annoys me when I see a tractor with lumps out of the arm rests and large tears in seat cloth or lever handles/buttons missing,

    Some cabs are easily cleaned up, but others that just haven't been cared for never look right!

    Surely all the things you mention like lumps out of arm rests and levers buttons missing could be replaced by dealer when they sell them on? You are right though how the cab is looked after will reflect on how the tractor is looked after in general.

    :lolk: well the most important thing in the office is the bin for all the useless crap the postman puts thru the letterbox

    On a more serious note, the better conditon the cab the better the tractor is looked after and the more it is worth when you sell it on...

    My mate used to work on Ford tractors for a local cement works in the early 90s. Every job started by chiselling inches of concrete inside and out!. They were apparently fairly new tractors at the time but they all had the windows missing to stop concrete dust sticking.

    Thanks,

    Finally got a Uni email address I can use :lolk:

    This is true, but I often wonder how some people can be so rough with a machine for it to happen in the first place,

    I was told that one of the workers belonging to a local contractor managed to break the dynashift T bar off his 5475... how that happened is beyond me,

    I can easily relate to that. I drove one, without instructions, only knew what I had briefly red in magazines. What idiot thought it would be nice to name the gears 1234 and the powershift abcd

    These were men who were frequently driving the machine though, so would have known the ins and outs of the tractor

    Gears are normally numbered 1234 in my experience. Have you been smoking something!?

    Have been using Auto Glym Fast Glass for cleaning if I have time go over with their glass polish. The Auto Glym Aqua Wax is also decent stuff as can nip over the windows with it when doing the panel work and helps the water bead.
