Machinery news: legal-checking your trailer and test-driving the Golf GTI

By on
With the harvest under way, it's time for a refresher on just what is and isn't road legal when it comes to trailers. There is also a new combine app from New Holland and we test-drive the Golf GTI.
With the harvest under way, it's time for a refresher on just what is and isn't road legal when it comes to trailers. There is also a new combine app from New Holland and we test-drive the Golf GTI.

In this week’s machinery pages, we take a look at some of the RSA rules governing weight limits for agricultural trailers. It’s worth calculating this for the trailers you intend to use for harvest to make sure you don’t fall foul of the revised laws as introduced on 1 January 2016.

On the subject of harvest, New Holland has introduced a new app to maximise their combines' output to eke out the last drop of efficiency from the machine.

Martin Rickatson has a new look at an old name – Arbos. A name that has history in Italy with combines, but is to be rolled out across Europe in the guise of tractors. With the backing of a major Chinese off-road equipment manufacturer, Arbos is sure to gain some traction.

Alistair Chambers test drives a car that has a lot of history in Ireland – the Volkswagen Golf GTI, a car that hasn’t lost its mass appeal despite its many reincarnations.

Simon Henley looks at a period in the 1960s when equal-wheel-drive tractors were popular. As he discovered, it took a lot more than just adding two more large wheels to make this formidable tractor of its era work.
