Hi Nick,
9 foot is a pretty wide cut for just tidying up corners and bits.

I've got a 9 footer here and one of the first problems was the gate width. I had about 2" total clearance through all our gates and it was a real pain getting it through sometimes!

RE: What kind of cooling liquid for 990 and 1390

Hello Roser,

If you are in central, Eastern or North-eastern France you have much colder winters than we do here in the U.K. So check your coolant properties for your local minimum and maximum temperatures.

Bon chance - Chris

RE: Differential lock on DB1212

It is not uncommon for the diff-lock not to disengage when it's use is no longer needed. By engaging reverse gear and moving the tractor backwards a few inches the diff-lock will normally disengage.
