so im not the only one that had a 7840 with dodgy brakes

i had one on long term hire from hawks  went to a farm to pick up something  parked her up

and went into a shed to talk to one of the blokes there saw the tractor going past the window

didnt think nothing of it just thought someone was moving it

sodding  brakes released themselves and it rolled down the yard and right into the farmers astra car

write off hity it right between the 2 doors side on and the weights just caved it in big time
