    8 yrs here massive difference, wore out the first machine at 12000 hrs second one still going strong......

    Thanks SDman, I've been out of the game since 2012. The D60 MacDon is still pretty popular down here although some guys are going to the Queensland made Midwest fronts as they make them up to 60' for guys running controlled traffic.

    Since I assume you mean MacDon...... pretty sure all of the belt fronts up until recently were supplied by them and rebadged as Case IH.
  4. Tell me about stripper heads

  5. 4500 VibraShank

    I'd strip it and take the seals to a hydraulic or seals specialist. They should be able to match them.
  6. Long time forum member passes away.

    Sad to hear it Boog, at least he's with Nancy now. Glad Ozfarm and I visited them when we were over a few years back.
  7. Awww, who let you out.....
  8. Since only the US and Bhutan are the only two countries not to use metric I think the world population may have it already solved......
  9. greenie weenie quadtrac question

    Hence why I bit my tongue..... he just sprouts Random figures as fact and still thinks $1 mill is a lot of money, when he said $17 mill I nearly asked which dealer.....
  10. greenie weenie quadtrac question

    In the little vintage machinery club Ozfarm and I are part of we have an old fart that is a one eyed D**re guy he loudly declared the other day that the green team spends " $1 million per month on R&D " I bit my tongue......... his other classics are that JD have 64% of the market share in Oz ( they don't...) and that JD invented the rotary combine but it wasn't worth it.... oh and JD made a $17 million profit last year.... didn't have the heart to tell him that CNH posted $303 mill last Quarter......... he is the epitome of the JD sheep...... Sigh...
  11. Till you want to go tiny and you divide an inch by 1000......
  12. You were the one that asked for a liquid measurement in the thousands..... And not absolutely, we measure grain in Kgs per hectolitre for delivery standards here in the west but that's it. I would assume we still sell tanks in gallons because as you say no one knows that we have larger liquid measurements in metric or bothers to use them.
  13. We do, after litres it goes decilitre (10L) hectolitres (100L) then Kilolitres it would be 2273 DL, 227.3 HL and 22.73 KL .... That said 5000 gallons is easier to visualise.
  14. Hardi is Danish and would use BSP ( British standard pipe) Metric doesn't need fractions it also makes more sense from a scientific and mathematical standpoint. For example to convert kilograms to grams or tonnes you just shift the decimal point either way. You can convert in you head in seconds without really thinking about it as opposed to imperial that has no set pattern, then you throw in US and U.K. Units into the mix and it gets confusing.
