Surprise....I'm back. So since the hydraulic questions I haven't had any moisture so the gyral hasn't moved an inch. For now I'm planning on using the FEL tilt hydraulics for the planter and will install the remote set up from the spare tractor when I manage to get it here.

Back to now. Great news!!! I have some moisture. Shame it's getting too late in the season to do anything with it. I hope to start working some country in October to get ready for some summer forage providing we have favorable winter rain.

For those that have used 766's for farming what range/gear should I use and what RPM/speed would be about right with this 24 run gyral.

As always. Thanks.

for any soil engaging implement you should never go faster 8 km/h or 5 MPH once you go above these speeds you will wear the points or discs really quick you will also destroy the soil structure as it moves the soil to fast and turns it to dust
I find 5 km/h is a nice gentle speed I find to ride around a paddock in easy on machinery easy on the soil and easy on me

Interesting question Urchy, lots of my decisions for speed were based on working horse speed of 4mph :ohmy: I could flash around the paddock at 25kph on my oversize tractor but the second lap would be to pick up all the busted bits.

Now I just see if I am getting the result I want and the tractor is cruisin...

Thanks guys. Does the 766 have a 'sweet spot' in the RPM range that I should be trying to achieve? I honestly can't wait to get out there and start shifting some soil. ("Urchy87 pondering" 'Only if the property was my bread winner').

Thanks ozfarm.

I hope to have time to stretch its legs in the next week or so. If I do I will try to post a video of how it goes so you all can see it at work.

Hi Urchy87

We have a International 886. Wonderful reliable tractor. Due for a paint job, but remains a lovely machine to spend a day or two driving.

Enjoy

It looks like a goer. Mine is also in need of some paint. Probably more so than yours. I have a better cab on a spare tractor. Just need to get it home so I can start the change over. I plan on giving it a clean up at that point.

886's have a D358 don't they?
