Re: Renault ares low pressure limp mode, help plz!

Hi Mark and welcome to the forum :) I'm certainly no expert but if it comes out of limp mode when you select 4wd, it suggests something electronic to me, particularly as you'd found filings in the system...possible sensor contamination? As I said, I'm no expert by any means, so hopefully someone wit...

Threaded mounting points

Bit of a random question...but does anyone know if the threaded mounting points in the cab (on the bar across the middle of the windscreen, for example) are a standard, generic thread common to most brands? Looking to mount my new Trimble EZ250's RAM arm to it but can't find bolts to fit in my bolts...

Re: Ares 620 brake issue

It does sound like air or a leak!

I'm assuming you put fresh fluid in? Only other possibility I can think of is maybe water in old fluid freezing (if it's been frosty) and stopping flow/pressure build up? An almighty long shot, I grant you! ;)

Hope you get it sorted soon...

Not sure about specific Temis wheel weights, guess they're fairly generic. Is water ballasting an option (or am I being a bit old-skool?)?

Re: Middle pedal

Hi Chuck and welcome to the forum :)

Not familiar with this tractor but guess the extra pedal could be the diff lock?

Can't think why there'd be two fuel gauges though!

Could you post a pic, might make it clearer..

Re: Great to find Renault tractors community

Good news, hope it meets expectations! And definitely a bonus to get it with a new loader!

Shame about the passenger seat but hopefully the cab's big enough for you to take a small person on short trips:-)

Re: Great to find Renault tractors community

That seems like a fairly reasonable price given the condition and the new loader which must be about 7-8000 euros alone? Do the same year Masseys/Cases comes with a new loader too? Yes, it'll be a John Deere engine - head gaskets can be an issue with these too but you see plenty of high hours exampl...

Re: Great to find Renault tractors community

Hi Viuks and welcome to the forum:-)

That looks like it's in very good condition, especially the loader (as John says, is it new?).

What's the asking price? The loader on its own would be a fair bit!

Hi Lothar and welcome to the forum:-) I'm not familiar with your model exactly but would have thought it'd have a heater matrix and not be electric heating (or not entirely). Of course, maybe there are different options for colder climates like yours, with auxiliary heaters and the like? I'd imagine...

Baler twine tension

Random question but wondering can give a vague idea of how tight the twine should be in a conventional square baler? I'm getting bales where the twine is loose on one side (admittedly when feeding rounds through manually) and trying to work out if it's uneven feeding or the tension in the twine is t...

Or out on the right console (can see the fan controls on the pillar here)?

So, you're probably here because you currently have a Renault tractor in your fleet. Now, if you're considering a replacement, which brand would you go for?

Re: How many tractors?

Just the one for me and not really a farm either, more a smallholding at 60 odd acres :oops: :D

But, as above, considering a second for light duties e.g., hay-turning in front of baler etc.
