Tractor test 

Kubota M5111:

Focus for this month's tractor test is the bigger of the two M5001 models, the M5111.

Practical test

Seven big square balers - Part 1:

Last summer we managed to gather big square balers from all the leading manufacturers, where they were put through their paces in a comprehensive comparison. On test are the Case IH LB434Xl RC, Claas Quadrant 5300FC, Fendt 1290S XD, John Deere L1534 HC23, Krone BP1290 XC and HDP VC models as well as the Kuhn LSB1290 ID OC.

Driving impression

BvL V-Mix Drive Maximus Plus 21-2S:

With self-propelled diet feeders getting a lot more interest in the UK we take a closer look at BvL's return to the twin tub market.

JCB Loadall CommandPlus:

JCB has a new cab for its best selling Loadall telehandler range - bigger quieter and more gadget packed.

Maschio Unico:

Farmers and contractors looking for a new plough are currently spilt for choice. The latest Maschio Unico models from importer OPICO onlly add to the decision making dilemma. So should you be buying one?

Amazone Cenius 3003 Super:

We test the latest generation of Cenius tine cultivator from Amazone complete with a new quick fit point option.

Fendt Rogator:

All the changes to the Rogator trailed and self-propelled sprayers

Used machinery

Amazone ZA-TS spreaders:

Amazone ZA mounted twin-disc fertiliser spreaders have been around for decades, with the ubiquitous ZA-M spearheading the company’s 24m plus spread width range from 1990, the subsequent 36m ZA-M (still available new) and 48m ZA-M Ultra models proving widely available on the pre-owned market at prices of £5,500 for decent examples of the latter. It is, however, the newer and less common ZA-TS models, that started to sell from 2013, that we consider here.
