John Deere 9510 (with 30 ft front) direct heading blue peas, Northern Tasmania January 2007. Crop grown on light sandy soil, so was a bit variable.

I didnt see the sample in the tank but saw the peas from this field being dressed (cleaned) on Friday & it didnt look like a bad sample (were a few split ones + a few bleached ones but generally a good sample).

Yes Bushel, agriculture is a major thing here in Tasmania; mixed farming mostly. Main crops are Potatoes, Wheat, Poppies, Process (Green) Peas, Barley, Apples, Cherries, Onions & Ryegrass Seed.

Regards,

TC.

No poppies are a narcotic (drug) crop. Check out some of my other posts under Case IH & Massey Ferguson.

I have a feeling here in Tasmania it is 3.4 or 3.5 metres gtech. There are certain requirements for escort vehicles & flashing lights / warning signs too.

Yes, some of the roads are, out in the country & in the towns. Wider than this there are problems + too much traffic gets held up too (cant get past).

that sounds like you have good roads but
not good farmers rights

You have such huge trucks but your restrictions
for ag machinery are almost the same like in germany
where you can go to 3m without car
around 3,2 with a car
and at 3,5 you need special papers
dont really get why you have such laws in such a wide
country.
Yeah running a header behind a 1 ton is really differnt:)
I have seen trucks with ballers behind and other
things in canada.

thanks for the informations!!
