UPDATING A CLASSIC: Gaining a third spool

Our German colleagues have taken a modern classic, a Deutz-Fahr AgroStar 6.21, and given it a new lease of life by fitting a number of mod cons. Discussed here in Part 1 is adding a third spool valve to operate, in this particular tractor's case, a hydraulic top link

Last year our German colleagues celebrated 30 years of profi, so, as well as overhauling a Magnum 7120 (you can look back at that project in our May and June issues) which was put on show at Agritechnica 2019, they also ran a competition to update a classic tractor. The lucky winners were the Gößling family from Hopsten-Halverde and their trusty Deutz-Fahr AgroStar 6.21.
