compact convenience

Massey Ferguson has introduced two new models to its sub-compact range of tractors, which it says can be equipped to take on multiple tasks for commercial, residential and farm work.The new 23 horsepower (17.1 kilowatts) GC 1723E and the 25hp (18.6kW) GC1725M replace MF’s 1705, 1715 and 1720 models, with styling similar to the larger tractors under the company banner.Equipped with a diesel-powered three-cylinder engine, the tractors feature a low-rated engine rpm that reduces vibration and noise, which it says will improve engine life and decrease fuel consumption.The radiator and radiator fan have been placed behind the engine in both models, pulling hot air away from the operator in order to keep both them and the engine cooler.Hydrostatic foot pedals are on the right side of the platform, while…

deere thwarts thefts

To help curb the rise in thefts of John Deere GPS equipment, a PIN code lock has been introduced Due to their ‘plug and play’ design, thieves have been targeting GPS equipment on John Deere tractors, with thousands of dollars’ worth already on the black market.In a bid to try and curb the thefts, John Deere has devised its own PIN code locking system to protect its valuable GreenStar in-cab displays and StarFire satellite receivers. This has been designed to make it impossible to use the components if they are stolen.Until now, they could only be locked and protected mechanically. However, to increase the level of protection, John Deere has introduced the built-in PIN code lock, similar to that used on smartphones, for both components.The PIN code for the…

Anew ISOBUS task controller and two new satellite correction signals have been introduced by Claas as the company boosts its precision agriculture offerings.Used in its steering guidance systems, Claas’s Satcor 5 and 15 signals are suitable for a wide range of agricultural applications, says Luke Wheeler, Claas Harvest Centre product manager for Claas JAGUAR and Greenline.“Satcor 5 provides an accuracy of 5cm, which is suitable for precision work such as drilling,” he says. “Satcor 15 has an accuracy of 15cm and is suitable for cultivating, fertilising, crop protection and harvesting applications – a reliable alternative to freely-available correction signals that have only limited usability.”Transmitted by geostationary satellites and available worldwide, the signal supports both GPS and GLONASS and is compatible with the European Galileo system.The signals can be received…
